Reviews

The Goddesses of Chaldaea, Syria and Egypt, Lawrence Durdin- Robertson. In this work the author, a member of Lux Madriana and co-founder with Olivia Robertson of the Fellowship of Isis, brings together a wide variety of legendary and traditional material. Handsomely produced with 9 illustrations by Anna Durdin- Robertson, the book is the first of a projected set which when complete will comprise eight volumes. The second, The Goddesses of India, Tibet, China and Japan is already in preparation. When completed, this should be a reference work of encyclopaediac proportions.
Published by Cesara Publications at £1.50

IMPORTANT NOTE
Lawrence Durdin-Robertson/Lord Strathloch
was NOT a member of Lux Madriana

‟Although the FOI Co-founders knew and worked with many illustrious members of the esoteric community – they were formally aligned with none of them. They gladly hosted salons and ritual with their guests, and Olivia offered guided journeys, but the FOI Co-Founders were not members of the various groups and organizations of those who visited and worked with them at the castle. Lawrence and Olivia always maintained the FOI was separate and not to be viewed as a ‟branchˮ or ‟extensionˮ of any other order.

By contrast, there were those who founded other groups or organizations and did in fact join the FOI.ˮ

Olivia Robertson writes:

‟Studying the Eleusinian Mysteries of Demeter and Persephone
(ie – God the Mother and Her sacrificial Daughter), to me
the visions of Lourdes and Fatima are a portrayal of these
dramas in actual human history.ˮ She adds ‟When a Mystery
is performed upon the earth before an earthly audience, a
new age is upon us.ˮ ***

BOOK REVIEW
The Goddesses of India Tibet China and Japan, L. Durdin-Robertson.
This is the second and latest volume in Lord Strathloch’s veritable encyclopaedia of world Goddess traditions. The key to this book is its index – some 50 pages of it. There you will be able to locate almost anything which falls broadly within the book’s fairly self-explanatory title. And the definition of ‟Goddessˮ is
here very broad indeed, including everything from demonesses, through queens and heroines, to various geniae and aspects of the Supreme Being Herself. The erudition of the work is staggering, and while most of the figures will be unfamiliar to the lay reader, the author, wherever possible, draws parallels with traditions nearer home. As a reference book its main disadvantage is that it
is almost impossible to put down once you have found what you were looking for. It contains several illustrations by Anna Durdin-Robertson, whose enchanting style is often reminiscent of Beardsley. Produced on heavy art paper and running to well over 500 pages, it is very reasonably priced at £2.00. From Cesara Pubns. Lord Strathloch is a member of Lux Madriana and co-founder with
Olivia Robertson of the Fellowship of Isis.

BOOK REVIEWS
Communion with the Goddess by Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. This series of booklets comprises the manual of the Fellowship of Isis. Five so far have been produced: ‟The Vital Elementsˮ, ‟Initiation and the Mysteriesˮ, ‟The Occasional Ritesˮ, ‟Priestessesˮ and ‟Temples of the Near and Far Eastˮ. As in his other works, Lord Strathloch’s scholarship takes us through most periods of recorded history, and most areas of the globe. Speaking rarely in his own voice, the author rather lets the writers of many times and places speak for themselves, producing a kaleidoscope vision of the worship of the Goddess from ancient Chaldaea to the Celtic revival of the 1890’s. The booklets are issued in a limited edition at £1 each. Lord Strathloch is a member of Lux Madriana.

Ordination of a Priestess by Olivia Robertson. This little book both describes and gives the full text of a Rite recently enacted at the Temple of Isis in Ireland. The title in some ways may seem misleading, for what the Rite creates is not a full vocational
[Continued on Page 28 of the PDF]
(Contd.) priestess, but what may be called a lay-priestess. The rite is not a Sacrament, but a ‟symbiosis of religion and the artsˮ.

But the idea is very much in keeping with such practices as the Cult Domestic, which makes every mother a sort of quasi-priestess in her own home. In this Rite candidates dedicating themselves to a particular Genia or aspect of the Goddess each choosing according to her own calling to service in life. They also offered their own votive gifts, ranging from craft-work to a pilgrimage to Nepal. The Rite itself, in ancient style, complete with temple-maidens, is both elaborate and beautiful, and it is to be hoped, such Rites of personal dedication become more widespread. Price 50p. Olivia is a member of Lux Madriana.
Both books from Cesara Publications.

[If one was “ordained” through Fellowship of Isis, it was not considered valid for a vocational Madrian priestess who was sacramental. 1977]

IMPORTANT NOTE the Fellowship of Isis Ministry

PREFACE

Since this Rite was first published, Archpriests and Priests have been ordained in the Fellowship of Isis Ministry. Thus this amplified ceremony is now necessary.

In the Directory of the Fellowship of Isis 1980, Volume 1, the Priesthood of the F.O.I. is described thus:

ʽAll beings are children of the Mother Goddess. Hence all are in essence Divine. Priesthood involves a voluntary acceptance of work undertaken for the Divine Plan of the Deities……… Human beings attain Priesthood in various ways. Vocation is received from the Deities. Reincarnation brings memories of previous ministry. Initiation is given through Rite or touch. Heredity gives family priesthood. Priestly authority may also be claimed through occupation, such as the Smiths with their God, Weyland Smith, the starry Blacksmith in the sky.̕

The Egyptian Priesthood was conveyed through heredity or by rites and appointment. The Priesthood of the Fellowship of Isis is hereditary in source, through the Robertsons of Strathloch. It is passed to Priestesses and Priests through the Rite of Ordination by consecration through oil. The ceremony may also be conducted through attunement at a distance through mutual arrangement. The Priestly line comes to Lawrence and Olivia Robertson from the Egyptian Princess, Scota, the dark one, the daughter of the Pharaoh ʽCincris̛̕. Scota was hereditary Daughter of Isis, through her descent from Isis and Osiris. Scota left Egypt with her Scythian husband Nel and gave her name to Scotland. The Gaelic race was named after her son, Goadhal or Gaelglas. Lawrence and Olivia Robertson derive the titles ʽPriest and Priestess Hierophant̛ from Scota in another connection. Those Princesses who did not attain the rank of Queen by marriage, filled the office, of Priestesses of the Goddess Nit or Hathor and bore in their households titles which they transmitted to their children, writes Maspero, in ʽthe Dawn of Civilization̕. Hierophant means a Guide, one who both leads and aids:

ʽAt the gates of the other world……… one often sees the dead welcomed by a Goddess who offers bread and water. The Deity who thus welcomes the dead is often Ament, Nut, Hathor, Neith or Mayet. (Veronica Ions ‘Egyptian Mythology̕̕, Genealogical Sources include Manetho, ʽLabor Gabala Erenn,̕̕ a Mediaeval source, ʽIrish Pedigrees,̕̕ O’Hart, 1979. The Robertson of Strathloch line is traced through Matriculation, Lyon Office, Edinburgh, 1907, and through Matriculation, Genealogical Office, Dublin Castle, 1979.)

Each new Priestess and Priest of the Fellowship is enrolled and presented with a certificate from Foundation Centre.

HISTORY

Communion With the Goddess, 5-8
Lord Strathloch, Cesara Publications, Huntington Castle, Clonegal, Enniscorthy, Eire. Price £1 each.

The latest 4 parts in this ongoing series deal respectively with the temples to the Goddess in the Near and Far East, Asia Minor, Greece and Italy. Temples both ancient and modern are included and all aspects are covered – architecture, history, traditions and the practices associated with them. As usual, Lord Strathloch assumes a largely editorial function, allowing authors ancient and modern to speak for themselves. Many diverse sources are drawn on to give a comprehensive reference on a subject not, as far as I know, specifically dealt with in any other work. Lord Strathloch is a member of Lux Madriana.
