Three years later Raoul Loveday died at the Abbey. His wife Betty May claimed Crowley’s ritual caused the death of Loveday.

Later, following a story about Crowley’s activities at Thelema abbey (published on The Sunday Express), Italian fascist government deported Crowley. Currently the house is abandoned and in poor condition. Kenneth Anger in 1955 filmed some of its murals in his lost film “Thelema Abbey”.
