eBook%20Stolen%20Legacy.pdf. Anacalypsis. Anacalypsis (full title: Anacalypsis: An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil of the Saitic Isis or an Inquiry into the Origin of Languages, Nations and Religions) is a lengthy two-volume treatise written by religious historian Godfrey Higgins, and published after his death in 1833. The book was published in two quarto volumes numbering 1,436 pages, and contains meticulous references to hundreds of references.
Initially printed as a limited edition of 200 copies, it was partially reprinted in 1878, and completely reprinted in a limited edition of 350 copies in 1927. In 1965, University Books, Inc. published 500 sets for the United States and 500 sets for the British Commonwealth with Publisher's Note and a Postface. Content The work is the product of more than twenty years of research, during which Higgins tried to uncover "a most ancient and universal religion from which all later creeds and doctrines sprang". It includes several maps and lithographic plates of Druidical Monuments. Secret Teachings of All Ages. For once, a book which really lives up to its title. Hall self-published this massive tome in 1928, consisting of about 200 legal-sized pages in 8 point type; it is literally his magnum opus.
Each of the nearly 50 chapters is so dense with information that it is the equivalent of an entire short book. If you read this book in its entirety you will be in a good position to dive into subjects such as the Qabbala, Alchemy, Tarot, Ceremonial Magic, Neo-Platonic Philosophy, Mystery Religions, and the theory of Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry. Although there are some questionable and controversial parts of the book, such as the outdated material on Islam, the portion on the Bacon-Shakespeare hypothesis, and Hall's conspiracy theory of history as driven by an elite cabal of roving immortals, they are far out-weighed by the comprehensive information here on other subjects. For many years this book was only available in a large format edition which was hard to obtain and very expensive. Prisca theologia. Prisca theologia is the doctrine within the field of comparative religious studies that asserts that a single, true, theology exists, which threads through all religions, and which was given by God to man in antiquity. History The term prisca theologia appears to have been first used by Marsilio Ficino in the fifteenth century.
Ficino and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola endeavored to reform the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church by means of the writings of the prisca theologia, which they believed was reflected in Neoplatonism, Hermeticism, and the Chaldean Oracles, among other sources. The Enlightenment tended to view all religion as cultural variations on a common anthropological theme; however, the Enlightenment, which tended to deny the validity of any form of revealed religion, held in very little esteem the idea of a prisca theologia. The doctrine (if it may be called that) of a prisca theologia is held by, among others, Rosicrucianism. See also Joseph Campbell. Joseph John Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987) was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion.
His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: "Follow your bliss. " Life Background Joseph Campbell was born and raised in White Plains, New York in an upper-middle-class Irish Catholic family. While at Dartmouth College he studied biology and mathematics, but decided that he preferred the humanities. Europe While in Europe, he was highly influenced by the period of the Lost Generation, a time of enormous intellectual and artistic innovation.
It was in this climate that Campbell was also introduced to the work of Thomas Mann, who was to prove equally influential upon his life and ideas. Great Depression Another dissident member of Freud's circle to influence Campbell was Wilhelm Stekel (1868–1939). Death Joseph Campbell. James George Frazer. Sir James George Frazer OM FRS FRSE FBA (/ˈfreɪzər/; 1 January 1854 – 7 May 1941), was a Scottish social anthropologist influential in the early stages of the modern studies of mythology and comparative religion. He is often considered one of the founding fathers of modern anthropology. His most famous work, The Golden Bough (1890), documents and details the similarities among magical and religious beliefs around the globe. Frazer posited that human belief progressed through three stages: primitive magic, replaced by religion, in turn replaced by science. Biography Four times elected to Trinity's Title Alpha Fellowship, he was associated with the college for most of his life, except for a year, 1907–1908, spent at the University of Liverpool.
The study of myth and religion became his areas of expertise. Frazer was the first scholar to describe in detail the relations between myths and rituals. The first edition, in two volumes, was published in 1890. A snake shedding its skin. Frank Kmietowicz – “Kiedy Kraków był trzecim Rzymem” | Książki nie z tego świata. “Był mianowicie w grodzie Gnieźnie, książę imieniem Popiel, który miał dwóch synów; a więc przygotowywał wielką ucztę na ich postrzyżyny, na którą sprosił wielu co możniejszych panów i przyjaciół. Zdarzyło się zaś, zgodnie z ukrytym zamiarem Boga, że przybyli tam dwaj podróżni, których nie tylko nie zaproszono na ucztę, lecz zaiste bezprawnie odpędzono od bram grodu, zbiegli na podgrodzie i szczęśliwym trafem dotarli do chałupki … Przedmowa do drugiego wydania Po opublikowaniu książki “Kiedy Kraków był Trzecim Rzymem ” w 1980 roku zacząłem zastanawiać się, czy rzeczywiście wpływy niemieckie spowodowały upadek obrządku słowiańskiego Cyryla i Metodego w Polsce?
Zabrałem się znów do przetrząsania najstarszych wzmianek odnoszących się do dziejów narodu polskiego. Ogarnęło mnie zdumienie, kiedy doszedłem do wniosku ,że nie cesarstwo niemieckie, ani też bizantyńskie, ale bogomilcy przetrącili kręgosłup cyrylo-metodianizmu nad Wisłą. Rozdział I ROZWÓJ CYRYLO-METODIANIZMU 2. Rozdział II. Athanasius Kircher. Athanasius Kircher, S.J. (1601 or 1602 – 1680) (sometimes erroneously spelled Kirchner) was a 17th-century German Jesuit scholar and polymath who published around 40 major works, most notably in the fields of Oriental studies, geology, and medicine. Kircher has been compared to fellow Jesuit Roger Boscovich and to Leonardo da Vinci for his enormous range of interests, and has been honored with the title "Master of a Hundred Arts". A resurgence of interest in Kircher has occurred within the scholarly community in recent decades. Kircher claimed to have deciphered the hieroglyphic writing of the ancient Egyptian language, but most of his assumptions and translations in this field were later found to be nonsensical.
He did, however, correctly establish the link between the ancient Egyptian and the modern Coptic languages, and some commentators regard him as the founder of Egyptology. Kircher's work in geology included studies of volcanoes and fossils.
