Vilified by the British tabloid press as the Wickedest Man in the World, Aleister Crowley became a legend in his own lifetime. Decades ahead of his time, Crowley was a wealthy libertine, poet and... More > intellectual who spent a fortune in the pursuit of illumination. Reviled during his life as a monster, Crowley's reputation for evil has diminished as the social mores of Victorian England recede.
