West Palm Beach, FL: Sekhmet Books, 2014. 2nd Impression of Third edition, revised. Hardcover. Octavo. 128pp. Navy cloth with gilt design to upper board, gilt lettering to spine, red endpapers, gold head and tailbands. Smythe-sewn. SIGNED by the authors on the half title page. A hardcover printing of the 3rd and final edition of this popular guide to the Gnostic Mass. With a very few minor revisions, including a photo not included in earlier printings. "Drawing on nearly half a century of regular performance of the Gnostic Mass—and the countless classes and training sessions they have conducted during their O.T.O. careers—the authors offer a coherent look at the ritual described by Aleister Crowley as 'the central ritual of [ the O.T.O.’s ] public and private celebration.' With no attempt to 'improve' upon the teachings of the Master, they elucidate a method of performing the Mass whose entire rationale is a strict adherence to the instructions given in Liber XV. The authors have striven to understand the meaning of Crowley’s text—penned in the white-hot fury of his 1913 inspiration—and extract the relevant spiritual teachings embedded within this elegant ritual." In addition to a detailed commentary, they offer a corrected, uninterrupted Mass Missal suitable for use by individuals and groups interested in working with the ritual, along with valuable insights into magical ceremonies in general, and the Gnostic Mass in particular.
