9780893144043: Codex Rosae Crucis, D.O.M.A. A Rare & Curious Manuscript of Rosicrucian Interest.

With Numerous Illustrations From Early Books & Manuscripts of the Rosicrucian Order

Introduction & Commentary by Manly P. Hall

With scholars now showing new respect for the Hermetic arts and those fantastic and wonderfully devout diagrams and figures appearing in the works of seventeenth century alchemists, it was felt that now is the time to reissue Codex Rosae Crucis, considered the definitive work in its field. Invaluable for the English translation accompanying a facsimile of the original eighteenth century manuscript, as well as Mr. Hall's interpretative comments, the Codex threads together fragments of history pertaining to the Rosicrucian foundations in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Of special interest is a picture of the only known representation of the Temple of the Rosy Cross from an engraving in 1618. In his work entitled Psychology and Alchemy, the famous psychologist C. G. Jung reproduced the plate of Michelspacher's Cabala and made numerous other references to material contained in Codex Ros Crucis. Folio size, with full-color plates and two-color manuscript section.

About the Author:

Manly P. Hall was the founder of the Philosophical Research Society. In over seventy-five years of dynamic public activity, he delivered more than 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, and authored countless books, essays, and articles. In his lectures and writings, Manly Hall always emphasized the practical aspects of philosophy and religion as they applied to daily living. He restated for modern man those spiritual and ethical doctrines which have given humanity its noblest ideals and most adequate codes of conduct. Believing that philosophy is a working tool to help the individual in building a solid foundation for his dreams and purposes, Manly Hall steadfastly sought recognition of the belief that world civilization can be perfected only when human beings meet on a common ground of intelligence, cooperation, and worthy purpose.
