The Danish writer and researcher on history, OVE VON SPAETH, analyses distinctive
traces from sources of antiquity and ancient history in order to disclose the
mystery of the historical Moses. This also includes his investigation of
ancient cultic conditions and initiation mysteries, previously often
neglected on the broad historical level.
The writer's discoveries
concerning the ancient cults show important keys to an enlarged
historical dimension - a fascinating past far more abundant and advanced than
elements: - based on studies and research of also astronomical history and
Egyptology the writer has published a unique treatise on the oldest star
map of the world. As the first researcher to indentify the ancient
information in the map he has specifically disclosed the
exact dating of the map - a scientific pioneer work which has gained
international admiration and respect - and among other things it has
contributed to the first exact dating one of the most important epochs of ancient
Egypt (cf. The Senmut Star-map).
In his books and articles
Ove von Spaeth shows an infectious enthusiasm appreciated from all sides
emphasized together with the acknowledged results of his long standing
intensive research of the rare and controversial material. His way of
disseminating information about important subjects makes the books immediately accessible to
everybody - also to people without a professional background.
Main areas of the writer's work: - 1) pioneering research,
thorough elaboration, and
publishing of the five unique volumes about the historical Moses and his influence. - 2) the first exact dating of the oldest star map of the
world leading to an important improvement of Egyptian chronology. - 3) books and
articles about important but neglected or forgotten scientific and spiritual
circumstances influencing early history. - 4) establishment of
the Moses-series' own web-site, which includes adequate archives and
comprehensive bibliography and documentation
of the research processes with news on results and propagation (cf. present section 7).
Eventually - after more
than 25 years of detailed researching all relevant ancient studies - Ove von
Spaeth is able to reply to questions which many researchers previously for
various reasons did not confront. Among other things he had the benefit of
Denmark's Royal National Library in Copenhagen containing the world's
biggest collections of Tycho Brahe documents as well as Jewish historical
books and manuscripts. According to F.J.
Billeskov Jansen, Ph.D., Professor in Literature History, University of
Copenhagen: "... Danish author Ove von Spaeth appears to be one of Denmark's
boldest researchers - he engrosses his readers' mind with his discoveries
about the famous Moses. His character as a historian is unique. ..."
In addition, with talent
and knowledge on disclosing superior coherences our author has contributed
with an important, eye-opening resource for our mutual recollection
heritage. (See e.g. Info+FAQ
the Moses Heritage from Egypt").

Pioneer and expert: - Jarl
Hansen's professional experience reaches far back. In 1973 he worked
out his first computer programming and astronomic diagrams for
computer-based astronomy; years later he was among the first private
designers and programmers of web-sites.
A long time before personal computers were common, Jarl Hansen, even at that time an
experienced computer pioneer, made it possible to establish sufficient
computer power and programming for his own company, so that based on
this assistance Ove von Spaeth in the early 1980's was able to break
the code of the built-in dating of Egypt's (and the
star map. (Today, astronomical computing work is not produced any longer
number of professional web-sites with complete internet solutions
created by Jarl Hansen's company, i.e. Macrosys, are highly recognized
by the often bilingual groups of clients - systems individually
tailor-made in a close operation.
Macrosys solutions are widely known as attractive, well-organized - and
easy to work with. Everything has been tested with severe demands
ensuring any work to function optimally according to its purpose - also
with different kinds of computer equipment.
The web-site of
the book-series on the historical Moses, i.e.
www.moses-egypt.net, continuously up-dated and expanded,
is one of the finest proofs of this.
In connection with Ove von Spaeth's launching in 1999 of the web-site of his
book series, i.e. www.moses-egypt.net, Jarl Hansen and his Macrosys
Web-development have rendered prodigious technical assistance and know-how on
Internet communication for years. With his professional background as a designer Ove von Spaeth made the design of the web-site of his books (cf.
section 7 below) in close cooperation with Macrosys' constantly alert
Ove von Spaeth: - "... The early astronomic computer work for my
research over the years as well as later the sublime technical preparation of the
complex net-publication of information, press references and archives
about my books'
web-site, had hardly been successful without this very professional base
with Jarl Hansen and Macrosys, his quality workshop. ..."
C.A. REITZEL Publishers began to publish Ove von Spaeth's five-volume
series, i.e. "Assassinating Moses", in May, 1999. Publishing of the
entire series was planned to be concluded within approx. five years. According to
Ove von Spaeth: "... Publishing my new orientating and
controversial work was both a brave and a visionary decision made by Mr. SVEND
OLUFSEN, manager, owner, and leader of the publishing company, which had won great distinction for their impressive contribution to
Danish culture by a continuous flow of many years of culturally important
:: History and present
times: - C.A. Reitzel Publisher and Bookseller, Ltd., was founded in
1819 by Carl Andreas Reitzel, who at that time established a university book shop and
also a publishing company of his own.
It is Soeren Kierkegaard and Hans Christian Andersen's original
publishing house -
and also the oldest book shop in Denmark, i.e. "the
Golden Age Publisher and Bookstore" already at that time publishing works,
too, of all the great writers. The publishing
house - to publish for and in close co-operation with e.g. The
Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, The Soeren Kierkegaard
Society, The Danish Society of Language and Literature, Royal Danish
Geographical Society, The University Library, and institutions of higher
education and public administration. The bookstore
- is a supplier of books currently to the Royal
National Library, The University Library and a string of research libraries and
institutions of higher education - and supplies books, journals and
periodicals also to university libraries of other countries such as Germany,
Britain, the USA, Norway, and Sweden (e.g. The Hebrew University- and
National Library in Jerusalem purchased Ove von Spaeth's book-series on
the historical Moses).
Books about Soeren Kierkegaard are still a corner stone of the publishing
programme. Also, C.A. Reitzel Publishers has for many years, approx.
fortnightly, published new books on culture - not least specialising in
philosophy, cultural history, religion, humanitarian research, contemporary
history and literature. Also in this respect this publisher is
an ideal distributor of the Moses-series.

are established and performed by Mr. ERIK ANSVANG, who is also in charge of
the implementation. Erik Ansvang is lecturer, writer, principal of courses,
and tour organizer and guide. He is a Freemason, webmaster and author of
the Wisdom Fund Network, which offers open access articles and e-books, also
with inspiration for peace work and conflict resolution. He has by decades
of cooperation with his wife, Thora Lund Mollerup, his co-author of several
books. In particular, he gives lectures and courses on the spiritual culture
of Egypt through millennia - a number of these lectures are directly based
on the books by Ove von Spaeth.
Background, insight, and experience: - Erik Ansvang, former co-chairman
of Theosophical Society Scandinavia, is chairman of the
private humanitarian trust The Wisdom Network (in Danish: Visdomsnettet),
and he also is the webmaster on its net-portal.
Erik Ansvang has visited and stayed in Egypt more than 50 times, and he has thoroughly studied most of the important ancient sites of the country -
frequently when all these sites were more easily accessible also for
photographing. He keeps a file of many thousands of exclusive exposures.
For decades Erik Ansvang and his wife, THORA LUND MOLLERUP - who is his
co-writer of the book, "Pyramid Enigmas and Temple Mysteries" (LemuelBooks 2007) -
have worked with esoteric Egyptology. Concurrently, the couple teaches
spiritual knowledge and arrange workshops, school courses, and studytours to Egypt.
On the Internet the comprehensive and successful portal Visdomsnettet.dk,
The Wisdom Net, is created by Erik Ansvang. The beautiful and dynamic
website, hitherto in Danish, offers without charge a wide range of themes
of information in hundreds of articles on esoteric and holistic science,
philosophy, and spiritual development, e-books, a creative meditation
system, work for peace and conflict solutions, and the many texts on Ancient
Egypt - all to be downloaded. The portal Visdomsnettet.dk also presents a
substantial amount of Ove von Spaeth's articles.
"The Guide to Egypt",
Erik Ansvang's profound series of lectures, has been created as a well
documented esoteric additional supplement to traditional Egyptology. Among
this series of 36 instructive lectures, as many as 6 lectures deal with Moses
on the basis of Ove von Spaeth's book-series, i.e. "Assassinating
Moses"; the entire material is available also as CD series, MP3
transmissions, and in weekend courses (cf.
Participants of the Moses-tours to Egypt arranged by Erik Ansvang will also be presented
with this material, continuously supplemented by his own substantial
knowledge and experience. According to Ove von

Thirax.dk was established as an exclusive net portal presenting inspiring
articles, narratives, essays, links, and web-sites on the alternative world as
well as on alternative historical articles. - Mr. ERLING MADSEN created this special
portal in 2002 and has managed it currently.
:: Background: - Erling Madsen
owned several electronic and data companies - and had 35 years
of experience with computer work. The companies were fairly successful
with many good employees; however, he suffered from a coronary thrombus
which made him decide to sell the firms. The alteration influenced him at a
personal level all of which contributed to some new mental and spiritual
experiences. According to Erling Madsen: "During a stroll in the woods I got the
idea that I could use my abilities as a programmer to create an internet
home-page presenting knowledge on spiritual matters and the alternative
as a whole. I only realized that many such web-sites existed already
when I had created the portal, www.thirax.dk."
Ove von Spaeth: "...A considerable effort is made by Erling Madsen in
communicating important knowledge - also of the kind that is less accepted.
He has also created an ongoing communication of a substantial amount of my
own articles for instance about star knowledge, history of religion, mythology
research, and ideas of reincarnation, so really this knowledge is publicly available,
received and read. He has generously created a special
channel for these articles at THIRAX SPECIAL:
Erling Madsen himself has written, simply
that the purpose of the entire portal,
thirax.dk is: "... only to communicate
knowledge to as many as possible - knowledge which may not be acceptable to
everybody …". Later he also created a Thirax SPECIAL for
Ulla Runchel, a writer
specializing in spiritual advance and future research.
Thirax has more than 400
visitors in 24 hours. Unusual articles of a high quality are continuously
supplied to thirax.dk, which also contains a substantial number of
articles in English.

VERSATILE DISTRIBUTION AND DIRECT SALE OF BOOKS VIA THE INTERNET
Distribution, Super Book Sales via the Internet
"BOG & MYSTIK" (i.e. "Books and Mysteries") is a both comprehensive and
of great interest, founded on distinguished traditions of
communication and active
distribution of special categories of books, not least about alternative and
spiritual subjects often not
:: From a living previous
history: - around 1950 in Copenhagen Mr. Poul Strube opened a bookstore as an independent
shop - a true pioneer work and for many
years the only bookstore in Denmark distributing books on alternative
subjects. Strube also started his own publishing house. According to
Ove von Spaeth: "... I was a frequent customer for many years of
the Strube Bookstore, and I bought many books about exciting discoveries and research
they were only
available in this bookstore. When I published my first experimental works, Strube
was the basis (on commission). ..."
When Poul Strube passed
away in 1991, his wife Jonna carried on the firm. In April
2000 she changed the address of the bookstore and the publishing
house; it was well-known everywhere, and the important files of
clients were a
network with a comprehensive number of addresses of interested people
all over the country.
Mrs. Jonna Strube passed away in 2002.
Mrs. LYKKE OLSEN, a good friend of Jonna Strube, took over the addresses and the
of books, and she was traded via the Internet from her address
www.bog-mystik.dk. She was so
successful that in December 2004, she opened the doors to a new bookstore,
It is perfectly
true that this bookstore maintains the Strube spirit, now with
comprehensive new initiatives, elaborated selection of commodities, e.g.
music, etc. - cf. the
versatile assortment, yet still focusing mainly on books about the body, mind, and
knowledge of the alternative world. - "Bog & Mystik" is established as one of
most important and versatile bookstores via the net and as a shop.
According to author Ove von Spaeth: "...
I feel very fortunate to join in such
cooperation not least
which is connected with their efficient
advertising of my books - and in the extended contact with also many new
attached to this shop. ..."
Concurrently with the shop sales
Mr. Dennis Olsen, Lykke's husband continuously
improves and updates the net book shop
www.bog-mystik.dk. A great number of the books are in English.
As an on-line shop "Bog &
Mystik, books for the body, mind, and soul" - is of course open 24 hours
each day all year round for a quick and direct purchase made from the homely
armchair. "Bog & Mystik" is awarded the e-mark - a safe trade in accordance
with laws on internet trade.
The publishing house
Lemuel Books includes in its main aims to publish esoteric, spiritual, and
Freemason-relevant books in both the narrow and broad genre within the field of
"Men sana in corpore sano" - 'a healthy soul in a healthy body'.
publishing house's dynamic leader and chief-in-charge, Kirsten Puggaard, is
a Freemason (Le droit humain) and has a background in various fields,
including holding an administrative leader post in the business world, and
in addition valuable practical experience about the trade gained from active
participation for the establishment and operation of the Sophia Bookstore
and its publishing business. Sophia Bookstore was later acquired by Lemuel
Books. Everywhere Kirsten Puggaard is known as highly committed, serious and
persistent - and she has for years studied spiritual science and actively
participated in service work in esoteric groups.
At Lemuel Books - now
also running a bookstore with its own published books as well as Danish and
English books of hermetic, kabbalistic, and Masonic character - there will be
current activities, lectures, and various teachers. The place will accommodate a
small library of relevant literature which the public can visit and study.
:: The publishing
house, Lemuel Books' own history: - The quotation of the motto and ideal, "But sana in
corpore sano" - 'a healthy mind in a healthy body', is attributed to the Roman
poet Juvenal and satirist, from ca. 100 AD and continuing at the time of Emperor
Hadrian - and is typical of his beliefs and background. In a period of exile
he both stayed in Alexandria in Egypt and in the then Roman province of
Britannia because of his Christian-Gnostic and Pythagorean thoughts and
The start of the
publishing house was the manifestation of a long-standing wish by its
founder and then director and owner, Kirsten Puggaard. The concept was given
shape during a lunch at the forest restaurant Thor's Mill in the
Marselisborg Forest at Aarhus in June 2006. A few days later the publishing
house was named Lemuel Books and was finally established 17.Aug.2006.
The name Lemuel is in a
Bible dictionary defined as: 'dedicated to the Heavenly Copyright'. King
Lemuel was the son of King Solomon and Sheba Bath (the Bible's "Book of
Proverbs" 31:1-9), but the rabbis identified Lemuel with the wise King
Lemuel Books publishing house presents not least authors like Lars Muhl, Poul
Blak, Søren Hauge, and Erik Ansvang - and its aim of publishing is based on Kirsten
Puggaard's great personal interest in the dissemination of outlooks of the
spiritual sciences and the peace inspiration. For instance, she is joining the
Board of VisdomsNettet (Wisdom network, org.), a private humanitarian and
non-profit foundation, which - likewise the publishing house (but independently,
and separately) - through its activities will raise awareness on the research
and discoveries of spiritual science and the pertinence of spiritual values in
everyday life and the community development.
Within this vital
dimension author Ove von Spaeth, through his cooperation with the publisher
Lemuel Books, is realizing a number of special editions with the presentation of
his continued new explorations; this is also extending a conducive, broader
interaction internationally with a universally interested audience.
Design of the Moses-series: in order to make a number of quite unusual books
- all pieced together of thousands of sources and data - working as an accessible whole and at the
making these books inviting and visually easily readable, were all tasks to be solved by the
and graphic designer of the books - Mr. Ove von Spaeth. In this case thus one and
the same person - a natural advantage for the
Supplementary elements: - in addition to being researcher, writer, and editor
of the Moses-series and many other publications of his own, Ove von Spaeth's first
education was in the
field of graphic design with a special diploma degree from the Graphic Arts
Denmark after several years of design studies. This was followed by many
years as owner of
an independent business enterprise.
Many of Ove von Spaeth's works of design from his enterprise can be seen in
of The Royal Danish National Library and of The Danish Museum of Arts and Design (further details,
One of the Ove von Spaeth Project's main objectives was the broad Internet presentation
of the book-series on the historical Moses. This influenced the distribution far
more than notably.
It also proved necessary
to record many important relations and events in connection with the publication, the reactions, and the effect caused by the results of the writer's
The web-site design of
www.moses-egypt.net, should also communicate to the visitor and reader the special and sublime spirit of Ancient Egypt,
which for instance appears in its arts and architecture - but simultaneously,
importance was paid also to make the best possible navigation for this web-site's immense numbers
of information-articles and archives.
editor and journalist Jacob Ludvigsen: "... From the creation (in
November 1999) of the
web-site, the researcher Ove von Spaeth has made out the concept with his
appreciated, cultivated sense of style and individualism - a cult website - thus having also created history in the Danish world of books, and now a top-important
homepage on the Internet, concerning new orientation of ancient history and
history of religions. ..."
Obviously, the main
objective of the project has caused this website, in many ways, to be
designed and created quite differently than is generally seen in this form of
public service and public relations. Also, it is being updated and extended
During his extensive work regarding the research on Moses and other historical
issues, Ove von Spaeth frequently used through 25 years
The Royal National Library of Denmark and
its reading room with its immensely abundant reference library.
It was essential to his investigations that in The
Royal National Library of Denmark this author had access to one of the
world's greatest collections of older Hebrew texts and literature.
Ove von Spaeth's
re-evaluation of the historical Moses' work and status - presented also through
many special treaties within his books or in seperate publications - is based on interdisciplinary
scientific and cultural historical research. It is connecting archaeological
findings, textual research, and astronomical dating, all being evaluated in
relation to the Bible, the Rabbinical Writings, and various important authors of
Antiquity. Many sources and findings, handed-down accounts, clues and indication
material have, for the first time, been put into the greater context.
Concerning much of the
collected, unusual knowledge we are greatly indebted to the élite scientists
from the early period of researches, who from older vanishing cultures, often at
the last minute, managed to obtain and preserve a special knowledge about man,
his conduct of life and his history. Therefore, many of the early academic works
are priceless. Through this library and its contact with foreign libraries in
Europe and abroad Ove von Spaeth borrowed and copied more than a thousand very
important books, which had been out of print for a very long time, besides old
important articles and documents.
The Royal National Library of Denmark with
its old and most paradisiacal was for a long time in reality Denmark's greatest
open interdisciplinary forum (now expired) where many prominent researchers met.
From here, nor least, our author got inestimable assistance from experts with
a lifelong experience and studies in Egyptology, Hebrew, ancient Greek, history
etc. According to Ove
von Spaeth: "... a significant number of researchers and experts have from
their separate fields of science most kindly contributed to my research work with guidance, criticism,
argumentation, and encouragement. Naturally, these experts are not responsible
for the way in which their information has been used - in any case, however, their
information has always been evaluated with great respect and used most carefully by
me, the very grateful author. ..."
