The 8th of April of 1904 e. V., for three consecutives days, Aleister Crowley and His wife, claimed to have received by a praeter human intelligence known as Aiwass, the Book of the Law, a new Holy Book for mankind. Thus, Crowley, as the Prophet, announced a new aera, the Aeon of Horus, the age of Thelema. Even if ancient egyptians didn’t believe in any form of reincarnation, Crowley felt to be the dead Ankh-f-Khonsu, a Priest of Montu of the XXVIth dinasty, whose funerary stele in the Boulak Museum became a Holy Relic for the new times, known then as the Stele of Revealing.
Liber AL vel Legis (The Book of the Law) main message is: “Do what thou wilt, shall be the whole of the Law” and also “Love is the law, love under will”. Those three days are considered holy by Thelemites, the name of the followers of Crowley’s doctrine. In good or bad, Crowley is one of the most famous occultists nowadays.
