Une collection d'articles écrits par Titus Burckardt. Les sujets sont divers et variés qui vont du symbolisme (de l'eau par exemple) à l'étude des arts islamiques. Très jolie compilation qui donne une vue d'ensemble sur l’œuvre du grand burckardt.

Burckhardt has most eloquently elaborated how intellect is the one common source that feeds the various symbols of mysticism. He has no quarrel with any ideology and no restraint with any either. Burckardt writes directly from the heart and shows us that when we remove reason from the symbol, the remaining intellect is one, and the only true source of the Truth.
