A. Schwaller de Lubicz to the monuments, ruins, statues, and bas-reliefs of the temples of Karnak. With nearly 600 photographs by Georges and Valentine de Mire, more than 450 of which are full-page plates, this volume is the only complete photographic record of this important historic site. Because of recent vandalism many of the artifacts are no longer intact, and it is no longer possible to see many of the details captured in these images.andnbsp; andlt;BRandgt;This promenade through the temples of Karnak reveals the remains of a world devoted to an unimpeachable faith in the afterlife, a faith whose conviction seems to have exalted its builders and artists, as was the case for several brief centuries with those who constructed the cathedrals of the Middle Ages. One did not work at fashioning these stones, nor were these works sculpted under someone's strict authority; here it was necessary to act out of the heart. Every gesture in the depictions, every arrangement in the buildings, is a hieroglyph from the symbolic language of the sages who spoke to spirit and consciousness.

Synopsis:

"De Lubicz [is] a source of revolutionary insights."
Saul Bellow, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976

" The work of Schwaller de Lubicz stands in our time as an unsurpassed blending of objective scholarship and profound spiritual and philosophical vision."
Jacob Needleman, author of Time and the Soul

"In the first Renaissance, the Florentines went back to the knowledge of the ancient Greeks.In this, our planetary Renaissance, we return to the esoteric knowledge of the ancient Egyptians.The research and intuitions of Schwaller de Lubicz should be placed alongside Evans-Wentz's recovery of the esoteric knowledge of Tibet."
William Irwin Thompson, author of At the Edge of History

"Schwaller de Lubicz's great work, grounded in a remarkable insight into the science and philosophy of the ancient world, opens the way to a complete reappraisal of Egyptian civilization, revolutionizing our view of history."
John Michell, author of The New View Over Atlantis

Synopsis:

About the Author

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1887-1961) was one of the most important philosophers, mathematicians, and Egyptologists of this century. His elucidation of the temple at Luxor and his presentation of the Egyptian understanding of a special quality of innate consciousness form a bridge that links the sacred science of the Ancients to its rediscovery in our own time.
