Six Lectures on Occult Science, Theosophy and the Catholic Faith
by C. G. Harrison
Introduction by Christopher Bamford

Most spiritual impulses at work today can be traced back to the nineteenth century explosion of esotericism. In The Transcendental Universe, one of the most enigmatic and thought-provoking works of the period, C. G. Harrison, a mysterious and unknown figure, examines Theosophy from an esoteric Christian standpoint and separates the true gnosis from the false. With great personal courage, he makes public much esoteric knowledge that had remained hidden within the occult orders. Self-initiated and unaffiliated, he speaks authoritatively on: the secret history of Spiritualism and Theosophy; the nature of initiates, esoteric societies, and secret brotherhoods; occult science; the true nature of God, matter, evil, and the evolution of consciousness; the angelic hierarchies: the Archangel Michael, Beelzebub, and the War in Heaven; the coming sixth epoch, and more. Previously known only to esotericists, this important work is now made available to the general public ninety-nine years after its original publication.

. . . a most remarkable and fascinating piece of work. I'm delighted to see it being reprinted." - Colin Wilson

"The re-issuing of Harrison's [work] is a felicitous and significant event. Written during the highest flowering of the Occult Revival of the nineteenth century, this work contains challenging ideas which all persons with an interest in the inner traditions of East and West will welcome. Admirers of Blavatsky, Papus, or Steiner, as well as those attracted to the gnosis of C. G. Jung or of the Nag Hammadi scriptures cannot afford to pass by this unique and interesting work." - Stephan A. Hoeller

"Christopher Bamford has unearthed a. treasure of esoteric history: Whether one agrees with Harrison or not, one marvels at his inside knowledge of occult movements, his great intelligence and balance, and his vision of a 'Christian Polytheism' for the coming epoch. The masterly introduction and notes show that this solitary adept has a claim on us all, perhaps even more now than in 1893." - Joscelyn Godwin
