Secret Doctrine Index, The
Continuously in print since its first publication in 1888, The Secret Doctrine remains the most comprehensive source book of ancient and modern theosophy available today. Its 1,537 pages comprise a virtual encyclopedia of the “anciently universal wisdom-tradition.” Scarcely an issue of consequence in the broad range of human knowledge is left untouched.
This Index provides ready access to the vast quantity of material from many cultures set forth in the original two volumes (pagination of entries follows that of the 1888 edition). Due to the topics covered, it is as much an index of ideas as it is of subjects, works, persons, and proper names.
To aid the reader, major subject entries are cross-referenced; foreign terms are identified by language and, where possible, given in both their 1888 spelling(s) and as modernly transliterated, often with a one- or two-word definition; translations for foreign phrases are given in the Appendix – all helping to make this Index an invaluable reference tool for students of The Secret Doctrine
