The Religion of Ancient Palestine: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Here is another creation series work, one which I finished a week ago but which got caught up in Amazons' massively slow processing system. It is partly linguistic but unlike the last two titles is mostly about religious history and how the various spiritual systems that would contribute to Judeochristianity co-evolved and borrowed imagery and words and ideas from one another. It...
The Talmud: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little booklet is a fairly good guide to the basic understanding of the Jewish Talmud- rather than provide a massive and complex overview (as many works on Judaism) it condenses things pretty nicely and was meant mainly for the casual studier of religion more than for those intending to become experts- indeed the original edition had several dozen pages of ads for similar...
The Tabernacle: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
And now it's time for a happy surprise- one final occult work to release before 2019 begins. It's quite a great one also- compiled from sermons and writings from the renowned Presbyterian George Junkin. It covers the architecture of the Jewish Temple in minute detail and offers (sometimes inferred) symbolism and other asides. Altogether it's painstakingly detailed, and the amount...
Jewish Mysticism: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
One of a number of interesting spiritual works released by the same publisher in the 1910s, Abelsons' treatment of mysticism within Judaism here is quite good, expansive, and sometimes dense, but technically an introductory overview of magickal concepts within Kabbalah.
Speaking of the Yetzirah and Zohar among other works, it is somewhat a work of linguistic anthropology, which...
The Biography of Satan: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work comes courtesy of the spiritualist movement of the mid and late 19th century. It is at once an academic work, a work of general demonology and Satan-lore, and a social tract aimed at the fire and brimstone preaching of its era. The elaborate synthesis of its sources and its authors' opinions make it an important work within the historical cycle of late pre-modern...
Semiphoras and Schemhamforash: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Now we turn to a work by Luppius; this time a lesser known gem of the occult literary world, usually combined with the Books of Moses into the same sort of philosophical bundle.
The overall system here is largely categorical and related to Judaist mysticism; it classifies the names of the Hebraic God, the names of his subordinate cosmic forces, the names of different stages of...
