The Case of Valentin Tomberg: Anthroposophy Or Jesuitism?
Born in 1900 in Russia, Valentin Tomberg was for many years an enthusiastic student of Anthroposophy. In 1945, however, he converted to Roman Catholicism and completely turned his back on the former phase of his life. By the time of his death in 1973 he had written two major works--Meditations on the Tarot and Covenant of the Heart--in which he presented much esoteric knowledge, though under the spiritual authority of the Catholic Church.
What is the mystery behind Tomberg's life? Prokofieff provides his views in this forcefully argued and uncompromising book.
