Aleister Crowley is one of the most renowned, controversial, and remarkable figures to emerge from the Western Occult Revival era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His tradition lives on as his books remain in print and popular, while the esoteric school he founded—Ordo Templi Orientis, or O.T.O.—continues as a going concern today, with lodges to be found around the world.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1854–1918) was a prominent scholar and key leader of the occult revival of the Western Mystery Tradition in the late 1800s. He held high office in the esoteric fraternal order of Rosicrucians and with other luminaries of his time and founded the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Mathers was a prolific editor and author.
