Abstract

Samuel Liddell ‘MacGregor’ Mathers (1854–1918) was one of the founders of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the creator of its inner order rituals, and a translator and popularizer of both magical grimoires and kabbalistic texts. As such, he can be seen as a key figure in the development of modern esotericism with a broad influence, which can now be found in a wide spectrum of magic-oriented new religious movements and alternative spiritualities.
