Description

Theosophical History Center 1997, 53pp. For the musical world, Cyril Scott is a composer, but for Theosophists he is the author of the three "Initiate" books: The Initiate, The Initiate in the New World, and The Initiate in the Dark Cycle. Originally signed "by His Pupil" and only later identified as Scott, the question remained, had Scott really met a Master, Sir Thomas, or was the whole story fictitious? Jean Overton Fuller’s investigations have led her to the house where Scott really received his teachings, not in the West country but in Sussex. There it was that he was given the instruction to marry Rose “the Viola of his books” though it was given in the name of one of Blavatsky’s teachers. Who was he told that she and he had been in their immediately past life? Why had they spent seven years hesitating as to whether they should marry? Rose wrote a book, Despised and Rejected, which was the object of a prosecution, and banned. That was known. But Jean Overton Fuller has discovered that Scott also wrote a book that was banned. This banned autobiography and Rose’s novels in a labyrinthine way point up incidents and situations in their own lives and those of their associates. After the death of their link with their Teacher, they became fascinated by the astrology of David Anrias, who unfortunately put them against Krishnamurti. But H.K. Challoner, author of The Wheel of Rebirth, comes into it too, as we glimpse principally through Rose’s novels, each one a layer of an onion, to be peeled off to reveal another layer of mystery beneath.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
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...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G.

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

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...
