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.

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.
