The Sunday Tribune needed some books so popped into the Atlantis Bookshop in Museum Street London.
The Atlantis Bookshop is one of the oldest bookshops of esoterica and occult books around. It regards itself, quite rightly, as the living history of magic as it has had such renown customers of the magical world as the father of modern witchcraft, Gerald Gardner, the poet W. B. Yeats and the beast himself, Aleister Crowley.
The shop does not just sell books and magical paraphernalia, one can also attend talks and events more of which can be found at their website.
Aleister Crowley was born on 12 October 1875 and died on 1 December 1947. He was an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer who had an obsession climbing the Himalayan mountains. He founded the religion of Thelema famous for its saying: “Do What Thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law, Love is the Law, Love under Will.”
In the Book of Enoch The Watchers are angels who were sent down from Heaven to watch over Humanity on Earth. Gods plan didn’t work out. Soon after these heavenly beings lusted for human women. The result was catastrophic. The offspring of these women were savage giants – Nephilim, who were killing every living creature on earth including the humans. God’s punishment followed.
