Welcome to The Virtual Library of Alexandria
The premiere media for Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and general High Weirdness. Bringing ancient mysteries to a modern meaning. Prophesizing that the world already ended and it’s time to pick up the pieces.
Aeon Byte is an initiation-by-conversation into the dark corners of myth, magic and meaning; a crash course in cult, culture and conspiracy; a virtuous virus invoking and informing history, holiness and heresy. Each week your host Miguel Conner commandeers your connection to bring the most accepted and rejected scholars and provocateurs to your attention.
One of the fastest-growing religions in the west centers on a mysterious death goddess. Her movement has been persecuted in modern times by both government and religious entities. We speculate on the heretical Santa Muerte and explore the practices, theologies, and cultural impact surrounding this mercurial folk saint. In the end, we discover that death is pregnant with so much life.
Astral Guest – Dr. Andrew Chesnut, author of Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint, and Professor of Religious Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.
