3. Revolt Against the Modern World
Author: by Julius Evola
With unflinching gaze and uncompromising intensity Julius Evola analyzes the spiritual and cultural malaise at the heart of Western civilization and all that passes for progress in the modern world. As a gadfly, Evola spares no one and nothing in his survey of what we have lost and where we are headed.
At turns prophetic and provocative, Revolt against the Modern World outlines a profound metaphysics of history and demonstrates how and why we have lost contact with the transcendent dimension of being. The revolt advocated by Evola does not resemble the familiar protests of either liberals or conservatives.
His criticisms are not limited to exposing the mindless nature of consumerism, the march of progress, the rise of technocracy, or the dominance of unalloyed individualism, although these and other subjects come under his scrutiny. Rather, he attempts to trace in space and time the remote causes and processes that have exercised corrosive influence on what he considers to be the higher values, ideals, beliefs, and codes of conduct-the world of Tradition-that are at the foundation of Western civilization and described in the myths and sacred literature of the IndoEuropeans.

9. The Kybalion: Hermetic Philosophy
Author: by Three Initiates
Originally published in 1908 by unnamed authors calling themselves the Three Initiates and published by the Yogi Publication Society in Chicago, Illinois, The Kybalion is a widely read and influential study of the principles of Hermeticism. The philosophy of Hermeticism is based upon the teachings of the ancient Greek author and philosopher Hermes Trismegistus and posits that all life and truth flow from a single, universal creator.
This universal creator then gave knowledge of universal truths to man and through a study of these truths of the physical world, great feats of science can be achieved and humans can reach their full potential. These truths have meaning to both the material world in its grandest sense and to the inner consciousness of each individual person.
It is only by understanding the truth of the cosmos that a person can understand their own true self. The book is arranged around seven principles, which are the Principles of Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender.
10. Rosicrucian Magic: A Reader on Becoming Alike to the Angelic Mind
Author: by Frater Acher
Rosicrucian Magic is a book of magical reformation that lays a path of contact with spirits and beings through a lens of integrity. Drawing upon wisdom and knowledge from the ancient world through to eighteenth century influences and beyond, Frater Acher takes us on a journey of discovery on Becoming Alike to the Angelic Mind as originally articulated by Johannes Trithemius.
Frater Acher draws deeply from decades of experience as a practitioner and researcher of Western Magic to teach the reader how to unlock mystical texts and magical ritual. Rosicrucian Magic illuminates a path through the Mysteries and highlights how spirit communion evolves to become an everyday practice rooted in experience, ethics, knowledge and wisdom.
At the heart of the book, and for the first time in English language, Frater Acher presents a full translation and in-depth analysis of a forgotten high-degree ritual from the famous Order of the Golden and Rosy Cross. The occult artist Jos Gabriel Alegra Sabogal contributes beautiful new original illustrations, and has painstakingly restored the ritual’s secret seal, a central symbol of mystical mediation.

Julius Evola’s final major work, which examines the prototype of the human being who can give absolute meaning to his or her life in a world of dissolution Presents a powerful criticism of the idols, structures, theories, and illusions of our modern age Reveals how to transform destructive processes into inner liberationThe organizations and institutions that, in a traditional civilization and society, would have allowed an individual to realize himself completely, to defend the principal values he recognizes as his own, and to structure his life in a clear and unambiguous way, no longer exist in the contemporary world.
Everything that has come to predominate in the modern world is the direct antithesis of the world of Tradition, in which a society is ruled by principles that transcend the merely human and transitory. Ride the Tiger presents an implacable criticism of the idols, structures, theories, and illusions of our dissolute age examined in the light of the inner teachings of indestructible Tradition.
12. The Mystery of the Cathedrals
Author: by Fulcanelli
This edition of The Mystery of the Cathedrals offers an English translation of the original 1926 edition of Le Mystre des Cathdrales, retaining the original drawings from that edition. In 1957, long after Fulcanelli’s disappearance, a second edition of Le Mystre des Cathdrales was published in France, with important changes.
Most of the drawings were replaced by photographs. The 2nd edition also added a new preface and a new chapter, The Cyclic Cross of Hendaye, with more images. Eugne Canseliet, a disciple of Fulcanelli and in charge of his manuscripts, wrote the preface to the 2nd edition and to many other editions of Fulcanelli’s works, but he never explained why the original drawings were replaced by photographs.
Most of the photographs in the 2nd edition are similar to the original drawings, although they are not the same, and in three different images the differences are noticeable. The current English edition of Le Mystre des Cathdrales, translated by Mary Sworder, is based on the second edition of 1957, and shows photographs instead the original drawings.
13. Initiation Into Hermetics
Author: by Franz Bardon
June 1, 2014
Initiation into Hermetics if the first and most important of Franz Bardon’s works and is rightly regarded as the cornerstone of his entire opus. In contrast to other booths on the subject of magic, Bardon focuses his attention on the practical training necessary for all true magical attainment.
Using the four elements of fire, water, air and earth as a foundation, Bardon teaches the student how to master these universal forces in the three worlds of body, soul, and spirit. Bardon leads the student step by step through exercises providing detailed training in the entire arcanum of magic, from basic techniques in thought control to advanced teachings in astral travel, and much more.
No other writer has ever developed such a clear, concise, and practical program of magical development.
14. The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
Author: by Honorius of Thebes
As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts.
Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe. Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attempteduntil now.
Purporting to preserve the magic of Solomon in the face of intense persecution by religious authorities, this text includes one of the oldest and most detailed magic rituals. It contains a complete system of magic including how to attain the divine vision, communicate with holy angels, and control aerial, earthly, and infernal spirits for practical gain.
Largely ignored by historians until recently, this text is an important witness to the transmission of Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism to European Hermeticists.
