Peter-Robert Koenig’s website about the O.T.O. phenomenon

This website is not really news, but for those of you who are interested in Thelema and the O.T.O. and have not yet discovered it, it is a real MUST!

Under the title “The Ordo Templi Orientis Phenomenon – A Research Project” Swiss author Peter-Robert Koenig brings us the most extensive collection of documents, historical facts, images, names etc. on Thelemic history online that I know about. From Crowley to Rudolf Steiner, Theodor Reuss, Karl Germer and Gregor Gregorius – they are all there. As Koenig points out himself, this is a documentation of the behaviour of the participant parties.

Here is a definition by the author Koenig himself: A detailed historical field research on the psycho-sociology of a modern secret society called Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). All about modern day occultism and money; so-called Templars and falsification of history; Gnostics in the kitchen and bedrooms and their expanded consciousness; Illuminati and conspiracy; NeuRosicrucians; religious liberty and sexmagick; their relation with Voodoo and Freemasonry; rituals, correspondences, books and articles.

When you go on this site, do take your time. It is not structured like most modern websites would be, so you will need some time to search around. But what a massive collection, which will keep you busy for many hours without ever getting boring!

The Gates of Saturn as paperback

Remember my review of Peter Mark Adam’s great book about the Sola-Busca tarocchi from Episode 3? Well, due to the huge success of this book the publisher, Scarlet Imprint, have decided to do something which does not happen so often there: They have now issued a paperback version of this book in their “Bibliothèque Rouge” edition, which will make this important work available to more readers and interested occultists. Once again: I find this a must read! You can buy both versions here.

Also stay tuned on Scarlet Imprint’s website for the release of the Sola-Busca tarocchi CARDS! If they can keep the print quality they reached in the hardcover edition of “The Game of Saturn” – and I am sure they can – this can be a spectacular object for collectors of Tarot decks. Scarlet Imprint announced two days ago that they will soon start to take pre-orders, so be aware!

NEWS ON JULY 17: Pre-orders for the Sola-Busca tarocchi cards will open on August 1st.
