Book Description:

"The Comte De Gabalis is considered a Sacred Text for Rosicrucians and spiritual adepts. It is composed of Five Discourses given by a Count or spiritual master to a student. It was anonymously published in 1670 under the title: Comte De Gabalis. The meaning suggests the Count of the Cabala as the text is cabalistic in nature. This is mentioned explicitly. The first English translation was rendered in 1680. Only in later publishings did the name Abbé N. de Montfaucon de Villars become attached to this work as being its author.

Nevertheless, the importance of who the Comte actually is, is hinted at and without saying more, it is Francis Bacon. As he rode westward to Germany--he is identified in the painting by Rembrandt at the beginning of the text as the "Polish Rider."

Because Rosicrucians and members of certain spiritual organizations, such as the "I AM" Activity or Saint Germain Foundation, believe that Francis Bacon wrote the Shakespearean Plays, it is thought that, as the Comte De Gabalis, he wrote the five discourses in the form of a dialogue in which he himself is both teacher and student."

About the Author:

"The unseen entities said to inhabit the four elements; they are composed of the finest essence of each element. The creatures of the air are called sylphs; of the earth, gnomes; of fire, salamanders; and of water, nymphs or undines. The Abbe de Villars (1635-ca. 1673) is often cited as an authority on the subject, since he published a treatise entitled Comte de Gabalis (1670), from which a good deal of what follows is drawn."
