General Update: Spring!by Styxhexenhammer666I figured it was about time for another update; as spring marches along I'm already requisitioning materials for my garden, so those of you who enjoy that series will get some new footage soon- along with massive improvements.
On the literary side, I am now about 75% complete editing DeLaurences' odd work "The Mystic Hindu Test Book"- this work covers astral bodies, spirits, crystal gazing,...
The Esoteric Basis of Christianity: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short work is one of Kingslands' additions to Theosophy; an interesting little booklet which compares Christendom with the claimed mystery religion at the core of Theosophy itself.
The words of Jesus in the canonical scriptures, as well as of Paul and others, here, are used to show that Jesus was not a believer in the kind of legalistic superstition of quasi-modern church...
Aryan Sun Myths: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is one of the best academic treatments of religious history that I have encountered. It spans a dozen cultures and many centuries in its pages, going from Babylon, Egypt, and ancient India, up through Greece, Rome, and into the then-modern period of the late 19th century.
Most of the lore here is in the form of historical quotation from Tacitus, Pliny, Caesar, and others,...
Funeral Customs: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This extremely interesting work is sadly little-known despite its scope; several thousand years of human history and a dozen or so cultures, with all funerary rites they're associated with- from the memento mori and then-modern practices back through embalming, interring, or burning corpses.
The greatest part of this work is its general mention of the slow (or occasionally...
Lore of the Unicorn: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is pure rationalism circa the early 20th century. Penned by Odell Shepard, it goes to great lengths in being as detailed as possible, not limiting itself by time period or region. Speaking of lore as separate as that of Africa and India, the tale of the unicorn (or alicorn) is rendered not simply to a misunderstood and real beast here, but takes on a wider symbology and...
The Stanzas of Dzyan: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The Stanzas of Dzyan are a short, purportedly Tibetan work which Helena Blavatsky claimed to have translated near the end of the 19th century from works she encountered in the far East. That it is essentially a short reworking of mundane Buddhist doctrine does not detract from the fact that this, above almost all other occult manuscripts, influenced the entire period of Victorian...
Nature Worship: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This exciting work, from the same series as Cultus Arborum and Ophiolatreia, is yet another look at the phallic faith by (possibly) Hargrave speaking to us from the late 1800s British Empire. This particular text is a bit more lurid and licentious than the others, and delves deeper, relatively, into sexual worship, the Maharaja, the sacred harlots and call women of ancient times,...
Ophiolatreia: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is one of the most anticipated works I have released; perhaps the most well known of the late 1800s printings attributed to (but not proven to be from) Hargrave at the time; it is a fine compilation of lore related to serpent worship and serpentine imagery.
Relating tales and anecdotal observations from dozens of sources and fixating especially on serpentine images in...
