Alexander Crowley, Anglice Aleister Crowley[1] (natus Edward Alexander Crowley; 12 Octobris 1875; 1 Decembris 1947), fuit occultista, magicus, poeta, pictor, scriptor mythistoriarum, et montanus Anglicus. Rationem Thelematis, religionis et philosophiae novae, reddere debuit, in qua parte se prophetam consideravit, ut homines in Aeon Hori duceret saeculo vicensimo ineunte commissum.

Crowley, in familia divite Fratrum Plimmutensium natus, hanc religionem reiecit ut esotericismum Occidentalem, poesin, et res montanas cognosceret. Cantabrigiae eruditus est, ubi in sententiam bisexualitatis transivit. Sunt biographi qui dicant eum ab administratione intelligentiae Britannica ibi conscriptum fuisse, et speculatorem omnem per vitam mansisse. Anno 1898, se cum esotericum Ordine Hermetico Aurorae Aureae coniunxit, antequam ad Domum Boleskine iuxta Lacum Nessianum migravit et ad Mexicum et India ad discendos usus Hinduisticos et Buddhistics peregrinavit. Rosam Editham Kelly duxit, et iter ad Cairum anno 1904 fecit, ubi Crowley dixit se ab Aiwass, entitate corporis experte, visitatum fuisse, qui ei Librum Legis donaverat, textum sacrum qui pro fundamentis Thelematis fuerit.

Crowley, conatu in Kanchenjungam scansam anno 1905 infelice effecto, Britanniam rediit, ubi anno 1907 ipse et Georgius Caecilius Jones A∴A∴ ordinem Thelemitanum una condiderunt. Postquam nonnullos menses in Algeria degit, Ordini Templi Orientis anno 1912 initiatus est, in quo dux eius rami Britannici factus est, quem ex fidibus Thelematis redintegravit. Bellum Magnum in Civitatibus Foederatis degit, ubi pro administratione intellegentiae Britannica se in lobbiam Germaniae favente insinuare operatus est

Cephaloedium in Sicilia anno 1920 migravit, ut commune Abbatiam Thelematis appellatum administraret. Britannici actorum diurnorum scriptores eum vituperaverunt ob mores dissolutos, et administratio Italica eum anno 1923 expulit. Duobus decenniis sequentibus in Francia, Germania, et Anglia habitavit, ac Thelemati consulere solebat usque ad mortem.

Crowley vivus infamissimus erat, experimenta drogarum oblectationis faciens, individualista, et iudex societatis. Quam ob rem, in diariis popularibus vituperari nomine "pessimus orbis terrarum vir"[2] et Satanista (false) nominari solebat. Ipse persona magni momenti in esotericismo Occidentali et motu contra culturam manet, ac propheta in Thelemate iam accipitur. Anno 2002, comitia a BBC administrata eum aestimaverunt septuagensimum tertium a maximo Britannico.

Notae[recensere | fontem recensere]

  1. "For many years I had loathed being called Alick, partly because of the unpleasant sound and sight of the word, partly because it was the name by which my mother called me. Edward did not seem to suit me and the diminutives Ted or Ned were even less appropriate. Alexander was too long and Sandy suggested tow hair and freckles. I had read in some book or other that the most favourable name for becoming famous was one consisting of a dactyl followed by a spondee, as at the end of a hexameter: like Jeremy Taylor. Aleister Crowley fulfilled these conditions and Aleister is the Gaelic form of Alexander. To adopt it would satisfy my romantic ideals." Crowley 1989:139.
  2. Anglice: "the wickedest man in the world."
