LECTURE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH, 7 PM
Cosmos, Chaos, and the Traditional Gnosis of the Left-Hand Path
In this talk, Dr. George Sieg addresses the Traditionalist reception of Left-Hand Path ideas, and the Left-Hand Path reception of concepts of tradition.
He will particularly reference the work of Julius Evola and the problematic relationship between Evola's aristocratic reactionary posture and the milieu of the Third Reich, particularly Evola's sympathies toward the Herrenklub and the parallel trends in the cosmic-circle of Stefan Georg.
Proceeding to consider the interactions of aristocratic left-hand path philosophies with radical, extremist, and mass movements generally, Dr. Sieg will compare the left-hand path "neo-traditionalism" of various contemporary groups and works, including the *Liber Nigri Solis*, with the traditionalism of other contemporary currents in sympathy with left-hand path perspectives, including the 'cosmic gnosis' of that works publisher. He will conclude by proposing some final thoughts on the transmission of various categories of dualism through contemporary esotericism and make some predictions about the developing role of related views of Tradition.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The vestments of old ages will wither along the road of pilgrimage, and newborn flesh will house the smokeless flame of gnosis. And thus a new book may have and old heart, and the songs of my mothers will be sung by foreign throats.
-Oracle of Heb á Qual
The Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual constitutes a contemporary exploration of the grimoire known as The Treasure of the Old Man of the Pyramids, executed by means of sorcerous reification in order to present the mysteries that veil the heart of a book of power.
New incantations complement the twenty reworked talismans, and a transmission of sigils for entering into the tutelage of the Sentinel of this liber spiritum has been appended to the more traditional content.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
This work is a grimoire of black magic evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash angels.
The Shem ha Mephorash or Explicit Name is a list of 72 angels derived by ancient occultists. Combined, these spirits are believed to comprise the secret name of the Creation of the Universe.
Now, for the first time, these angels are uncovered and illuminated, presented with detailed information and spirit signatures, enabling witches and left-hand-path magicians to access their energy and interact with them through ceremonial conjuration and black magic. In essence, 'Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash' dissects the Abrahamic creator Deity into 72 segments and empowers brave witches everywhere to ritually evoke them into conscious interactive manifestation.
LIBER NIGRI SOLIS:
An Æonic Astrochymical Grimoire of the Black Sun
By Victor Voronov
Friedberg, Germany: Theion Publishing, 2013. Standard Edition: Limited to 540 hand-numbered copies only: bound in full ivory cloth, black front embossing, black lettering on spine. List Price: $63.95
Liber Nigri Solis, edited by Victor Voronov, elaborates the occult, magical and initiatory work of two esoteric orders. Presenting the aeonic history, mythic imagery, and arcane aesthetics of the Black Sun along with its alchemical and astrological aspects and significances, this opus includes a concise though multi-faceted esoteric system in theory and practice suitable for work with the Black Sun on microcosmic, mesocosmic, and macrocosmic levels.
It will enable solitary practitioners and occult colleagues alike to cultivate the Gnosis of the Sol Niger through self-initiatory workings, rites, and operations of sinister alchemy.
The reader will be provided with eighteen keys which open the nine Infernal Gates and the nine Gates of Radiant Darkness, ultimately leading to the vision of the Black Sun, which radiates twelve Crooked Paths that cross the nine Thresholds. The text also expounds significant concepts such as the Fivefold Unmanifest or the Grand Chymical Conjunction of the arcane Black Suns that unveils the fiery gates of the Inverse Opus. Beyond researches concerning the sunspot cycle and cosmological considerations pertaining to Indo-Iranian mythology, substantial theoretical and operative material concerning plague-magic and epidemics has been included.
Liber Nigri Solis is a truly controversial grimoire and whether one agrees or not with all of its antinomian gnosis and sinister strategies, the uniqueness, sophistication and otherworldly power of its system is undeniable. Lavishly illustrated with artwork commissioned especially for this book, Liber Nigri Solis also features a fascinating, elaborate introduction by Dr. Eva Kingsepp of Stockholm University.
Bibliographic details: 165×235 mm, 288pp, 10 full page halftone illustrations, numerous further illustrations.
All books are printed and bound in Germany. Standard Edition: Limited to 540 hand-numbered copies only: bound in full ivory cloth, black front embossing, black lettering on spine.
