Light on theAncient Worlds is the first in a new World Wisdom series of Frithjof Schuon's classical works which have been extensively revised and updated.
With adamantine clarity of expression and a vision which sees through the eye of the heart, these essays examine the spiritual patrimony of humanity. This wisdom transcends changing schools of thought, and may best be characterized by what has come to be known in the West as the Perennial Philosophy.
Light on Ancient Worlds, first published in 1967, is a central example of Frithjof Schuon's thought. This new edition is fully revised and contains an Index and a valuable glossary which clarifies many key ideas expressed in Sanskrit, Latin, Greek, and Arabic, as well as foreign phrases. It also includes a selection of previously unpublished correspondence, which provides striking insights into Schuon's function as one of the great spiritual masters of our time.
