The Magical Writings of Thomas Vaughan Also Known As Eugenius Philalethes

A Verbatim Reprint of His First Four treatises; Anthroposophia Theomagica; Anima Magica Abscondita; Magia Adamica; and the True Coelum Terrae. The Magical Writings of Thomas Vaughan constitute an explanatory prolegomena not only to the general history of practical transcendentalism, and to the philosophy of transcendental art, from the standpoint of a Christian initiate, but they are special directed to the interpretation of alchemical symbolism; they claim to provide the intelligent reader with a substantially fresh revelation of that mysterious First Matter of the Magnum Opus. Thomas Vaughan enlarges the theoretical scope of alchemical processes, and delineates the spiritual evolution of humanity.

The Magical Writings of Thomas Vaughan

"Some of Vaughan's reflections remind us of Jacob Boehm, but the Welsh mystic is, as a rule, more easily followed than his German brother. Indeed, with a few exceptions, the sense is clear enough to make the volume agreeable reading even to the uninitiated.... The seventeenth century was an age of plain speaking, and Vaughan, when differing from anyone, sometimes uses terms more forcible than elegant. Mr. Waite supplies some interesting information about the history of occultism in his 'Introductory Lecture on the Esoteric Literature of the Middle Ages, and on the Underlying Principles of Theurgic Art and Practice in Western Christendom.'" -Glasgow Herald.

When Souls Had Wings

The idea of the pre-existence of the soul has been extremely important, widespread, and persistent throughout Western history--from even before the philosophy of Plato to the poetry of Robert Frost. This book offers the first systematic history of this little explored feature of Western culture. Terryl Givens underscores how durable (and controversial) this idea has been throughout history, highlighting the theological dangers it has represented, and revealing how prominently it has featured in poetry, literature, and art.

The Theomagical Reformation of Thomas Vaughan

The first critical examination of Thomas Vaughan as a theologian and or magician in his own right. Through close readings of Vaughan's published writings, analyses of their public reception, the case is made for Vaughan as a "theomagus", or Christian magician. A reformist thinker, noting parallels between creation and alchemy, his role in developing this theological framework was significant in seventeenth-century British theology.

Wrestling the Angel

In this first volume of his magisterial study of the foundations of Mormon thought and practice, Terryl L. Givens offers a sweeping account of Mormon belief from its founding to the present day. Situating the relatively new movement in the context of the Christian tradition, he reveals that Mormonism continues to change and grow. Givens shows that despite Mormonism's origins in a biblical culture strongly influenced by nineteenth-century Restorationist thought, which advocated a return to the Christianity of the early Church, the new movement diverges radically from the Christianity of the creeds. Mormonism proposes its own cosmology and metaphysics, in which human identity is rooted in a premortal world as eternal as God. Mormons view mortal life as an enlightening ascent rather than a catastrophic fall, and reject traditional Christian concepts of human depravity and destiny. Popular fascination with Mormonism's social innovations, such as polygamy and communalism, and its supernatural and esoteric elements-angels, gold plates, seer stones, a New World Garden of Eden, and sacred undergarments-have long overshadowed the fact that it is the most enduring and even thriving product of the nineteenth century's religious upheavals and innovations. Wrestling the Angel traces the essential contours of Mormon thought from the time of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young to the contemporary LDS church, illuminating both the seminal influence of the founding generation of Mormon thinkers and the significant developments in the church over almost 200 years. The most comprehensive account of the development of Mormon thought ever written, Wrestling the Angel will be essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the Mormon faith.
