Handbook of the theosophical current by Olav Hammer( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few religious currents have been as influential as the Theosophical. Yet few currents have been so under-researched, and the Brill Handbook of the Theosophical Current thus represents pioneering research. A first section surveys the main people and events involved in the Theosophical Society from its inception to today, and outlines the Theosophical worldview. A second, substantial section covers most significant religions to emerge in the wake of the Theosophical Society - Anthroposophy, the Point Loma community, the I AM religious activity, the Summit Lighthouse Movement, the New Age, theosophical UFO religions, and numerous others. Finally, the interaction of the Theosophical current with contemporary culture - including gender relations, art, popular fiction, historiography, and science - are discussed at length
The Cambridge companion to new religious movements( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New religions emerge as distinct entities in the religious landscape when innovations are introduced by a charismatic leader or a schismatic group leaves its parent organization. New religious movements (NRMs) often present novel doctrines and advocate unfamiliar modes of behavior, and have therefore often been perceived as controversial. NRMs have, however, in recent years come to be treated in the same way as established religions, that is, as complex cultural phenomena involving myths, rituals and canonical texts. This Companion discusses key features of NRMs from a systematic, comparative perspective, summarizing results of forty years of research. The volume addresses NRMs that have caught media attention, including movements such as Scientology, New Age, the Neopagans, the Sai Baba movement and Jihadist movements active in a post-9/11 context. An essential resource for students of religious studies, the history of religion, sociology, anthropology and the psychology of religion"--

Belief transformations : some aspects of the relation between science and religion in Transcendental Meditation (TM) and the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) by Mikael Rothstein( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No contemporary religion has managed to ignore the challenge of modern science. Belief Transformations is a case-study of two different new religions in the West, both derived from Hinduism. Transcendental Meditation (TM) and the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). While TM has attempted to demonstrate the benefits of meditation on 'scientific' grounds, secularizing a religious activity to the point where it becomes acceptable to modern rationality, ISKCON has gone the other way, rejecting the scientific world-view altogether."--BOOK JACKET
