About Manly P. Hall

Manly P. Hall was the preeminent philosopher of the 20th century who lectured for 70 years (1920 to 1990) to make ancient wisdom and obscure esoteric knowledge available for all truth seekers.


He is perhaps best known for his magnum opus, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, an elaborately illustrated, large encyclopedia of Western mystery traditions, secret societies and symbolic philosophy.


He gave 7,000 public talks on the subject of philosophy, religion and science, with the goal of helping each individual to learn, grow and build for themselves a practical and meaningful philosophy of life.
