Madame Blavatsky And Her "theosophy": A Study (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Madame Blavatsky and Her "Theosophy": A StudyIn the Revue des Deux Mondes for July, 1888, Mr. Emile Burnouf, the eminent Sanskrit scholar, has an article entitled Le Bouddhisme en Occident which deals in flattering terms with Madame Blavatsky's "theosophy.""This creed," he says, "has grown with astounding rapidity.

In 1888 the society had 179 centres. In 1890 it had 241 centres.

Mr. Edward Maitland, a man of genius, the author of the "Pilgrim and the Shrine," joined it, together with Mr. Sinnett and Dr. Hartmann, able writers. Professor Max Müller has given advice to Colonel Olcott on the subject of Oriental translations, and borne testimony to the good work that in that direction "theosophy" has accomplished. And Mr. Gladstone has done this "substitute for a religion" the signal honour of giving it and Mrs. Besant, its chief, a long theological article in the Nineteenth Century, that waxwork gallery of the notabilities of the hour.
