The French Mystic and the Story of Modern Martinism
by Arthur Edward Waite
Louis Claude de Saint-Martin (1743 – 1803) was a French mystic, author and esoteric leader. Often referred to as the “unknown philosopher,” the followers of Saint-Martin were so taken by his teachings that they created what is today known as Martinism. This is Arthur Edward Waite’s classic account of this mysterious man. Excellent foundational study. Photographic reproduction of the 1922 edition.
