In this translation of Solovyoff's work, the translator, Walter Leaf, expresses his sense of the extreme literary ability with which Solovyoff has drawn his picture. In his case, which he believed was felt by others, Solovyoff has rather raised than lowered the opinion of Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. That she was an arch impostor was known before, but Leaf's slight acquaintance with her had not enabled him to grasp the secret of the fascination which she exercised over so many of those with whom she came in contact. Still less could the fabulous stories of her admirers explain the riddle. In translating the Modern Priestess of Isis, he felt for the first time that he could see her as a human being, and to some extent sympathize with her in the troubles, the self-made troubles, of her unique career. Whether Solovyoff's story be true or no, Leaf had no doubt of its substantial truth and Mr. Solovyoff has at all events given us a psychological study of extraordinary interest.

Commentary from the Theosophical Review, Volume 16: STRANGE how utterly unjust a paper can be towards anyone who does not fit into its own particular little religious groove, and how illiberal is "Liberalism." The Spectator of July 13th says, in a brief notice of Solovyoff's slanderous romance, A Modern Priestess of Isis: “That Madam Blavatsky, the "modern priestess of Isis," was a fraud, and that she confessed herself to be such to him, is abundantly certain. It seems that she took up theosophy when she found that the game of spiritism, which she had practised for some time in the United States, was played out. Her Theosophy itself was borrowed from certain writers on occultism, as is set out in detail by an expert in these subjects, Mr. W. Emmette Coleman. All this being settled, let the woman and her doings be buried and forgotten, except, indeed, her career should be wanted as a lesson and a warning. What a " Nemesis of unfaith " it is when those who have shaken off belief in religion as a folly out of which the world ought to have grown, fall victims to the frauds of an immoral and lying adventuress.” It "is abundantly certain" from this paragraph that the writer thereof has not read Mme. Blavatsky's books, and is merely repeating, parrot-like, the gossip that floats about on the surface of society. Yet he would probably be surprised if he realised that such repetition of uninvestigated slanders is as immoral as anything that he ascribes to Mme. Blavatsky. The childish and petulant impatience to have " the woman and her doings" out of the way brings little credit to a journal which plumes itself on its "Christianity," but which shows more of the spirit that cried "Away with him, away with him," than of that spirit of equity and charity which should characterise those who claim to be specially favoured with religious knowledge. Mme. Blavatsky and her doings cannot "be buried and forgotten" while increasing numbers of thoughtful people owe to her that definite proof of the existence of the Soul that popular Christianity fails to supply, and that definite training of the spiritual life in man which few modern Christian teachers are able to impart. Her memory will live, not because she could perform marvels but because she could feed starving Souls with the bread of spiritual Wisdom; and because she showed that Religion was not a beautiful dream but a solid verity, based on truths in Nature, not only on hopes in Man. Her memory will live because she opened the way to Initiation in a modern world where only the faint traditions of the Higher Life survived, where Science scoffed at Intuition and where Reason was undermining Religion, where belief in the Invisible World was derided as a folly or apologised for as an amiable weakness. Many persons know that she possessed Occult Powers, and could wield the subtler forces of Nature; but if every phenomenon she performed had been a weak and wrongful accommodation to the demands made upon her by materialistic enquirers, she would still remain the heroic witness for the reality of the Occult Life, the possessor of spiritual Wisdom and its imparter to those who desired to receive it. Vainly will impatient scribblers cry for her obliteration, while those she taught are constantly verifying her statements by their own experience, and are helping others to take the steps which they themselves took under her guidance. Her children in Occultism rise up and call her blessed; her imperfections will "be buried and forgotten" and her great life-work will remain.

Since the late nineteenth century, the Theosophical Society has been a central force in the movement now known as the New Age. Just as the Communist Party was considered 'old hat' by peace activists in the '60s, so the Theosophical Society was looked upon by many in the 'spiritual revolution' of those years as cranky, uninteresting, and passé. But the Society, like the Party, was always there, and-despite its relatively few members-always better organized than anybody else. Since then, the Society's influence has certainly not waned. It plays an important role in today's global interfaith movement, and, since the flowering of the New Age in the '70s, has established increasingly intimate ties with the global elites. And its various spinoffs, such as Elizabeth Clare Prophet's Summit Lighthouse, and Benjamin Crème's continuing attempt to lead a 'World Teacher Maitreya' onto the global stage-just as the Society tried to do in the last century with Krishnamurti-continue to send waves through the sea of 'alternative' spiritualities. Guénon shows how our popular ideas of karma and reincarnation actually owe more to Theosophy than to Hinduism or Buddhism, provides a clear picture of the charlatanry that was sometimes a part of the Society's modus operandi, and gives the early history of the Society's bid for political power, particularly its role as an agent of British imperialism in India. It is fitting that this work should finally appear in English just at this moment, when the influence of pseudo-esoteric spiritualities on global politics is probably greater than ever before in Western history.

Ancient Egypt has always been a source of fascination to writers, artists and architects in the West. This book is the first study to address representations of Ancient Egypt in the modern imagination, breaking down conventional disciplinary boundaries between fields such as History, Classics, Art History, Fashion, Film, Archaeology, Egyptology, and Literature to further a nuanced understanding of ancient Egypt in cultures stretching from the eighteenth century to the present day, emphasising how some of the various meanings of ancient Egypt to modern people have traversed time and media. Divided into three themes, the chapters scrutinise different aspects of the use of ancient Egypt in a variety of media, looking in particular at the ways in which Egyptology as a discipline has influenced representations of Egypt, ancient Egypt's associations with death and mysticism, as well as connections between ancient Egypt and gendered power. The diversity of this study aims to emphasise both the multiplicity and the patterning of popular responses to ancient Egypt, as well as the longevity of this phenomenon and its relevance today.

Two Columes in a Slipcase! HPB's first major work, originally published in 1877. The most astounding compendium of occult facts and theories in Theosophical literature. It proclaims the existence of mystery schools under the guardianship of men who are servants for truth. It outlines a movement by the Guardians of the Ancient Wisdom to preserve and protect the ageless truths, until in later times they would again become known for the spiritual benefit of all.
