Secret Teachings of All Ages

Twenty-Five centuries of Wisdom – Discover the secrets within the symbolic figures, allegories, oral traditions and rituals of humankind – Manly P. Hall’s “magnum opus” concentrates the teachings of nearly six hundred distinguished authorities on religion and philosophy, providing an interpretation of the themes underlying the ancient mythology, philosophy, religion, rituals, and arcane mysteries of all ages. In its original format (designed by J. Henry Nash and first published in 1928) this unique volume can be treasured and passed on as an heirloom with the assurance that its in-depth studies of some forty ancient and modern systems of spiritual development will contribute to each individual’s quest for self-knowledge and philosophical awareness. “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” includes fifty-four full color plates by noted artist J. Augustus Knapp, and two hundred black and white illustrations from rare occult works and manuscripts. To this day it remains unrivaled in its scope, synthesis and graphic beauty; a must for any serious student of mystical philosophy.

“A masterful summation of the esoteric teachings of the ages.” —Huston Smith, Ph.D., Author, The Worlds Religions “Into this volume has been compressed the quintessence of a colossal learning. It is a living human document, pulsating with the mental and spiritual vibrations of a profound thinker who takes knowledge for his province and reduces whole libraries to a single tome.”—George Barron, Curator of the De Young Museum of San Francisco “Simply put, this is the most beautiful and complete occult book ever published. It represents a lifetime of research into the mythology, symbolism, and magical practices of countless cultures. From the secrets of Isis to the teachings of mystic Christianity, nearly every occult dogma imaginable is represented here…this is the definitive guide to secret societies, famous figures, and more—a must for every personal library.”—Llewellyn New Times “Manly Hall’s great work is a classic in the world’s literature. It will guide historians, philosophers, and lay seekers of esoteric wisdom for centuries.”—Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Apollo 14 Astronaut
