Lucifer: Reprints of H.P. Blavatsky's London Magazine
Facsimile Reprints of This Rare Magazine Available from Kessinger 

"We are about to found a magazine of our own, Lucifer. Don't allow 
yourself to be frightened: it is not the devil, into which the 
Catholics have falsified the name of the Morning Star, sacred to all 
the ancient world, of the `bringer of light,' Phosphoros, as the 
Romans often called the Mother of God and Christ. And in St. John's 
Revelation does it not say, `I, Jesus, the morning star'? I wish 
people would take this to mind, at least. It is possible that the 
rebellious angel was called Lucifer before his fall, but after his 
transformation he must not be called so...."  
H.P. Blavatsky in a letter to her sister Vera.

"Open your columns to free and fearless discussion, and do as the 
theosophical periodicals have ever done, and as LUCIFER is now 
preparing to do. The 'bright Son of the morning' fears no light. He 
courts it, and is prepared to publish any inimical contributions 
(couched, of course, in decent language), however much at variance 
with his theosophical views. He is determined to give a fair hearing 
in any and every case, to both contending parties and allow things 
and thoughts to be judged on their respective merits. For why, or 
what should one dread when fact and truth are one's only aim?" H.P. 
Blavatsky in Lucifer, October, 1887.
