Lucifer Over Luxor (Albion Calling)

This from Ethan Foyle White’s personal blog, Albion Calling. Follow the link to a fascinating article… “Lucifer Over Luxor: Archaeology, Egyptology, and Occultism in Kenneth Anger’s Magick Lantern Cycle” has just appeared in the academic journal Present Pasts. The article is based on a paper which I presented at the “Monstrous Antiquities: Archaeology and the Uncanny” conference, held at University College London’s Institute of Archaeology back in November 2013. One of the primary reasons why I chose to submit the manuscript to this particular journal was because it’s open access, and thus all of its articles can be read online for free (or downloaded as a PDF – also for free!), which is a massive benefit in a world where most academic publications are locked behind paywalls.
