ANNOUNCING THE PUBLICATION OF

CYRIL SCOTT AND A HIDDEN SCHOOL:
TOWARDS THE PEELING OF AN ONION

Theosophical History Occasional Paper No. VII

By Jean Overton Fuller

RELEASE DATE;   DECEMBER 1, 1998

For the musical world, Cyril Scott is a composer, but for Theosophists he
is the author of the three "Inititiate" books: The Initiate,, The Initiate
in the New World, and The Initiate in the Dark Cycle.  Originally signed
"by His Pupil" and only later identified as Scott, the question remained,
had Scott really met a Master, Sir Thomas, or was the whole story
fictitious?  Jean Overton Fuller's investigations have led her to the house
where Scott really received his teachings-not in the West country but in
Sussex.  There it was that he was given the instruction to marry Rose-the
Viola  of his books-though it was given in the name of one of Blavatsky's
teachers.  Who was he told that she and he had been in their immediately
past life?  Why had they spent seven years hesitating as to whether they
should marry?  Rose wrote a book, Despised and Rejected, which was the
object of a prosecution, and banned.  That was known.  But Jean Overton
Fuller has discovered that Scott also wrote a book that was banned.  This
banned autobiography and Rose's novels in a labyrinthine way point up
incidents and situations in their own lives and those of their associates.
After the  death of their link with their Teacher, they became fascinated
by the astrology of David Anrias, who unfortunately put them against
Krishnamurti.  But H.K. Challoner, author of The Wheel of Rebirth, comes
into it too, as we glimpse principally through Rose's novels, each one a
layer of an onion, to be peeled off to reveal another layer of mystery
beneath.
