Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism (New)
Book ID: 9781585421619, 1585421618
This remarkable book is a series of profound meditations, a journey of discovery into the mysteries of Christian hermeticism. It is a classic of esoteric Christian teaching. Using the twenty-two major arcana of the Tarot as starting points for deeply Christian meditations and spiritual study, the author links together the wisdom of the Bible, the Upanishads, and the Cabala, as well as the insights of individual thinkers who have profoundly influenced western thought, from Plato down to Kierkegaard and Jung. We experience the twenty-two major arcana as archetypes on a path of discovery that leads us to recognize their timeless value in spiritual study and development. We realize that the history of these images goes back to the time of ancient Egypt even though they had been lost until the Middle Ages. The book is written in the form of letters to the "Unknown Friend" which are intended to serve, sustain, and support the hermetic tradition that dates back to Hermes Trismegistos, the founder of the ancient Egyptian culture. The aim is not only to revive this tradition but to immerse the Unknown Friend in the current, be it temporarily or forever.
This book is not about the Tarot as a game or as a means of predicting the future. As noted above, the images of the major arcana are seen as archetypes of deep human spirituality and are used as platforms for profound Christian esoteric meditations.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
