Theos-World Thesaurus on theosophy
Apr 15, 2000 12:26 PM
For the theosophical library in the Netherlands (TS), we're
planning to create a thesaurus of theosophical terms.
Once that is available, it can be linked to the resources
like books and magazines which we have available for
the public. We hope it will help people interested in specific
subjects find the relevant materials quickly, and also provide
them with a kind of roadmap of terms that are linked together.
My question to all of you is: does anyone know of
some thesaurus in the field of theosophy that has already
been created or is in use by some library for instance?
It's not purely details of the ancient wisdom itself but also
more broadly the important people involved in the movement,
and related subjects on esoteric philosophy in general.
I noticed there is some good material online like occult
glossaries or the Index to the Secret Doctrine; even though
in English (and we are starting out in the Dutch language)
that kind of material is suitable as a starting point to establish
a list of important theosophical terms. But more interesting
will be a clearly defined list of keywords and their cross-
references, hierarchies etc.
Any tips are welcome!
