Book Description

A classic since 1928, this masterly encyclopedia of ancient mythology, ritual, symbolism, and the arcane mysteries of the ages is available for the first time in a compact "reader's edition."

Like no other book of the twentieth century, Manly P. Hall's legendary The Secret Teachings of All Ages is a codex to the ancient occult and esoteric traditions of the world. Students of hidden wisdom, ancient symbols, and arcane practices treasure Hall's magnum opus above all other works.

While many thousands of copies have sold since its initial publication in 1928, The Secret Teachings of All Ages has previously been available only in oversized, expensive editions. For the first time, Hall's celebrated classic is now published in an affordable trade paperback volume. Literally hundreds of entries shine a rare light on some of the most fascinating and closely held aspects of myth, religion, and philosophy from throughout the centuries.

More than one hundred line drawings and a sixteen-page color insert reproduce some of the finest illustrations of the original book, while reset and reformatted text makes this edition of The Secret Teachings of All Ages newly accessible to readers everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caretaker of Ancient Wisdom August 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read this book in its entirety about 30 years ago, having personally known Manly Hall and lectured at the Philosophical Research Society, and personally spend hundreds of hours in his magnificent library, I feel that I have a bit more to share then some of the negative reviewers. The most important aspect of this book and other Manly Hall books is that he is presenting information from the past and allowing us to make our own mind regarding what some of the ancients had to share. I found it interesting that one reviewer stated that the information is not really pertinent for today's society. I believe that the reason that you still hear of some of these people after 1500 or 2500 years is because they had something valuable to say. How many of today's philosophical and spiritual gurus will even be known in twenty years?

Manly Hall is a caretaker and the opportunity to read, contemplate and open up deeper aspects within our psyche is a gift that he has given through his numerous books and writings. I currently run a health and philosophical organization that contains more than 30,000 books from thousands of philosophers and health practitioners. I would never say that Manly Hall is the only great writer or philosopher or that all of his thoughts are the gospel...but I would say that the breadth of what he covers, the neutrality in which he expresses himself is much better than most.

This book does not have to be read cover to cover. It is a great reference book that will catapult you into many more directions.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Dated February 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a brilliant read but a quick refresher on my interest in gnostic dementia. Fun but dated. Mostly taken from a Western perspective and not enough of East Asian traditions in this...Eurocentric.

The Secret Teachings of ALL Ages (reader's edition)
The reader's edition contains more information. Since the original book was Manly P. Hall's first publication, it suffers from a lack of detail in each topic. All the topics that are covered in this book have also been covered in great detail in more recent publications by Manly P. Hall. The... Read More
