Anyone here involved with or know much about Martinism? I've always found the topic interesting but have yet to study anything in depth or read any of the works of the founders.
Based on some of the readings I've done on the basic doctrines, especially around ideas of the Fall and reintegration, it sounds quite similar to and perhaps a Christian version of what one might find in Daoist alchemy or otherwise, i.e. restoration of the primordial state. For those with a knowledge of the topic, is this accurate? Does Martinism have a relation with alchemy, Western or otherwise?
Finally, does anyone know any good literature on the topic? Any particular work recommended to start with?
