Publisher's Summary

This key to the world's esoteric traditions unlocks some of the most fascinating and closely held secrets of myth, religion, and philosophy. Unrivaled in its beauty and completeness, it distills ancient and modern teachings of nearly 600 experts. Compelling themes range from the riddle of the Sphinx and the tenets of Pythagorean astronomy to the symbolism of the pentagram, the significance of the Ark of the Covenant, and the design of the American flag.   

Acclaimed by Publishers Weekly as "a classic reference, dizzying in its breadth", this remarkable resource was compiled by the founder of the Philosophical Research Society. Author Manly P. Hall examines the secrets of Isis along with arcane aspects of mystic Christianity and other religions. Fascinating surveys cover topics as diverse as Kabbalah, alchemy, cryptology, and Tarot, along with Masonry, gemology, and the identity of William Shakespeare.

Amazingly great work by Manly P. Hall

1st of all, I redownload this book thinking the reading was a technical glitch. Sadly, it's not, and that will have you questioning what you just heard and have to back up and wonder how much if the text did you just miss, or hear the reader modify the last few words.

Aside from the performance, this is an absolute Gnostic gem and philosophical review of both history and religion. Even if you do not seek Gnosis, this complete review of nearly every religion and it's basis is one that should be referenced time and time again as it summarizes many principal teachings in good measure.

Lots of parts where phrases are repeated for a new recording but the old recording isn’t cut out

Most unprofessional narrator

The narrator keeps repeating certain phrases and words like he dont understand what he's reading.
Really annoying.
One of the worst narrators ive come across.

Deletes key information!

I was listening while following along in my book and the narrator skipped an entire section of key information!!
Stick to the book version, this audible is propaganda.
I couldn’t believe how much the narrator purposely skipped.
I want my money back!

great historic review of human thought

man's evolution is the evolution of consciousness. this book chronicles man's philosophy, cosmology and theology. you can get an idea of where we've been and that helps to envision where we need to go as a species. a great scholarly work of our time. read it or audio it!

Read the physical book until a better recording

This was a serious disappointment. Never before have I heard quite so many words mispronounced. Now, providing you can at least make out what is being said, this would be jarring but forgivable. What really makes this unlistenable, to the point that I returned it after listening for a couple hours, is that the false starts and mistakes of the reader are retained in the recording, such that the recording contains the error, a pause, and then the reader simply starts over.

I have been hoping a recording of this would be produced for ages, but unfortunately this doesn’t do the job.

Amazing body of work but poorly read.

One of the esoteric greats by one of the most incredible minds of our times when it comes to occult knowledge and history. Many of manly p halls lectures are on YouTube and I just wish he could have narrated this book, unfortunately the lacklustre reading just didn't cut it for me.
