DE OCCULTA PHILOSOPHIA LIBRI TRES:
Three Books of Occult Philosophy
by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim
A new translation by Michael Estell, PhD
by Wooter Hanegraaff, Ph.D., Peter Forshaw, Ph.D.
A classic in esoteric and philosophical publishing, Agrippa’s De
Occulta Philosophia Libri Tres has stood the test of time. First
published in the early 1500’s in Latin, existing English translations
are lacking. Agrippa
cautioned his readers that he had written in such a way that the prudent
and intelligent would understand but the corrupt and unbelieving would
not; underneath his own text there was a “scattered meaning” (dispersa
intentio) that the wise would be able to extract and put together,
finding in one place the principles that would reveal the true meaning
of another passage where the significance was not evident.
Three Books of Occult Philosophy is recognized as an intellectual master work. The
current English edition is the Llewellyn
paperback (978-0875428321) list price $49.95.
While favorably priced, the most common complaint of this edition
is the archaic translation which dates to 1651, and has been updated
with modern English spelling. This is recognized by scholars and
esthetes as outdated. A new and more informed translation will be
welcomed by a large, lively audience in search of ancient wisdom and
eager to find the secrets hidden by Agrippa in his text. This new
translation will be informed by a medieval Latin scholar well versed in
the factors that most influenced thought in Agrippa’s medieval world:
contextual (medieval) history, religion, and astrology, as well as the
works of Lodovico
Translation, introduction, footnotes and citations provided by
the foremost scholars of hermetic and esoteric studies, Dr. Michael
Estell, Dr. Wooter Hanegraaff, and Dr. Peter Forshaw.

SHINING LIGHT ON DYING AND DEATH
9 Keys To Creating A Healthier Relationship With Mortality
by Reverend Judith Johnson, D.S.S., Ph.D.
When we conjure up
images of death, why is it we picture the Grim Reaper rather then the
Bright Welcoming Light? What

wow, oh wow!” Combining
Western Pragmatism with Eastern Buddhism the Reverend Dr.
Judith Johnson provides a system for facing mortality
and dealing spiritually and positively with the death taboo that exists
in our culture. Dr. Johnson has endorsements from Marianne Williamson,
Arianna Huffingtom, and Prof. Robert Thurman, with others to come.
Her first book, The Wedding
Ceremony Planner (Sourcebooks 2013) has sold over 50,000 copies.
She is a tireless promoter. She is a counselor and life coach and she
writes for Huffington Post.
