It includes entries on the meaning of secret symbols and the symbolism of rites of transformation, gives detailed information on the nature of all types of mythic beings, and examines the extent and context of claims to supernatural powers. The book introduces the reader to mystical traditions such as the Kabbalah, the Tarot, the Hermetic traditions and Gnosticism, putting them in their geographical and historical context, as well as looking at their sacred esoteric texts. It features biographies of leading figures in the field, recounts folklore and mythology from all over the world, examines cases of unexplained phenomena...and much, much more.show more
