|Hierophant||Hiram E. Butler|
The Genii of Nations, Knowledges and Religions (G.N.K.R.) was an occult group, organised by Hiram E. Butler, based ostensibly on the teaching of "three branches (Ethnomedom, Ekphoron, Vidya-Nyaika), the Laws of Ens, Movens, and Om, and the secrets connected therewith."

It was conceived in 1873; the child was born in 1888; the child will be able to walk in 1896, and can commence care for itself about 1900, or at least in 1907. There are three branches (Ethnomedom, Ekphoron, Vidya-Nyaika), the Laws of Ens, Movens, and Om, and the secrets connected therewith. In 1888 there was published "A Call to the 'Awakened," from 'The Unseen and Unknown,' for an Esoteric College." It is a work of 200 pages, giving details of the Order and the wants of this Society Esoteric, also the object of PANTOGNOMOS. It was born in Boston, in 1888, and is now on its feet. We think the hierophant resides in Applegate, Cal."
