Apollonius of Tyana had the myth and ambiance about him equal to Pythagoras and perhaps even approaching the level the other Jewish sage - Jesus of Nazareth. The reason Apollonius is important is because he is not as much talked about and discussed. He remained much of a mystery. He never managed to become a "son of God" or get crucified. He is not the subject of countless of movies and musicals and around Christmas time his name is not a household word. Exactly for this reason he is talked about for his message as a philosopher and not trivialized and commercialized to ad naseum. Apollonius remained a mystery man for his abilities and power to transcend much of the material world and to reach God's Consciousness. Apollonius was of course; attacked later much the same way the author and his theosophical Society was attacked and called a charlatan. Read this book and decide yourself.

About the Author:

George Robert Stowe Mead (1863-1933) was an author, editor, translator, esotericist, and an influential member of the Theosophical Society. He was born in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England into a military family, and educated at The King's School, Rochester and St John's College, Cambridge. Mead became a member of Blavatsky's Theosophical Society in 1884. He abandoned his teaching profession in 1889 to be Blavatsky's private secretary, which he was until her death in 1891. During this time, he was also an assistant editor to her monthly magazine, Lucifer, which was the vehicle for her society, but principally herself. When he finally took over as its editor, he renamed it The Theosophical Review.
