Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (as Wolfgang von Goethe) appears in all versions of the saints-of-eccelsia-gnostica-catholica in Liber XV, published during Aleister Crowley's lifetime. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is not on the full list of any version, and is therefore a name celebrated only at performances when the complete Saints Collect is read.
