324 pages5 hours


Within this book, Hargrave Jennings looks at the role "Phallicism" has played in various religions, including Rosicrucianism, Gnosticism, and Buddhism. A fascinating exploration of the significance of sexuality in religious doctrine, "Phallicism" is not to be missed by those with an interest in the topic, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Definitions and Distinctions leading up to the verities of Phallicism", "The History of the Phallic 'Symbol-Structures'; their Origin, Genealogy, and Variety through the succession of the historical-religions ages", "The Story of the Classes of the Phalli", "Celestial or Theosophical Doctrine of the Unsexual Transcendental Phallicism", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality, edition complete with the original text and artwork.
