Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

His life is shrouded in mystery, lost to the depths of ancient history, but that did not stop French writer and occultist EDOUARD SCHURÉ (1841-1929)--author of such other cryptic works as From Sphinx to Christ: An Occult History and The Great Initiates: A Study of the Secret History of Religions--from delving into the life and teachings of the sixth-century BC thinker Pythagoras.

Highly speculative, wildly romantic, and impenetrably obscure, this daring work assures us, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, that Pythagoras--whose ideas are said to have influenced Plato, Aristotle, Copernicus, and many other philosophers and scientists who came after him--"was acquainted with the eternal principles of the universe and their application," that he "had learned the secrets as to the past history of religions, continents, and races," and that he, in short, invented the esoteric science of fusing all human knowledge and spirituality into one easy-to-grasp form.

First published in English in 1906, translated by FREDERICK ROTHWELL (b. 1869), this is a replica of a 1923 edition. Surely one of the strangest books ever written, it is certain to mystify and enthrall fans of the occult. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
