The Great Initiates, Édouard Schuré
Édouard Schuré (1841 – 1929), a French writer, philosopher, and music expert, author of novels, plays, as well as historic, poetic, and philosophic works, created his major work “The Great Initiates” to share his thoughts on the possibility and need of reconciliation between science and religion as related to esotery. In his work, he considers the matters of conflicts between religion and science, aberrant concepts of truth and progress, unity of the theory of mysteries and unconscious progression of science toward theosophy. Schuré described the way that ancient philosophers and old masters have followed in pursuit of truth: Ramah, Krishna, Hermes, Moses, Orpheus, Pythagoras, Plato, and even Jesus Christ.
This work is dedicated to the author’s lady friend Margaret Albana Mignaty.
