Top 10 Occult Books of 2017

 

From John Dee, King James the first to Sir Issac Newton there is no death of famous personalities who sought to tap the hidden knowledge of the occult.  In fact, one of the branches of the occult, alchemy began in the quest for the philosopher’s stone and the ability to transmute one object into another, such as gold. Whether it is the quest for immortal life or the ability to transmute ordinary elements into gold, Occult has always been a source of inspiration to many and continues to be to this day.

If you thought that Occult mainly concerned the ability to change lead or tin into gold or is about extending the span of your life, you would be sorely mistaken. Occult consists of various subjects and subtopics, ranging from white magic such as Wicca to herbalism, from Tarot to spiritualism. In fact, it may even surprise you to know that Occult, is still widely practiced in India but in the form of various religious rituals. Since the term Occult relates to hidden knowledge, any knowledge that is mysterious and hard to understand should come under the realm of Occult. These books are some of the best Occult books to come out this year, do check out the list.
