Is there a “Transcendent Unity” underlying the great religions of mankind? Does not every true religion start from an historic revelation which holds the key to its subsequent development? Is humanity divided into a number of “worlds”, each with its appropriate religious tradition? On questions such as these, this now classic work by one of the greatest metaphysicians of the 20th century, throws clear light on every page. Concerning this book T.S. Eliot wrote “I have met with no more impressive work, in the study of Oriental and Occidental Religion, than The transcendent Unity of Religions“. The writings of Frithjof Schuon, which began with this monumental work, possess the gift of reaching the very core of the subject, of going beyond forms and showing that God is the center; all paths lead to him.
