The occult revival of evil
The Dark History of the Occult: Magic, Madness and Murder by Paul RolandFrom tribal magic and shamanism, through the work of WB Yeats and Aleister Crowley, to black magic rituals and New Age nihilists, The Dark History of the Occult asks whether satanic forces are simply the emergence of the dark side of human nature, or whether we really have something to fear—namely, evil?
Black magic murders, Satanic sex cults and demonic possession are the diabolical practices that grab tabloid headlines and reinforce the myth that evil and an unhealthy obsession with the occult are to blame for our increasingly violent society. But is the truth even more dark and disturbing? What evidence is there that evil entities can possess human beings and force them to commit horrific murders?
In this fully illustrated hardcover volume, occult expert Paul Roland traces the history of the Black Arts back to uncover profane rituals, infernal ceremonies and demonic invocations. He explores the origins of our beliefs in devils and demons, and how the early Church created the cult of witchcraft to justify the persecution of followers of the old religion.

Revival Of Evil
Occultism , various theories and practices involving a belief in and knowledge or use of supernatural forces or beings. Such beliefs and practices—principally magical or divinatory—have occurred in all human societies throughout recorded history, with considerable variations both in their nature and in the attitude of societies toward them. In the West the term occultism has acquired intellectually and morally pejorative overtones that do not obtain in other societies where the practices and beliefs concerned do not run counter to the prevailing worldview. Some anthropologists have argued that it is not possible to make a clear-cut distinction between magic—a principal component of occultism—and religion , and this may well be true of the religious systems of some nonliterate societies. The argument does not hold, however, for any of the major religions, which regard both natural and moral law as immutable. Those aspects of occultism that appear to be common to all human societies—divination, magic , witchcraft , and alchemy—are treated in depth below.
A dated but interesting and sometimes laughable on how the Occult has infiltrated mainstream American life.

The Occult Revival
These are the angels in each Watchtower whose names are written on either side of the lesser crosses beneath the arms of the lesser crosses. They are obviously related to the sixteen Dispositors, but this relationship is never made completely clear by the Enochian angels. The sixteen angels above the arms of the lesser crosses are said by Ave to be wholly good, whereas the sixteen angels below the arms are a mixed nature, neither wholly good nor wholly evil. Tyson tend to believe that the Dispositors are the angels above the arms because all the other angels in the Great Vision are good. It might be speculated that the sixteen angels above the arms rule the sixteen below the arms, but Ave does not directly state this relationship. There are 64 lesser angels of the Watchtowers. Beneath the horizontal bar of each Calvery Cross are sixteen squares four letters across separated by the vertical bar of the Cross, and four letters down.
