XVIll LEMEGETON VEL CLAVICULA SALOMONIS REGIS-GOETIA

This preliminary skirmish-Britain's answer to the astral battles of de Guaita and
Boullan-erupted after Crowley's return to Scotland from Cairo, where he had
received The Book of the Law. On finding that Mathers had attacked him, Crowley
employed the appropriate talismans from The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra­
Melin against him, evoking Beelzebub and his forty-nine servitors.... the magical
assaults ceased.25

As we will see, a major battle in this war would be fought some seven years later
in two of the lowest hells-the press and the courts.
1904 was also the year that Mathers received a typescript copy of The Book of
the Law from Crowley, with its accompanying message that he had been replaced by
the Secret Chiefs as Chief Adept.26 With the Goetia, Crowley publicly declared him­
self the Chief of the Rosicrucian Fraternity, or at least the R.R. etA. C.-it is doubtful
that Crowley drew any distinction at this early stage of his career. The title page to
his Enochian translation of the conjurations (page 95 infra) is unambiguous, refer­
ring to "our Illustrious and ever-Glorious Frater, ye Wise Perdurabo, that Myghtye
Chiefe of ye Rosy-Cross Fraternitye, now sepulchred in ye Vault of ye Collegium
S.S." Crowley never openly repented this youthful excess, but he did later develop a
more pragmatic and skeptical attitude to the problem of Rosicrucian derivation.
For Mathers, perhaps the most worrying item in the Goetia was Crowley's omi­
nous footnote: "The true life of this man and his associates ... may be looked for in
my forthcoming volume: History of the Order of the Golden Dawn" (see page 26
infra). Mathers promptly expelled Crowley from the G.D. in 1905 because "he had
circulated libels against [Mathers] and was working against the interests of the
Order."27It is likely that the Goetia was the proximate cause of his expulsion.
Around 1907 Jones and Crowley assumed the offices of Prremonstrator and
Imperator of the R.R. etA. C. and G.D. orders, which they formally subsumed under
the true name of the Third Order, known in the outer only by its initials, theA:.A:. .
They began publishing the Order's periodical, The Equinox, in 1909, which included
a serialization of Crowley's magical career entitled "The Temple of Solomon the
King," coauthored with Capt. J.F.C. Fuller, the Cancellarius of the A:.A:. . The
promised account of the G.D. and its rituals began to appear in the second number
of The Equinox. In 1910 Mathers obtained an injunction to stop the publication of
the third number, but the injunction was overturned on appeal after two days.
In the wake of Crowley's highly-publicized magical performances, The Rites of
Eleusis, a press campaign began to "examine" the A:.A:. and its leadership. De
Wend Fenton's racing tabloid The Looking Glass described theA:.A:. as "a blasphe­
mous sect, whose proceedings conceivably lend themselves to immorality of the most
revolting character,"28 and most of the articles alluded to Crowley's notoriety and

evil character. George Cecil Jones was mentioned in the context of one of these
attacks as an associate of Crowley's, and Jones construed this as libel. Crowley was
of course the actual target, but he declined to take legal action.29
Jones served The Looking Glass with a writ for criminal libel. The trial partici­
pants included two A:. A:. officers, Jones as plaintiff and Capt. J.F.C. Fuller, who tes­
tified for Jones. Testify ing for the defense was none other than S. L. MacGregor
Mathers, joined by his new English plenipotentiary Dr. E.W. Berridge; their only rea­
son for participating was revenge against Crowley, who was present but was not
called as a witness by either side. Fuller later asked Jones why he had not subpoenaed
Crowley. Jones replied "if, as my friend, he had not the decency to come forward
willingly, it would have been an insult to my self had I compelled him to do so."30
The trial was bizarre, compared by the presiding judge in the presence of the jury
to the trial in Alice in Wonderland-a pun on the defendant The Looking Glass.
Under oath, Mathers cheerfully affirmed his headship of the Rosicrucian Order, but
Jones, who as an officer of A:. A:. took a more sub rosa stance when confronted with
this question, stated simply that "honestly I do not know except from having read
the Seventeenth Century Tracts whether there is or was such a society."31
Dr. E.W. Berridge testified about the crux of the issue, Crowley's reputation:

Berridge: On one occasion when Crowley was over here as an envoy on official
matters concerning the Order [probably in 1900] I had the opportunity of speak­
ing alone to him, and I said to him: "Do you know what they accuse you of?"­
meaning the members of the Order. I will not express it too plainly as I see there
are ladies in the Court.
Mr. Justice Scrutton: Any ladies who may be in this Court probably are beyond
any scruples of that sort.
Berridge: Well, I said, "They accuse you of unnatural vice," and he made a very
peculiar answer; he neither admitted it nor denied it. The answer was this-! pre­
sume my answer is privileged . He said, mentioning the name of some men I do not
remember, "So and so has been to my place and he stopped all night, and So and
So has been to my place and he stopped all night and So and So has been to my
place and he stopped all night; ladies have been to my place-! will not say they
stopped all night-but the police can find out nothing about me for more than two
years or eighteen months back." That was such an extraordinary statement that
it has remained fixed in my mind ever since:32

had made it, might have meant anything or nothing in the absence of any context."

XX LEMEGETON VEL CLAVICULA SALOMONIS REGIS-GOETIA

Not surprisingly, Jones lost both the case and his close relationship with Crowley.
J.F.C. Fuller dropped Crowley entirely over this affair. Mathers had wanted to strike
back at Crowley and the A:.A:. for their exposure of the G.D., and succeeded in per­
sonally estranging the senior officers of the A:.A:. from one another. Crowley
believed Mathers to have become a tool of the Black Lodge, which works in opposi­
tion to the Great White Brotherhood or A:.A:., and the loss of Jones and Fuller was
undoubtedly a setback. But Crowley kept on, and the A:.A:. thrived in the following
years, given added impetus by the trial publicity. The G.D. (or as Mathers renamed
it, the Hermetic Order of the Alpha and Omega) fared less well.
Why did Crowley not himself sue, or testify for Jones? Crowley gives his own
explanation in his Confessions, but even this necessarily sidestepped the truth: Crow­
ley was a bisexual in Edwardian England. With its hangover of Victorian sex hypoc­
risy and hysteria, homosexuality was a felony. Oscar Wilde had suffered his not-so­
rosy crucifixion only a few years earlier; unless willing to lie under oath, Crowley did
not dare take the stand. Jones and Fuller failed to grasp his predicament; they were
both, as the English still say, "family men." Crowley declared himself "content to
await the acquittal of history,"33 and thanks to social evolution-changes Crowley
himself predicted-we may now at last say that history has returned its verdict.

What is a "demon," our nearly meaningless English word that derives from what the
Greeks called the daimon, and the Romans the da?mon? Crowley frequently relied
on the etymology or origins of words to elucidate their real meaning. Plato derived
the word from 8a�f1WV ("knowing"), but a modern authority suggests that
the ety mology more likely stems from the root8a[w,"to divide (destinies)." Thus
· the word could designate one's "fate" or "destiny," or the spirit controlling one's
fate, one's "genius."34

Some of the earliest records of "minor spirits"-that is to say, spiritual entities
that were not well-established gods or goddesses-come from Sumeria and Babylo­
nia, where they were understood .,to be frequently attached to, albeit quite distinct
from, individual people.35 Like ourselves, such spirits had both good and bad quali­
ties and propensities, and were an accepted fact of everyday life.
As Anthony Burgess quipped, supernature abhors a supervacuum, and influenced
by Persian dualism, the Babylonians demonized many of these spirits and consigned
them to a spiritual underworld.36 Their original import began to be obscured, and so

compare these works with Crowley's 1903 essay "The Initiated Interpretation of Ceremonial
Magic," p. 15 infra, arguably the foundation text of modern magical theory.

NOTE
I had intended in this place to devote a little attention to the edition
(save the mark) of the Goetia produced by Mr. A .E. Waite in The Book
of Black Magic.
But a fresh perusal of that work reveals it to be such a farrago of
twenty-fifth-rate shoddy schoolboy journalism that disgust compels
me to refrain. I may merely mention that the letterpress is garbled and
the seals abominably drawn. To give one concrete example; on p . 202
Mr. Waite observes:
"This" (that the compiler of the Lemegeton was acquainted with
the N.T.) "is proved by the references in the Third Conjuration to the
Living Creatures of the Apocalypse ."
There is no such reference!
In the Second Conjuration, for I have corrected Mr. Waite's careless
blunder, there is a reference to Living Creatures; there is also a refer­
ence to the same beings in the Apocalypse .
The argument then stands:
The Book of Chronicles refers to King Solomon (unknown date).
Mr. Waite refers to King Solomon (1898),
Therefore,
The author of the Book of Chronicles was acquainted with Mr.
Waite's book . 1
We will conclude by condoling with the author of the Book of
Chronicles .

1 Even apart from this, if Living Creatures are really existent things-which the name
would suggest-the argument stands:
The Rig-Veda,
The Old Testament,
The lnsidecompletuar Britanniaware,
The Sword of Song
all refer to the Sun.
:. there is a common source in literature.
Mr. Waite's fallacy is all very well, though, for people who have never kept
Living Creatures, nor even made a fourth at Bridge.

LEGEMETON VEL CLAVICULA SALOMONIS REGIS

The Preliminary Definition of Magic1

MAGIC is the Highest, most Absolute, and most Divine Knowledge of
Natural Philosophy, advanced in its works and wonderful operations
by a right understanding of the inward and occult virtue of things; so
that true Agents2 being applied to proper Patients, 3 strange and admi­
rable effects will thereby be produced. W hence magicians are pro­
found and diligent searchers into Nature: they, because of their skill,
know how to anticipate an effort, 4 the which to the vulgar shall seem
to be a miracle.
Origen saith that the Magical Art doth not contain anything sub­
sisting, but although it should, yet that it must not be Evil, or subject
to contempt or scorn: and doth distinguish the Natural Magic from
that which is Diabolical.
Apollonius Tyanreus only exercised the Natural Magic, by the
which he did perform wonderful things.
Philo Hebrreus saith that true Magic, by which we do arrive at the
understanding of the Secret Works of Nature, is so far from being con­
temptible that the greatest Monarchs and Kings have studied it. Nay!

1 This Preliminary Definition of Magic is found in very few Codices, and is probably
later than the body of the work.

among the Persians none might reign unless he was skilful in this
GREAT ART.
This Noble Science often degenerateth, from Natural becometh
Diabolical, and from True Philosophy turneth unto Nigromancy.1 The
which is wholly to be charged upon its followers, who, abusing or not
being capable of that High and Mystical Knowledge do immediately
hearken unto the temptations of Sathan, and are misled by him into the
Study of the Black Art. Hence it is that Magic lieth under disgrace, and
they who seek after it are vulgarly esteemed Sorcerers.
The Fraternity of the Rosie Crusians thought it not fit to style them­
selves Magicians, but rather Philosophers. And they be not ignorant
Empiricks, 2 but learned and experienced Physicians, whose remedies
be not only Lawful but Divine.
