Zohar or "Splendor": "The Book of Concealed Mystery," the
book of equilibrium or balance, concerning the central point, at which rest
succeeds motion; "The Greater Holy Assembly"; and "The Lesser
Holy Assembly." Together, these three books examine the gradual
development of the creative deity, and of creation itself. Author S.L.
MacGregor Mathers, a founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, presents
his exegesis in a clear and scholarly style. Three fold-out charts enhance this
volume's value as a tool for understanding the Kabbalah and enjoying the
benefits of its teachings.
S.L. MacGregor Mathers (1854-1918) was a prominent scholar and leader of the occult movement in Great Britain at the turn of the century. A lifelong fascination with mysticism and Celtic symbolism led Mathers to hold high office in the Rosicrucian Society of England, and eventually to become a founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He is also well known for having been a key tutor to Aleister Crowley.
