Frederick of Hohenstaufen, Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor (1194 - 1250)

“In more remote times, the constituent originating assemblies of the O.T.O. included such men as: … Frederick of Hohenstaufen”—Liber LII Manifesto of the O.T.O.

Frederick of Hohenstaufen appears in all versions of the Saints of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica in Liber XV, published during Aleister Crowley's lifetime. Frederick of Hohenstaufen is not on the short list of any version, and is therefore a name celebrated only at performances when the complete Saints Collect is read.
