Below are a selection of books about 'Sacred Geometry', which reflect the progression from ancient peoples' studies of nature through their art and expressed throught the wide variety of temples from Stonehenge to Gothic Cathedrals.

The patterns discerned in 'Nature' over countless millennia by antediluvian scientists, and the shaman and astronomer-priests of every subsequent culture around the world, shows an understanding of the growth patterns in nature which the ancient mind percieved but which modern peoples have all but forgotten in the hustle & bustle of modern 'civilisation'.

"The Lost Science of Measuring the Earth:
Discovering the Sacred Geometry of the Ancients"

by Robin Heath & John Michell

EU English Edition

"Two leading researchers into ancient wisdom demonstrate that the earth’s dimensions were accurately known prior to 3000 BC. These astonishing findings, available for the first time, include a system of surveying and measure based on simple numerical and geometrical rules documents that remnants of this science still existed in medieval times when it became lost.

It appears that the system was applied worldwide. Chapters include: Measurement and the Moon; Stonehenge & the Lunation Triangle; The Preseli Triangle; Prehistoric Precision: A Summary; The Numbers that Measure the Earth; Traditions of Ancient Surveyors in Britain; Secrets of the 52nd Parallel; Dates and Speculations A Summary; Appendices."

"Sacred Geometry" by Miranda Lundy


EU English Edition

"Geometry is one of a group of special sciences - Number, Music and Cosmology are the others - found identically in nearly every culture on earth. In this small volume, Miranda Lundy presents a unique introduction to this most ancient and timeless of universal sciences.

Sacred Geometry demonstrates what happens to space in two dimensions - a subject last flowering in the art, science and architecture of the Renaissance and seen in the designs of Stonehenge, mosque decorations and church windows. With exquisite hand-drawn images throughout showing the relationship between shapes, the patterns of coin circles, and the definition of the golden section, it will forever alter the way in which you look at a triangle, hexagon, arch, or spiral."

 

"The Fourth Dimension: Sacred Geometry, Alchemy and Mathematics"
by Rudolf Steiner

an image/link direct to this product at amazon.com
EU English Edition

"The point, line, plane and solid objects represent the first three dimensions, but a kind of reversal of space is involved in the ascent to a fourth dimension. Steiner leads us to the brink of this new perspective—as nearly as it can be done with words, diagrams, analogies, and examples of many kinds. In doing so, he continues his life-long project of demonstrating that our objective, everyday thinking is the lowest rung of a ladder that reaches up to literally infinite heights.

The talks in this series and the selections from the question-and-answer sessions on many mathematical topics over the years are translated into English for the first time in The Fourth Dimension."

 

"Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code"
by Stephen Skinner

EU English Edition

"The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined.

Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite."

 

"A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science" by Michael S. Schneider

EU English Edition

"In the spiral of the nautilus shell, in the veins of a maple leaf, in the bonds of the benzene ring--everywhere he looks, Schneider sees a cosmic geometry. Of course, the lines of this geometry have long attracted the attention of probing minds, including Pythagoras, Plato, the Psalmist, Demetrius, and Plotinus. The author weaves the insights of these thinkers and many more together in a tapestry of reflections (richly illustrated) on celestial harmonies. Once initiated into the ancient mysteries, the reader will recognize profound meanings--not merely scientific utility--in squares, triangles, and other common shapes. The reader needs no extraordinary expertise in mathematics to explore these pages, just a relish for intellectual adventure."

 

"Chartres: Sacred Geometry, Sacred Space"
by Gordon Strachan

EU English Edition

"In this ground-breaking new work, Gordon Strachan explores the magnificent structure of Chartres Cathedral and its influences on the medieval master builders.

Using Chartres as a starting point, Dr. Strachan shows how the origins of the Gothic style—the pointed arch—may lie in Islamic architecture. He goes on to a fascinating and detailed consideration of how a particular architectural space affects us, and how sacred geometry creates sacred space."

 

"Order in Space (Spiral-bound)" by Keith Critchlow

EU English Edition

"Offering imaginative insight into the area where mathematics and the arts meet, this book may be used as a practical tool by the architect, designer or scientist who has to deal with such problems as defining space, distributing patterns, packing and stacking, and communication links."

"American Dreamer: Bucky Fuller and the Sacred Geometry of Nature"
by Scott Eastham

an image/link direct to this product at amazon.com
EU English Edition

"In this exploration, Tom Cowan employs literary history to discover the shamanic roots of the Celtic spirit. It explores the shamanic roots of druidism, witchcraft and Celtic Christianity. Cowan draws together the shamans and the bards of old Europe and tells their spellbinding stories of shapeshifting and vision work. He cites the celtic myths and poems that evoke a strong connection to the ways of the shaman, and the spiritual importance that the words, story-telling and drumming can have in contemporary society."

 

"Sacred Geometry: Philosophy and Practice" by Robert Lawlor


EU English Edition

"Discusses the mythological properties assigned to geometric forms, and covers the Golden Section, gnomonic spirals, music, and the squaring of the circle.

Explore a range of interests, philosophies, religions, and cultures—from Kabbalah to Freemasonry, Buddhism to Hinduism, myth to magic. The distinguished authors bring a wealth of knowledge, visionary thinking, and accessible writing to each intriguing subject in these lavishly illustrated, large-format paperback books."

 

"The Golden Section: Nature's Greatest Secret" by Scott Olsen


EU English Edition

"A concise and useful handbook on the Golden Section—also known as the Golden Ratio and Golden Mean. The Golden Section is a line segment divided into two parts, such that the ratio of the short portion to the longer portion is equal to the ratio of the longer portion to the whole. It is one of the most elegant and beautiful ratios of the mathematical universe because of its combination of elegance and simplicity—hence the divine nature of its name. Drawing on art, architecture, philosophy, nature, mathematics, geometry, and music—and beautifully illustrated in the Wooden Books fashion with all manner of images—The Golden Section will tell the story of this remarkable construct and its wide ranging impact on civilization and the natural world."

 

"Symmetry: The Ordering Principle" by David Wade


EU English Edition

"Symmetry underlies almost every aspect of nature and our experience of the world, from the subatomic realms of quantum mechanics to the equations of physics, in art, architecture and our concepts of morality and justice. In this little book Welsh writer and artist David Wade paints a picture of one of the most elusive and pervasive concepts known to man."
