Overview

A unique book, based on years of research, which throws a penetrating light on the secret traditions of early Christianity and shows that number is at the heart of being. David Fideler illustrates how the Christian symbolism of the Spiritual Sun is derived from numerical symbolism of other ancient divinities.
The early Christian Gnosis die not spring up in isolation, but drew upon earlier sources, many of which are revealed in this book for the first time. Special emphasis is placed on the Hellenistic doctrine of the "Solar Logos" and the early Christian symbolism that depicted Christ as the Spiritual Sun, the illuminating source of order, harmony, and light. Includes illustrations.
