Book Description:
Two powerful motives weave beneath the surface of our spiritual history: the desire to know and the desire to love. The secret history of the West is the story of saints, mystics, alchemists, poets, and philosophers trying to unite these two streams and celebrate in the world and in their own persons the sacred marriage of Logos and Sophia, Word and Wisdom. This book, an impressionsitic history of the Western spiritual tradition, follows from anceint Greece to modern times the traces of those who sought to know the world and themselves, while realizing that they must overcome themselves to love the world and one another. Included are chapters on Pythagoras, Sophia, Celtic Christianity, the Troubadours, the Grail, the Rose Cross, Renaissance spirituality, Romanticism, nineteenth century occultism, and twentieth century esotericism. Inspirational interludes place the whole within an atmosphere of Christian mysticism. Tracking this endless trace of our evolving relationship with one another, God, and Nature, we begin to understand how human consciousness has changed and evolved and perceive the present purpose of humankind.
