The Secret Teachings of All Ages is perhaps the most comprehensive and complete esoteric encyclopedia ever written. The sheer scope and ambition of this book are stunning. In this book Manly P. Hall has successfully distilled the essence of more arcane subjects than one would think possible. He covers Rosicrucianism and other secret societies, alchemy, cryptology, Kabbalah, Tarot, pyramids, the Zodiac, Pythagorean philosophy, Masonry, gemology, Nicholas Flammel, the identity of William Shakespeare, The Life and Teachings of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus, The Qabbalah, The Hiramic Legend, The Tree of the Sephiroth, and Mystic Christianity. There are more than 200 illustrations included here (and in the trade paperback edition) many of which have been omitted from other publisher's editions of this book. This is essential reading for anyone wishing to explore esoteric knowledge.

Review: The Secret Teachings of All Ages

User Review  - Steve Werner - Goodreads

A fantastic tour of esotericism, covering pretty much all the major topics from secret societies, to occult lore/history(Atlantis), the Qabbalah, Alchemy, Astrology, ceremonial magic, symbolism, and much more. Despite being an enormous tomb, I couldn't put it down. Read full review
