Helena Petrovna Blavatsky: intellectual, adventurer, occultist, and fraud.

Madame Blavatsky, as she was often called, was a co-founder of Theosophy, an esoteric late nineteenth-century movement that combined aspects of mystical and magical beliefs with bits and pieces of eastern philosophies bound up in Hindu and Buddhist teachings. Given Theosophy's central role in bringing Asian religious traditions to western cultures, she became known as the godmother of the New Age movement.
