2 Founding Orthodox and Catholic Madrian Orders 1973-1994



From Ordo “Lesser Known” Ekklesia Madriana, personal issue to Lady Olga Lotar, 8th Hera 3722 AE (1989). [Perhaps Lady was the honourific title given to a Madria/Priestess as the earthly representative of Kyria/our Lady Holy Daughter]. Mrs Olga Lotar became a Madrian Priestess by charisma (directly from Madria Déa/our Mother God). She then sent this to Mr. Philip P. Jackson, (author of The Sacred Myths and Rites of the Madrians). He had been “Offered to Déa” during a Rite of Sacrifice at a gathering of Ordo Lux Madriana at 40, St John Street. [At that address by dating through The Coming Age periodicals Issues 4-18 from 5th September 1977 – 19th March 1981]. Mr. Philip P. Jackson “ self-initiated himself” with the documents. Permission to use and publish by the document holder granted to present-day Déanic Priestesses. The Koré Di-Jana Order of Priestesses have copyright.

CATHOLIC: The word catholic means “universal”, therefore Madrianism is the only truly catholic religion. In every nation and area of the world, the first and original Divine revelation was Madrian, and the first religion was a form of Madrianism. As one writer put it: “In all myth throughout the world, from the sun’s rising beyond the farthest shores of Asia to its setting west of the farthest islands of the vast Pacific, the first Creator of all is a Goddess. Her names are as many and varied as the peoples whom She created and who worshipped Her as the First Principle.” It is only later, with the decline of true religion, that ANDROMORPHISM set it, and religions grew apart from the universal catholic faith of all humanity.

Including a wide variety of things; all-embracing.

Late Middle English: from Old French catholique or late Latin catholicus, from Greek katholikos ‘universal’, from kata ‘in respect of’ + holos ‘whole’.

I have researched all the ancient Greek sculptures, vase paintings and coins depicting the goddess Artemis. She is depicted standing up, seated, driving her chariot. A drawing of archery positions from photographs depicts a half knelt archery position which is only suitable with a short bow.

“It is important to note that the “esoteric” point of view is not in any sense “superior” to the “exoteric”. The latter is, of course, more immediate and more simple; but anyone who succumbs to the prevalent view that she has risen above the level of exoteric religion because she believes herself to understand something of the esoteric dimension merely proves that she is far below the level of either. Esotericism and exotericism are in no sense opposed and neither can one under any circumstances “supersede” the other. They are in all cases wholly complementary.”
