About the Author

From an early age, David Allen Hulse diligently studied the alphabets of the ancient world. As a child, David possessed a great affinity for the alphabets of Egypt, Phoenicia, and Greece.

In college, a reading of MacGregor Mathers' Kabbalah Unveiled opened up the Hebrew alphabet-number technique of Qabalistic research. After Hebrew, many other ancient languages were decoded and studied, including Sanskrit and Tibetan. In 1979, a discovery led to the need to capture the extent of all prior Quabalistic research into one great reference work. Research is still being carried out to discover new definitions for the number series as well as new magickal systems.

Read an Excerpt

There are some books about which there is so much to say it is hard to know where to begin. One such book is David Allen Hulse's The Western Mysteries (previously published as The Key of It All, Book II: The Western Mysteries).

The Western Mysteries begins with a complete introduction to some of the basic concepts of the Western magick tradition, such as the elements and their associations, and how they evolved and changed over time. The book continues with spiritual investigations of English, Latin, and Greek.

In the section on Runes, you will find the most complete information on the Runes ever published, including the differences in their design, meanings, and sounds as they moved from culture to culture and evolved over time.

The two largest sections describe the Tarot and the Enochian system. In the section on the Tarot, you will learn how it developed into the mystical tool it is today. Then you will learn the various interpretations people have had of the cards, along with the meanings of the symbolism on them. The purpose of the section on Enochian is to give the most complete — and most correct — version of the Watchtower system ever published.

The Western Mysteries is a reference book you simply must have.

I am the author of the Western Mysteries. This is the companion volume to my Eastern Mysteries, and fully documents the alphabet symbolism found in the sacred languages of the Western mystical and magical tradtion. This volume is composed of 7 chapters that reveal the esoteric nature of Greek, Coptic, the Runes, Latin, Enochian, the pictorial language of the Tarot, and the English alphabet. Like its companion volume there are overviews for each key as well as an index to the whole. The introduction written for this second volume is over 100 pages and deals with the esoteric (rather than exoteric) nature of astrology (the symbolism of the elements, the planets, and the zodiac). This rich introduction also explains the Aztec and Mayan 20 day count calendar, the lore of geomancy, and the Masonic quest for the 'lost word'. One of the most important aspects of this second volume is the discussion of the Tarot in the 12th key. Some reviewers have noted that this chapter could have stood alone as a separate book, for it is one of the most exhaustive overviews on the esoteric nature of the Tarot. A third volume is currently in development that would reconstruct the fabled number dictionary of the Rosicrucians known as Liber Thesaurus, or Book T(sometimes TH). The two volume set of The Eastern Mysteries and The Western Mysteries should be viewed as a reference work that can be turned to again and again for help in deciphering the world of symbols and numbers that is used in every esoteric school of thought in the ancient world.
