Libri of Aleister Crowley

The Libri of Aleister Crowley is a list of texts mostly written or adapted by Aleister Crowley. Some are attributed to other authors. The list was intended for students of Crowley's magical order, the A∴A∴.

The publications of the A∴A∴ divide themselves into five classes:

  • Class A consists of books of which may be changed not so much as the style of a letter; that is, they represent the utterance of an Adept entirely beyond the criticism of even the Visible Head of the Organization;
  • Class B consists of books or essays which are the result of ordinary scholarship, enlightened and earnest;
  • Class C consists of matter which is to be regarded rather as suggestive than anything else;
  • Class D consists of the Official Rituals and Instructions;
  • Class E consists of public announcements and broadsheets.

Some publications are composite, and pertain to more than one class. O.T.O. documents are not assigned to any A∴A∴ class.

Famous quotes containing the words aleister crowley and/or crowley:

    There are hardly half a dozen writers in England today who have not sold out to the enemy. Even when their good work has been a success, Mammon grips them and whispers: “More money for more work.”
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    Roughly speaking, any man with energy and enthusiasm ought to be able to bring at least a dozen others round to his opinion in the course of a year no matter how absurd that opinion might be. We see every day in politics, in business, in social life, large masses of people brought to embrace the most revolutionary ideas, sometimes within a few days. It is all a question of getting hold of them in the right way and working on their weak points.
    —Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)
