IDS did her best to translate the French article into English but there are language mistakes. Only the original article in French is perfectly reliable. So if you have any doubt, check.

Addendum on April 30 : IDS made some language corrections. About the book of Leon Surette, particularly. We had forgotten a negation in one of our sentences about this book. Do not hesitate to write at to correct other English mistakes. 

The Eleison Comment n°406 "Culture matters" recommending the study of this dangerous occultist is an opportunity to provide further information on the Golden Dawn. We will study other celebrities of the literary or educational world.
It is also an opportunity to discover Bishop Gaume thesis on the true Catholic culture. The vision of culture defended by Bishop Gaume is poles apart from Bishop Williamson's vision. We chose to follow Mgr Gaume because his ideas are pure, clear, pious, uncompromising, logical.
Catholics are, thanks to the sanctifying grace, the temple of God. They should therefore not sully their soul by contact with works imbued with pagan culture or even worse, with Gnostic works, that is to say Satanic.
At the end of the article, we ask Bishop Williamson some concrete actions for the good of souls.

Eleison Comment n°406 :

Culture Matters!
Come listen to Dr White, if still you can, To relate the true Faith truly to modern man.
From Friday evening, May 1st, to Sunday mid-day, May 3rd, there will be held here in Queen of Martyrs House, Broadstairs, another seminar by Dr. David White, as last year on Charles Dickens, so this year on T.S. Eliot (1888–1965), another giant of English literature with a direct connection to this corner of England. It was in an open-air pavilion overlooking Margate beach about five miles north of Broadstairs that between October and November of 1921 the world famous Anglo-American poet broke a writing-block and composed some 50 lines of the third of five parts of the most influential poem of the 20th century, at any rate in the English language,The Wasteland (1922).

The poem is a brilliant portrait of the nothingness in men’s hearts and minds in the wake of World War I (1914–1918). In The Wasteland Eliot forged a new fragmentary way of writing poetry that captured the broken spiritual condition of modern man. By his broad and deep grasp of the artistic masterpieces from the past, notably Dante and Shakespeare, Eliot was able to give shape to the spiritual poverty of today. For instance in the six lines of the peom which are clearly connected to Margate, one of three working-class girls tells how she gave away her honour, for nothing, and to highlight the emptiness of the lives of all three maidens, their words are framed within fragments from the song of the three Rhine maidens who open and close the cosmic vision of Wagner’s epic Ring of the Nibelungs.

Emptiness and nothingness. Why on earth should Catholics bother with such depressing authors? Salvation is by Our Lord Jesus Christ, not by culture, especially not by nihilistic culture. A particular answer concerns T S Eliot. A general answer concerns all “culture,” defined as those stories, pictures and music with which all men of all ages cannot help furnishing and forming th eir hearts and minds.

As for T S Eliot, he himself soon dismissed The Wasteland as “rhythmic grumbling,” and a few years later he became a member of the Church of England. He had given brilliant expression to modern nothingness, but he did not wallow in it. He went on to write a number of plays and especially the long poem of the Four Quartets, which are by no means nihilistic, and about which Dr White, who loves Eliot, will also be talking in Broadstairs in a few days’ time. Having grappled honestly with the problem, Eliot came up with no ostrich solution, like countless Catholics that have fallen for Vatican II.

For indeed culture in general is to religion (or irreligion) like the suburbs of a city are to the city centre. And just as a military general with the task of defending a city would be most foolish to leave the suburbs to be occupied by the enemy, so any Catholic concerned for his religion cannot be indifferent to the stories, pictures and musi c which are moulding the souls all around him. Of course religion (or irreligion) is central to a man’s life, compared with which “culture” is peripheral, because men’s culture is, deep down, a spin-off from their relation with their God. Nevertheless culture and religion interact. For instance, were so many Catholics not under the spell of “The Sound of Music,” would they so easily have fallen for Vatican II? Or had the present leaders of the Society of St Pius X, by contrasting Catholic culture and modern anti-culture, grasped the depth of the modern problem, would they be now so intent on getting back under the perpetrators of Vatican II? Culture can matter like Heaven and Hell!

Kyrie eleison.

Commentary of With the Immaculate :
The book Freemasonry and secret societies: the hidden side of history (by Epiphanius, editions of Courrier de Rome) which you can order here (book in French language) teaches p.169 and footnote n°362 p.170 that Thomas Stearns Eliot , praised by Williamson in his Commentary Eleison No. 406, is a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (1) and a member of a Dionysian cult called the Children of the Sun. In other words, a Satanist ...

Here are some excerpts from the book by Epiphanius :

Pages 164 -169:

"The" Golden Dawn ":

Virulent offshoot of the Rosicrucian tree, the "Hermetic Brotherhood of the Golden Dawn" was born in 1887 in Keighley town near Manchester, stating by the mouth of its founders its willingness to practice more effectively an active life of magic in fidelity to the ideals taught by the Rosicrucians of the seventeenth century (350 - see note 2). In 1888 the first temple of the "Golden Dawn" was formed in London under the name of Isis-Urania. The cult of "Isis" was practiced . It was "organized on the basis of the book" Isis Unveiled" that the Russian occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky had written in 1877. In this book, the author appealed to the British aristocracy to organize itself in a priestly cult of Isis "(351 - cf. note 3). [...]

"The influence of the Golden Dawn on European affairs was very important: it suffices to say that some authors consider that it was "the seed of Nazism" and that from its ranks have come out several historical leaders of the movement (361 - see note 4) We have an additional proof of it if we note the paradoxical fact, reported by Gerson, of a Gestapo ruthlessly persecuting the lower Masonic Lodges and which never made a single search in the temple of the Golden Dawn situated in the heart of Berlin; 

Crowley [ndlr : well-known satanic magus] himself, dying of drugs in 1947, yet showed deep sympathy for Sir Oswald Mosley member of the Fabian Society and head of what was then the British fascist party. The role of the Golden Dawn in the creation and distribution of the drug culture, which is now at its peak, was more significant. From their ranks came Aldous Huxley, brother of Sir Julian, first Director General of UNESCO, and nephew of Thomas Huxley, one of the founders of the Round Table. Aldous Huxley, with his brother Julian, had HG Wells as a tutor in Oxford. He was also a member of the Golden Dawn, who introduced Aldous Huxley to Aleister Crowley. Meanwhile Aldous had been initiated into the "Children of the Sun" Dionysian sect to which belonged the sons of the elite of the British Round Table (362 [see next paragraph]). Aleister Crowley introduced him to the Golden Dawn in 1929 and introduced him to psychedelic drugs, so that at the end of the 30s, Huxley, in collaboration with Christopher Isherwood, Thomas Mann and his daughter Elisabeth Mann-Borghese born in 1918, laid the foundations of what would be the culture of LSD, through the cult of Isis. (...) "

Here's what the note n°362 p. 169 says (see above in underlined bold): "See Martin Green, "Children of the Sun: a Narrative of Decadence in England After 1918", New York Basic Books Inc., 1976. The sect had among its members Thomas S. Eliot, WH Anden, Oswald Mosley and DH Lawrence, Aldous Huxley's homosexual lover. "

"Among the prominent members of the Golden Dawn can be noted:

Israel Regardie (1907-1985), Jewish English author in 1937 of the book The Golden Dawn (363 - see note 5), sum of authentic Kabbalistic theurgy;

Florence Farr, a close friend of Bernard Shaw;

Gerald Kelly, president of the Royal Academy;

Arthur Edward Waite, Rosicrucians specialist, Mason founder of the "Fellowship of the Rosy Cross" and director of an "inside" top secret Rosicrucian Order, called "Ordo Sanctissimus Rosae Crucis and Aureae" whose total members number could not exceed the half dozen (364);

poets like Thomas S. Eliot and William Butler Yeats, Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula ; Herbert G. Wells, promoter of the programs of High Finance globalization, to which he was closely connected;

Arthur Machen, the English writer in respect of which the only realities which counted were holiness and witchcraft, while the one who did not belong to one of those two categories was, for him, a "negligible";

Rudolph Hess - the top Nazi official - and Karl Haushofer, the theorist of the "living space" Germanic, and his son Albrecht [...] "

T.S Eliot

Fascism - Nazism - Freemasonry - Satanism

Note that Fascism and Nazism have links with the occult and Freemasonry. Thomas Stearns Eliot, like his occultist friend Ezra Pound, liked Mussolini. Eliot also supported Charles Maurras when sentenced by Rome. He was considered as a royalist. And yet, despite his support for Maurras and  his consideration for Mussolini, TS Eliot is acclaimed by the world! If we consult Wikipedia, we see that TS Eliot was heaped with honors:

- Order of Merit (awarded by King George VI (United Kingdom), 1948)[96]

- Nobel Prize in Literature "for his outstanding, pioneer contribution to present-day poetry" (Stockholm, 1948)[5]
- Officier de la Legion d'Honneur (1951)
- Hanseatic Goethe Prize (Hamburg, 1955)
- Dante Medal (Florence, 1959)
- Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (1960)
Presidential Medal of Freedom (1964)
- Thirteen honorary doctorates (including Oxford, Cambridge, the Sorbonne, and Harvard)
- Tony Award in 1950 for Best Play: The Broadway production of The Cocktail Party
- Two posthumous Tony Awards (1983) for his poems used in the musical Cats
- Eliot College of the University of Kent, England, named after him
- Celebrated on commemorative postage stamps
- A star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame

Not only Freemasons heaped this poet with honors but they also created a prize bearing his name: the TS Eliot prize. The Masonic leftist newspaper The New York Times dedicated to him a laudatory page. This poet is published and studied everywhere. What is the reason for the infatuation of Freemasonry for someone politically incorrect? The reason is that he belonged to the Golden Dawn and they know very well that he is one of them. This is not because someone is sympathetic to Mussolini that he is not a Freemason. There is a whole current of Masonic "far right". This is further proof that only the doctrine of the Church gives the true political solution. Let us remind ourselves that Nazism was condemned by the Church (cf. Pius XI Mit brennender Sorge). The book Freemasonry and secret societies: the hidden side of history explains that Hilter was funded by the Jewish high finance. It gives names and proves. Thus, Freemasonry has very different faces, to infiltrate the whole political spectrum. (It is the same in the religious, economic, cultural and scientific domains...)

According to the words of Bishop Williamson, Thomas Stearns Eliot is very useful "To relate the true Faith truly to modern man", he says verbatim in his Eleison Comment. When you read Eliot, you discover a depressing, strange, gibberish text... All Eliot specialists say that his poems must be interpreted and have a hidden meaning. Bishop Williamson has presented in his Eleison Comment the official interpretation of the texts. He did not mention the hidden meaning, which is impregnated with Gnosticism and Satanism. He wants, like the current modern cultural trend, to make our Catholic faithful go into raptures over morbid, unhealthy, hermetic poems which are not even written in plain English. T.S. Eliot perfectly mastered the language and was highly intelligent ... But he put his talent to the service of evil. It is true that he was rightist ... But what Right! A demonic Right.

It is said on the blog Respice stellam that the seminar program of formation (or rather deformation) to be proposed from 1 to 3 May 2015 will include the study of the life of Thomas Stearns Eliot. But this aspect of the poet's biography will certainly not taught by Dr. White. We prefer also specify another thing that will probably be also forgotten or ignored (?) by Dr. White: One of the best friends of Thomas Stearns Eliot was called Ezra Pound. This is Ezra Pound who helped TS Eliot to enter the world of literature. But Ezra Pound who was later affected by "insanity" or rather demonic possession(?), was closely linked with the satanist Helena Blavatsky (6), founder of the sect of Theosophy, which also interested TS Eliot a lot: On Oct. 24 1927, he wanted to offer his friend John Gould Fletcher two books of the famous High Freemason René Guénon (7). One of them was entirely devoted to Theosophy. The titles were: Introduction to the general study of Hindu doctrines and Theosophy. Like Guénon, T.S. Eliot was also passionate about Eastern religions, which find many echoes in the works that Bishop Williamson wants to propose to the study of the faithful ...

Ezra Pound, one of the best friends of Thomas Stearns Eliot. A man in regular contact with several occultists. One of them was the Satanist Helena Blavatsky. See for example the book by Leon Surette (this book does not seem on our side but it represents a fairly thorough and interesting research, according to the excerpts we have read): The birth of modernism: Ezra Pound, TS Eliot, W. B Yeats and the occult.

Chapter 2 of this book Modernist Alchemy: Poetry and the Occult by Timothy Materer is entitled Ezra Pound as Magus. It is a magician who assisted T.S. Eliot in his task. During the writing of The Waste Land, there has been a close correspondence between both of them. Ezra Pound directed everything. The writings of Jessie Weston, theosophical writer, are mentioned several times in the footnotes of The Waste Land. (see ch. 3 and 4 of Leon Surette's book about this).

- The Waste Lands (an "s" was added) was chosen as the title of an album of a Satanist "heavy metal" group, Venom.

- The French progressive metal band Hord makes  widely tribute to the poet in its concept albums, The Waste Land (2010) and The Book of Eliot (April 2013). (source wikipedia)

The book of Eliot

Letter from Thomas Stearns Eliot to his friend John Gould Fletcher:

Examples of hidden and / or unhealthy allusions in the works of TS Eliot.

1. As in all demonic works, we notice T.S. Eliot's predilection for the theme of death, skeletons. The human skull is ubiquitous in Freemasonry and Satanism (eg the skull and bones, initiation ceremonies):

In French, Eliot's excerpts can be found at the esoteric section of this blog.

Here is the English version :

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

2. Hermetism
Here is an excerpt of the four quartets. Some of our readers may understand the esoteric message that hides in it. We did not have time to do some research on this extract ... What we want at the moment, it is to show the hermeticism, the unhealthy appearance, and the deconstruction of this gibberish language. This poet can in no way fortify souls neither help us to understand the crisis of the Church:

"At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless; 
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
I can only say, there we have been: but I cannot say where.
And I cannot say, how long, for that is to place it in time.
Yet the enchainment of past and future
Woven in the weakness of the changing body,
Protects mankind from heaven and damnation
Which flesh cannot endure.
Time past and time future
Allow but a little consciousness.
To be conscious is not to be in time
Not here the darkness, in this twittering world.
Descend lower, descend only
Into the world of perpetual solitude,
World not world, but that which is not world,
Internal darkness, deprivation
And destitution of all property,
Dessication of the world of sense,
Evacuation of the world of fancy,
Inoperancy of the world of spirit;
This is the one way, and the other
Is the same, not in movement
But abstention from movememnt; while the world moves
In appetency, on its metalled ways
Of time past and time future.
" (...) the light is still 
At the still point of the turning world."

3. appearance of mysticism
As all Freemasons who like, for example, the Gospel of St. John's prologue, to which they give a very different meaning as defined by the Church, there are religious words in Eliot's works. He likes to use quotations from John of the Cross. Eliot is often  officially presented as a soul in need of mysticism, seeking the truth, the absolute. In fact, the Gnostic mindset reverses everything and the meaning that Eliot wanted to give is satanic. Let us make no mistake: if a member of the Golden Dawn and of the Children of the Sun uses these words, it is certainly not to seek the true God.

Here is an extract of the four quartets inspired by John of the Cross:

To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstacy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.

Examples of false "eliotan""mysticism" :

Men's curiosity searches past and future
And clings to that dimension. But to apprehend
The point of intersection of the timeless
With time, is an occupation for the saint—
No occupation either, but something given
And taken, in a lifetime's death in love,
Ardour and selflessness and self-surrender.

The only hope, or else despair
Lies in the choice of pyre of pyre-
To be redeemed from fire by fire.
Who then devised the torment? Love.
Love is the unfamiliar Name
Behind the hands that wove
The intolerable shirt of flame
Which human power cannot remove.
We only live, only suspire
Consumed by either fire or fire.

With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this Calling
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;

The constant renewal is a known idea of gnosis. This idea is symbolized by the Ouroboros present on the Declaration of Human Rights, in many religions and Satanism. We do not know to what "unknown door" Eliot refers. But it is certainly not Christ who acts in full light and who is well known.

In this picture, the ouroboros is above the Phrygian cap. Note also the triangle with the eye in the center.

Here is an excerpt of the notes of the book Modernist Alchemy: Poetry and the Occult. P. 187 note 40, we see the ouroboros in Helena Blavatsky.


And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

There. TS Eliot gives the solution to all our problems: 
"all shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.."

We do not know to what degree you have to be initiated to understand this, but Eliot's ideas appeal to rockers, who obviously have some understanding on them. The rose is a symbol widely used in Freemasonry ... It symbolizes the woman, for the Rosicrucians. 

4. The tarot in Eliot

Esoteric Symbols: The Tarot in Yeats, Eliot, and Kafka

Tarot, a satanist card game, is very present in Eliot, Yeats and Kafka, to the point that a book was written about it. A man hanging upside down by one foot is one of the cards. This is one of the symbols you can find in The Waste Land. Eliot made it clear that he was referring to the hanged God of Fraser. This is an allusion to the cult of Odin. (see The Golden Bough by Fraser:  this book caused a scandal and some parts had to be weeded out to be published.) 

Here's a screenshot taken from the book Esoteric symbols: the Tarot in Yeats, Eliot and Kafka.

The hanged man, 
card of the tarot

True culture

Let us leave now the Masonic "cultural" garbage and let us seek, with the help of God, what the real culture is. How to know what real culture is? The definition of Knowledge, gift of the Holy Ghost, will help us.

What is Knowledge?
Knowledge is a gift enabling us to estimate created things at their proper worth, and to learn how to use them rightly and to direct them to our last end, which is God. 

Man is created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul. And the other things on the face of the earth are created for man and that they may help him in prosecuting the end for which he is created.

Now let us apply these ideas to culture. The good culture is the one which elevates the soul and leads it to God. All that leads to God by good and virtuous means is good. It is therefore necessary that culture does not incite people to make sins or to turn away from truth. It must give the soul aspirations of purity, love of beauty, truth, goodness. All that leads to error or sin should be avoided.


To go and listen false scholarly dissertations on an occultist leads to sin. We must therefore shun the seminar organized by Bishop Williamson, if he decides to keep it on that theme. His friend Dr. White seems suspicious. It would be better that this man moves away definitively from the Resistance. Indeed, it is hard to imagine that he is innocent and ignorant to this point, with his level of erudition. There is no need to do large studies to know that Eliot is unhealthy. This "ignorance" is even more suspiscious because White has prepared a study of the life of T.S. Eliot. Eliot's membership to the Golden Dawn and the Children of the Sun is not very known, but his links with the occult are known. His links with Ezra Pound are very well known. Everyone knows this is Ezra Pound who brought Eliot to the literary fore. And the links between Ezra Pound and occultism are not secret. The list of all the books published on the subject is quite substantial.

If Bishop Williamson wants to reassure us, it would be better from now on, not to get Dr White mixed up in his business. We hope this man will never teach anything more to the faithful of the Resistance. We also hope Bishop Williamson will stop to offer us a culture which is not really Catholic. Dickens also (seminar of last year) is not what it more urgent to fight against the crisis of the Church. We have not studied Dickens, but we would not be surprised if there were problems. This kind of literary study is superficial, worldly, encourages the faithful to take an interest in vanities. It is not the role of a bishop to encourage us to do that. The one who should set an example instead encourages musing on unnecessary things. This leads to lukewarmness.

(1) D'autres temples de la Golden Dawn furent construits à Bradford (temple d'Horus), à Edimbourg (temple de Amon-Ra) et en 1894 à Paris (temple d'Ahatoor). La Société comprenait trois Ordres et onze degrés : le premier appelé « Golden Dawn in the Outer » (= à l'Extérieur), le cercle le moins ésotérique, le plus extérieur, articulé en cinq grades inférieurs ; le second Ordre « de la Rose Rouge et de la Croix d'Or » avec trois grades intermédiaires, tandis que le troisième ordre était réservé aux Chefs Secrets avec les trois grades de Magister Templi, Magus et Ipsissimus. Le nom de la Golden Dawn s'accompagnait toujours de son équivalent juif « Chebreth Zerech aur Bokher » tandis que le symbolisme se référait à celui en usage chez les Égyptiens, les Grecs, a mythologie hindoue et, naturellement, la Cabale juive. De plus, dans la Golden Dawn, comme dans le Martinisme, les véritables chefs étaient considérés être les Supérieurs Inconnus, « des êtres invisibles qui, sans corps physique, transmettent cependant des pouvoirs à leurs adeptes ». (352)
La Golden Dawn entretenait d'étroits rapports avec la « Stella matutina », une des sociétés lucifériennes les plus fermées, cénacle restreint de mages à leur tour liés à la Société théosophique. Parmi les personnages éminents de la Golden Dawn, une place à part est occupée par Samuel Liddell Mathers (1854-1918), alias comte de Gleustroë, alias Mac Gregor Mathers. Très versé en sciences occultes, il fut théosophe et membre du cercle intérieur de l'« Ordo Templis Orientis » (O.T.O.) (353) [...] Mathers vivait à Paris avec sa femme Moina, une médium, sœur du juif Henri Bergson, le philosophe des modernistes, premier président du Comité de Coopération Intellectuelle de Paris (une section de la Société des Nations), préfiguration de l'U.N.E.S.C.O. En 1900 ce fut toujours Mathers qui initia à Paris le plus fameux mage noir du siècle, le martiniste Edward Alexander (« Aleister ») Crowley (1875-1947), évêque de l'Église Gnostique et haut dignitaire du rite égyptien de Memphis-Misraïm ; quoi qu'il en soit, peu après, une profonde et inguérissable fracture se produisit entre Mathers et Crowley [...] Crowley était farouchement anti-chrétien et aimait se définir, selon le texte de l'apocalypse, « La Grande Bête », signant ses écrits du nombre de l'Antéchrist, le 666 (v.J. Symonds, « La Grande Bestia », Roma, éd. Méditerranée, 1972.)." (fin de la citation complémentaire sur la Golden Dawn)

comme Sean Mac Bride, fondateur, le jour de la Très Sainte Trinité de 1961, d'Amnesty International, comme Franz Hartmann, spiritiste de la Société Théosophique, le fondateur de l'Antroposophie Rudolf Steiner, Rudolf Hess, etc. Selon Gerson (pseudonyme du martiniste Pierre Mariel) l'O.T.O., ou Fraternitas Hermetica Luciferiana (voir « Daimon », périodique de culture néo-païenne, Pérouse, 1990), ce n'est que le stade préparatoire, propédeutique à la sorcellerie
initiatique (op. cit., p. 128). Il faut rappeler qu'à cette époque l'O.T.O. agissait en relation étroite avec le juif américain Harry Spencer Lewis, fondateur en 1900 de l'Antiquus Misticus Ordo Rosae Crucis(A.M.O.R.C.), société intensément engagée sur la voie de l'instauration d'un gouvernement mondial, dirigée de nos jours par le fils de Lewis, Ralph, et dont le siège principal est à San José de Californie. Cette société aurait aujourd'hui un million d'adhérents (cf. A. Charles Puech , op. cit.. p. 611). La loi suprême de l'O.T.O., loi que la Golden Dawn a faite sienne, était la proclamation de l'émancipation absolue de Dieu : « Fais ce que tu veux » (littéralement : Fais-le), le Do it que l'on peut voir affiché dans les lieux les plus divers, combiné au signe de l'outarde (voir p. 37 de ce livre). L'explication est contenue dans le Liber legis ou Livre de la Loi ; Pierre Mariel rapporte (op. cit., pp. 62-3) des extraits très éloquents « d'une sorte de catéchisme ad usum fratrum de l'O.T.O. ». 
En voici quelques extraits :

« Nous ne voulons pas fonder une nouvelle religion, mais nous voulons balayer les ruines que le christianisme a accumulées sur le vieux monde, afin que la religion antique de la Nature reprenne à nouveau ses droits. [...]. Nous constituons une communauté d'êtres sexuellement libres. Ce message pourra être victorieux seulement quand, dès l'âge le plus tendre, on inculquera aux jeunes tous les principes de la nouvelle morale. [...]"

(cf. René Guénon, Il Theosophismo, éditions Arktos, 1987, vol.II, p.281). La Société Théosophique est une société illuministe fondée en 1875 par une occultiste russe, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, société dans laquelle, sous le prétexte d'une connaissance universelle et exclusive, les thèmes lucifériens ne sont pas marginaux. Il suffit de penser que l'objectif déclaré de la Société était "d'effacer le Christianisme de la face de la terre... de chasser Dieu des Cieux." (cf. René Guénon, op. cit, vol I, p.13 et passim) en arrivant même à nier l'historicité de Jésus-Christ.
p.173 du même livre, on apprend que Rudolf Steiner le célèbre pédagogue, était le chef de la Société Théosophique en Allemagne et qu'en 1902, il a fondé une revue qui s'appelait Lucifer. En 1904, le titre de la revue est devenu Lucifer-Gnosis.

"Revue du Grand Orient de France", n° de janv.-fev. et sept.-oct. 1909, pp. 48, 137 et 196), auditeur de l'Ecole Hermétiste du mage Papus, fondateur à Paris d'un rite templier (v. Gastone Ventura, "Tutti gli uomini del Martinismo", ed. Anator, 1978, p.70), consacré évêque gnostique du martinisme sous le nom de Palingenius (v. Marie-France James, op. cit, p. 104. Très curieusement Palingenius fait fait référence à la renaissance du monde, après sa destruction, à un nouvel âge ; Re-né signifie "né de nouveau"), créateur de la revue "La gnose", il acquit la réputation de codificateur de l'ésotérisme doctrinal moderne.
