Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers (1854-1918) was a prominent scholar and leader of the occult revival of the Western Mystery Tradition in Britain in the late 1800s. A life-long fascination with mysticism and Celtic symbology led him to hold high office in the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (Rosicrucian Society of England), where he met Dr. William Wynn Wescott and Dr. William Woodman. With these two he co-founded the the influential Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. MacGregor Mathers also published The Kabbalah Unveiled (1907; reissued Weiser, 1970), The Grimoire of Armadel (first English translation 1980; reissued Weiser 1995), and The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage (1898; reissued Dover 1975). He also wrote The Tarot, a history and discusson of reading the Marseilles deck (1888; reissued Weiser 1969).
