Excerpt from Lucifer, Vol. 18: A Theosophical Magazine, Designed to "Bring to Light the Hidden Things of Darkness"; March, 1896-August, 1896 With the general programme, however, of Mrs. Kingsford we are in entire sympathy her effort was to unify and interpret all the religions of the world known to us, especially directing her attention to the Grecian, Egyptian, Jewish and Christian. The essentially oriental religions entered but slightly into the scheme of the Veda and Pitaka and Zend Avesta little is said. The leading idea of Mrs. Kingsford was that the Christian religion must trace its true origin to the Mysteries - pre'e'minently the Mysteries of Bacchus; and though we are strongly inclined to believe the main postulate, we can by no means endorse the details. This much is certain, that no subject is of greater interest for the western world than the one pro posed by the authors of Tim Perfect Way. But for the satisfactory accomplishment of the task two things are absolutely necessary; firstly, the faculty to read the old records of the world-memory at will, the result of stern discipline and the exercise of that supreme common sense which so few mortals ever possess; and secondly, a faculty of scholarly research, whereby the results arrived at may be fitly recommended to the minds of the students of religion and history. It is the rarest thing on earth to come across the mystic who will submit to such training, or check his impressions by the stern discipline of research; and though no one would deny that Mrs. Kingsford had the ability, we look in vain for the results of that accurate research in her works.
