TRTZ no 45 : The Occultists John Dee and Agrippa

There are words that have strong emotional hooks – Quija is one and OCCULT is another.
Often the emotional reaction each produces is the result of beliefs, attitudes and, lets be honest, prejudice.This, dear reader and listener is the focus of tonight’s show. Occultism and Occultists. We will be looking at two influential occultists and asking what all the fuss is really about.

Tonights theme is Old Nick himself…

A piece of Christian PR or something else?

The challenge we will be facing is the simple fact that so much religious hysteria surrounds any discussion of demons and devils – or The Devil him, or its, self. Much of this narrow minded view comes directly from the propganda perpetuated by some of the worlds leading religions. Afterall, the argument would go, if God is good then all of the evil in the world must be coming from somewhere.

No I’m not trying to be a Satan-Devil apologist, but it must be recognised that the notion of a ‘battle royal’ between Good (God) and Evil (Devil) does not come from the Old Testament tradition nor does Satan have a major presence and he (she/it) is certainly not Gods adversary.
