The Vision and the Voice

The Vision and the Voice

"The Vision and the Voice" (Liber 418) chronicles the mystical journey of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) as he explored the 30 Enochian Æthyrs originally developed by Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley in the 16th century. These visions took place at two times: in 1900 during his stay in Mexico, and later in 1909 in Algeria (along with his magical companion, Victor Neuburg). Of all his works, Crowley considered this book to be second in importance behind "The Book of the Law", the text that established his religious and philosophical system of Thelema in 1904.

"The Vision and the Voice" is the source of many of the central spiritual doctrines of Thelema, especially in the visions of Babalon and her consort Chaos (the "All-Father"), as well as an account of how an individual ego might cross the Abyss, thereby assuming the title of "Master of the Temple" and taking a place in the City of the Pyramids under the Night of Pan.
