When Moses fed Manna to the Israelites he told them that they would see the glory of God. And indeed they did. Religious historian Dan Merkur provides compelling evidence that this was the Israelites initiation into a psychadelic mystery cult that induced spiritual visions through bread containing ergot-a psychoactive fungus containing the same chemicals from which LSD is made. Citing Biblical material as well as later Jewish and Christian writings, he reveals the existence of an unbroken tradition of Western psychadelic sacraments fro Moses and manna to Jesus and the Eucharist. Most importantly he shows that this was not a heretical tradition, but a normal, Bible-based spirituality, a continuation of the ancient tradition of visionary mysticism. Even when it became unacceptable to religious orthodoxy it was perpetuated by Gnostics, masons, and kabbalists, as well as through the legends of the Holy Grail.
