A Critical Study of the Christos-Messiah Tradition. "This book is the narrative of what happened back in the third century of Christian history, when the Christian movement passed over from the hands of the Philosophers of the Greek world into those of the unphilosophical and worldly minded Romans and suffered the total extinction of its original light of esoteric spiritual meaning, the historical result of which was the sixteen centuries of the Dark Ages. This book is the natural companion and complement of The Lost Light."
