Aleister Crowley was the Curse of Tutankhamun

Gepostet vor 4 Jahren, 6 Monaten in

Satanisten-Posterboy Aleister Crowley soll im London der 20er für den Fluch des Pharao verantwortlich sein. Das will zumindest ein englischer Historiker rausgefunden haben.

Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, London was gripped by the mythical curse of Tutankhamun, the Egyptian boy-king, whose tomb was uncovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter. More than 20 people linked to the opening of the pharaoh's burial chamber in Luxor in 1923 bizarrely died over the following years - six of them in the capital. […]

At the time, a frenzied Press blamed the 'Curse of Tutankhamun' for the deaths and speculated on the supernatural powers of the ancient Egyptians.

But Mr Beynon has now drawn on previously unpublished evidence to conclude the deaths were all ritualistic killings masterminded by Crowley, an occultist dubbed "the wickedest man in the world". After unique analysis of Crowley's diaries, essays and books and inquest reports, the armchair detective argues that he was a Jack the Ripper-obsessed copycat killer. Crowley, who called himself 'The Great Beast', apparently had his own motives to tarnish the legacy of Carter's legendary discovery.

The gods and goddesses of Crowley's own religious philosophy, Thelema, were mainly drawn from ancient Egyptian religion. He believed himself to be a prophet of a new age of personal liberty, controlled by the ancient Egyptian god Horus. It is likely that he would have found Carter's excavation sacrilegious and wanted revenge, according to Mr Beynon.
