Jewish Mysticism: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

One of a number of interesting spiritual works released by the same publisher in the 1910s, Abelsons’ treatment of mysticism within Judaism here is quite good, expansive, and sometimes dense, but technically an introductory overview of magickal concepts within Kabbalah.

Speaking of the Yetzirah and Zohar among other works, it is somewhat a work of linguistic anthropology, which makes sense, since a lot of the theological and mystic concepts of Jewish spiritual lore are fundamentally derived from the Hebrew language and number systems.

Celtic Religion: Now Available!

This short but coherent work was penned back in one of my favorite eras and styles of literature- the academic theory and archaeological/historical thought of that happy period during the rampant social upheaval of the early technological era- with its tintypes, early moving pictures, and obsession with tombs and temples.

Divided into multiple sections, it has a bit of linguistics, a bit of ancient history, a bit of then-modern archaeology, and plenty of Druidism. While some of its academic content has been largely forgotten these days (especially with regards to its very proto-eugenic view of the progression of civilization) it is still a very good work. It contains a short bibliography with other texts as well for those interested in a larger look at the subject.
