Aleister Crowley – Summoning the Demon

Born to a wealthy British family and the son of a preacher, Aleister Crowley, whom his mother called ‘The Beast’, became infamous later in life for his influence on the occult. Although Crowley was not, according to many religious scholars, a Satanist, his exploration of ancient Egyptian deities and adopting Baphomet’s name in a mystical rite in Berlin earned him a reputation for outlandishness and subversion. In addition to his published works on the occult, after his death in 1947 Crowley’s legacy extended into the Counter-Culture of the 1960s and the many secret societies that still dominate today.
