4.0 out of 5 stars remarkable work 7 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Schwaller De Lubicz was a truly gifted intuitive who was able to interpret Egyptian architecture and sculpture in the most amazing way. So why only four stars? As this review is of the English translation by Vanden Broeck who also translated other works of his, I have to say that it is something of a struggle to read as one finds oneself continually guessing what the original French might have been and re-translating into clearer, more sensible English. Over half a century has passed since this was first published and much of what Lubicz labours to say is now accepted wisdom and some of his ideas do seem a bit quaint. However, there is no doubt that his work was massively influential and that no serious student of Egyptian culture should be without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly in depth study 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not for the light hearted, although a peice of scientific writing and knowledge beyond everyday literature. Difficult to read, not much so from the authors writing, but so many pieces of information that need to be evaluated and quantified. A true treasure for the serious scholar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alchemical Opus of RA Schwaller de Lubicz 25 May 2009
By Dorian Taddei - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many academics will point to "Temple In Man" as R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz's crowning achievement. I humbly, and totally, disagree. As academically pleasing (detailed and bordering on pedantic) "Temple In Man" is, "Sacred Science" is clearly his alchemical opus. He sweeps aside our modern (then maturing and fully accepted) ideas about evolution using the Egyptian tradition, then proceeds to untangle the Egyptian mythology as it embeds the true principles of human spiritual evolution. Unknown - apparently even to R. A. - the Egyptian records and mythos had encoded information considered so sacred (and therefore, secret) in their day, that the actual truth was never uttered. Even RA did not know what he'd stumbled on to. I'll leave this re-discovery up to the reader, but suffice it to say that this work is a masterpiece of transliteration, and should be required reading for anyone seriously interested in deciphering the hidden occult alchemical-astrological-spiritual lexicon of the ancient religions of the past. This knowledge was apparently only fully recorded in the Egyptian mythos and hieroglyphs, and only a man as broadly trained in modern critical scientific analysis, as well as intuitive alchemical reductionism, and as fully in possession of the "intelligence of the heart" as R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz was, could have re-discovered that which so very many utterly missed. An absolute must read, Sacred Science is a literary equivalent of prima materia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scwaller is a Sage 19 May 2010
By Walter Cruttenden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having spent over 30 years in Egypt studying the ancient monuments and symbols, and living the culture, this book is better researched than any similar publication. Schwaller provides an exceptionally insightful look into the minds and hearts of the ancient Egyptians. He reveals a way of life that is so integrated with the cosmos and centered on the inner journey of enlightenment few Egyptologists will understand it unless they too practice the esoteric science of personal transformation.

It is only in the present, relatively materialistic age, that we separate science and the sacred as foreign to one another - but the ancient Egyptians and Schwaller knew a deeper harmony. For anyone that is seeking to understand the mindset of long lost higher cultures Sacred Science is a key resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schwaller De Lubicz has deciphered Egyptian Philosophy 25 Jun 2001
By Patrick Krebs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a short jog into Rene's greater work Le Temple d'Homme. Sacred Science is a guide to the metaphysical world harnessed by the pharaoh. One will quickly agree with the well recorded research and analysis expertly layed out in this work. This book casts shadows on other books released about Egyptain Theocracy. This book traces the origin of Heliocentricity much farther back then Capernicus and sites the Pythagorian understanding behind the Cathlic "Heretics" of the middle ages. And consequently traces Pythagoros back to his roots, his training by the priests of the temples in Egypt for 15 years! This Book is filled with amazing revelations is dry and techincal, possibly aimed at the acedemic community, but If you enjoy Ancient History, Cause and Effect, Ancient Egypt or Greece, mythology or are a skeptic you will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars another five star review for this great author 16 Nov 2011
By Paul Smyres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first encountered R.A Schwaller's work long ago with a small but memorable book, "The Temple in Man" Sacred architecture and the Perfect Man. amazing. I never forgot that book, and it led to other research about Egypt and metaphysics. Not only was Mr. de Lubicz brilliant, he was incredibly accurate in observations and measurements. He was very broadly educated, including science, history, mythology, metaphysics, medicine, and other subjects. Moreover, he had fantastic access to the subject of his investigations, Giza, Egypt, etc., the type of access modern scholars can only dream about, given the situation now in Egypt, where very few are allowed, in very restricted ways, to measure and physically touch the sacred sites the way he was able do. So, we all owe a great debt to him. And fortunately for us, there are many reprints of his great works.

Egyptian cosmology and thought appear incredibly bizarre to a typical modern mind, but that's because we fail to grasp its meaning. Their version of what we call "religion", was the supreme science, a way to produce heaven on earth, "as above, so below", because man's inner divinity can be manifested through a process of initiations, unfolding a student's awareness to include the full inner awareness of spirit while in a body, combined with scientific knowledge of how to apply that understanding to work a kind of magic in physical space. Clearly, the few who pursued this knowledge diligently and completely became incredible architects, artists, mathematicians, musicians, and perhaps even magicians in the best sense of the word. Simply put, they knew something very, very important that we are missing in our modern "civilization". It pays us to listen, and because of books like this, we are able to know so much now.

This "religion" was not about faith, dreaming. It was incredibly precise, a whole system of education about energy, matter, space, proportion, and harmony, demonstrated in full manifestation by monuments and art that have lasted for millenia. Egypt left a legacy so important, that most of the great geniuses through all time since have studied some part of "hermetics" at one time or another. Even today, we can all benefit immensely from studying what the masters of Egypt have to say. Now, to do that, we need people like Mr. Lubicz to help us. Few of us can visit the sites, or study the heiroglyphs, read all the myths, etc. In this book, the author uses his brilliance to clearly explain what egypt was all about, the core of their philosophy and knowledge. There are plenty of illustrations and footnotes, too, so it's not just a long spiel of speculation. You must read it, and think. carefully. over time, some revelations will occur to you that may change your life, the way you see things.

In addition to this book, please also look into the complementary works of E.A. Budge, Petrie, Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, and more modern researchers such as Robert Bauval, Graham Hancock, John Anthony West, Joseph Farrell, and many others.

This book is a keeper, one I want in tangible form ( as opposed to Kindle ), since it's got lots of illustrations, and you may want to make notes in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Abstract 5 Oct 2013
By Jeff Marzano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an intense book that delves into many abstract, esoteric, and metaphysical subjects.

Schwaller felt our world took a wrong turning around the time of the ancient Greeks when people tried to apply logic to concepts which are not logical such as how God created the universe and the mystery of life itself. This has lead to what he calls the cult of intellectualism. Schwaller felt that this sort of mindset will ultimately lead to a philosophical dead end.

Scwhaller's concerns have proven to be very prophetic as atheism has become very prominent in the scientific community today. As Schwaller so accurately predicted the laws of mathematics and physics as we understand them today break down when scientists attempt to apply them to the beginning of the universe.

Schwaller was however wrong about his understanding of mythology. He felt that the mythological gods and goddesses were misunderstood by the Greeks, the Romans, and other cultures who viewed the immortals as living entities.

Rather he felt the Greeks tried to apply human characteristics to what Schwaller calls the Neters which are according to him more like forces of nature.

Ironically by saying this Schwaller sort of committed the same deadly sin that he found so repulsive in the atheistic scientists. He turned the gods and goddesses into impersonal, metaphysical principles which were based on his understanding of the Egyptian religion.

This mistake by Schwaller is subtle but yet rather serious for a book which delves into the nature of reality. And this misunderstanding seems to have permeated many of Schwaller's other ideas.

He talks about alchemy but his conclusion is that alchemy's transmutation is really something which I can't even comprehend the way he explains it.

His main point is the kings of ancient Egypt weren't real people at all but rather symbols for various natural phenomenon and spiritual truths.

Like many authors Schwaller allowed his knowledge and expertise in one area to cause him to become wrongly selective about what sources he believed.

He quotes from a Greek philosopher named Xenophanes who severely criticized the writings of Hesiod and Homer.

But yet Schwaller believed what Herodotus heard from the Egyptians. Herodotus was told that the Great Pyramid was built by thousands of slaves using manual labor, something which would have been totally impossible. By the time of Herodotus the Great Pyramid was already 10,000 years old and nobody alive at that time knew how the Hell it even got there.

Homer's Iliad story is very mysterious because Zeus and the other immortals have a direct role in the Trojan War. And in fact Homer was correct. The gods and goddesses of mythology are very real.

Scwhaller was a serious researcher and he was very knowledgeable about many aspects of Egypt's mysterious legacy. However I don't know if I would recommend this book for someone who is just starting out reading about these types of subjects.
