Edmond Bordeaux Székely: Essenes

Grandson of Alexandre Szekely, the eminent poet and Unitarian Bishop of Cluj; a grandson of Csoma de Koros, Transylvanian traveler and philologist who, more than a century ago, compiled the first grammar of the Tibetan language, an English-Tibetan dictionary, and wrote, "Asiatic Researches". He was also Librarian to the Royal Asiatic Society in India. Dr. Bordeaux earned his Ph.D. degree from the University of Paris and other degrees from the Universities of Vienna and Leipzig. He also held professorships of Philosophy and Experimental Psychology at the University of Cluj.

A well-known philologist in Sanscrit, Aramaic, Greek and Latin, Dr. Bordeaux spoke ten modern languages. In 1928, he co-founded the International Biogenic Society with French Nobel-Prize winning author Romain Rolland. His most important translations, in addition to selected texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Essene Gospel of Peace (over a million copies in 26 languages) are selected texts from the Zend Avesta and from pre-colombian codices of ancient Mexico. His last works on the Essene Way of Biogenic Living have attracted worldwide interest. He is the author of more than 80 books on philosophy and ancient cultures published in many countries. Professor Székely was also the founder of Archeosophy. N.B.

Edmond Bordeaux Székely was born in the first ten years of the twentieth century, his mother was a French Roman Catholic and his father was a Hungarian Unitarian. He first educated in a Catholic monastery of the Piarist order, which specialized in classical education, with an emphasis on Greek, Latin and Ecclesiastic literature.

When Edmond was eighteen years old, he was speaking classic Greek and Latin fluently and graduated magna cum laude, becoming the valedictorian of his class. At the same time, he prepared his obligatory thesis for graduation , with the title: "Let St. Francis Sing in your Heart." After graduating from the Piarist school, he attended the University of Paris, completing his education at the Sorbonne for his doctorate in philosophy. Right after his graduation, he was called to the office of the Headmaster, Msgr. Mondik, the Prior of the Monastery, who offered him a chance to continue his research on St.Francis at the Vatican, where an old schoolmate of his was then the Prefect of the Archives, and even supplied a letter of introduction.

During his studies in the archives of the Vatican and the convent of Monte Cassino, he found the scriptures by Plinius about the Essenes, and the Gospel of Peace of the Essenes, (this is described in "The Discovery of The Essene Gospel; The Essenes and the Vatican"), in which could be found many things that nowadays cannot be found in "The Bible"anymore, especially concerning the actual mental and physical healings by Jesus and he started to distribute, privately at first, the Essene Gospel of Peace in French, and gave lectures concerning it.

Szekely, Edmond Bordeaux. Editor and Translator.
The unknown Book of the Essenes, and the lost scrolls of the Essene Brotherhood translated from the original Hebrew and Aramaic texts. These indicate that the teachings of Jesus, including some which we find in our Bible,are much deeper in meaning than previously assumed.
