Search - List of Books by William G. Gray
William G. Gray (1913-1992) was a British occultist, the founder of the magical order the Sangreal Sodality and author of many books. He wrote extensively on the topics of ritual magic, Hermetic Qabalah, the nature of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life. His focus was on the mystical unification of humanity with divinity. For Gray, the purpose of developing contact with higher beings is the joint pursuit of good and the avoidance of evil in the world and in oneself. In many of his works he places a high value on the use of magic for personal development towards these ends.

Whilst his extensive writings on Western Esoteric topics are now considered classics in their field, his major contribution to the Western mystery tradition was the development of The Rite of Light, which he officially renamed the Sangreal Sacrament after the foundation of the Sangreal Sodality. This rite is regarded as having given ritual expression to the innermost mysteries of Western esoteric orders in a way that did not limit itself to any given religious orientation.
Prior to his demise William Gray asked author Alan Richardson to write his biography. Later a collaboration between Alan Richardson and Marcus Claridge, resulted in "The Old Sod: The Odd Life & Inner Work of William G. Gray," which was published by Ignotus Press in 2003.
