Re: Theos-World Re: The Theosophical Glossary by HPB or Mead!?

Yes. But it is said that it contains a number of simple errors, (even if we agree upon, as I do, that some of them were and are not errors as you said earlier in your theos-talk e-mail). But, simple errors, which I cannot agree upon was made by HPB. And when this is true, would you then tell me and others why your conclusion aught to be considered valid?

Are you saying that there are no errors at all?

Was the article by HPB named "Archaic Symbolism" the same as the posthumously published articles named "PAGAN SYMBOLISM INDESTRUCTIBLE-WHY?". - This one is also a possibility: "THE DENIALS AND THE MISTAKES OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY"

  Morten,

  I have looked for the original manuscript of HPB's
  Theosophical Glossary. As far as I know it is not
  extant except for the title page.

  After some extensive research I am confident that
  what was published in 1892 as the Theosophical Glossary
  is HPB's work. G.R.S. Mead may have slightly edited
  the existing text but I see no good reason for thinking
  that Mead or anyone else "played a trick" on HPB. This
  hypothesis is flawed and doesn't hold up when closely
  examined.

  In my notes published on Theos-talk which you made
  reference to, I went over many points in some detail.
  My notes can be found at:
