mountaineer, and possibly the main passionately liberated guy in
Victorian London. His genuine devotion, even though, is magic...and the
search for his personal soul.
An notorious fourteenth century Arabic publication of magic survives the
centuries to spawn the formation of a hidden society of magicians in
London. The Order is led through occult pupil MacGregor Mathers and his
wife Moina, who declare to be involved with mystery masters that give
them ever-increasing magical wisdom and tool. For a number of years
the Order grows, drawing on new contributors from the giants of British
commerce, artwork, and literature.
Suddenly, on the peak of the Order's effect, MacGregor and Moina
appear to lose touch with the key masters. They flow to Paris and
ignore the Order's plea for extra teachings and better initiations. The
London hotel threatens to sever ties with them and make magical
contact with the key masters themselves. 5 very well-known members
lead the revolt:
*the poet William Butler Yeats
*the playwright Maude Gonne
*Bram Stoker, writer of Dracula
*Florence Farr, the main acclaimed actress of her day
*and one of many wealthiest girls on this planet, tea heiress Annie Horniman.
Crowley naively joins the Order initially of the revolt.
Blinded via his excessive religious aspirations, he's not simply drawn
into the clash, yet unwittingly turns into the catalyst that brings
about their destruction.
