Journal of the Alchemical Society

The papers and discussions delivered at their meetings were printed in the Journal of the Alchemical Society – and it is this very rare journal that is now, for the first time, presented in its entirety. This new edition includes the whole contents of the Journal (papers, discussions, reviews and reports of meetings), together with the original ‘Constitution and Rules’ of the society and lists of officers, and much new, supporting material: brief biographies of the contributors, a bibliography of their relevant publications, an annotated list of recommended further reading, a list of advertisers in the journal, and a general index. New illustrations have also been added, including portraits, facsimiles and views of the society’s two meeting places. In addition, there is an historical introduction by Dr. R.A. Gilbert, the historian of Victorian and Edwardian esotericism, and a Foreword by Professor Mark Morrisson, author of Modern Alchemy: Occultism and the Emergence of Atomic Theory. Now, with the The Journal of the Alchemical Society made available in compact form, enthusiasts for alchemy can enjoy its fascinating papers, and scholars can benefit from a new resource for their researches.

THE DOCTRINE OF ANGELS

There are records from the earliest times describing the existence and activities of the spiritual beings we call angels. In one form or another, accounts regarding their involvement in events taking place within human society are to be found in all religious cultures. The source material for these accounts reaches back in time through the Greco-Roman era into the ancient and diverse roots of the classical world. It is, however, a vast subject that is far beyond the scope of a single volume to embrace in its entirety. Thus, in this work Edward Langton, the author, discusses the nature of angels as understood in the historic Christian Church - outlining the teaching concerning angels which prevailed in the Church from the time of Augustine” and onwards.

Psychism and Spirituality

This paper is entitled: Psychism and Spirituality – the Rosicrucian Dilemma, was first read at a Rosicrucian Conference in Bournemouth 2010. it expresses some of my personal reflections on the work of a Rosicrucian, particularly in the context of the FAMA & CONFESSIO, in which, as I understand it, the distinction between Psychism and Spirituality is essential to the accomplishment of the Great Work; by which I mean the spiritual regeneration of the soul of both the individual and of humanity.
