Frederick Hockley - Spiritualist and Magician (re-broadcast)

The Hermetic Hour
56min
On Thursday May 19th, 2016 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will air a discussion on the noted British 19th century occultist, spiritualist and magician Frederick Hockley ( 1809 - 1885 ) mentor of Francis "the Magus" Barrett and Kenneth "the Cypher manuscript Mackenzie". Hockley was an ardent Freemason and Rosicrucian with genuine Rosicrucian connections and documents. He was a collector and a transcriber of occult manuscripts and several of his once rare treasures are being reissued today. We will read Hockley's account of "Raising the Devil" (a homunculus in a bottle) from "The Rosicrucian Seer" by John Hamill, and then discuss our own attempt to replicate this operation. We will discuss Hockley's influence on the Golden Dawn and the occult revival. So if you'd like to "Raise the Devil" with old Fred Hockley tune in and we'll get it on.
