Gnostic Library - Esoterica: The Journal of Esoteric Studies does not endorse any particular methodological approach to the study of esoteric traditions. It offers full-length studies such as, an exceptional examination of Renaissance magic by Wouter Hanegraaff entitled "Sympathy or the Devil" and listings of all recent doctoral dissertations and many current books in the field. The word "esoteric" traditionally refers to spiritual, initiatory, or inner knowledge. The site's primary emphasis is the scholarly investigation of esoteric spiritual traditions, with a special emphasis on Western esotericism. Western esoteric traditions are of a remarkable variety, ranging from Gnosticism and Hermeticism to alchemy, magic, Christian mysticism, Kabbala, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, and other secret or semi-secret societies. Wonderful background material and resources. - Giordano Bruno: The Forgotten Philosopher - A brief history of Giordano Bruno, the spiritual alchemist who was burnt at the stake in the year 1600, by agents of the Inquisition. A fascinating look at how the transitional Church (medieval to reformation) dealt with dissidents. Bruno was reported to have answered the sentence of death by fire with the threatening: "Perhaps you, my judges, pronounce this sentence against me with greater fear than I receive it." Need some serious, external threats for your time-traveling hero. This time and place had it all. The Alchemy Lab - Alchemy Resources for the writer or would-be practitioner. This large, content-rich site has something for everyone. It even presents two search parameters, Solar (logical) and Lunar (intuitive). It is a treasure trove of information concerning both ancient and modern alchemists. There is even a subdirectory that offers an alchemist dictionary.
