About this title

Synopsis:

This outstanding study examines the origin and philosophy of Egyptian rituals, their transplantation to other cultures, and their surviving vestiges. Among the topics covered: funerary rites intended to help equip departed souls for a higher, more exalted spiritual existence; transmigration of the soul; and the rites of rebirth.

From the Back Cover:

They were the fathers of all that we today consider bizarre, arcane, and enigmatic: the priests and mystics of ancient Egypt, who located the afterlife in the West, who believed in the transmigration of souls, whose rituals have come down to us today through such secret societies as the Masons.

Did the mysteries of Egypt spread, even in ancient times, through Greece, Africa, and even Australia? What influence can the mysteries of old have on seekers after spiritual comfort today? This fascinating work, first published in 1929, connects the wisdom of old with our understanding of the arcane today, and will intrigue anyone interested in comparative mythology, ancient cultures, and modern mysticism.
