The Red Goddess

CAD $135.00

THE RED GODDESS by Peter Grey (2021 Edition) – Limited Edition Hardcover

The Red Goddess takes you through a tale of sex, drugs and violence. This is an ecstatic journey through the unheard history of Babalon. This is an explicit and challenging vision of a very modern goddess coming into power. From Revelation, back through the Ishtar Gate and forward into a living modern magickal current. This is more than a history, it is a passionate account of living magick and the transcendent power of Love.

The epic sweep of the text takes us from Babylon to Jerusalem to Rome, and onwards to Apocalypse. It confronts us with the language and symbols of our own culture and the denied demonic feminine. It looks at the Angelic work of renaissance mage John Dee and places it in a European eschatology. It delivers a devastating exegesis on the excesses of Aleister Crowley, and unlocks the secrets of ‘Waratah Blossoms.’ It explains the immolation of the Californian antichrist-superstar Jack Parsons and his relationship with Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. There is also a full supporting cast of Solomon, Simon Magus, St John the Divine, Earl Bothwell, the Templars, Mary, the Magdalene and countless others. This is the missing history of the Love goddess in the West.

Thirteen essays conclude the book on subjects including: roses, mirror magick, bdsm, aphrodisiac drugs, the information age, love vs lust, and the meaning of apocalypse. The Red Goddess is for anyone with blood in their veins, regardless of tradition, background or experience.

The 2021 edition of The Red Goddess has been freshly typeset and is introduced with a preface by Alkistis Dimech. First published fourteen years ago, it has not been available in hardcover for over a decade. In this modern classic, Peter Grey takes the reader on a personal, passionate historical journey of the goddess Babalon, from the Book of Revelation to a modern, powerful re-awakening, via John Dee, Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons. Thirteen essays conclude the book: on roses, mirror magick, bdsm, aphrodisiac drugs, the information age, love and lust, and the apocalypse. The ‘Pearl’ edition, which is the standard hardback of this edition, is limited to 777 copies. Its copies are bound in pearl white silk book cloth, stamped in scarlet with the star of Babalon, scarlet edges, ribbon and endpapers, and translucent dust jacket.
