First Night of the Prophet and his Bride

First Night of the Prophet and his Bride, August 12, in Hermeneuticon at Hermetic Library

This First Night of the Prophet and his Bride is a Thelemic holiday on the anniversary of the first night Aleister Crowley and Rose Edith Kelly spent together when they were married on August 12, 1903 EV.

“37. A feast for the first night of the Prophet and his Bride!”—ii37

“There should be a special feast on the 12th day of August in every year, since it was the marriage of The Beast which made possible the revelation of the New Law. (This is not an Apology for Marriage. Hard cases make Bad Law.)“—New Comment on II.37 in Liber AL vel Legis, Book of the Law
