British writer, occultist.
Born October 12, 1875, Crowley became interested in the occult
while an undergraduate at Cambridge University, and he later founded the order known as the Silver Star. He travelled widely, settling for some years in Sicily with a group of disciples at the Abbey of Thelema. Rumours of drug abuse, orgies, and magical ceremonies led to his expulsion from Italy. He liked to be known as "the great beast" and "the wickedest man alive," and it remains a mysterious coincidence that many who associated with him died tragically.
