In Mysteries of the Christos the figure of Christ is used as a touchstone for addressing the subjects of cosmology, mystical experience and spiritual transformation. Initially, the book offers a model of Jesus as an initiatory adept whose disciples John and Mary received a special mystical teaching. Through an examination of Hindu, Platonic, Gnostic, Buddhist, and Kabbalistic texts, it is shown how Jesus may be placed in a worldwide tradition of initiation and adeptship. The final half of the book concerns the Western mystical/philosophical teaching known as Hermeticism, with examples from Hermetically trained artists, Dante, Raphael, Shakespeare, Blake, etc. Throughout, the book addresses the issues of the Logos and the Holy Grail. The idea of the Logos as Seed and template of universal order is the ultimate concern of this book. All other considerations, be they Jesus teachings, the art of Western civilization, Jungian archetypes, the ancient Mysteries, theories of modern physics, are introduced in order to clarify the universal meaning of the Logos.
