This is an excellent text for anyone interested in Esoteric teachings from ancient times onward. The author covers just about anything you've heard of and probably a lot that you haven't. The color plates and illustrations are excellent and there is an amazing amount of information packed into this book. One problem arises, however: some of the information is outdated when newer discoveries are taken into account. The author wrote the book something like 80 years ago and though it's been through revisions, it still contains information that probably should be updated. That is a rare instance however, and I'd say 99% of this book is accurate, right on the money, and DEFINITELY worth the price. You probably won't find another source that covers as much as well. Buy it, borrow it, whatever, it is worth the time to read.

dies ist ein Buch, daß ich immer wieder gern in den Händen halte. es ist einfach übersichtlich, gut und zugleich auch von einer gewissen Art Leben erfüllt.
Allerdings empfehle ich dem Deutschsprachigen Leser, sich ein Wörterbuch zu besorgen, das vor 197x verlegt wurde; es ermöglicht noch zusätzlich zum Schulenglisch andere perspektiven - es ändern sich ja die sprachen mit der Zeit.
Ich muß es immerwieder betonen: Dieses Buch ist gelungen!

There are a handful of books that contain the essense of knowledge of mankind. The Secret Teachings is one of those. Combine it with Blavatsky's Secret Doctine and Isis Unveiled, Alice Bailey's Treatise on Cosmic Fire, and Douglas Baker's Dictionary of Astrology for the 21st Century, and you have a full house.

Manly P. Halls' magnum opus. This book historically depicts the secret teachings and symbols veiled from common man (and only revealed to initiates of the secret schools)throughout history. Another book by Manly P. Hall that is mandatory reading is "What the Ancient Wisdom Expects of its Disciples". Other recommended authors/books for those on the path are; the books by Vera Stanley Alder, Rudolph Steiner, Alice Bailey, Mark Hedsel ("ZELATOR"), Three Initiates ("KYBALION"), Peter Tompkins ("Secret Life of Nature"), and Sri Chinmoy ("Meditation"). Then those on the path can join the Rosicrucians (AMORC).

This book is highly-priced; there was a $30.00 version. I bought the $500.00 (yes, five hundred) signed, limited edition. That's how much I thought of Manly P. Hall. He was a great scholar, and also had the great pleasure of hearing him speak at the Philosophical Research Society in 1990, shortly before his death.

Having read classical and comparative philosophy and religion for nearly 20 years, I think you really cannot do better than this book.

You might want to look for a more economical version, but my understanding is that the illustrations are very attractive in this edition.

If you appreciate Joseph Campbell, but wish to pursue the more mystical side of religion, Manly P. Hall is an excellent resource. Whereas Campbell was a self-proclaimed "maverick" with no particular allegiance to any one form of religion, Manly P. Hall was a 33 degree Freemason, and clearly was sympathetic to the notion that at one time in our history there was a system of mystery religions in which invocation of deities was practiced, and actually achieved. (Classic example, if memory serves, being Plutarch's tale of the invocation of the Neoplatonist Plotinus' guardian angel in the Temple of Isis in Rome by an Egyptian priest.)

If you are sympathetic to "the old religions", and want a sympathetic scholarly accounting, - again, it is hard for me to imagine how you could do better than buying this book.

This book changed my life. It introduced me to a more profound way of approching "religion" problems and inconsistencies. The book first overviews the prevailing materialistic philosophies, and then outlines the elements of secret knowledge residing in what might otherwise appear to be but psychological archetypes in the mythic tradition, the misunderstanding of which has given rise to materialistic philosophy. But there is indeed more to our western traditions than is generally realized. Inside the myths and allegories of all ages is a truth that very few appreciate. This book outlines in lucid detail, those truths that the world desperately needs, and that have been destroyed by time, wars and arrogance, and consolidates them under one cover. The books physical beauty alone makes it one of the most impressive books ever published. The plates make great meditation mandalas. The bibliography list is devoted to source works that have been neglected--many still not in print or even translated. To actually read the book is equivalent to a college course in the mysteries systems of antiquity, which were indeed the first schools in the historical record. The book is but an outline focusing on the "occidental" mysteries..but a very profound one. Not since the Secret Doctrine of Blavatsky had a book so comprehensibly melded the western tradition. And not since has a book come close to this one, first published in 1928.

I can not add better insight to the review given by "finnegan@exploremaine.com". However, there is strength in numbers, and I want to add my voice to encourage those who might be interested in reading this book. It's true there was a paperback version of this book as well.
This particular work focuses on some of the mysteries from the cradle of Western Civilization. It is also interesting to review this from the stand point of mainstream religions and the odd periphery of the origins of these (mostly western) religions. Although there is much more to the book than just that.
If you enjoyed "Focault's Pendulum" this book gives great background to some of Umberto Ecco's arcanum. Conspiracy theorist will also enjoy the section on Francis Bacon.

Manly P. Hall here offers us a glimpse of some of the most difficult and interesting topics, ranging from the Egyptian Pyramids, to the Apocolypse. He has found information and writtings of people spanning centuries, from different cultures and in many different languages. This is a HIGHLY enjoyable work for anyone interested in the OCCULT, or interested in any aspect of the symbolism of mythology and religon. ;+) Buy it! It's wonderful.

Best summary of the world's mysterious teachings and secrets that I have had the privilege to read. Excellent insight into facets of life that most of us do not even realize exist. Be sure to check this one out. The segment on Who Really Wrote Shakespeare is worth the purchase price alone, not to mention the Knights Templar and other Masonic orders. Really good stuff!
