This is a story of a young scholar, born in Wales, who takes a ride on a train from Paris headed for the Balkans to study under his mentor Professor Aristophanes, a professor of paranormal psychology in Cairo. Given an assignment of reading the professor's seminal work: "Paranormal Psychology. Being a Treatise on Evolution of the Arcane and Mystical Rites of Kalliste (Thera/Santorin) Society of the Ancients" and "The Egyptian Book of the Dead," Nathan becomes mesmerized and has a difficult time accommodating the vagaries of a train trip and the intellectual and emotional stimulation of the books and some of the people on the train. Time and space become meaningless or of extraordinary importance depending on the state of his thought.

Unlocking the Poetry of W.B. Yeats undertakes a thorough re-reading of Yeats' oeuvre as an extended meditation on the image and theme of the heart as it is evident within the poetry. It places the heart at the centre of a complex web of Yeatsian preoccupations and associations—from the biographical, to the poetic and philosophical, to the mythological and mystical. In particular, the book seeks to unlock Yeats’ mystifying aesthetic vision via his understanding of the ancient Egyptian "Weighing of the Heart" ceremony. The work provides a chronological narrative arc that looks to use the theme of the heart as it recurs in the poetry in order to circumvent and overcome more established frameworks. Its purpose is to offer refreshing ways of conceptualizing and building alternatives to more deeply entrenched, but not entirely satisfactory arguments that have been offered since Yeats' death in 1939, while demonstrating the centrality of the occult to Yeats' art.

This collection of essays explores the rhetoric and practices surrounding views on life after death and the end of the world, including the fate of the individual, apocalyptic speculation and hope for cosmological renewal, in a wide range of societies from Ancient Mesopotamia to the Byzantine era. The 42 essays by leading scholars in each field explore the rich spectrum of ways in which eschatological understanding can be expressed, and for which purposes it can be used. Readers will gain new insight into the historical contexts, details, functions and impact of eschatological ideas and imagery in ancient texts and material culture from the twenty-fifth century BCE to the ninth century CE. Traditionally, the study of “eschatology” (and related concepts) has been pursued mainly by scholars of Jewish and Christian scripture. By broadening the disciplinary scope but remaining within the clearly defined geographical milieu of the Mediterranean, this volume enables its readers to note comparisons and contrasts, as well as exchanges of thought and transmission of eschatological ideas across Antiquity. Cross-referencing, high quality illustrations and extensive indexing contribute to a rich resource on a topic of contemporary interest and relevance. Eschatology in Antiquity is aimed at readers from a wide range of academic disciplines, as well as non-specialists including seminary students and religious leaders. The primary audience will comprise researchers in relevant fields including Biblical Studies, Classics and Ancient History, Ancient Philosophy, Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Art History, Late Antiquity, Byzantine Studies and Cultural Studies. Care has been taken to ensure that the essays are accessible to undergraduates and those without specialist knowledge of particular subject areas.

Religion has always been a playground of Ritual Theater, and often the mythic pageants of old are rife with secret knowledge held by spirits. Since the awkward transition between religion and science began centuries ago, much of the wisdom that brings change and progress has been labeled evil and infernal, to be handled with great caution. Although powerful and dangerous, sometimes it is only a genial and politic attitude that is needed to keep these devils in check. Artist, Chaos Witch, and Rogue SubGenius, Rev. Panik EVlynn Bedlam uses their ability at illustration & magik to create an intense yet whimsical and sometimes darkly humorous world of characters inspired by ancient esoteric concepts, brought to life in contemporary forms. Using a style the artist describes as OPop Comic Surrealism, O they have created a post-modern spiritual characterization of complex and severe concepts that faced our ancestors and who continue to challenge us in new and more complex forms every day.

The Pyramid Texts are the oldest body of extant literature from ancient Egypt. First carved on the walls of the burial chambers in the pyramids of kings and queens of the Old Kingdom, they provide the earliest comprehensive view of the way in which the ancient Egyptians understood the structure of the universe, the role of the gods, and the fate of human beings after death. Their importance lies in their antiquity and in their endurance throughout the entire intellectual history of ancient Egypt. This volume contains the complete translation of the Pyramid Texts, including new texts recently discovered and published. It incorporates full restorations and readings indicated by post-Old Kingdom copies of the texts and is the first translation that presents the texts in the order in which they were meant to be read in each of the original sources.
