Cyril Scott and a Hidden School: Towards The Peeling Of An Onion (Used)

by Fuller, Jean Overton

Publisher: Theosophical History Center

Binding: Pamphlet

Book ID: 9781883279073, 1883279070


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.
