Books By Dionysius Rogers
A collection of essays on topics concerning the Gnostic Catholic Church as reformed by Aleister Crowley and his successors: organization, doctrine, symbolism, and history. Also includes instruction in a modified form of Ignatian meditation for Thelemites. The ambition of these talks, papers, and prayers is to supply a hearty breakfast of Scientific Religion to those who have drunk and danced all night with Doubt, so that they may have the energy and endurance to do so again.
Raise the Spell: An Arsenal of Thelemic Ceremony Mar 20, 2019
This volume collects more than a dozen original rituals for individuals, groups, and households. All of them have been composed during the last quarter century, and they have been successfully enacted by Thelemites worldwide. Although the ceremonies are consistent with the teachings of the legacy orders of Thelemic Magick (OTO and A.'.A.'.), they are operable without membership or authority in any such society. Ceremonies include ones oriented to the Thelemic liturgical year, original work along the fundamental lines of magick as laid down in traditional canons of Thelemic ritual, and domestic rituals for Thelemites.
These Mysteries are a set of congregational rituals commemorating the attainments of Aleister Crowley, the Prophet of Thelema. Although originally developed for and with the cooperation of local O.T.O. groups, they are suitable for performance by any Thelemites. They can be conducted on the "unholy days" to reflect their historical inspiration, or in a day-long festival which arranges them into a single larger event.
Philosophical, magical, and liturgical materials from a bishop of the Gnostic Catholic Church. As our Past Patriarch Aleister Crowley wrote of the ecclesiastical sacraments, "quite low initiates can do this work." Nevertheless, there are many aspects and features of genuine Thelemic Priesthood that will bear the consideration supplied in this book. Sections include "Thelema, Magick, and Worship," "Priesthood Is Service," "Magisterial Priestcraft," and "Sacramental Priestcraft."
