Blackden’s Ritual of the Mystery of the Judgment of the Soul was first published in 1914 by the S.R.I.A. in which Blackden, like Waite, had remained active. Undoubtedly, he saw this volume as not merely the culmination of all his previous translations and commentaries but as rather revealing the true initiatory purposes of both The Book of the Dead and the Golden Dawn cipher manuscripts.
