If you are not familiar with the Golden Dawn:
" The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (or, more commonly, the Golden Dawn ) was a magical order active in Great Britain during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which practiced theurgy and spiritual development. It has been one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultism . [1 ] [2 ]
Concepts of magicand ritual at the center of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca [3 ] [4 ] and Thelema, were inspired by the Golden Dawn.
The three founders, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott, and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Matherswere Freemasonsand members of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia(S.R.I.A.). [5 ] Westcott appears to have been the initial driving force behind the establishment of the Golden Dawn.
The Golden Dawn system was based on hierarchy and initiation like the Masonic Lodges, however women were admitted on an equal basis with men. The "Golden Dawn" was the first of three Orders, although all three are often collectively referred to as the "Golden Dawn". The First Order taught esoteric philosophy based on the Hermetic Qabalahand personal development through study and awareness of the four Classical Elementsas well as the basics of astrology, tarot divination, and geomancy. The Second or "Inner" Order, the Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis(the Ruby Rose and Cross of Gold), taught proper magic, including scrying, astral travel, and alchemy. The Third Order was that of the " Secret Chiefs", who were said to be highly skilled but no longer incarnate; they supposedly directed the activities of the lower two orders by spirit communication with the Chiefs of the Second Order."
Cipher Manuscripts Folio 13 of the Cipher Manuscripts
The foundational documents of the original Order of the Golden Dawn are known as the Cipher Manuscripts; they were written in English using Trithemius cipher. The Manuscripts give the specific outlines of the Grade Rituals of the Order and prescribe a curriculum of graduated teachings that encompass the Hermetic Qabalah, astrology, occult tarot, geomancy, and alchemy.
According to the records of the Order, the manuscripts were passed from Kenneth Mackenzie, a Masonic scholar, to Rev. A.F.A. Woodford, whom British occult writer Francis Kingdescribes as the fourth founder [6 ] (although Woodford died shortly after the Order was founded). [7 ] The documents did not excite Woodford and in February 1886 he passed them on to Freemason William Wynn Westcott, who managed to decode them in 1887. [6 ] Westcott was pleased with his discovery and called on fellow Freemason Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathersfor a second opinion. Westcott asked for Mathers' help to turn the manuscripts into a coherent system for lodge work. Mathers in turn asked fellow Freemason William Robert Woodmanto assist the two and he accepted. [6 ] Mathers and Westcott have been credited for developing the ritual outlines in the Cipher Manuscripts into a workable format. [8 ] Mathers, however, is generally credited with the design of the curriculum and rituals of the Second Order, which he called the Rosae Rubae et Aureae Crucis("Ruby Rose and Golden Cross" or the RR et AC).
