On Thursday May 19th, 2016 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will

air a discussion on the noted British 19th century occultist,

spiritualist and magician Frederick Hockley ( 1809 – 1885 ) mentor of

Francis “the Magus” Barrett and Kenneth “the Cypher manuscript

Mackenzie”. Hockley was an ardent Freemason and Rosicrucian with genuine

Rosicrucian connections and documents.He was a collector and a

transcriber of occult manuscripts and several of his once rare treasures

are being reissued today. We will read Hockley’s account of “Raising the

Devil” (a homunculus in a bottle) from “The Rosicrucian Seer” by John

Hamill, and then discuss our own attempt to replicate this operation. We

will discuss Hockley’s influence on the Golden Dawn and the occult

revival. So if you’d like to “Raise the Devil” with old Fred Hockley

tune in and we’ll get it on.
