- Author BiographyBorn in Haimhausen, Bavaria, Eckartshausen studied philosophy and Bavarian civil law in Munich and Ingolstadt. He was the author of The Cloud upon the Sanctuary (de: Die Wolke uber dem Heiligtum), a work of Christian mysticism which was later taken up by occultists. The book was given a high status in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, particularly by Arthur Edward Waite. It is known to have attracted Aleister Crowley to the Order. He joined the masonic order of the Illuminati founded by Adam Weishaupt, but withdrew his membership soon after discovering that this order only recognized enlightenment through human reason. He died in Munich at the age of 50.
