This chapter considers Crowley's Masonic contacts. It tries to separate the facts from the numerous myths that surround Crowley and Freemasonry. In the next section, it studies Crowley's relationship with Freemasonry, which parallels his differing views of himself as the Great Wild Beast 666, the great magician and prophet, and the decent British gentleman. It also considers how Freemasonry allowed him to become a part of the respected establishment of British society.
