The name Schwaller de Lubicz is not one which many people have heard and yet if you scratch below the surface of the works of Hancock, Bauvel and other modern writings on Egypt, Esotericism and ancient civilization, you will find him standing there waiting.

The source for much of the modern re-appraisal of Ancient Egypt comes from the work of John West, who clearly tells us that Schwaller de Lubicz was his inspiration.

Yet, who exactly was Schwaller de Lubicz and why haven’t we heard of him ? The first reason why we have not heard of de Lubicz is that much of his work is still only available in the native tongue of French.

It seems difficult for us conditioned to believe in the supremacy of English as a world language, to realize that there is a vast library of untranslated material which is great import to modern esotericism. Most of the works of Rene Guenon, Julius Evola and Schwaller de Lubicz are still only available in their native tongue.

The second reason why we probably haven’t heard of Schwaller de Lubicz is that he is incredibly difficult to read. Since he believed is the sacredness of language and of number, he used them only with reservation and respect and in a form that demanded slow, meditative consideration. His works cannot be breezed through, they demand digestion. Not something we are used to, being the era of the paperback and streamlined news broadcast with their “two minute” concentration spans.  As his works have been slowly translated (Inner Traditions have released many of his titles including the first release of The Temple of Man, his two volume opus in 1998), it is important to consider his unique insight into the nature of Egyptian civilization.
