Gerald Enrique del Campo, poet, musician, photographer, magician, philosopher, painter, writer, and lecturer on occult and religious topics was born in Cordoba, Argentina on January 14, 1960.
From 1982 till 1986, he studied Enochian Magick with David Kennedy, Israel Regardie's personal secretary.
In 1987 he joined Ordo Templi Orientis, where he eventually became Master of RPSTOVAL Oasis. Later he served that Order in the capacity of Quartermaster and volunteered to serve an eleven year term with the OTO's Electoral College.
From 1988 until 1990 he was a member of the College of Thelema and studied under Phyllis Seckler. In 1989, he became a founding member of the Temple of Thelema. In that same year he joined Fraternitas Lux Occulta and studied under Paul Clark.

On January 1, 2003 he was consecrated Bishop and received Apostolic Succession and adopted the name Tau Apollonius. On that same occassion he founded the Thelemic Gnostic Church of Alexandria.
As of today, Gerald del Campo has published two books. New Aeon Magick: Thelema Without Tears (Luxor Press Inc; 2nd Rev&En edition June 1, 2000), and New Aeon English Qabalah Revealed (Luxor Press Inc 2003).
New Aeon Magick is unique, in that rather than recycling already published material, it is focused on Thelema as it had manifested in his life at the time. It is also an excellent Hermetic Qabalah and comparative mythology source.
New Aeon English Qabalah Revealed is a primer on the New Aeon English Qabalah and a system of gematria referred to as Cipher 6. In this book, del Campo shows the relationship between the English letters and some very important passages of The Book of the Law.
Mr. del Campo is a prolific writer who is concerned with the positive and responsible promulgation of the Law of Thelema. Many of his writings have been translated into various languages and some have become either recommended or required reading at various universities around the world.
