The Secret Destiny of America & America's Assignment with Destiny (New)
by Hall, Manly P.
Book ID: 9781585426621, 1585426628
Manly P. Hall's two classic works on the hidden history and occult mission of America -- The Secret Destiny of America and America's Assignment with Destiny -- each redesigned and reset in this special two-in-one volume. Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, The Secret Destiny of America presents evidence for a mysterious Great Plan at the core of the nation's founding. Pre-eminent occult scholar Manly P. Hall argues that humanistic, esoteric, and mystical orders collaborated in setting aside the American continent for a world-shaking experiment in enlightened self-government and religious liberty. The author locates the seeds for this plan one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era, exploring figures such as the Pharaoh Akhnaton, Plato, and Plotinus.
Once hatched in the colonial age, the great experiment involved:
Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the United States, the prophecy at George Washington's birth, or the role of a mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, The Secret Destiny of America is the sole volume to link together the fascinating strands of esoteric history that lie at America's heart.
- Christopher Columbus, who may have been an agent of esoteric order connected with Lorenzo de Medici and Leonardo da Vinci;
- English intellectuals Bacon and Raleigh, who played unique roles in the court intrigue surrounding the settlement of the continent;
- founders Washington and Franklin, who had esoteric associations;
- and a network of Rosicrucians, mystics, and Freemasons whose ideals of religious freedom traveled to American soil.

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

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.
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...
