A volume dedicated to the history of occultism, from antiquity—Egyptian, Persian, Chaldean, Hebrew and Greek mystery—to Hebrew-Christian esoterism of the Essenes, Gnostics, Neoplatonists of Alexandria, the Cabalists of the Middle Ages and the modern occultism which is more or less permeated by the foregoing.
By Maurice Maeterlinck, a leading member of the Symbolist movement. Translated by Bernard Mall.
