Contents: Keter --
When the light of the infinite --
Wee haue divers curious Clocks --
Hokhmah --
In hanc utilitatem clementes angeli --
He who attempts to penetrate into the Rose Garden --
And begin by combining this name --
Juda Leon se dio a permutaciones --
Binah --
Do not expect too much of the end of the world --
Having come from the light and from the gods --
In his right hand he held a golden trumpet --
And finally nothing is cabalistically inferred --
His sterility was infinite --
Sub umbra alarum tuarum --
Li frere, li mestre du Temple --
He, if asked, would also confess to killing Our Lord --
I will go and fetch you help from the Comte D'Anjou --
He had been in the order only nine months --
And thus did the knights of the Temple vanish --
A mass terrifyingly riddled with fissures and caverns --
The order has never ceased to exist, not for a moment --
Invisible center, the sovereign who must reawaken --
The Graal ... is a weight so heavy --
The knights wanted to face no further questions --
Hesed --
The analogy of opposites --
Sauvez la faible Aischa --
These mysterious initiates --
All the traditions of the earth --
One day, saying that he had known Pontius Pilate --
There is a body that enfolds the whole of the world --
Simply because they change and hide their names --
And the famous confraternity of the Rosy Cross --
The majority were in reality only Rosicrucians --
Valentiniani per ambiguitates bilingues --
The visions are white, blue, white, pale red --
Gevurah --
Beydelus, Demeyes, Adulex --
I' mi son Lia.
Other Titles: Pendolo di Foucault.
Responsibility: Umberto Eco ; translated from the Italian by William Weaver.
