Ordo Templi Orientis. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour les articles homonymes, voir OTO. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Le commencement[modifier | modifier le code] La fondation de l'Ordo Templi Orientis fut l'œuvre du chimiste Karl Kellner (1851-1905), étudiant des doctrines de l'occulte et membre de plusieurs organisations secrètes. Il pensa avoir découvert la « clé » du secret de la Franc-maçonnerie dans les Mystère de la Nature eux-mêmes. Il aspira ensuite à créer une Academia Masonica qui unifierait les divers systèmes de la Franc-maçonnerie.

Kellner, avec l'aide de Theodor Reuss (1855-1923), décida de nommer cette nouvelle organisation l'Ordre du Temple d'Orient. En 1902, Reuss, avec Franz Hartmann et Henry Klein, obtint le droit de pratiquer le Rite Écossais, le Rite de Memphis et le Rite de Mizraïm (1), autorité qui lui sera confirmée en 1904 et en 1905. L'O.T.O. et Aleister Crowley[modifier | modifier le code] Notes : L'O.T.O. après Crowley[modifier | modifier le code] Karl Kellner (Chemiker) Karl Kellner Karl Kellner (eigentlich Carl August Kellner; * 1. September 1851 in Wien; † 7.

Juni 1905 ebenda) war ein österreichischer Chemiker, Industrieller, Erfinder, Freimaurer und Okkultist. Nach ihm ist das Ritter-Kellner-Verfahren zur Zellulosegewinnung benannt. Während seiner Arbeit in einem Wiener Privatlaboratorium machte Kellner bereits im Alter von 22 Jahren jene entscheidenden Beobachtungen, die nach seinem 1876 erfolgten Eintritt in die Fabrik des Julius Hektor Ritter Freiherrn von Záhony (1816–1878) in Podgora bei Görz in dem nach ihm und Ritter benannten und binnen Kurzem von zahlreichen Papierfabriken in Verwendung genommenen Sulfit-Zelluloseverfahren (Patente von 1884) gipfelten. 1895 begann Kellner seine Idee der Gründung einer „Academia Masonica“ mit Theodor Reuß unter dem Namen Orientalischer Templerorden zu besprechen.

Karl Kellner war seit 1885 mit Marie Delorme verheiratet und hatte mit ihr vier Kinder. Helmut Möller, Ellic Howe: Merlin Peregrinus. Thelema. The word thelema is the English transliteration of the Koine Greek noun θέλημα (pronounced [θélima]) "will", from the verb θέλω "to will, wish, purpose. " As Crowley developed the religion, he wrote widely on the topic, producing what are collectively termed the Holy Books of Thelema. He also included ideas from occultism, Yoga and both Eastern and Western mysticism, especially the Qabalah.[8] Historical precedents[edit] The word θέλημα (thelema) is rare in classical Greek, where it "signifies the appetitive will: desire, sometimes even sexual",[9] but it is frequent in the Septuagint.[9] Early Christian writings occasionally use the word to refer to the human will,[10] and even the will of God's opponent, the Devil,[11] but it usually refers to the will of God.[12] One well-known example is in the "Lord's Prayer" (Matthew 6:10), “Your kingdom come.

Your will (Θελημα) be done, On earth as it is in heaven.” François Rabelais[edit] Francis Dashwood and the Hellfire Club[edit] True Will[edit] Aleister Crowley. After an unsuccessful attempt to climb Kanchenjunga and a visit to India and China, Crowley returned to Britain, where he attracted attention as a prolific author of poetry, novels, and occult literature.

In 1907, he and George Cecil Jones co-founded a Thelemite order, the A∴A∴, through which they propagated the religion. After spending time in Algeria, in 1912 he was initiated into another esoteric order, the German-based Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), rising to become the leader of its British branch, which he reformulated in accordance with his Thelemite beliefs. Through the OTO, Thelemite groups were established in Britain, Australia, and North America. He spent the First World War in the United States, where he took up painting and campaigned for the German war effort against Britain, later revealing that he had infiltrated the pro-German movement at the behest of the British intelligence services.

Manson's death sentence was automatically commuted to life imprisonment when a 1972 decision by the Supreme Court of California temporarily eliminated the state's death penalty.[3] California's eventual reinstatement of capital punishment did not affect Manson, who is currently incarcerated at Corcoran State Prison.

Murder of Hinman[edit] Accompanying Beausoleil that night were Susan Atkins and Mary Brunner, both later involved in other murders and crimes.

Beausoleil claims that Hinman supplied him with a batch of bad mescaline that Beausoleil in turn sold to the Straight Satans motorcycle gang. When the bikers demanded their money back, Manson ordered Beausoleil to Hinman's residence to get the money. Hinman is said to have refused to pay saying, "I don't have any money to give you". Manson arrived and proceeded to slice off a part of Hinman's ear with a sword; Atkins and Brunner stitched it up with dental floss afterwards. The Satanic Bible.
