David Beth - Aleister Crowley and the Dawn of Aiwass

Written by lashtal. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

With 2 print runs of his book Voudon Gnosis selling out, and through his past leadership of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua and La Couleuvre Noire, and current role with La Société Voudon Gnostique, David Beth has gained the reputation as the spearhead of the revival of Esoteric Voudon. Perhaps less known about him is the fact that he has also studied numerous occult systems throughout the world for the last 20 years. This includes extensive research and practice of Thelemic esoteric principles.

As a gift to the Thelemic community for their inspiration and their aid in research and ideas in the past, David has made available a revised version of his essay Aleister Crowley and the Dawn of Aiwass: A Gnostic Investigation. In it, he explores the transmissions of the "Aiwass Current" and how they can be used in a personal system of Gnostic sorcery. David considers this one of his finest non-Voudon related writings and invites conversation and feedback on it.


Walk Like An Egyptian

Written by Astaroth. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

My article, Walk Like An Egyptian: Egypt as Authority in Aleister Crowley's Reception of The Book of the Law, has been accepted by The Pomegranate: International Journal of Pagan Studies and is currently in press and due out very soon. The reference is The Pomegranate 12.2 (2010) pp. 20-47. I will link to the journal issue as soon as it appears on the web and if you want to access the article you'll need either a subscription to the journal, to pay for access to the article, or academic library access or a friend with academic library access (which means it'll be free).


'Crowley' Blu-Ray

Written by lashtal. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

Regular visitors to this site will know that I'm fond of Simon Callow's performance as a (kind of) reincarnated Aleister Crowley in Chemical Wedding, also known as Crowley in the US.

The movie will be released on Blu-ray on 16 November from Starz/Anchor Bay.


'The Magician' on US Cable TV

Written by lashtal. Posted in Aleister Crowley.

Thanks to HB…

There is a rare cable TV screening of the 1926 MGM Rex Ingram silent film The Magician: Sunday at midnight on Turner Classic Movies (US cable). So set your Tivos or set top recorders. I'm not sure about scheduling and coverage outside the USA but it is worth checking.

This is a very difficult film to see otherwise…
