The Eloquent Blood: The Goddess Babalon and the Construction of Femininities in Western Esotericism

Sunday, June 6, 2021
2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Dr. Manon Hedenborg White’s book The Eloquent Blood: The Goddess Babalon and the Construction of Femininities in Western Esotericism focuses on the changing construction of femininity and feminine sexuality in interpretations of the goddess Babalon. A central deity in Thelema, the religion founded by the notorious British occultist Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), Babalon is based on Crowley’s favorable reinterpretation of the biblical Whore of Babylon, and is associated with liberated female sexuality and the spiritual ideal of passionate union with existence.

Admission $8

This lecture will take place virtually, via Zoom. Ticket sales will end at 12 pm EDT on the day of the lecture.
