The Secret Doctrine of the Rosicrucians
A lost classic from a Mystery Man of the Occult
First published in 1918 by MAGUS INCOGNITO, one of the American occultist WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON’S dozen or more pseudonyms, The Secret Doctrine of the Rosicrucians is said to contain portions of The Arcane Teachings, an anonymous 1909 work now attributed to Atkinson. An introduction by occult scholar and collector of esoteric ephemera CLINT MARSH shows us just how relevant this classic occult text remains today.
The Rosicrucians are a truly secret society whose philosophy comes to light in different ways at different points in history. In the 1600s they issued a set of manifestos calling for an enlightened revolution that would reshape society into a more democratic ideal. The American Founding Fathers were influenced by these manifestos. Rosicrucianism is alive and well today with more than half a million followers seeking and keeping its many divine secrets.
Experience the enigma of Metempsychosis.
Ponder the puzzle of the Universal Androgyne.
Muse over the mystery of the Sevenfold Soul of Man.
This book reintroduces a new generation of readers to the Rosicrucian ideals, as well as to a myriad of connections between occult concepts as varied as alchemy, reincarnation, the astral plane, auras, Eastern and Western mysticism, and the “evolution of mankind” among seven esoteric versions of planets in our solar system.
