My Own O.T.O.A. 1987-1991
These are extracts from letters by Michael Paul Bertiaux, relating to my charters.
Bertiaux and I shared a black humour together.
Of about 50 letters (with a total of about 150 handwritten pages), I reproduce here only a handful — out of purely scholarly interest.
Context: the XI° of the O.T.O., the history of the O.T.O.A. (with an overview of the Choronzon Club and La Couleuvre Noire), Memphis-Misraim, Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua, the French Gnostics such as Jean Bricaud, Jules Doinel, Robert Ambelain et. al. and Stefan Hoeller.
The correspondence ended in 1991 and was never to be continued.
My archives include extensive correspondence with Manuel Cabrera Lamparter, the O.T.O.A. archives of the countries of the former Yugoslavia, as well as several boxes of O.T.O.A. journals and internals.
Of course, I am also familiar with current O.T.O.A. material.
