From the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica

Meyrink Golem

Just a quick post to say happy 146th birthday to Gustav Meyrink – resident of Bohemia, denizen of bohemia, writer of macabre fiction – and to share this recent seminar by Dr Marco Pasi from Amsterdam’s Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica. Right now I’m imagining how much fun it would be to browse their shelves full of esoterica, or to see their current exhibition on metaphysical art, Beauty as the Imprint of the Cosmos.

(Oh, and happy 205th to one of Meyrink’s spiritual ancestors as well: Edgar Allan Poe.)

    Uh, James, if Poe is 205 and Meyrink is only 146, whouldn’t HE be the spiritual heir? Am I missing something?
