The Doctrine of the Subtle Body in Western Tradition

, , , , , , ,

An Outline of What the Philosophers Thought & Christians Taught on the Subject

The notion that the physical body is the exteriorization of a subtle element is an ancient belief. Believed to be material of a dynamic order, it provides an explanation for much psychic phenomena (in the broadest sense) as well as accounting for arts such as astrology, alchemy and the Hermetic Sciences. Mead – who was a classical scholar and HPB’s private secretary during her last years in London – provides an account which draws on classical Greek sources, early Christian and Gnostic discussions. Sections: Proem/ The Spirit-Body/ The Radiant Body/ The Resurrection-Body/ Epilogue.
