In ancient Pompeii, just before the fateful eruption of Vesuvius, a proud Roman tribune, Ombricius, encounters Hedonia Metella, Priestess of Hecate, and Alcyone, the Priestess of Isis, at a friend's wedding celebration. Alcyone's spiritual light captures his heart, but her mentor and adoptive father requires Ombricius to be initated into the religion of Isis– forbidden by Rome– before he may marry Alcyone. After he has agreed to enter upon the initiate's path, he becomes acquainted with Hedonia Metella, who attempts to lure him away. Told in intricate detail, this is a timeless tale of the conflict between profane and sublime love, good and evil. Schuré, the author of several books on esotericism and metaphysics, has blended his knowledge of Ancient Egyptian and Greek religion and history to bring this drama to life.
