" The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle
of true art and true science. "

Albert Einstein

" Occult arts and sciences (alchemy, astrology, numerology, the tarot, spirit forces, witchcraft. magic and others) were practiced openly in ancient society. Occult wisdom was a part of everyday existence until the Middle Ages when Christianity renounced it as anti-Christ. Erudite scientists and enlightened practitioners were forced into hiding and their teachings were perpetuated by local artists and visionaries.

The accoutrements of the spiritual sciences, the unusual mythological symbolism - a mystery unto itself - conceal the seminal principles. But it must be remembered that these circuitous images were not part of the original doctrine.
Hiding the secret teachings behind painted veils became the best way to prevent a repetition of the disaster that befell the Knights Templar, who were falsely accused of hideous crimes, tortured and murdered by those who opposed their beliefs.

In Secret Symbolism in Occult Art, Fred Gettings leads a tour of occult art and its symbolism from prehistoric times, through the turbulence of the Inquisition and up to the present, where it has once again become a part of everyday life. Many of our words, letters and sounds are occult in origin and contain hidden energies in their symbolism.

The Egyptian ankh, which protects its wearer from harm, the six-rayed star known as the seal of Solomon and the evil eye are well known and part of many occult teachings - perhaps part of the collective unconscious as well. Other more esoteric symbols such as the bell ringer and the salamander in the flame will be recognized by initiates. These symbols preserve the records of numerous enlightened persons, living in different times and places.

n Secret Symbolism in Occult Art, artists include Piero della Vecchia, Albrecht Dürer, William Blake and Arthur Rackham, clairvoyant C.W. Leadbeater, Rosicrucian Jacob Boehme and many other convey the secrets of the hidden realm. Fred Gettings, in turn studies their fascinating symbols, putting each work of art in its historic and spiritual context for a full appreciation of its meaning. "
