Aleister Crowley remains a controversial figure. He was resurrected from obscurity by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Ozzy Osbourne. Crowley born is 1875 became an accomplished mountain climber, world traveler, writer, poet,painter and socialized in Bohemian circles. “Abbey of Thelema” is tackling the most controversial part of Crowley's life, beginning in New York as a painter and meeting Leah Hirzig. The Abbey, founded in Sicily in 1920, was a forerunner of hippie communities with it's experimentation of drugs and sexuality.
With a media campaign launched (who named Crowley “the Englishman we'd like to hang” and “the wickedest man on Earth“), and Mussolini's abolishing secret societys (from Mafia to occult ones),Crowley was deported in 1923. Crowley remained mainly in Europe until his Great Feast (Death) December 1st, 1947.
