Carl Jung’s Seven Sermons to the Dead were written at the high point of his “confrontation with the unconscious” and are considered the origin of his later work. He ascribes their authorship to Basilides, a second century teacher of gnosis who resided in Alexandria, Egypt, where, for Jung, the ancient esoteric elements of East and West were brought together to form a vital planetary spirituality for the present age.
