The Moribund Portal - Richard Gavin
Here is a book dedicated to the occult lore of the hangman's noose and the gallows tree. The author draws upon folklore, spiritism, and occult philosophy, and argues that the gallows' potencies owes much to the fact that it is a place where the people die, and die violently. At the hangman's gallows, the incarnate world meets the land of the dead. In this book, subtitled 'Spectral Resonance and the Numen of the Gallows,' Richard Gavin creates a sinister ambiance of ancient sorcery. The book is aimed at readers who practice Traditional Witchcraft, but for all readers, it offering a haunting glimpse into the magic of crossing-places, where the veil between the worlds is thinned, where spectral resonances may be perceived.
