Animism, the Seed of Religion: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is of interest potentially to two groups of people; the occultist will here find some interesting folk tales and spiritual rites from cultures then being actively studied at the height of the colonial era, and the history buff will find in these pages an interesting but sometimes outdated colonial perspective on non-European cultures. It focuses mostly on African lore but also on India and makes some mention (in the naturalistic period post-animism but prior to semimodern religion, as the theory then held) to the Mesoamericans. The categorical system isn’t entirely accurate, but it is applicable and useful.

The Tabernacle: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

And now it’s time for a happy surprise- one final occult work to release before 2019 begins. It’s quite a great one also- compiled from sermons and writings from the renowned Presbyterian George Junkin. It covers the architecture of the Jewish Temple in minute detail and offers (sometimes inferred) symbolism and other asides. Altogether it’s painstakingly detailed, and the amount of content here would take up twice as many pages were it not for the compacted writing style. It is strongly recommended to anyone with interest in the era of Moses, even if some of the historicity is taken less seriously now than in the 1860s.

Realms of the Egyptian Dead: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is one of the better, more dense pieces of Egyptology I’ve come across- one of the reasons I prioritized it in the new slew of works I have planned for the rest of 2018 into, probably, as late as mid 2020. Written by Alfred Wiedemann in the golden era of Victorian academic works, it is a broad overview of a few important topics within Egyptian pagan lore- especially focusing on the transition from live sacrifice to the use of clay figurines and similar things to lend a hand to the deceased, mummified Egyptian in the afterlife, as well as the topic of the self-contradicting nature of Egyptian lore; literally that within one burial two or more mythological tales scrawled on the tomb walls may tell stories which directly refute one another, causing legendary confusion.

It also contains a few bits about Egyptian mythology strictly related to Osiris and other deities, which is of decent import and quite interesting.
