- The Ancient Egyptian Mysteries, Arcadia and the Arcadian Academy (The Life and Times of Francis Bacon, 1579-1585)
This is a stunning large format book published by the Francis Bacon Research Trust. The book is out of print and we have the only stock available.
It is written in two parts: In the first part the author discusses the Egyptian mystery initiations, the symbolism of which has perpetuated universal truths to this day. Part two shows how the Hermeticism embodied in these ancient rites found new expression through Arcadian symbolism.
The true meaning of Arcadia is revealed against the background of past Rosicrucian Imperator Francis Bacon’s life and the circumstances surrounding him from the age of 18 to 24 years.
