The Hermetic Museum

This is the main index for Arthur Edward Waite’s Hermetic Museum. This is one of the largest collections of Alchemical tracts, first published in Latin in 1678. Waite translated it into English and issued it in two volumes in 1893. It appears in its entirety here on the Internet for the first time. Full bibliographic information can be found via either one of the volume index pages, (here, and here).

Friendly reminder that Dia de Los Muertos is pretty much a funeral, and the dead being represented in the holiday are actual dead people who had families and friends and hopes and dreams. So just as you wouldn’t throw on black clothes and join a group of mourners because they look so fashionable in black, you shouldn’t paint your face and put marigolds in your hair and make altars because it looks cool to you. Thank.
