Aleister Crowley's 

Banned Lecture

THE BANNED LECTURE is a unique discourse by Crowley ostensibly in defence of the notorious Giles De Rais, a mediaeval Magician who has been variously accused of killing between 100 and one thousand children in Satanic Rites.   Is that what Satanists do?  Of course not.

In reality the execution of Rais on 26 October 1440 by an Ecclesiastical Court was as much due to political intrigue and the beginnings of The Burning Times (witchcraft mania ) than to any firm evidence of the alleged atrocities.   The accusations have resurfaced in modern times and many otherwise sensible commentators have fallen for the lies about Rais including some historians who hold that the crimes actually did occur.

                    Banned LectureBut Crowley knew that Giles de Rais' case had been a classic example of the suppression of knowledge by a theocracy and was making ready to tell the Oxford University Poetry Society the truth on Feb 3rd 1930.

His lecture, printed verbatim here, was in reality an attack on the Establishment and an explanation of how the Orthodoxy had always suppressed free thinkers. So penetrating were these conclusions that Father Ronald Knox, the University's Catholic Chaplain, succeeded in banning the lecture at the last minute. This did not frustrate Crowley who immediately had the lecture printed and distributed as you see it in this ebook.

The relevance of Crowley's BANNED LECTURE to modern issues of religious freedom is astounding. His conclusions are of immense importance to all esotericists.  The strategy that the Establishment used to persecute and execute Giles de Rais on charges which are still unclear 500 years afterwards are the same ones which their modern counterparts employ to create mind-control mechanisms in the mass media today. The need for Knox to suppress Crowley's comments about Rais have their parallel with the fundamentalists wish to ban Crowley's writings today.

  Crowley's BANNED LECTURE has become his 'defence from the grave'. Seventy years after the event the spectre of Crowley's BANNED LECTURE reappears again to smite the lies and contradict the conclusions which snipe nosed bigots thought they were safe in asserting.

When you read THE BANNED LECTURE and see what 'The Wickedest Man in the World' really thought about Black Magic and Satanism you will see that Crowley has managed to confounded his critics 'from the grave'  This rare treatise is now available for instant download. See Below;
