The Secret History of Western Esotericism Podcast

The Secret History of Western Esotericism Podcast (SHWEP) generously made available some of their (roughly) weekly podcast series which explores cutting-edge academic research in the study of Platonism, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, the Kabbalah, alchemy, occultism, magic, and related currents of thought.

This podcast documents the academic exploration of the neglected corners of western culture. The approach is roughly chronological, beginning with the earliest civilisations and moving forward in time until the present day, with the aim of leaving out nothing essential along the way. It will be a long and fascinating trip through the history of ideas, and one which is bound to challenge what you think you know about philosophy, science, religion, and western identities.

The podcasts are hosted by Earl Fontainelle, a researcher who specialises in the religious and philosophic thought of late antiquity, but with an interest in esoteric systems of thought.




Let her be :: Marina Abramović

Can we please see some respect and basic courtesy afforded to Marina Abramović.  If you are accusing her of Satanism then more than likely you are a Christian.

I need to open my heart,” Abramović told the New York Times in a new interview. “I really want to ask these people, ‘Can you stop with this? Can you stop harassing me? Can’t you see that this is just the art I’ve been doing for 50 years of my life?’

So how about putting the pitchforks and stones down and practising some of those virtues you profess to uphold.

Learn more about her and up your game, your actions tell us who you are.

We are the heirs and propagators of Paganism …

Happy is he who, for the sake of Paganism, bears the burden of persecution with firm hope.

Who else have civilised the world, and built cities if not the nobles and kings of Paganism.

Who else have set in order the harbours and rivers?

And who else have taught the hidden wisdom?

To whom else has the Deity revealed itself, given oracles, and told about the future, if not to the famous men among the pagans?

The pagans have made known all of this.

They have discovered the art of healing the soul.

They have also made known the art of healing the body.

They have filled the earth with settled forms of government, and with wisdom, which is the highest good.

Without Paganism the world would be empty and miserable.

Thabit ibn Qurrah (835-901) _ student of Harran’s university.
