Sphinx to Christ
An Occult History
From Sphinx to Christ
is the engrossing story of the eternal search for knowledge of our
origin, evolution, and destiny as spiritual beings. Edouard Schure
lucidly and masterfully traces the course of this quest from the
primordial wisdom expressed in the Riddle of the Sphinx; through the
legends of antediluvian civilizations and the traditions of India,
Persia, Babylon, Egypt, and classical Greece; to the pivotal figure
of Christ, who renews ancient mysteries and embodies new ones for
the continuing development of humanity.

Sinai to the summit of Tabor, from the secret sanctuaries of Egypt
to the sacred groves of Eleusis. Along the way, he brilliantly and
painstakingly gathers clues to solve the most basic mysteries of
human existence. Here is a classic that sheds new light on the
ongoing evolution of the physical and spiritual world, and the
probable future of the cosmos.
with intensity and profound insight, From Sphinx to Christ
invites readers to share in the aliveness, freshness, and the
excitement of spiritual discovery that first motivated the author.
This work stands as a major work by the man Rudolf Steiner
considered "one of the best guides for finding the path to the
spirit in our day". Steiner went on to say that Schuré's writings
"can awaken within every human being a premonition of the solution
of the riddles of existence."
