¶ Dion Fortune (1891-1946) one of the twentieth century's most famous occultists: a former member of the Golden Dawn who founded her own order, The Society of the Inner Light. "The Qabalah is the traditional mystical system of Israel. It also formed the basis of medieval magic. MacGregor Mathers, Wynn Westcott and other modern Qabalists made use of the Tree of Life, the curious diagram which is key to the practical Qabalah as a system of illuminism. This book deals with the work of the modern Qabalists as a contribution to the psychology of Mystical experience, and also throws much light on the nature of primitive religion and the Mystery Cults." - from the front flap blurb.
