Initation and Magic in the Quest for the Spiritav Julius Evola179Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.In this important study of the meaning of the Grail, one of Europe's greatest esoteric philosophers discloses the pre-Christian and initiatic sourcesof this symbolic motif that is so central to Western mythology and culture.He demonstrates how the main features of the legend are are from an older tradition analogous to the great heroic sagas and cycles of the North,and that the Grail itself is a symbol of initiation. Evola uncovers the hidden meaning in the often surreal adventures of the knights who searched for the Grail, interpreting them as inner experiences and tests for theseeker. He also explores the history of the myth in the Middle Ages, its use by the Knights Templar and the Cathars, its legacy during the decline of the Holy Roman Empire, and its links with Rosicrucianism, alchemy, andMasonry.This excursion into the realm of the Grail throws new light on an endlessly fascinating subject.
