Here is a smorgasbord of texts relating to esoteric and occult beliefs. Although miniscule in comparison to even the smallest of the world religions, or even of the Neopagan community with which they are often incorrectly grouped, these groups have a huge presence on the Internet. This page archives some of the best material in this category.
Some of these texts should be taken very seriously; others are completely farcical; we mostly leave it up to the reader to decide which is which.
