Jung devotes 32 folio pages to this story — these folios are visually and textually perhaps the most beautiful sections of the Red Book. In the facsimile, they run from folio 37 to 69 -- look at these pages carefully as you read the text. The translated text of the story of Izdubar is found from page to We have reached the core sections in the second book of Liber Novus - and this part of the book completely confounds most readers. Things become suddenly dark and chaotic. The images become increasingly dense with archetypal power.
It is not easy going; it can be painful. It was hard going and painful for Jung: This is the darkest section of Liber Novus, and perhaps also the most important for understanding his conception of the Shadow, of Evil, and of the opposites encountered within the divine image.
I believe one cannot understand Jung's psychology, and his affirmation of the reality of evil, without deeply experiencing these sections of Liber Novus.
This Seminar is now available online in mp3 audio format: By request, our seminar has been extended another month -- allowing us time to go to Hell with Jung, and consider the Hermeneutics of Hell. In the last meeting, we talked about a key section in Liber Novus: This is a crucial event, and it needs more comment. How does one interpret Hell? What was this Hell Jung visited? We will start with a look at the tradition of Hell in the Western visionary literature, focusing on Dante, William Blake, Emanuel Swedenborg.
Then we will attempt to locate Jung in the context of the tradition he declared as his own: I suggest that there is not only a "Tradition of Vision" in Western culture, but that the tradition is defined and conjoined in its "Hermeneutics of Vision. But what the Hell does this have to do with Jungian psychology? I here offer my perspective on that question. My lecture extensively references a very important address give by Dr. I recommend it to you: Shamdasani's presentation is available as a Library of Congress webcast.
The second part of the seminar starts with a brief group discussion, followed by my further comments on the Hermeneutics of Vision.
Jung twice painted images of his master and teacher, Philemon — a ghostly guru with the great blue wings of a kingfisher. Over the image painted in Liber Novus, Jung scribed this appellation: And what is a Prophet? What did Jung mean with such words? He said of the Sermons: In Jung suffered a nearly fatal pulmonary embolism and heart attack. For three weeks he floated between life and death.
During these weeks he had several transformative visions: They were the most tremendous things I have ever experienced. I would never have imagined that any such experience was possible. It was not a product of imagination. The visions and experiences were utterly real; there was nothing subjective about them; they all had a quality of absolute objectivity.
The visions refocused his work, and turned him again to a central theme in Liber Novus that had not yet been adequately conveyed within his writings. One central concern during this period was communicating his perception that the Christian age was reaching its end time.
A new God image was constellating in the psyche of modern humanity. But this is a difficult process, and a period of great disorder and conflict.
During these last years of life, Jung said: Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections , ed. Aniela Jaffe revised edition, Pantheon, This is the one book everyone in the group must read again during our seminar — even if you have read it many times before. While critics once questioned its accuracy, during the last several years many primary documents have become available that support its general veracity.

Jung, The Red Book: Liber Novus , ed. Sonu Shamdasani, tr. Everyone participating in this seminar should own a copy of the The Red Book: Liber Novus. It is available at Amazon. It is a beautiful book. As we progress through the seminar, specific reading assignments relevant to the current session will be indicated.
Seminar participants should become familiar with the general biography of Jung. The problem is that there are really no adequate biographies of C. Jung — none of the published biographies had any access to the Red Book and the other early primary documents that are so crucially important to understanding Jung. Publication of the Red Book and other associated material has disclosed the great inadequacy of nearly all the past biographies of Jung.
But Barbara Hannah was close to Jung for over thirty years, and her first-hand account of his life — though limited in context and focus — may be the most useful biography available. We will discuss some of the other biographical works that might be of interest, along with their various limitations.
Sonu Shamdasani, the editor of the Red Book and the foremost historian of Jung, reviews all of the biographical treatments of Jung. Read this before reading and believing any of the many biographies. It is short pages , well informed and very accurate in its assessments. After reading this, you will be prepared to critically consider the various Jung biographies.
Lance S. Institute of Los Angeles, Fall This article is now available online in pdf format. Based in part on the first set of Red Book lectures, in July Dr. Owens published a major essay on C. Jung's visionary experience and the events that led to creation of the Red Book , " The Hermeneutics of Vision: Jung and the Red Book ".
This monograph-length piece is featured in The Gnostic 3, the third issue of a new annual journal examining "Gnosticism in all its forms". The cover of this issue is dedicated to C. The folio-sized volume, Though Jung and others usually referred to the book simply as the "Red Book", he had the top of the spine of the book stamped in gilt with the book's formal title, Liber Novus "The New Book". Jung subsequently interleaved the seven original parchment sheets at the beginning of the bound volume.
After receiving the bound volume in , he began transcribing his text and illustrations directly onto the bound pages.
Over the next many years, Jung ultimately filled only of the approximately pages bound in the Red Book folio. Inside the book now are completed pages of text and illustrations including the loose parchment sheets , all from Jung's hand: The Red Book is currently held, along with other valuable and private items from Jung's archive, in a bank vault in Zurich.
During Jung's life, several people saw his Red Book — it was often present in his office — but only a very few individuals who were personally trusted by Jung had an opportunity to read it. After Jung's death in , Jung's heirs held the book as a private legacy, and refused access to it by scholars or other interested parties.
After many years of careful deliberations, the estate of C. Jung finally decided in to allow publication of the work, and thereafter began preparations for the publication. The decision to publish was apparently aided by presentations made by Sonu Shamdasani, who had already discovered substantial private transcriptions of portions of the Red Book in archival repositories. On occasion of the publication in October , the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City displayed the original book along with three of Jung's original "Black Book" journals and several other related artifacts; this exhibit was open from 7 October to 25 January It was the center of a major display and conference at the Library of Congress from June 17 — September 25, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
