  • Author Dion Fortune

    Dion Fortune (born Violet Mary Firth, 1890–1946), founder of the Society of the Inner Light, is recognized as one of the most luminous ?gures of 20th-century esoteric thought. A proli?c writer, pioneer psychologist, powerful psychic, and spiritualist, she dedicated her life to the revival of the Western Mystery Tradition. She was also a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, whose members included A. E. Waite, Aleister Crowley, and W. B. Yeats.

Traces the ancient Qabalistic, Greek, and Egyptian roots of the Western esoteric systems, and how the initiation tradition has been handed down from adept to neophyte. Dion Fortune reveals both the broad outlines and underlying principles of these systems. Includes a new introduction by Gareth Knight. Index.
