It seems to be in some way related to the rosicrucians and also deals with practices related to the supernatural or spiritual. uk/2011/06/20/review-gothic-magic/ Episode 113: Netta Fornario This week Emma brings us the mysterious story of Netta Fornario, who was found dead on the isle of Iona in November 1929. She was described as being of a cheerful, happy disposition, but prone to embarking on mad whims, such as announcing to her housekeeper that she was going to fast for 40 days (she sensibly stopped after a fortnight). She was found naked, apart from a black cloak, lying on a large cross that had been cut from the turf with a knife that was close at hand.

He disputes the whole Mrs McRae character, and says that there is no evidence such a person ever existed.

Greg Powrie plays John with a certain stiffness that fits the period, and convincingly unravels as a doctor who cannot love, cures rather than heals and has his own guilty secret.

No police investigation was carried out as the presiding physician noted the cause of death as heart failure from exposure. She claimed that they were a response to psychic attacks from the former leader of the Alpha et Omega Temple, Moina Mathers. In his memoirs, Aleister Crowley also claimed to have been a victim of a psychic attack, and also said he had done battle with someone on the astral plane. A cross had been cut into the turf with a dagger (which was found nearby) and Netta’s body was lying on top of it. There was no police investigation, nor was there any advanced pathology performed beyond the limited expertise of the island authorities.This may indeed be a case of a young woman, ignorant of the deadly effects of high winds and freezing temperatures, becoming lost and confused during a dark night on an isolated Scottish island.

Some years after the end of World War 1, she decides to take a spiritual pilgrimage of sorts to the Scottish Island of Iona. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. From stories of new age magic, otherworldly realms, alchemy and psychic abilities, all practised in shady back rooms of the temples belonging to secretive societies, our imaginations have often run wild, crossing victorian gothic aesthetic with the lure of a shadowy underworld. Her mother died when she was just a year old, at which time her father sent her to live with her maternal grandfather, a prosperous tea importer.

It is during this period that she became closely acquainted with another of Moriarty’s students, Dion Fortune. After Netta’s death the housekeeper was quoted in the press as saying that several times Netta had said “she had been to the far beyond, and had come back to life after spending some time in another world”. Columba first dragged his wicker coracle ashore in 563, it has been known as the ‘cradle of Christianity’, a place of pilgrimage. In 1929, Netta Fornario came to the small Scottish island of Iona for a break from the hectic pace of London city life. With new insight into Netta's background and intuition leading the way, a personal interest develops into compelling argument.

Suicidally overwhelmed by his experience in the Field Ambulance Service during The Great War, Tyler has come to the Island determined either to make a new beginning or to end his life. These companies are brought together and the production funded by North by North-East, the Northern Scottish Touring Fund, and the tour within Argyll and Shetland is funded by Scotland’s Islands 2011. Throughout the action, waves crash on the stony beach, rain batters on the window and creepy sounds create the spine-tingling mood of uncertainty that pervades the play.As the island didn't have a coroner, a local with some medical experience tried to establish a cause of death. There is also the question of why that cross had been carved and why she just happened to have been found on a fairy mound. There is something weird happening, a quiet muttering in the background and an eerie light on the simple set. Beautiful and extraordinary, he is unable to resist Netta or the equally intriguing Mrs Blacklock, and as Netta's health and sanity appear to deteriorate Tyler is drawn into a world of magic, revenge and terrible secrets that lead to love, tragedy and ultimate redemption.
