Randolph, occult rival of H. Paschal Beverly Randolph was an African American doctor, Rosicrucian, and occultist who introduced sex magic to North America. The founder of the Brotherhood of Eulis and a known occult rival of H. Blavatsky, he authored several books, including Eulis: The History of Love.
She is also known for her translation of P. This long overdue new translation is a very welcome addition to any collection of books on sexuality, occultism and magic. We can only hope, if people combat and remedy the removal of their souls from the actions of their bodies, it will spread to other areas of all of our lives.
Here Traxler provides an accurate translation of his most puzzling and practical text.
This text would not have existed but for the synthesizing effort of the European original, Maria de Naglowska, under whose hand this work was made manifest. This translation thankfully helps preserve both of these important and obscure figures in our sphere of knowledge. Magia Sexualis should be an incentive for further investigations into one of the most mysterious personalities in the history of sexuality and its multiple liaisons with esotericism and the occult.

Magia Sexualis: Sexual Practices for Magical Power
Price may vary by retailer. There has been much talk about him, and much heated discussion of his bizarre theories by those not initiated into them, outside of his students and secret adepts. But it has never been possible to reconstruct the personality and intimate life of this American mulatto, who trusted no one and constantly surrounded himself with absolutely impenetrable mystery.
Silence was his emblem and the watchword that he imposed on all those who approached him. Still, the few details, furnished by some of his friends, attest that this man, possessed of an unusual strength of will and a tenacious perseverance, eexualis mixed his personal life with the work to which he had consecrated himself from his youth.
He had only one goal, and never withheld from it the smallest bit of his energy: Randolph was the first who magix raised the veil covering the nudity of Isis, beverlt this bevwrly courage allowed him to proudly proclaim that the key to all the mysteries of the Universe is to be found in Sex. Randolph had begun his studies in the heart pascha, the secret society known as the H.
But, in about the yearhe founded his own initiation circle, E. Eulis Brotherhoodand, together with the doctors Fontaine and Bergevin, he examined occult data in the light of contemporary science–the mysterious, the incomprehensible, were boldly brought to the state of clear truths, controlled by strict laboratory procedures.
With science supporting and controlling the miracle, the latter became a concrete reality under certain well-determined conditions, but it looked like humbug and mgia when those conditions were not fulfilled.
A ferocious campaign was then directed at Randolph. He was accused of having betrayed the traditions, of having revealed the key of the mystery, reserved for the initiates, of having thrown pearls before swine.
Blavatsky fought him violently.
Magia Sexualis: Sexual Practices for Magical Power by Paschal Beverly Randolph
Between her and him there was one of those spiritual wars of which we have an example in the well-known case of the conflict between Peladan and Eliphas Levi. The founder of the Matia Society unleashed a sort of occult duel against Randolph, which caused, they say, the premature death of the latter. But all this agitation, visible and invisible, around the name and work of Randolph made him famous, if not rich.
His novels were read and commented upon, although often in a contradictory manner. Still, in all the books, light was not shed completely. Randolph–who in spite of what his detractors said, did not throw pearls before swine, knowing the dangers of too hasty revealing–kept the definitive keys for complete understanding of his work for the members of his circle, the Eulis Brotherhood.
The volume that we offer to the reader today pascyal some of these keys: These fragments, infinitely precious because formidably efficacious, have in addition been supplemented by some chapters, taken on the one hand sexialis the theoretical part of the Intimate Secrets of the Mysteries of Eulisand on the other, from The Magnetic Mirrornotably from the introduction to this work and from its practical part, which has still never been published.
And anyway, what do those two words mean, that even today so many not-very-enlightened persons pronounce with fear? Nothing, except a superstitious fear, remains of a long period of somber ignorance. Magic is a science, which differs from the so-called positive sciences due to the psychic and spiritual factors, which it implies just as well for the object as for the subject of the operative act.
Magic is never either white or black; but it can be benefic or malefic, according to the purpose for which one makes use of it. Magic is a weapon, and like all weapons, one can make use of it for the good or ill of oneself or another–but because it is powerful, it is obviously dangerous in unskillful hands. But magic is also a sacred and royal science in the sense that it cannot be acquired by someone who is not worthy of it; and morbid neuroses and often even madness are the share of those who give themselves to it without the requisite aptitude and preparation.
It is necessary to be armed with patience, with calm, and with a great courage to clear its first threshold, and above all, it is necessary to love this science for itself, and not for the material and personal advantages that it procures.
Randolph had these qualities and still more; that is why he became a great magician, whom all vaguely feared and envied. If he died young, pascgal his adversary, Madame H. Blavatsky, triumphantly lived bevefly a very advanced age, it is, undoubtedly, because his task on this earth was finished more rapidly than that of the founder of the theosophical movement.
