Quite so. It is important to preserve her writings *as writings* and
not "holy writ." One of the great occultists in history, I am told, was
Cornelius Agrippa, who wrote three books on Occult Philosophy. I read
his work in the 17th century edition in 1956-7. Some of it is good,
some of it is awful. There is no Saint Cornelius, and we do not need a
Saint Helena Blavatsky, however much we may respect her and her work.
As you say elswhere, Alexis, some may join Theosophy International
(caps. for name of org.) - maybe Richard Ihle will one day succumb!
