"This beautifully executed encyclopedia stands out as a valuable addition to anyone's library and an exclusive gift for all people interested in the occult, history, or metaphysics or who just have curious minds." -New Age Retailer

"For those wanting to know what is currently of interest to the modern pagan and how the occult is viewed, this is the book of choice." -Library Journal

From “Aarab Zereq” to “Zos Kia Cultus,” this is the most up-to-date, comprehensive guide to the history, philosophies, and personalities of Western occultism.Written by an occult scholar and practitioner with the assistance of hundreds of experts in the field, this encyclopedia presents the latest in scholarly research and points out errors in previous writings-revealing truths much more interesting and dramatic than the fictional histories that obscured them.

The New Encyclopedia of the Occult is an invaluable reference guide to magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, Tarot, palmistry, and geomancy; magical orders such as the Golden Dawn and Rosicrucians; important occultists; and religions and spiritual traditions associated with occultism such as Wicca, Thelema, Theosophy, and the modern Pagan movement.

John Michael Greer (Southern Oregon) has been a student and practitioner of the Western mystery traditions since 1975, and is the author of books and articles on occult philosophy, Druidry, and the environment. Currently serving as Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), he is also a Freemason, an initiate of several esoteric orders, the director of an online college of geomancy, and a Druid Companion in the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids (OBOD), receiving OBOD's Mount Haemus Award for Druid scholarship in 2003. He lives in the mountains of southern Oregon with his wife Sara.
