A Master of Divinity’s Appreciation of Thelema

Patheos.com recently posted an intriguing piece by Nicholas Laccetti describing his journey from dabbling the occult, to pursuing a Master of Divinity degree in a progressive Christian school whilst becoming an Episcopalian, then a Roman Catholic — and then turning to Thelema — all without hostilely rejecting his former beliefs. In part he says:

“…when I finally graduated from divinity school and flowed back into my usual occult study, I realized something—my thesis had taken me from a mostly traditional theology that reflected, in Crowley’s terms, the Aeon of Osiris (the dying and rising god, Osiris and Jesus Christ) to a theology that resembled Crowley’s Aeon of Horus much more than anything currently practiced by the Christian churches. I didn’t have to split myself spiritually anymore. I had somehow reached a synthesis of understanding.”
