From "Aarab Zereq" to "Zos Kia Cultus," this is the most up-to-date, comprehensive guide to the history, philosophies, and personalities of Western occultism.

Written by an occult scholar and practitioner with the assistance of hundreds of experts in the field, this volume presents the latest in scholarly research and points out errors in previous writings-revealing truths much more interesting and dramatic than the fictional histories that obscured them.

The New Encyclopedia of the Occult is an invaluable reference guide to magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, Tarot, palmistry, and geomancy; magical orders such as the Golden Dawn and Rosicrucians; important occultists; and religions and spiritual traditions associated with occultism such as Wicca, Thelema, Theosophy, and the modern Pagan movement.

 

"This is an important source for libraries to have in their collections to assist anyone seeking information about the many aspects of occult traditions." --Booklist

"Greer delivers a well researched, informative, and unbiased encyclopedia... Highly recommended for all public libraries and where interest merits." --Library Journal

Well researched encyclopedia of the occult. What I love about it is that the author, even if he's a druid and a magician, remains open minded, yet objective. None of the terms in the encyclopedia ... Přečíst celou recenzi

Perfect. Exactly as advertised. Invaluable. This is the go to, without equivocation. I have yet to think of a subject which isn't covered satisfactorily. I would suggest the reader also pick up Lewis Spence's "Encyclopedia of Occultism" for cross-reference. Přečíst celou recenzi
