Aleister Crowley

Edward Alexander Crowley (1875 October 12 - 1947 December 1) was a Satanist who was nicknamed “The Great Beast”. As a young man, born into a wealthy upper class British family, he became an influential member of the esoteric Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. His motto within this Order was “Perdurabo”, which is Latin for “I will endure to the end”. Next, he founded the religious “philosophy” of Thelema (a Greek word meaning “Will”), and he became the leader of an occult society named the “Ordo Templi Orientis” (O.T.O.), which is Latin for “Order of the Oriental Temple”.

Crowley is widely thought of as the most influential occultist of all time. Most people seem to ignore that is was Black Occultism that he practiced. Allegedly, he was also a spy for the British government (MI6).
