The Unseen Worlds of Emma Hardinge Britten: Some Chapters in the History of Western Occultism (Used)
by Mathieson, Robert
Publisher: Theosophical History Center
Book ID: 9781883279097, 1883279097
Theosophical History Center, 90pp.
One of the lesser known and ignored founders of the Theosophical Society and one of the prominent figures in Spiritualism, Emma Hardinge Britten (1823-1899) is the subject of a major study by Robert Mathiesen, Professor of Slavic Languages at Brown University in Rhode Island (USA). Dr. Mathiesen writes:
Emma Hardinge Britten (1823-1899) is, for most people, a forgotten figure, who seems to merit no more than a footnote in the separate histories of Spiritualism, the Theosophical Society and nineteenth-century occultism. Only recently, due largely to Joscelyn Godwin and John Patrick Deveney, has her historical importance begun to be reassessed. The present monograph is meant to broaden and deepen our understanding of the several important roles which she played in public and in private throughout the years of her long life.
To this end, Professor Mathiesen includes chapters on Hardinge Britten’s early life (1823-1856), her career as Spiritualist, the identity of the Chevalier Louis de B___, his role in the publication of Art Magic and Ghost Land, the occult society in which he was a member, the “Orphic Circle,” and her involvement in the early years of the Theosophical Society. Appendices include a chronology of Emma Hardinge Britten’s life and a bibliography of her books. An extensive bibliography and notes are also included.
