Everyone on Planet Earth, with even the most basic understanding of mathematics, owes a great debt to Pythagoras, the great Greek geometrician of the ancient world whose mathematical maxims have informed the constructive arm of man for over two millennia and whose spiritual and esoteric axioms have enlightened all great initiatory mystery schools since his incarnation. Through this book, The Golden Verses of Pythagoras, Pythagoras' surviving disciples introduced his science and philosophy to the world. These teachings helped to establish underground mystery schools throughout the Mediterranean world, with fragments of the work continuing to influence modern mystery schools and fraternal orders, such as Freemasonry, even today. The teachings contained in this book have sparked curiosity and divine insight in the minds of men for two thousand years. In that spirit, the Masonic Publishing Company presents the Golden Verses of Pythagoras, such that the lessons contained may once again take root in the geometer’s mind and guide his hand in all its works.
5 Stars
This 91-page book begins with a table of contents, followed by a preface, a foreword, and an introduction. Chapter 1, the actual “Golden Verses of Pythagoras”, are arranged into 71 lines, each line acting more like a stanza, rather than a sentence. Some stanzas are standalone ideas, while others rely upon those notions placed in front and behind, to create a complete thought or sentence. (It is this reader’s opinion that the editor of this book, Florence Firth, separated the verses, line-by-line, so as to allow the general readership time to pause, to ponder each of the ideas presented—for the ideas are dense.) The verses, more like Commandments, are a list of “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots”—perhaps the rules of conduct for all pupils entering the Pythagorean School of Thought. Chapters 2 through 8 contain six subsequent philosophers’ interpretations of Pythagoras’s work, each with their own, unique spin: Democrates, Demophilus, Stobaeus, Sextus, and Iamblichus. Chapter 9 contains 39 symbols (or fractions of virtues). Each symbol is followed with an explanation of its meaning.
