"Helena Petrovna surely among the most original and perceptive minds of her time....She is among the modern world's trailblazing psychologists of the visionary mind."  

Theodore Roszak, 
"Unfinished Animal: Aquarian Frontier & the Evolution of Consciousness."

"Blavatsky's esoteric synthesis has served as a basic source for later esotericists, literati, scientists, and entire movements, including the New Age.  Unlike most of her contemporaries, she is as visible today as any modern trendsetting guru, and she will most likely remain the most memorable and innovative esotericist of the 19th century."  

James A. Santucci 
in "Dictionary of Gnosis & Western Esotericism."

"....Madame Blavatsky...stands out as the fountainhead of modern occult thought, and was either the originator and/or popularizer of many of the ideas and terms which have a century later been assembled within the New Age Movement. The Theosophical Society, which she cofounded, has been the major advocate of occult philosophy in the West and the single most important avenue of Eastern teaching to the West."  

J. Gordon Melton, Jerome Clark and Aidan A. Kelly, editors, 
"New Age Almanac."
