The Beast Bay

The Beast Bay is the newest section at the Hermetic Library.

While I was working on the guest site for David Richard Jones, I ran into a few documents Jones had posted to The Beast Bay back in the day, so started trying to track down who had run the site. I managed to get in touch with Michael Sanborn, aka Xnoubis, and get permission to recover an authorized and official archive of the old site.

Take a gander at the site, and you will see postings by quite a few names you may recognize, several guests at the Hermetic Library among them, to name only a couple: David Richard Jones and T Polyphilus.

There are still a couple posts missing, and a few things left to fix in the presentation, but most of the material is there. I’ll keep working at it, and if you notice anything amiss do let me know. But, enjoy taking a trip back in time to this historically interesting online forum!

The Scholarly Enochian Of David R. Jones

There are a couple of sections in David Richard Jones’ Invisible College which are a collection of texts. The mouse over text for one section calls itself “The Scholarly Enochian Of DAVID R. JONES” but there are actually three subdirectories in this one to explore.

The first section is indeed a collection of texts and graphics by David Richard Jones. But, there is also a directory of work by Michael Sanborn, the founder of the late Beast Bay site, which contains The Ritual of the Emerald Throne. The third directory in this section is apparently one that contains discussions about Gardnerian Wicca’s Rede, which is a recurring topic of discussion even still.

Well, you may want to check the files in these sections. Not only are they a hint at some future expansions in the works for the collection at the Hermetic Library (Oh, can you gather from this post what they are?), this section is an interesting and informative snapshot of some historical Enochian and esoteric work online done by David Richard Jones and others.
