The Emperor Sun or Son

Postby Gideon Jagged » Sat Aug 09, 2014 6:16 pm

A question about the esoteric name of The Emperor.

776.5 & Liber Theta give it as "Sun of the Morning, Chief Among the Mighty"

The Golden Dawn give it as "SON of the Morning"

Has it changed or is this a typo?

Also, isn't 'Son of the Morning' a reference to Venus as the Morning Star?

I'm away from my references for awhile. What does 777 say?

And from what GD source are you finding the alternative?

My copy of Book T still says, "Sun of the Morning, chief among the Mighty"
"If we are to have Beauty and Love, whether in begetting children or works of art, or what not, we must have perfect freedom to act, without fear or shame or any falsity."

Ah, but the copy in The Golden Dawn (Israel Regardie, Llewellyn's Golden Dawn Series, 6th Edition, twelfth printing, 2005) has "Son of the Morning, chief among the Mighty."

777 has "Sun of the Morning".

I guess that's it, then. Unless that's a typo.

I have the eighth printing. it does say "sixth corrected edition, though."

Trust 777 on that one.

I'll check earlier editions of GD when I get the chance. I do know that when Llewellyn had Chris Monnastre reedit the original book, there were naturally a lot of typos that got in.

Check Equinox for the original Book T also (Liber 78). It's in Equinox 8.

Equinox 8 has "Sun of the Morning". it looks like the typo is in GD 6th edition.
