By Johann Valentin Andreae.
In the 21st century The Chymical Wedding is still acknowledged as a great literary gem, an exceptional story written within the Western esoteric tradition. The story follows the narrator, Christian Rosenkreutz, on his path of striving towards spiritual knowledge and an inner transformation. The whole experience of what he first witnesses, then participates in and finally takes responsibility for, profoundly challenges him.
This is an important book during this critical time of change which faces humanity today. We are currently witnessing the dazzling development of scientific and technological thought, yet this thinking is ill-equipped to solve the deeper mysteries of the human being and the social life. The Chymical Wedding invites us to transform this power of scientific thinking into new more positive ways of looking at the world, without losing its clarity and certainty.
The illuminating illustrations by David Newbatt, together with the text which has been adapted into modern English, bring a fresh approach to this alchemical tale, to help in awakening an understanding for this Rosicrucian initiation path. Underneath the veil of the fascinating imagery within this book is a guide for developing a more meaningful inner life in the 21st century.
