The Occult Book A Chronological Journey from Alchemy to Wicca

Tos misteriosos y figuras históricas claves en todo el mundo John Michael Greer profundiza en el estudio de dos milenios de tradición ue abarcan desde los aluimistas pioneros paganos a los rituales paganos La Piedra Filosofal y la cábala el prime. This book follows the same setup as Death and the Afterlife which appears to be in the same series The authors are not the same though but if you ve read one of the books you know what you re in for It s a nice little journey through the ages this time dealing with the history of occult traditions and phenomena There is one page per topic each and every one of which comes with a picture painting or image connected to that subject The content is definitely relevant beginning from the ancient Greeks moving through the Platonists and the Neo Platonists continuing through the middle ages and all the way up to the recent 2012 speculations I particurlarly enjoyed reading about the late middle ages and the renaissance where we become familiar with some highly influential yet relatively unknown names Giordano Bruno Marsilio Ficino Tomasso Campanella and Paracelsus are a few examples all being important figures in their timesWe also follow the known beginnings and evolution of Tarot as well as some sections on the rosecruzians probably didn t spell that right Individuals such as Manley P Hall Madame Blavatsky and Aleister Crowly also get some space There is even a section on Freud and his split with Carl Jung the latter who gets a much favorable mention in occult contextsJust like with any book with a similar layout it s good for anyone who wants an introduction to a subject but that is not it s main attraction if you ask me Rather it s the visual aspects with its vivid and epic pictures that really leaves a trace in one s memory In other words it s one of those books you just want to have in your bookshelf a show and tell kind of thing Bring it out whenever you have a friendly visit of an intellectual nature4 hidden deities out of 5 possible
