Banyen's Description: 

Like no other book of the 20th century, The Secret Teachings of All Ages is a codex to the ancient occult and esoteric traditions of the world. Students of hidden wisdom, ancient symbols, and arcane practices treasure Hall’s magnum opus above all other works.

Manly Palmer Hall (1901–1990), founder of the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles in 1934, was in his early 20s when he set seriously to work on this encyclopedic outline of the Western esoteric tradition. The book describes in detail the most ancient theory of education which was in the keeping of the Mystery schools. It took him six years to finish the book and it was first published in 1928. Integrating more than 600 sources on the Western wisdom traditions, this masterwork has previously been available only in much higher priced editions.

Now published in a trade paperback reader’s edition with includes over 100 illustrations and a 16-page colour insert reproducing some of the finest illustrations of the original book, this grand synthesis is a must for every serious student of mystical philosophy.

“A masterful summation of the esoteric teachings of the ages.” —Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions

Among Manly P. Hall’s many other books are The Secret Destiny of America, Freemasonry of the Ancient Egyptians, and Man: Grand Symbol of the Mysteries.
