A Revelation of the Temple Wisdom of Ancient Egypt





Only in recent years have people become aware of the importance of Schwaller de Lubicz, described as the last Pythagorean, an alchemist who accomplished the Great Work, both in transmutation of physical lead to gold, and correspondingly in consciousness. In his early days he wrote an analysis of the Secret Language of the Gothic Cathedrals, which he would not publish because of the value of the Sacred Knowledge, but which he did lend to his compatriot, the Master Alchemist, Fulcanelli, who proceeded, after refusing to return the manuscript for a period of years, to publish "his" masterpiece Les Mystere des Cathedrales. Schwaller was able to read and write the "Language of the Gods", the Universal Symbolic Language of the Divine Mysteries, contained in all great Sacred texts, alchemical manuscripts and Sacred architecture.

Upon his first journey to Egypt, Schwaller discovered an expression of this Universal Language with its principles of Sacred Science, so refined, that he moved to Egypt and spent the next 15 years studying in minute detail Egyptís most exquisite and divine temple, the Temple of Luxor. Schwaller measured the entire building and proved that the plan was rigorously based upon human proportions and designed to symbolically represent man. The human being embodied in the geometry of the Templeís architecture is symbolic of the Perfect Man. In Egypt, the Perfect Man represented the final stage of manís evolution, his ultimate Divinization. The Temple of Man awakens us to the resurrection of the spiritual essence of man which has involved itself in matter. Every human birth participates in this alchemy, either in a conscious manner, through the intentional perfecting and manifesting of oneís higher nature, or through the tumult and suffering of experience that lead eventually to spiritual self-awareness Ė the Temple of Man.

There is no question that this is the greatest cosmological work ever written, as well as one of the greatest spiritual texts. Schwaller was not a merely an intellectual, but a Master Alchemist who successfully applied the principles of transmutation to both matter and consciousness, giving his work the added significance of being capable of bridging that gargantuan gap between Cosmological Theory and Spiritual Application. This is the first time the Initiated Mysteries and Sacred Hermetic Science of the Egyptian Priesthood have been laid out and explained, and in exhaustive detail. The contents of this book could not be found in 1,000 of the best works ever published on any of the related subjects. The information revealed in this work has the power to create a much needed renaissance in science, art and spirituality, while redefining our interpretation of the universe, history, culture, and ourselves.

Translated by Robert Lawlor, this 1100 page work gives, for the first time, a complete revelation of the Temple Wisdom, Cosmology and Mysticism of Ancient Egypt. With over 400 diagrams and plates, this masterpiece was intended by Schwaller to prove, once and for all, to the scientific and educated world, the advanced level of scientific and metaphysical wisdom possessed by this greatest of ancient civilizations. In the process he proves that Egypt, not Greece, is the cradle of Western culture and civilization, and demonstrates that a radical reevaluation of our origins is immanent.

No thinking individual should forgo this opportunity to participate in what shall surely inspire a Renaissance of Scientific, Spiritual, Historical and Political Wisdom. This is truly a book for the Information Revolution! The Temple of Man reveals clearly and holistically what before took the attempted deciphering of hundreds of books to hopefully understand. We have no hesitation in recommending this as one of the best books we have ever seen and the most important works in our 10,000 volume library!

For everyone interested in Mysticism, Cosmology, Metaphysics, Markets, Science, Gann, and Baumring, this is the best explanation of most of it that you will ever find. Topics include: Law of Vibration, Harmonics, Sacred Geometry, Astronomy, Cycles, Proportion, Number Series, Sacred Architecture, Masonic Grid Patterns, The Square of Nine & The Hindu Temple, Gannís Concepts of Space Time & Volume, Everything Pythagorean, Alchemy, Medicine, Mysticism, Consciousness, Evolution, Mythology, Cosmogony, The Key to Symbolism, and The Revelation of The Mysteries, to name a few.

About the Book 
The monumental Temple of Man represents the most important breakthrough in our understanding of Ancient Egypt since the discovery of the Rosetta stone. This exhaustive and authoritative study reveals the depths of the mathematical, medical, and metaphysical sophistication of Ancient Egypt. Schwaller de Lubicz's stone-by-stone survey of the temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor allows us to step into the mentality of Ancient Egypt and experience the Egyptian way of thinking within the context of their own worldview. 

His study finds the temple to be an eloquent expression and summary--an architectural encyclopedia--of what the Egyptians knew of humanity and the universe. Through a reading of the temple's measures and proportions, its axes and orientations, and the symbolism and placement of its bas-reliefs, along with the accompanying studies of related medical and mathematical papyri, Schwaller de Lubicz demonstrates how advanced the civilization of Ancient Egypt was, a civilization that possessed exalted knowledge and achievements both materially and spiritually. In so doing, Schwaller de Lubicz effectively demonstrates that Ancient Egypt, not Greece, is at the base of Western science, civilization, and culture. 

To understand the temple of Luxor, twelve years of field work were undertaken with the utmost exactitude by Schwaller de Lubicz in collaboration with French archaeologist Clement Robichon and the respected Egyptologist Alexandre Varille. From this work were produced over 1000 pages of text and proofs of the sacred geometry of the temple and 400 illustrations and photographs that make up The Temple of Man

The Temple of Man is a monument to inspired insight, conscientious scholarship, and exacting archaeological groundwork that represents a major contribution to humanity's perennial search for self-knowledge and the prehistoric origins of its culture and science. 

About the Author 
R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1887--1961) was one of the most important philosophers, mathematicians, and Egyptologists of this century. His elucidation of the temple at Luxor and his presentation of the Egyptian understanding of a special quality of innate consciousness form a bridge that links the sacred science of the Ancients to its rediscovery in our own time.

"In The Temple of Man, renowned Egyptologist R.A. Schwaller De Lubicz offers an exhaustive study of the temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu at Luxor.  In over 1000 pages of text, illustrations and photographs, De Lubicz demonstrates the powerful spiritual and philosophical heritage of ancient Egyptian civilization."
Publishers Weekly

"Schwaller's grand synthesis reveals, once and for all, the full extent and significance of the knowledge of Ancient Egypt." 

"Le Temple de l'homme by Schwaller de Lubicz is an absolute must for all who are interested in the search for the truth about Ancient Egypt and its pivotal place in the unfolding of the cosmic drama and the human quest for immortality and spiritual perfection. For years we have all waited for an English translation. Here it is at last!" 
Robert G. Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids and Message of the Sphinx 

"Schwaller's text demands that it not be just read, but that it be 'thought along with.' His scientific writings contain poetic and spiritual insights that touch the soul . . . because true science, as he conceives it, is capable of generating those insights--indeed, it demands that they be generated." 
Gnosis Magazine 

"In my view, The Temple of Man is the most important work of scholarship of this century. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz finally proves the existence of the legendary 'sacred science' of the Ancients and systematically demonstrates its modus operandi. It was this great science--based upon an intimate and exact knowledge of cosmic principles--that fused art, religion, science, and philosophy into one coherent whole and sustained Ancient Egypt for three thousand years." 
John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky 

"Schwaller de Lubicz's great work, grounded in a remarkable insight into the science and philosophy of the ancient world, opens the way to a complete reappraisal of Egyptian civilization, revolutionizing our view of history." 
John Michell, author of The New View Over Atlantis 

This astonishing and monumental book helps us understand not only the greatness of Egypt, but the depths of the human soul as well. The work of Schwaller de Lubicz stands in our time as an unsurpassed blending of objective scholarship and profound spiritual and philosophical vision. 
Jacob Needleman, author of Time and the Soul 

In the first Renaissance, the Florentines went back to the knowledge of the ancient Greeks. In this, our planetary Renaissance, we return to the esoteric knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians. The research and intuitions of Schwaller de Lubicz should be placed alongside Evans-Wentz's recovery of the esoteric knowledge of Tibet. 
William Irwin Thompson, author of At the Edge of History 

Schwaller de Lubicz is one of the major thinkers of the twentieth century--his greatness, alas, still not fully recognized, although readers who know Sacred Science and Symbol and the Symbolic treasure them as masterpieces. But his greatest and most massive achievement is The Temple of Man, surely one of the seminal works of the last half century. The news that it is to be finally published in English will delight all admirers of this highly original philosopher. 
Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider and The Philosopher's Stone 

"The Temple of Man will live, like statues of Ramesses, long after we and those who follow us have joined the pharaohs. This is an eternal work, just as Egypt is eternal. To enter the minds of the Ancient Egyptians through this door will lead any reader into an enchanted realm where form and structure have life, where stone breathes and  perspires, and where the palpitating heart of traditional wisdom still throbs amongst the sands." 
Robert Temple, translator of The Complete Fables of Aesop and 
author of The Sirius Mystery 

"The Temple of Man is a monumental product of intellect, scholarship, and exploration into the 'pharaonic mentality' of Ancient Egypt. There is no work more ambitious in seeking to render accessible the consciousness of a time and place remote from and extremely alien to our own. The sufficiently careful and aware reader can actually take on enough of the mindset being described as to arrive at states of consciousness unlike any experienced by contemporary people. It then becomes possible to glimpse that extraordinary 'mentality' which cast in Egypt a spell of luminous fascination still potent after thousands of years." 
Robert Masters, author of The Way to Awaken and The Goddess Sekhmet
