In the spring of A.D. 587, John Moschos and his pupil Sophronius the Sophist embarked on a remarkable expedition across the entire Byzantine world, traveling from the shores of Bosphorus to the sand dunes of Egypt. Using Moschos’s writings as his guide and inspiration, the acclaimed travel writer William Dalrymple retraces the footsteps of these two monks, providing along the way a moving elegy to the slowly dying civilization of Eastern Christianity and to the people who are struggling to keep its flame alive. The result is Dalrymple’s unsurpassed masterpiece: a beautifully written travelogue, at once rich and scholarly, moving and courageous, overflowing with vivid characters and hugely topical insights into the history, spirituality and the fractured politics of the Middle East.

Nicodemos (1749-1809), a monk of Saint Athos dedicated to asceticism and learning, was one of the most influential Orthodox writers of the last two centuries. His Handbook, written during the Age of Enlightenment in Europe, shares an exalted vision of human nature, but a vision that proceeds from the truths of revelation as interpreted by the Greek Fathers, not Descartes.

In his third book William Dalrymple has dug deep to present the case of the Middle East s downtrodden Christians. More hard-hitting than either of his previous books, From the Holy Mountain is driven by indignation. While leavened with his characteristic jauntiness and humour, it is also profoundly shocking. Time and time again in the details of Dalrymple s discoveries I found myself asking: why do we not know this? The sense of unsung tragedy accumulates throughout the chapters of this book&From the Holy Mountain is the most rewarding sort of travel book, combining flashes of lightly-worn scholarship with a powerful sense of place and the immediacy of the best journalism. But more than that it is a passionate cri de coeur for a forgotten people which few readers will be able to resist Philip Marsden, Spectator

USE THESE HOLY MOUNTAINS! Late at night, on July 23rd, 1958, on a barren mountaintop in Devon, England, a Western Master of Yoga held a rendezvous with a Cosmic Master from the Planet Venus which forever changed the future of mankind upon Earth. Tremendous Spiritual Power from the Cosmic Being, through the Yogi, prevented a dangerous war in the Middle East and Charged the mountain as a New Age Power Centre. Thus began a modern odyssey which was to give to humanity 19 Spiritual Power Batteries—The Holy Mountains Of The World Charged In Operation Starlight. The Yoga Master was His Eminence Sir George King, Founder/President of The Aetherius Society, who had been designated Primary Terrestrial Mental Channel for Interplanetary Parliament in 1954. Operation Starlight and the 19 new Holy Mountains were to become a vital cornerstone for the building of a New Age of World Peace and Enlightenment soon to be born upon Earth. Thousands of people—ordinary people except for their desire to serve their brothers—have climbed these mountains; have opened their hearts to contact the mighty Power; and have sent this outward through Prayer to suffering humanity. The Holy Mountains Of The World are there for YOU, whoever you are! Whatever your age, race or belief, their Power will flow through you! Read this history. Then CHOOSE and ACT, to become one who helps to build the New Age!

While in medical school (which I did not have the privilege of completing), once a week we had a small group discussion class called Focus On Problems. Each group had a leader, a member of the medical school staff or someone closely associated with the school, usually an MD or Ph.D. Our group leader was Dean of the Medical School, H. David Wilson, MD. One class period focused on working with patients of different ethnic backgrounds. Dr. Wilson asked me what were some of the traditions of my tribe in regard to medicine that would be helpful for a doctor to know. My reply was that I had been raised like a white, that I had grown up learning about various herbal and natural remedies, but that I knew nothing about the specific medical traditions, ceremonial or secular, of my people.I had always longed to know of the traditions of my people before that, but circumstances of my family history had not allowed it. That question in the Focus On Problems class caused that longing to intensify into a sharp pang of longing that would not be satisfied until many years later. While in the first two years of medical school as a nontraditional student, I was in an environment that encouraged the development of the knowledge of Native American traditions. We had Native American speakers that came and elaborated on Native American traditions. One area that was lacking was tribal histories, but what academics label prehistory. I commented to her that when white man came, they did all they could to destroy our social and religious fabric, so the old traditions were not passed down to most of the remaining members of the tribes. “Now we know nothing of our old history. There is nothing left. The white side of my family history is easy to know, but not my Cherokee and Choctaw side.” She replied by saying that, yes, many of our peoples have lost their old traditions, and it is sad.

There isn't just one Bible: there are many sacred books to be found all over the globe that claim to be the word of God, that purport to offer the only true path to eternal life, and that name all disbelievers in them as infidels. But they can't all be right, and in this foundational work of modern atheism, American spiritualist KERSEY GRAVES (1813-1883) lays out, in clear, concise, often mocking terms, the basis for denying the divine inspiration of all of them. Discover. . seven obscure Oriental Bibles . the "infidels" Bible . the moral defects of the Ten Commandments . unfulfilled Bible prophecies . errors in Bible facts and figures . 277 Bible contradictions . heathen customs appropriated by God . the impossibility of a person God . and much more. This is essential reading for students of comparative mythology and modern freethinkers. Also available from Cosimo: Graves's The Biography of Satan and The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors
