Twelve Tribe Nations by John Michell
Book DescriptionThroughout the world - in countries as far apart as China, Ireland, Iceland and Madgascar - there survive records and traditions of whole nations being divided into twelve tribes and twelve regions, each corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac and to one of the twelve months of the year. Best known are the twelve tribes of Israel under King Solomon, but there have been many others. Wherever they occur, they are associated with an ideal social order and a golden age of humanity. Exploring examples of these twelve-tribe societies, John Michell and Christine Rhone explain the blueprint for this organisational structure and look at the musical, mythological and astronomical enchantments that kept these societies in harmony with the cosmos. They, also, examine the astrological landscapes of classical Greece, the aligned St. Michael sanctuaries of Europe and the true site and function of the Temple in Jerusalem. They show that the sacred geography of these sites was part of an ancient code of knowledge that produced harmony between nature and humanity and is as relevant to our present and future as it was to our past. * Connects the zodiac, the twelve months of the year and the political divisions of ancient nations * Explores the sacred geography of ancient landscapes in Europe and Israel Originally published by Thames & Hudson, 1991
