The author of these articles, having been for many years acquainted with a society of German mystics who instructed him in their views, has herein attempted to reduce their teachings to a system and to add such explanations as may render them more comprehensible to the seeker for truth and immortality. It may be added that the said mystics are quite illiterate people, being not even able to read, and therefore cannot be suspected of having gathered their opinions from books. They are not “mediums,” such as speak by inspiration of things which they do not understand in their normal condition, but have been taught by their own spiritual Self. What they know is the result of continued efforts to rise to the plane of that higher Self. Vol. III.-17

It was in 1908 when as a boy of only sixteen years I made the acquaintance of Dr. Franz Hartmann, German’s then foremost mystic. This meeting occurred in Danzig, where was located at that time one of the most prospering lodges of the Theosophical Society. Though my retentive faculty is by no means above the average, everything concerning the unique personality of that great man is still fresh in my memory. The fact that he produced such an indelible impression upon me was, I think, due to a startling and embarrassing inconsistency, at least to me, between his outward appearance and his true nature.

The Franz Hartmann Collection is committed to publishing the complete works of the Christian mystic, Freemason, Theosophist and Martinist and Rosicrucian Franz Hartmann. A close associate of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Col. Henty Olcott, Hartmann has left behind many writings that hold great significance for the academic study of religion, esotericism and for those seeking knowledge. The collection aims to preserve, disseminate, and make accessible all available works of this remarkable individual to a wide audience.

At present, the bibliography on Hartmann’s works is under construction, recognising the need for regular updates and additions. In order to ensure its accuracy and inclusiveness, we humbly request any suggestions or contributions from scholars, researchers, and enthusiasts in the field. Your input would tremendously enhance the comprehensiveness and usefulness of this bibliography.
