The Magick of Aleister Crowley and the Witchcraft of Rosaleen Norton

(p.307) 13 Through the Witch’s Looking Glass
Aleister Crowley and Western Esotericism

This chapter demonstrates how Crowley influenced the witchcraft of Rosaleen Norton. It describes Norton as the most prosecuted and persecuted female artist in Australia, and that she established an esoteric system that she described as witchcraft. It then focuses on Norton's form of witchcraft, where she only initiates a handful of people. This chapter emphasizes that while Norton was not a follower of Crowley, her writings have more references to him than any other individual occultist.

Keywords:   witchcraft, Rosaleen Norton, esoteric system, occultist
