Manly Palmer Hall

Sun of God (Great Solar Symbol of The Messiah) - Manly P. Hall

Manly Palmer Hall (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is best known for his 1928 work The Secret Teachings of All Ages. Here he discusses the relationship between soteriological myth and astronomy/astrology.

These days, most people roll their eyes at the mention of “astrology” since the first things that spring to mind are New Age crystal healers and the back of tabloid journals. Manly P Hall isn’t interested in horoscopes here, but in examining how the ancients studied the heavenly bodies and the the significance of their movements to their every day lives. Hall distinguishes his study here as “astro-theology,” and, being a more sophisticated take on the subject, I figured it would be appreciated by listeners of The Modern Hermeticist, especially this time of year.

Never before released video lecture from December 11, 1983, entitled: "Is There A Guardian Angel?" Mr. Hall was 82 years old at the time and lived another 7 years, lecturing and writing at the Philosophical Research Society, which he founded in 1934.
