William B Stoecker: Nikolai Konstantinovich Roerich (10/9/1874-12/13/1947) was one of the most colorful, mysterious, and ambiguous figures of the entire twentieth century. Born to a prominent family in St. Petersburg, Russia, he graduated in 1897 from the Petersburg Academy of Arts and pursued a career as an artist, writer, and amateur archaeologist. In 1901 he married (for life) Helena, Ivanovna Shaposhnikova. A mystic, Roerich believed in something called “Living Ethics” and believed that, while civilization is material (cities, industry, etc.) culture is spiritual in origin. He was the author of Roerich’s Pact to protect cultural values, an agreement signed by FDR and the representatives of thirty five other nations. Roerich studied Hinduism and Eastern mysticism and philosophy, and translated The Secret Doctrine, the work of the rather ambiguous, even sinister Russian mystic “Madame” Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. He searched for the legendary Shambhalla in Asia.

I agree, he seems to be a fascinating character.


I first heard about him because he was referenced in some of HP Lovecraft's stories.

I love Roerich, discovered his works when I first got online in 1996. His art moves me deeply.
I went ot pick out some of my favorite works, but what does it matter?
I encourage you to pick:

The initial remark on the article tho was why you continued to label Blavatsky as sinister? I never really held that impression tho I have not really gotten into her works much. What makes her sinister in your opinion?

For me, there are several but they are not able to be linked here from this source: http://www.roerich.org/wwp.html


Mother of the World
Hidden Treasure (this one has a physiological effect on me)
Battle in the Heavens. 1912

And then a lot of the landscapes are particularly striking to me.

Talented fella.  I like just about anything he's painted.  Great use of color and vastness.

I have to agree. Some of his paintings create a emotional, mental and (sometimes) physiological shift inside when you view them.

In the 90's, I printed off his paintings (on a really bad printer, with the rollers and stuff) and sandwiched them between clear plastic and hung them in the windows. His paintings, while poorly printed, took on colorful life with the sun shining thru them.

It's just my subjective opinion...I don't trust her. Partly it's because a lot of the things she said in her books are simply not credible and are contradicted by geological and archaeological evidence. And partly it's  because her movement spawned Alice Bailey and the literally demonic Lucis Trust.   William B Stoecker

Although I don't particularly like Alice Bailey, the Luciferian movement was originally a peaceful one, deliberately destroyed by the catholic church during the Albigensian  crusade.  Lucifer was also called the Light Bringer, meaning of course the bringer of knowledge.  The church wasn't keen on letting masses learn anything.

I respect that. I neither desire to defend her nor really want to take a stance of any kind on her. Just wondered why you felt the way you do. Thank you for explaining your impression.
