A complete history of the modern world from the occult point of view.

Ovason takes a well-known image or turning point in each successive epoch of modern history and shows that our understanding of what lies behind it is completely wrong. Moreover he reverses the general assumption that these epochs, e. g. Renaissance, Age of Reason, Romantics, the Industrial Revolution, were essentially secularising, materialising movements, by revealing the spiritual impulses behind them. Topics include the astrology in medieval churches, what Joan of Arc did for England, the shadowy 'superior' who instrcued both John Dee and Francis Bacon, the evil infiltration of Masonic lodges that gave rise to the French Revolution and why Nazis showed the swastika spinning backwards.
