Author: Joscelyn Godwin
Title: The Golden Thread
ISBN: 978-0835608602

In this concise survey, Godwin identifies the great movers and shakers of the Western Mystery Tradition, providing a brief history and description of each. Moving chronologically from ancient Egypt to twentieth-century Europe, he covers Hermes, Zoroaster, Orpheus, Pythagoras, Plato, the Gnostics, the alchemists and Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and the Theosophists, as well as others. Godwin views each of these traditions as stages of spiritual development, but because all stem from the perennial wisdom, the knowledge they offer can be just as relevant and transformative today as it was hundreds of years ago.

Godwin's The Theosophical Enlightenment, Music and the Occult and The Mystery of the Seven Vowels have been PMed in for inclusion in a future digest... maybe The Golden Thread will also turn up...
