Happy birthday to our favorite adept,
He was born on December 1, 1909 in Czechoslovakia and lived quite a colorful life until he died in prison on July 10, 1959. Most of the information about Bardon’s life comes from the novel ”Frabato the Magician,” which is a fictionalized autobiography compiled from outlines, notes, and correspondences with his secretary and student Otti Votavova. Legend has it that Bardon had been previously incarnated as Hermes Trismegistos. When Bardon was 14, a spirit manifested itself into Bardon’s form and brought with it all the knowledge of hermetics. http://www.franzbardon.com/aboutfranzbardon.html
