Esoteric Christianity; or, The lesser mysteries by Annie Besant( )

87 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in English and held by 2,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early Christianity held secrets equal to those of other great religions, says Annie Besant. Its first followers guarded them as priceless treasures. After an increasingly rigid hierarchy began to bury these truths in the early centuries A.D., they were known only to a few initiates, who communicated them privately, often in obscure language. In Esoteric Christianity, Besant's aim is to restore the secret truths underlying Christian doctrine. As public interest grows in the Gnostic Gospels and the mystical side of Christianity, Besant's remarkable book, first published in 1901, is attracting new attention

The basis of morality by Annie Besant( )

11 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Must religion and morals go together? Can one be taught without the other? It is a practical question for educationists, but apart from education, the question of the bedrock on which morals rest, the foundation on which a moral edifice can be built that will stand secure against the storms of life - that is a question of perennial interest, and it must be answered by each of us, if we would have a test of Right and Wrong, would know why Right is Right, why Wrong is Wrong. Mysticism cannot be spoken of as a basis of morality in the sense in which Revelation, Intuition, Utility and Evolution

Fruits of philosophy. A treatise on the population question by Charles Knowlton( )

44 editions published between 1870 and 2014 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though you might not suspect it from its misleadingly dry title, Fruits of Philosophy caused quite a stir in its day. Rather than being an august treatise on the works of Aristotle and Socrates, this slim volume produced by a renegade Massachusetts physician in the early 1830s compiled the most up-to-date information then known about sex, conception, and birth control. The author was later convicted of indecency and sentenced to a term of hard labor

Because of her early work as a secular activist who labored tirelessly in support of activities like increasing women's access to birth control information, it surprised many of Annie Besant's friends and colleagues when she developed a strong interest in the esoteric spiritual practice known as Theosophy. But rather than abandoning her previous beliefs and values, Besant incorporated them into her newly spiritualized worldview. Similarly, in this series of lectures presented to an international Theosophy conference, Besant integrates the Western tradition of science with the spiritual beliefs of the faith

Even today, atheism is a controversial subject, so it''s not surprising that the 1895 publication of British thinker and activist Annie Besant''s My Path to Atheism caused quite a stir.
