The Hermeneuticon

I just stumbled upon this really cool project:

The Hermeneuticon. These are actually a couple of projects around the Hermetic Library which are supposed to interlink the texts hosted in the library. This will eventually make the texts better accessible and will produce crosslinks which are otherwise hards to find. Since this is Wiki based, everything will be nicely searchable and hyperactive. I also see the really cool possibilty to bring your own research into print via the wikipedia “make your own book” tool.

The Webpage also hosts an Aleister Crowley Reference Desk which will be a document search tool “which allows students and researchers to execute various interesting and useful local and remote queries against a database of information built from The Libri of Aleister Crowley at Hermetic.com, which includes not only technical Thelemic Libri but also an extensive corpus of Crowley’s prose and poetry”

I think this is a great project and I am looking foreward to ts Evolution.

  1. Greetings,

    i hope you enjoy your time even though i miss our discussions ’bout god and the world. I also guess that this project should be observed about its development in the future. Thanks for this hint.
