I have just spent the last two or three weeks reading and studying the recently released The Black Sun Unveiled by James Pontolillo[ 2013]. This is a huge tome consisting of 792 pages and 65 chapters with five appendices! Pontolillo does a splendid job of unearthing the origins of the Schwarze Sonne mythos and in doing so he delves into the fields of mediaeval alchemy, nineteenth and twentieth century literature, including science fiction before he gets to the most interesting [for me] parts of the book. The second part of the book consists of rare ariosophical and armanist works translated into English, many for the first time it would seem along with an exploration of how the symbolism of the Black Sun has penetrated the folkish music scene and contemporary fiction.

Examples of important works include the complete Das Mysterium der Zentralsonne by Peryt Shou[1912], an extremely difficult work to understand [in German or English!] and translated excerpts of works by H.P. Blavatsky, Karl Maria Wiligut, Emil Ruediger, Erich Halik, Wilhelm Landig, Rudolf J. Mund, Savitri Devi, Miguel Serrano, Robert Charroux, Jean-Michel Angebert, James Madole, the Tempelhofgesellschaft, Order of the Nine Angles, Norbert Juergen Ratthofer, Ralph Ettl, Gerhard Hess, Jan van Helsing and many others.

The book is littered with nicely produced black and white photographs and illustrations. Throughout the various translated works Pontolillo has added copious footnotes. These tend to be rather repetitive if you read the book from cover to cover as I have done but may be very useful if you read just selected chapters of greater interest to you or if you delve into the book piecemeal in which case the repetition is very useful.

...it will take a few months to go through this monumental work cover-to-cover but being organised as largely self contained & readable chapters lends itself well to dipping in & out....quite amazing almost mono-maniacal research in locating every type of source, often pretty much unobtainable & certainly highly obscure covering all bases of history, literature, pseudo-history and fringe culture on this strange archetypal symbol and its resonance.....and it is an oddly resonant symbol from the profound - hearing the recently departed composer John Tavener shortly before his death on his spiritual path towards death & the via negativa ( the divine dark ) , to the pop-cultural...such as the film Hell Boy where occult nazis try to summon demonic gods through a black-hole style transdimensional portal...

Others reviewers have given a detailed synopsis on the content this book so I shall not repeat it here.

However, I will say that I found this book to be a monumental achievement. It draws upon occult resources that I had never come across before and reveals some fascinating and influential individuals from 19th and 20 century German occult circles in particular.

If you are interested in the Black Sun as a subject then this is a book that will enthrall and entertain you in equal measure.

A superb publication at a very reasonable price.

Racist fantasy or Aryan destiny? 16 Nov. 2013
By Vance Asheville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A long-awaited English translation and review of nearly all available texts bearing on the symbolism of the Black Sun as associated with European/Aryan mysticism. Special biographical and bibliographical attention is given to the primary personalities behind the modern concept. Part pseudo-astronomy, part science-fiction, part myth-making. Not the stuff of many modern "Nazi occult" novels, but an academic treatment and examination of original source materials dating from ancient times through Theosophy and eventually taking shape in the 20th century development of an alternative National Socialist (i.e. white racial) religion. The Black Sun may be viewed as the Ur-gesetz, the universal primal godhead, and the often heady belief in a cosmic astrological influence shaping world destiny. Chapters range from translations of the texts from such figures as Peryt Shou and Miguel Serrano to identification and acknowledgement of the early/popular appearance of Black Sun symbolism in art and literature from around the globe. Perhaps nothing short of an original God-concept embraced with fanaticism by a rebellious element of the world's white population challenging the mainstream current of globalism and modernity. Practically every source relegated to a footnote in other popular examinations of the subject is presented here in chronological context and tediously examined for its part in carrying the myth to its current status as one of the most sinister belief-systems threatening the global establishment.

An Exhaistive Study 15 May 2014
By Robert N. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Truly an exhaustive study of the subject. I cannot envision any other book on the subject supplanting this one. Even handed and honest in all it's aspects. A real work of scholarship. Full of leads to other books and sources. Top notch work.

A good book but not really original: it has predecessors 12 Aug. 2014
By Macno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book was lent to me for reading since a friend knew I read books on that matter. I must confess, though interesting, this book was fueled by the remarkable and recent book "Nazi Secrets; A Breach in the Fabrix of History", from which most ideas were "borrowed", especially as to the origin of this myth: its beginning in the 90s, identification between the sun wheel inlay at Wewelsburg castle with the older Black Sun mythos etc.
