Excellent book! Very informative!
Short book, 90 minutes or about 150 short pages. Lots of very interesting information about this time period in France. A little bit too much about Aleister Crowley for my tastes. But overall a very enlightening book, especially the parts about Fulcanelli and his protege Eugene Cansiliet. This book claims that the manuscript for Fulcanelli’s “Mysteries of the Catherdrals” was a stolen manuscript and not meant to be published, much like the original Rosicrucian manifesto, “Fama Fraternitatis”. Some of the depictions of tantric sexual practice in this book are a little bit graphic, I’m not used to reading about such graphic details in books with “Rosicrucian” and “Alchemy” in the title, but these descriptions do help to give a general understanding of the different practices at this time and place. The lengthy description of different “schisms” within the various groups is also something not often found in books with similar titles, and perhaps somewhat unneeded. I would give this book 4.0 out of 5 stars for the reasons mentioned above. I purchased a paper copy for my library as well as this audible version. The narrator is especially good at pronouncing the endless list of French names in this book, and I find it quite helpful to have all these French names pronounced for me! The narration gets 5 out of 5 stars. And the Audible app gets 5 stars for making this somewhat rare book a part of their library of available titles!
