The Incoming of the Aeon of Maat

Correspondence between Frater Achad and Gerald Yorke in 1948

Shortly after Aleister Crowley died in late 1947, his long-term friend and colleague Gerald Yorke wrote to Charles Stansfeld Jones (Frater Achad), at one time Crowley’s collaborator and Magical Son. The correspondence which arose dealt with Crowley’s relations with Achad, interpretations of the Book of the Law, and other aspects of Crowley’s work. Achad also here asserted the incoming of the Aeon of Truth and Justice in April 1948, foreshadowed in Achad’s published work of the early 1920s. Kenneth Grant referred to these exchanges in his Outside the Circles of Time and elsewhere as ‘Official and Unofficial Correspondence Concerning the Incoming of the Aeon of Maat’. Michael Staley discusses this fascinating material, and looks into Achad's intended meaning of the incoming of the Aeon of Truth and Justice, how this relates to the concept of a succession of aeons, and its relationship to the Aeon of Horus. Michael Staley is the founder of Starfire Publishing, which will be publishing the correspondence in summer 2010.
