The Four Great Religions: Now Available!


This well made Theosophical work is, I think, my favorite by Besant thus far. It avoids some of the more strange material in that path associated with ethnic issues and focuses almost entirely on religious history- namely that associated with Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Christianity, proclaiming that those are akin to four epochs of spiritual development, with frequent allusions to their holy scriptures.

According to Besant there are similarities in these four spiritual systems that must be noted, in preparation for the arrival of a fifth age- the literal new age heralded by a new enlightened master.
