The Oriental Esoteric Society was established in the late 1890s by Dr. Alberto de Sarâk, the Count de Das, a controversial figure who had been expelled from the Theosophical Society by Colonel Olcott in 1892. Among the objects of the Oriental Esoteric Society, two are particularly significant: (a) to “form a chain of universal fraternity based upon the purest altruism, without hatred of sect, caste or color” and (b) “study the Occult Sciences of the Orient and . . . develop those psychic powers which are in man and his environment.”

The O.E. Library Critic was, for a time, the literary arm of the OES.
