Martinus’ Spiritual Science: An Original Contribution to Western Esotericism?

A master’s thesis on Martinus (in English) is now available from Mikael Krall: This book, which is the publication of the author’s master’s dissertation, presents the life and spiritual science of the Danish author Martinus Thomsen (1890-1981). It compares his worldview with the worldviews of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891), Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), and Alice Bailey (1880-1949), as representatives of the most comprehensive Western esoteric philosophies, in the context of Western esoteric traditions in general. This is done in order to see if Martinus’ work is an original contribution to Western esotericism, and, if so, what his main contributions are.

In 1921, Martinus claimed to have gained what he described as cosmic consciousness, which, according to own account, permitted him the ability to apprehend all eternal laws and principles behind the physical world. Based on this consciousness, Martinus dedicated his life from 1921 onwards to presenting his spiritual science in symbols, texts, and lectures.

This is the first academic monograph on Martinus and his lifework in English, and presents the first comparison between these esoteric writers.
