Overview


A classic since 1928, this masterly encyclopedia of ancient mythology, ritual, symbolism, and the arcane mysteries of the ages is available for the first time in a compact "reader's edition."

Like no other book of the twentieth century, Manly P. Hall's legendary The Secret Teachings of All Ages is a codex to the ancient occult and esoteric traditions of the world. Students of hidden wisdom, ancient symbols, and arcane practices treasure Hall's magnum opus above all other works.

While many thousands of copies have sold since its initial publication in 1928, The Secret Teachings of All Ages has previously been available only in oversized, expensive editions. For the first time, Hall's celebrated classic is now published in an affordable trade paperback volume. Literally hundreds of entries shine a rare light on some of the most fascinating and closely held aspects of myth, religion, and philosophy from throughout the centuries.

More than one hundred line drawings and a sixteen-page color insert reproduce some of the finest illustrations of the original book, while reset and reformatted text makes this edition of The Secret Teachings of All Ages newly accessible to readers everywhere.

    A Good Occult Primer

    This book has a good general introduction into the systems of Western occultism, or what some call, the Western Esoteric Tradition. It does bear some of the markings of its time, however: for example, the other believes in the Baconian theory about Shakespeare, claiming that William Shakespeare lacked the proper education and could not have written the plays attributed to him. A whole book could be written on that topic, so I am not going to demonstrate the theory's flaws here. He also, as a Freemason, seeks to link every single esoteric tradition to modern Freemasonry. It makes the book come off more as a conspiracy theory than anything else; Freemasonry, without a doubt, has absorbed a great deal from the traditions preceding it, but they are not explicit, strong links. In reverse, as well, the book tries to link all traditions back to Atlantis; the same criticism applies: any possible links, to a potentially non-existent continent, are tenuous. Read this book if you are interested in a general history of the occult, with focus on individual systems, or even if you just need a little inspiration for writing, which is why I bought it.

    What a research tool... worth every penny!

    Who wrote about the masons and made millions? Oh yes, and stuff about the vatican and just keeps on going... well... if you know NOTHING about the masons EVERYTHING IS IN HIS BOOK RE; SIGNS, SIGNALS, SECRET ORGS... and what was this about all the research (Mr. Brown!)

    Also, when I was very, very young and he was very, very old -- Not Mr. Brown -- but the author, I heard him speak in L.A. Fabulous mind, outstanding library still standing... visit it some time. It's called the Philosophical Society on Wilshire near downtown...

    ?

    Hearsay writing; no documentation. Some will like it, some will not. A reference work of some value, I suppose.
