The Hierophant is a human bridge between Divinity and Humanity.
The Hierophant is the Keeper of the Greater Mysteries and is the one
who holds the deepest contact with Universal Divinity while still being human.
The Work of the Hierophant covers methods of reaching for inner magical lines of contact and power, and how to bring them through into initiatory/consecrated lines. The book also looks in depth at the methods of building the inner temple and the egregore. The techniques in this book explore alternative ways for the Hierophant/Magus/Magister to approach the inception and development of a fully contacted magical lodge. The structure behind the magical technique is examined, and approached in a way that is harmonious with our 21st century consciousness.
“You can count on the fingers of one hand the number of books that describe real magical orders with insight and clarity—and two of those were written nearly eighty years ago. The Work of the Hierophant is one of the very few intelligent books written about genuine magical orders. In it, Josephine McCarthy gives us some startling, eye-opening, and at times disturbing insights into how true orders work, and how we might connect with them. This is the real thing. Trust me, this will become a classic.” —Alan Richardson, author of Aleister Crowley and Dion Fortune: The Logos of the Aeon and the Shakti of the Age
