About Opus Magnum
We are still in our ‘formative’ stages. So far the site consists of:
- Free digital PDF library stocked with hundreds of scanned books on Alchemy, Hermeticism, Theosophy and other metaphysical themes.
- The Opus Magnum Master List – 100 of the most powerful and enlightening books ever written. These works were chosen because in one way or another, each one presents something new and original to world. Each one breaks a paradigm, each provides a vital clue to a grand mystery which can be seen with greater and greater clarity as you process through them.
- Comprehensive Author list, containing every book published by all the worlds greatest writers of every age! (In construction)
- The Opus Magnum Youtube Channel – A definitive collection of interviews, lectures, documentaries, fiction and more. THIS ‘Spiritual Netflix’ is FREE. (Also under Construction)
Our mission statement is identical to the original slogan of the Theosophical Society –
By using our links on the OM 100 list, you will be given the lowest price for a given book and at no expense to you, Opus Magnum will receive a small commission from each sale. This means that you are buying incredible books and at the same time, supporting Opus Magnum’s ability to reach further audiences and expand the services offered. Here is a list of the features that will be coming soon…
- A full bookstore with tens of thousands of titles hand selected for the ‘intellectual initiate’. By affiliating with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, eBay, Abe Books, and many more, we are guaranteeing that you will get the best price on the web and that we will have access to the widest possible selection to source from!
- Auction deals on rare, out of print and signed editions.
- Course Material – developed by Opus Magnum to give informative direction to anyone seeking to expand their knowledge.
- Treasure Chest – A physical library containing thousands of books that will be available for use or sale, online or in person. These will be used and new books.
- Book Club – For a small fee, you will be able to set up a cue that sends you a new book every month. You can build your cue from ANY of the titles in the Treasure Chest (thousands to choose from).
- Book of the Month – Each month we will collectively read and share opinions on a particularly relevant book.
- Discussion Forums – For every subject of interest, OM will host a unique public forum. The ‘Great Work’ involves everyone and we aim to allow maximum participation. We want to know your favorite books and ideas so that they can be incorporated into OM’s structural curriculum.
- Image Gallery containing restored esoteric imagery from every land and age. Largely, this feature will focus on the Alchemical symbolism of the medieval and Renaissance era.
- ART for Purchase – This gallery will include modern art originals and prints. Eventually we would like to host folk arts from around the world. In particular, ancient arts, indigenous arts and those that relate to spiritual or intellectual growth. Some examples may be textiles, sculptures/statuettes, replicas of artifacts, ritual objects, orgonite, jewelry, prayer flags, etc…
- The Opus Magnum Research Institute – We will be creating a unique space that will house our library, somewhere in upstate NY, and will provide a space for solitude, reflection, meditation and, of course, reading. Affordable rooms will be available by the night, week or month, so you can take a break from life and visit the beautiful Catskill Mountains with access to thousands of the world’s greatest books at a philosopher’s retreat and study center.
- University – Courses for credit, both online and offline – in the spirit of Manly Hall’s University of Philosophic Research.
- Publishing Company – To reproduce many of the greatest works of historical literature as well as new translations of scarcely known works and new authors who ‘fit the bill’.
These are the goals of Opus Magnum – to build the the Great Philosopher’s City – the CIVITAS SOLIS – Hermetic City of the Sun! The Great Work requires all hands on deck so your support and contributions are greatly appreciated.
