One Truth and One Spirit - Keith Readdy
Subtitled Aleister Crowley's Spiritual Legacy, Keith Readdy's One Truth and One Spirit examines the history of the modern esoteric movement known as Thelema, and the spiritual & institutional legacy of Aleister Crowley. This book is the first serious sociological study of initiated Thelema, and draws on previously unavailable archival material. Tracing the historical development of Thelema, from its inception to the present day, this extensive study does much to shed light on Thelema as both ethical system, philosophy, and magical order, and does much to explicate the tangled and sometimes tumultuous histories of both the Argentum Astrum and the O.T.O. A fascinating work for scholars of esotericism, New Religious Movements and adherents of the Thelemic philosophy alike.
