This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Eliphas Levi on occultism

Occultism is a term that underwent a similar evolution, and here we can quote Eliphas Levi:

“If the word is new, it is because what it designates is also new. Prior to this there were ‘occult sciences’…But there was never an effort to unite all of them into a single body of doctrine, which would essentially imply the dominance of occultism.”[1]

This applies equally to the term esoterism and with the same significance.
