On Thursday January 16th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
present a discussion on the ancient Phoenicians and the Hermetic
Tradition. This follows last week's review of "Jesus the Phoenician" by
Karim el Koussa. The references for this evening's discussion will be the
recent "Phoenician Secrets" by Sandford Holst and "The Phoenicians, the
Purple Empire of the Ancient World" by Gerald Herm, Our focus will be on
Phoenician contributions to, and influence on, Western occultism and magick.
It has recently been established that the Phoenician culture is one of the
oldest in the world. It's roots go back nine thousand years. The Phoenicians
were building and sailing ocean-going ships long before the Pyramids were
built. The first pyramid was built by European architects brought from Malta
to Egypt by Phoenician contractors. The Phoenicians were very secretive
about their business and their religion. We will discuss their astrological
religion (the Labors of Hercules), their magical alphabet (the real origin
of the Qabalah) and their possible connection with Atlantis. So, if you want
to voyage with the Purple People on ancient seas, tune in and we'll hoist
the mainsheet.
