Volume 11 of the Mysteries of the Unknown series, ANCIENT WISDOM AND SECRET SECTS (Time-Life Books) is a fairly balanced look at such mystic groups as the Freemasons and Rosicrucians. What the editors give us is information gleaned from historical documents - rumors and questionable testimony included - leaving it to the reader to form an opinion. Illustrated essays abound.

ANCIENT WISDOM AND SECRET SECTS (Time-Life Books) is the eleventh Volume in Time-Life's Mysteries of the Unknown series. While the editors devote much of their time to more familiar sects (Freemasons and Rosicrucians), they're not without the company of Celts, sacrificial cults and magic, among others. Handy index.
