Rodney Orpheus has here provided a wide-ranging introduction to liturgical science for 21st-century magicians, as well as collecting valuable traditional and original materials for the purposes of consummating group operations of magick. The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley highlights the aims and innovations of the Great Beast in the field of group ceremony, and includes rituals by Crowley never previously available in book form. It should be valuable to Thelemites both within and outside of formal initiatory societies, and to students of the occult in general.
With this book, Rodney Orpheus has produced the most significant Thelemic book written this century. The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley adds a key missing fragment to the corpus of Crowley’s Thelemic rituals – a coherent set of group rituals which enhance personal practices and expand effective magical interaction between practitioners. Drawing on unpublished Crowley material, the author has vitalised the rituals with the spirit of Thelemic practice, rather than slavishly following standard formulae. This book is going to end up being standard reading for numerous groups,and is sure to cause a stir, and may even start a revolution.
– David Rankine, author of The Goetia of Dr. Rudd, The Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet, etc.
“This book is all purple and pleasure, a revelation of fragments of rituals by Aleister Crowley which were half concealed, expounding the mantras and the spells and propagating the essence of Thelema. Rodney Orpheus has provided an original and enchanting work for the twenty-first century which opens the gates to the palace and offers a pathway to the mysteries hidden therein. The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley is sure to become a modern classic.”
-Sorita D’Este, author of Practical Qabalah Magick & Hekate Liminal Rites
Another endorsement, this time from eminent Crowley authority Richard Kaczynski:
In addition to gifting us with a long-needed anthology of Aleister Crowley’s group rituals, Rodney Orpheus’ “Grimoire,” with its inclusion of rituals *inspired* by Crowley, is also a course on how to take older texts and adapt them to one’s needs. The cookbook-style “list of ingredients and preparation time” that precedes each ceremony handily gives aspiring ritualists a heads up on how many Fratres or Sorores are needed, how much memorization is required, and how complex the ritual equipment and staging is. Eminently readable and (most importantly) *usable*, “The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley” will keep many a magical group busy for years to come.
