Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Alphonse Louis Constant, better know by his pen name Eliphas Levi, was a master of the traditional Rosicrucian interpretation of the Kabbalah. He was born in France in 1810, and through the offices of the parish priest, was educated for the church at SaintSulpice. He was later expelled from seminary for teaching doctrines contrary to those of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1824 Levi began studying the occult sciences, and wrote about magic and the Kabbalah for the next three decades. His other books include "Transcendental Magic", "Mysteries of the Qabalah", and "The Book of Splendours". -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
In this book, Alphonse Constant reveals - by "re-veiling" - all the keys to Practical Qabalah & Gnosticism (which are NOT the same thing). If you want a purely rational, academic discourse, this book is NOT for you. But if you can, in the words of Robert Graves, think "poetically" rather than "prosaically," this book is the ultimate Key in the English language to practical Qabalah.
In this book, "Levi" pulls a Universal Doctrine of the inherent Divinity of every human out of a number of sources, and shows how the Jewish tradition of Qabalah has said nothing less than this in it's entire history. In his own special way, he "re-veils" this Doctrine while simultaneously giving the creative thinker the keys to deciphering these veils.
It is true that Constant seems a bit confused concerning certain details of Jewish writings & general philosophy, but he succeeds in identifying the essential points, especially as they are mirrored in other traditions & writings. In this respect, some of A.E.Waite's footnotes appear to be "red herrings" for the prosaically minded (even to the point of contradicting statements of his own in Waite's own writings).
Eliphas Levi, a priest dating back to the 1700's sends out his communication on the dogma of Magic and the elements that play the part in creating a transcendental experience for the individual initiate. Insight follows anyone who gains experience in life. All things are known within us and can be released through a series of rituals done repetitiously; yet, with honor and truth and with complete faith and knowledge. The well known Kabbalah to the occultist stands as the testimony of the greatest achievement to the western mind in the form of metaphysics, while meditation and ritual is, more or less, influenced by the eastern mind.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

A fine example of a book of the words-on-paper variety. What you get from this book, like with all books, depends on what you bring. Lesen Sie weiter...Am 29. Februar 2000 veröffentlicht
