The Light of Egypt by Thomas H. Burgoyne

Post  dirkcloete on Fri May 15, 2009 8:10 am

Title:The Light of Egypt Volume I
Author: Thomas H. Burgoyne
Published: 1889

Note: Volume II is available on the net but not Volume I

Thomas H. Burgoyne, an astrologer and founder of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, was born April 14, 1855, and grew up in his native Scotland. Spontaneously psychic, he claimed that as a child he came into contact with the Brotherhood of Light, a group of discarnate, advanced beings who attempt to guide the destiny of humankind. Today that group continues as the Church of Light. At a later date he met a M. Theon, purported to be an earthly representative of the brotherhood who taught Burgoyne about the Brotherhood.

Burgoyne moved to the United States around 1880 and soon afterward his writings began to appear in various periodicals. He was brought into contact with Norman Astley of Carmel, California, who also claimed to be in contact with the Brotherhood of Light. Astley suggested that Burgoyne write a set of lessons to introduce the brotherhood's teachings to the public, and Burgoyne accepted Astley's hospitality at Carmel while he worked on the lessons. They were published in 1889 as The Light of Egypt. The writing of the lessons occasioned the establishment of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor as an esoteric occult order and outer expression of the Brotherhood of Light. The Hermetic Brotherhood was structured with three leaders, a seer, a scribe/secretary, and an astrologer.

I'm pretty sure some of these are floating around out there... hopefully they'll turn up as submissions at some point.

I searched far and wide for vol 1 online but never found it. I ended up buying a nice hardback 2-vol set for $20 on amazon. If you have The Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor by Godwin et al, you already have most of the same material. After September I might be able to scan vol 1 for you -- in the meantime if you're in the U.S. you might try your local library's "Interlibrary Loan" service, which can produce some real gems.

Alas, research in other countries isn't typically so flexible. Here in Canada, even as faculty at a post-secondary institution, inter-library loans can prove troublesome.

Enjoy the access! Very Happy

You should also check out the "Light of Egypt" material by CC Zain (Elbert Benjamine), one of Thomas Burgoyne's successors in America:
