      Traces of a Hidden Tradition in Masonry and Medi?val Mysticism

      Five Essays

      by Isabel Cooper-Oakley

      Excerpt


      Mystics, visionaries, dreamers of vain dreams have been the names which the scoffers have always thrown at those who counted the world as nought compared with the treasure of the unseen life, and who devoted their lives to this divine science, and tried to reach an understanding of its laws. And as we trace out the records of the past it will be clearly seen that the Theosophical development is but another link in a wondrous chain of mystic teaching which stretches far back into the night of time.

      Such a claim must be proved and its pretentions shown to be accurate, but it is only by careful researches in the historical dust-bins of the middle ages that these data can be disinterred, and the chain of evidence rendered complete. Then it becomes evident that Theosophy is that glorious wisdom religion which includes in its scope all religions and all philosophies.
