The Center for Enochian Studies, special supplement

Preface

This month The Center for Enochian Studies in cooperation with the crew at Thelema Lodge begins it third annual Anniversary Reading of Aleister Crowley's Liber CDXVIII, known generally as The Vision and The Voice. As a supplement to what in the past has been one of our most Magikally successful celebrations, we have provided our readership with an extract from the introduction to the difficult to obtain Barstow edition. This intro, originally written by the late Israel Regardie, was heavily edited for the Sangraal edition. We have restored the parts deleted (probably for reasons of 'Magikal Safety'), and transliterated the Angelic passages into the Enochian script. Our method for transcription is in accordance with the method used by Crowley in his own copy of the Angelic Keys, i.e. from left to right; this differs from Dee's method of right to left which we generally employ, though Dee himself is not consistent in this matter. {Note to web edition -- although this direction is used in the table below, the version of the Call given in Enochian characters has here been rendered right to left}

THE CALL OR KEY OF THE THIRTY AETHYRS

 

O Ye Heavens which dwell in the first Aire3, ye are mighty in the parts of the Earth, and execute therein the Judgment of the Highest! Unto you it is said: Behold the Face of your God, the beginning of Comfort, whose eyes ate the brightness of the Heavens, which provided you for the Government of the Earth, and her unspeakable variety, furnishing you with the power of understanding to dispose of all things according to the Foresight of Him that Sitteth on the Holy Throne4, and rose up in the Beginning, saying: The Earth, let her be governed by her parts, and let there be Division in her, that the glory of her may be always ecstasy and imitation of orgasm. Her course, let it run with the Heavens; and as an handmaid let her serve them. One season, let it confound another, and let there be no creature upon or within her the same. All her members, let them differ in their qualities, and let there be no one Creature equal with another. The reasonable Creatures of the Earth, and Men, let them vex and weed out one another; and their dwelling-places, let them forget their Names. The work of man and his pomp, let them be defaced. His building, let it be a Cave for the Beast of the Field! Confound her understanding with darkness! For why? It repenteth me concerning the Virgin and the Man. One while let her be known, and another while a stranger: because she is the bed of an Harlot, and the dwelling-place of him that is fallen.
O ye Heavens arise! The lower heavens beneath you, let them serve you! Govern those that govern! Cast down such as fall. Bring forth with those that increase, and destroy the rotten. No place let it remain in one number. Add an diminish until the stars be numbered. Arise! Move! and appear before the Covenant of His mouth, which He hath sworn unto us in His Justice. Open the Mysteries of your Creation, and make us partakers of THE UNDEFILED KNOWLEDGE.

Postscript

As an epilogue to this first of two installments, our readers should know that the CES itself was heavily disrupted in the, by now infamous, Thelema Lodge raid. The library facility which serves as our base was ransacked by police in a futile attempt to discover nonexistent evidence of felonious activities. Valuable books, files, and manuscript copy was thrown in a great heap on the floor and even as I write this morass has yet to be fully sorted out.

Several members of our research staff were among those arrested and held on completely bogus charges. I am reminded of the treatment received by both Dee and Kelly at various times in their lives, and the destruction and looting of a great portion of Dee's library at Mortlake for frighteningly similar reasons.

These and other circumstances have led to the temporary suspension of our manuscript transcription. The center itself is moving to a larger room which we hope will facilitate better research in the future, but will incur some temporary inconveniences and increased cost. To help in this and other efforts at Thelema Lodge we are offering a limited issue facsimile (156 stamped and numbered copies) of the Barstow edition Vision and Voice. These will sell for $30.00 each and be spiral bound as was the original. Checks made out to CASH should be sent with your requests c/o Thelema Lodge at the Berkeley P.O. box number found elsewhere in this publication. {Note to Web edition: This offer is no longer available} We thank all our supporters and hope to resume normal transmissions by the beginning of the new vulgar year.

1.     Or other Aire as may be willed.
2.     This name may be appropriately varied with the Aire.
3.     Or other Aire as may be willed.
4.     This name may be appropriately varied with the Aire.
