  • Author Eliphas Levi

    Alphonse Louis Constant, better know by his pen name Eliphas Levi, was a master of the traditional Rosicrucian interpretation of the Kabbalah. He was born in France in 1810, and through the offices of the parish priest, was educated for the church at SaintSulpice. He was later expelled from seminary for teaching doctrines contrary to those of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1824 Levi began studying the occult sciences, and wrote about magic and the Kabbalah for the next three decades. His other books include Transcendental Magic, Mysteries of the Qabalah, and The Book of Splendours.

  • Foreword by W. N. Schors

Lévi links the Old and New Testaments by comparing the qabalistic imagery and concepts inherent in both “The Prophecy of Ezekiel” and “The Apocalypse of St. John.” Includes Lévi’s illuminating commentary on Ezekiel. He explains how the description of Solomon’s temple, the great sanctuary of the true God, represents the Qabalistic or traditional theology of the Hebrew seven the measurements are symbolic and refer to sacred numbers.
