Anna Kingsford

From Thelemapedia

Anna Bonus Kingsford (September 16, 1846 - February 22, 1888) was one of the first female British physicians, after Elizabeth Garrett Anderson. Kingsford established Theosophy in England and was best known as an advocate of women's rights, animal rights and vegetarianism.

She obtained a medical degree in Paris in 1880. In 1883, she was made President of the Theosophical Society. She promoted a Western, Christian and Hermetic esotericism that diverged with the Oriental esotericism of H.P. Blavatsky. Kingsford claimed that she had received mystical insights in trance states and in her sleep. Her "revelations" were collected from various manuscripts and pamphlets by her collaborator Edward Maitland, and published posthumously in the book, Clothed with the Sun.
