On The 31st October 2014 The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History opened it’s doors for the very first time to a public that for the most part did not know it was coming, and wasn’t wildly interested, since then we’ve had some 20,000 visitors from all around the world – Please Join Us To Sing ‘Happy Birthday’ This Halloween from 6:00pm
There will be Complimentary G&T’s from Hendrick’s Gin, Snakes, Lizards & Other Living Things To Pet, Some Cake & Sorcery
The Gnostic Temple of Agape
The Viktor Wynd Museum is delighted to announce that The Gnostic Temple of Agape will be relocating from its present hidden Occult location a mile outside the City walls to the more public venue of the museum’s Wunderkabinett, where visits from the uninitiated will, for the first time, be allowed.
The current custodian of The Temple, the artist Rufus White, is keen to expand the membership of the dying organisation, and hopes that a more public platform will encourage new devotees.
For hundreds, if not thousands, of years, The Temple, under the guardianship of the initiates, has been used as a place to celebrate the divine gift of love, to create spells, practice alchemy and summon angels and spirits from the other world.
The exact origins and history of The Temple are only revealed to third degree initiates, and much of the information surrounding this fascinating Cult is lost in the mists of time.
During its time in the Museum The Temple will continue to be in regular use when not open to members of the public.
A guide to The Temple and its Cult is in preparation and will probably be published early next year.
Alongside The Temple will be other items from Rufus White’s Collection of Paraphernalia & Regalia of Alchemy & the Occult.
