* What does the word 'Arcadia' really mean?

* How do the Egyptian Mysteries fit into Francis Bacon's overall Great Vision?

* What is the Hermetic Art of Alchemy?

* How did the Elizabethan age 'voyages to the New World' relate to Francis Bacon?

In Part I, this book introduces the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries and Hermeticism, and the landscape temple in which those alchemical Mysteries took place. It gives a rare insight into the greatness of Egypt and its influence on our western culture. In Part II, the story of Francis Bacon's amazing life story is continued (from 1579-1585), this time dealing with the secrets of Arcadia, the English Areopagus or 'brotherhood' of poet-initiates who largely created the English Renaissance, the founding of the first group of new (or Baconian) Rosicrucians in Arcadian Britain, and the secret beginnings of modern Freemasonry. A stage of his life when he was only 18-24 years old, Bacon set in motion the first stages of the vast Rosicrucian scheme for the eventual enlightenment, prosperity and peace of the world.

This scheme, for which Bacon devised a special method to enable it to be carried out, was the dream of the Rosicrucian sages and their disciples since the golden days of Atlantis. This method, Bacon's famous Art of Discovery, is explained in this fascinating book, as is Arcadia, one of the primary mystery names given to the state of the world in a Golden Age. Four hundred years ago, Francis Bacon spelled out for the very first time, in scientific terms, the truth which the sages of all times have known and tried to teach the largely unsympathetic, uncomprehending world.

The whole Arcadian imagery and allegory is that of a Utopia or Paradise on earth that might be achieved.....are we, now, living at the beginning of this long-awaited 'New Age' envisioned by Bacon? And if so, how will you and your life be affected or transformed?

From the Inside Flap:

Arcadia is an account of Francis Bacon's life as he lays the foundation in England of his new work and fraternity in learning. The author describes the creation of the English Areopagus, a group of scholar-poets, and Bacon's use of pseudonyms and masks to disguise the authorship of his early poetic works. The Egyptian Mysteries and Hermeticism, of which Bacon was an inheritor, are also introduced in this fascinating volume. Explore the complete knowledge and awareness of the true meaning of 'Arcadia'.
