Who was William Blake?

Our Lodge is named after artist, writer, poet & mystic, William Blake, whose work provides a legacy reminding us that the core concepts within Thelemic philosophy have been with us far longer than merely a century, and that some of its greatest proponents lived and died long before 1904 e.v.

The Gnostic Catholic Church or E.G.C., in fact, recognizes William Blake as a notable link in that historic chain transmitting the light of the gnosis throughout the ages, and has canonized him as a gnostic saint.
