DAVID MISCAVIGE | A BIOGRAPHY
ENSURING THE PURITY OF SCIENTOLOGY FOR ALL TIME
As ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, Mr. Miscavige has devoted himself to making the Scripture of the Scientology religion accessible to all. For a quarter century, he ceaselessly advanced L. Ron Hubbard’s intention to provide the writings and lectures on Dianetics and Scientology to all people of Earth, in all languages. With Mr. Hubbard’s works on the mind and spirit comprising 18 million written words and 2,500 recorded lectures, the codification, restoration, translation and publishing of these works was daunting. But by the close of 2009, the 25-year undertaking to restore all Dianetics and Scientology materials was completed and for the first time the entire body of Scientology Scripture is available in the exact chronology in which the material was originally delivered by Mr. Hubbard.
The backdrop against which this “Golden Age of Knowledge” unfolded is the Materials Guide Chart, a comprehensive guide long advised by L. Ron Hubbard and brought to life by Mr. Miscavige. It pictorially represents a chronology of Mr. Hubbard’s written and recorded materials and their interrelationships. In full, the Golden Age of Knowledge constitutes the single most sustained program in Scientology history to recover, restore and verify the Scientology Scripture. Included were projects to locate all extant manuscripts and recorded lectures by L. Ron Hubbard—which in turn necessitated scouring every locale where he wrote or lectured. A two-million-man-hour project to ensure the purity of the materials further included correcting transcription errors in dictated manuscripts, removing editorial additions and alterations, identifying incorrect sequences and missing text and verifying every page as complete, correct and true to Source.
Thereafter and in sequence: With the launch of the Golden Age of Knowledge in 2005 came the Congress Lectures, L. Ron Hubbard’s special events presenting his announcements of each new milestone breakthrough in the research and development of Dianetics and Scientology.
In June 2007 came the release that would “change the world of Scientology forever”: Mr. Miscavige’s presentation of the fully restored Basics, comprising L. Ron Hubbard’s 18 books and 280 lectures at the core of the Scientology religion. With more than 70 million copies of the Basics books and lectures read and listened to since 2007, this achievement alone has created a renaissance in the religion.
At the close of 2009 came the historic announcement of the Golden Age of Knowledge Complete with the release of L. Ron Hubbard’s Professional and Advanced Clinical Course Lectures. This body of work totals more than 1,000 lectures and 500 written issues, and provides a day-to-day record of Mr. Hubbard’s path of discovery in Dianetics and Scientology.
