THE WITCHBLOOD GRAIL: The Second Volume in the Trilogy, The Way of Sacrifice by Mark Alan Smith (Signed, Sigilized and Consecrated Limited Edition)

Dragon Flame Edition: 999 volumes of superior quality hand-bound in luxurious Red Lynnel Thermo Ibis, finished with double thickness endpapers. Both covers blocked in white gold with the Gateway of The Dragon-flame Grail and the seal of The Infernal Serpent. Blood-red silk ribbon marker. The books will be beautifully fashioned with rounded spines whose head and tail bands are braced with bamboo cane that is hand-inserted during the binding process.
All copies will be hand-numbered, sigilized, signed and concecrated.
The Blood of The Goddess pours from the Witch Grail, as gnosis is revealed in sacrifice, en-fleshing the Dragon’s bones. The Gates of the Devil’s Throne open within Belial’s Earth for devoted souls of the Trident to feast upon Hecate’s Kalas, ignited in Lucifer’s Flame, as the Great Daughter conjoins with the Body of the Beast to align inner and material planes. This is the dawn of the Apocalyptic Aeon of the Light-bearer – the Age of Revelation.
THE DRAGON BOOK OF ESSEX by Andrew Chumbley (Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition in Custom Slipcase)
Deluxe Edition: Limited to 196 hand-numbered copies, full gilt-blocked goatskin, special endpapers, silk ribbon bookmarker, with slipcase

From the publisher:

This substantial work expounds the sorcerous ethos and praxes of the Crooked Path ritual system. Its contents include a cycle of ten extensive Mystery-rites, each accompanied by adjunctive solitary rituals and detailed commentaries. Additional texts relate the intricacies of Sabbatic ritualization, as well as an extensive body of stellar lore and ritual. The Sorcerous Formulae of Number and Sign are also communicated, together with detailed exegeses of the Quadriga, the specific covine-type of the Crooked Path. A detailed section on the Magical Weapons of the Draconian Sorcerer complements the text. This work is intended as an entire resumé of the ancestral and ophidian components of Traditional Craft Sorcery and Sabbatic Gnosis. The Dragon Book of Essex originally comprised a portion of the rites and practices of an inner conclave of the Cultus Sabbati known as The Column of the Crooked Path.

Following the Azoëtia, The Dragon Book of Essex represents the second work of Chumbley’s three-book magical opus the Trimagisterion. From this period of work, Chumbley formulated ‘Crooked Path Sorcery’ as a trans-historical magical model, operant in a number of systems of sorcery, most notably in the witchcraft of his native Essex. The Crooked Path may be seen to mirror the zoötype of the Serpent, wending between such magical antipodes as blessing and cursing, honour and treachery, Tabu and its breaking. Its quintessential nature is transgressive, and through this apostasy, the illuminant fire of the Serpent descends.

Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual by Michael Idehall (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)
One of only 50 hand numbered leather bound deluxe editions

The vestments of old ages will wither along the road of pilgrimage, and newborn flesh will house the smokeless flame of gnosis. And thus a new book may have and old heart, and the songs of my mothers will be sung by foreign throats. -Oracle of Heb á Qual

The Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual constitutes a contemporary exploration of the grimoire known as The Treasure of the Old Man of the Pyramids, executed by means of sorcerous reification in order to present the mysteries that veil the heart of a book of power.

New incantations complement the twenty reworked talismans, and a transmission of sigils for entering into the tutelage of the Sentinel of this liber spiritum has been appended to the more traditional content.
FOSFOROS translated by J. Nefastos (Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition)
This is one of only 55 deluxe bound in leather limited editions this being number “13”

One of the most intellectually sophisticated and in-depth texts of modern Satanism/ Left Hand Path and its spirituality ever produced. This valuable occult study delves the student of the Left Hand Path into a comprehensive philosophical system providing a Study on the Being & Essence of Satan, exploring topics such as the Philosophy of God, Philosophical Anthropology, Eschatology, Metaphysics, Cosmology, and various other subjects of Satanism and Mysticism that will guide the serious seeker to form a complete worldview. With the aim of total unity and of understanding opposites, considering even the most wrathful arguments of the downward path of the soul’s death in an unbiased way, Fosforos seeks to build on the fundamental doctrine of Oneness: the quintessences of both the Right Hand Path and the Left Hand Path are herein joined into one amalgam, as they have always been in the heart of a true aspirant.

Gullveigarbok by Vexior (Deluxe Signed Leather Edition)
Extra high quality paper and finished with black endpapers, fully illustrated with several presentations of Gullveig in her different incarnations and with a fold-out chart of the Underworld. Hand-bound and sewed in high quality maroon leather with a cloth bookmark.

From the publisher:

Gullveig is the Teutonic and Germanic highest feminine principle of darkness – the maid, the mother, and the crone: Gullveig’s traits are analogous to Lilith’s and Hecate’s. In the Old Norse Mythology she is the sinister arch- mother of the giants and the black arts; she’s also the divine feminine manifestation of the analogue thursian purpose.

THE BOOK OF SITRA ACHRA by N.A-A.218 (Deluxe Talismanic Edition, Bound in Python with Custom Traycase)

 Deluxe bound in python skin, traycased talismanic edition in custom traycase. Special covenant booklet and talisman python bookmark are also included. One of only 61 copies produced
Published by IXAXAAR
Book is in unread condition
One of only 61 copies published this being copy 54.

From the publisher:

The Book of Sitra Achra is the first complete and completely Qliphothic Grimoire, providing the foundation for a Spiritual and Transcendental Initiatic approach towards the Other Side. Within the system and Tradition presented inside this book the very essential core of the Current 218 is for the first time ever made public, dispelling both the smoke screens and the misconceptions surrounding the Anti-Cosmic Tradition of Gnostic Satanism/Luciferianism, providing to those that hear and heed the Voiceless Call of Azerate the means for the entering and traversing of the Path of Black Fire, towards the Thrones of the Dragons of the Other Side.

The Tradition outlined in this Grimoire is in some of its aspects pertaining to the symbolism employed based on certain for us fundamental concepts derived from the Heresy of Sabbatai Zevi, as transmitted by the prophet Nathan of Gaza, such as the dichotomy between the Cosmic Light of Creation and the Anti-Cosmic Light of the Qliphothic Impulse. While this most important concept imbues the whole Work, the Tradition presented within this book takes the matter far deeper towards the Side of Qliphoth than what the Sabbatian traditions ever had or would, until a Gnostic form of Anti-cosmic Satanism/ Luciferianism emerged perfectly suited for the Embodiment of the Current 218, not with the goal of separation and isolation from the True Divinity, like what most other forms of the so called “satanic” or “Left Hand Path” traditions seem to advocate and strive for, but instead setting as the highest goal to indeed merge and become as one with the Unbound Essence of Divinity in the Fullness of the Emptiness of Ain, beyond all limitations, illusions and finite duality.

The Book of Sitra Achra – A Grimoire of the Dragons of the Other Side provides in an unapologetic manner insight into one of the most maligned and vilified traditions, in order to shed the Light of Truth on the most controversial aspects of the Current 218 in order to both guide the sincere seekers of the Black Light and at the same time dispel those misguided and/or misguiding individuals who in a profane manner have or would approach the Anti-Cosmic Tradition for all the wrong reasons, mistaking it for all those things that it in actuality opposes and serves to eliminate.

The Qliphothic Path outlined in this Grimoire is not to be connected to any other system that has been made public so far and is in its approach and essence a totally unique form of Initiatic Ceremonial Magic, stretching from this to the Other Side, establishing the pathways and gates through which the adept may strive to become as one with the Eleven-Headed Ruler of the Tree of Wisdom, Unfated Death and Liberation from all cosmic limitation.

May the Spirits belonging to the Other Divinity find within this Grimoire the Black Light that shall guide their steps through this world of White Darkness towards the Kelim-Shattering Illumination of the Thoughtless Crown of the Dragon.

Published by IXAXAAR
Book is in unread condition
One of only 60 copies published this being copy 22.

From the publisher:

The manuscript is bound in goatskin (the Goat as a totemic animal stands for independence and surefootedness), the sigil of Thursacross blind stamped on the cover, a leather envelope has been placed inside the manuscript for the safekeeping of the talisman, die-cut runes decorate the inner flaps. Front flap is shaped into form of Thurs-rune, and the leather envelope is modelled into shape of U-rune to let the outer form of this talismanic edition also present its inner qualities and through such manifesting bless the new seeker on the Thursian Path with wisdom, strength, and Power.

Volume I is the first book of in this set of Thursatru Grimoires and presents outline for the foundation in Thursatru Tradition. This book will be for the Seekers of the Giant’s Path; those that seek the ancient wisdom through the experience and Illumination of the forces of Chaos. The main topics in this series of books will focus spiritual workings, rune mysteries, practical sorcery, High Thursian Magic, religious aspects and worship of the divinity of Nifl and Muspell, interpretation and understandings of the Norse mythology and gigantology, Hel-workings, synthesis of pre-Christian Norse, gnostic and LHP perspectives, lycanthropy and different forms of shape-shifting within the Hamr-workings and much more, manifesting a practical path of the religio-sorcerous cult of the titanic forces referred to as Thurses. Thursatru is a new progeny of the old pre-Christian Norse religion, mythology and gigantology, serving here to manifest the impulses striving to overthrow the limitations of cosmic creation. The first book will be an offering and dedication to the primordial powers beyond the ordered universe. May the Flames of Surtr be the essence of this forthcoming book and the Poisonous Blood of Aurgelmir flow as and through its ink.

Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis by Gilles De Laval (Special Devotee Edition Bound in Goatskin 1 of 21)
Only 21 copies produced!!!
(Deluxe Devotee Edition bound in goatskin individually hand numbered copies)

Published by Aeon Sophia Press
Book is in “NEW” unread condition

192 pages, 120 grams paper book block
One of only 21 hand numbered copies.

From the publisher:

“The book is a complete system of initiation and ascension in the grades of The Priesthood of the Shadows of Death, an order of predatory sorcerors who specialize in the practice of energy vampirism and in the necromantic conjuration of revenant phantom shades from the eleven hells of the Qliphoth.

The system is based on meticulous research into the eleven tribes of Canaan, enemies of the Right-Hand Path who esoterically represent eleven classes of hostile, predatory vampiric shadow forms who emanate from hells of black magick and the anti-world of death. Multiple levels of correspondences and esoteric enumerations are given as well as conjuration sigils and numerous seals and illustrations so that the initiate can ritually evoke not only these necromantic shades, but their ruling princes.

The grimoire, when studied and used properly, allows brave magicians to ascend in exotic spheres of consciousness and power by communion with and transmogrification by these venomous Lords of the Abyss. Included are various lists of attributes of vampirism, the four stages of initiation, four grades of mastery, tables of days, hours, and elemental and planetary correspondences suitable for infernal conjuration, and complete descriptions of the panoply, implements and rites of vampiric necromancy that comprise the order of Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis.”

Glossary
Addendum

An amazing work. Arbor de Magistro is the culmination of over a decade of intensive practical application. It is first and foremost a grimoire, a handbook for those seeking guidance into the realms of Aethyric evocation, but it also contains initiations. These initiations follow the premise that the Third Order work be devised by the Student. And, while anyone can proclaim themselves as a Magister, this book provides a glimpse into a formula devised based on an in-depth study of Thelema and Golden Dawn. The system presented in this volume uses the Enochian Aethyrs, which are regions of consciousness making up the known universe. Traditional evocation does not utilize the Aethyrs, nor does classical Enochian make use of the circle and triangle of Art. In this system though the magician makes use of all these tools. The final goal behind Arbor de Magistro is to provide a new system of evocation fusing Enochian (Aethyrs) and Solomonic Magick (Goetia)…

 

Lyrics of Lilith, Songs of Samael: The Serpent Siddur of the Nachash El Acher by Matthew Wightman (Deluxe Leather Bound Edition with Bonus Extra Book)

DELUXE Edition limited to 50 copies total.

With the deluxe edition comes a special booklet containing additional text which is not revealed with the standard editions!

‘Lyrics of Lilith, Songs of Samael: The Serpent Siddur of the Nachash El Acher’ by Matthew Wightman

This is a single tome consists of the 2 books together.

Synopsis:

Lyrics of Lilith, Songs of Samael: The Serpent Siddur of the Nachash El Acher is a devotional work dedicated to the anti-cosmic Current 61; the Current of Ain as Impossibility and of the embodiment of the desire for Impossibility: the Nachash El Acher, Samaelilith. It represents the Wisdom of the Serpentborn, the Children of Enoch, led by our Master Qayin. It establishes a daily routine of prayers to be read and reflected upon in order to stimulate the reception of Serpentine Gnosis.

Included are instructions for creating and using ritual implements: such as the Skin of the Serpent Prayer Shawl, Serpentine Phylacteries and Rosary, and Klifotic Ketoret, each a potent tool connecting one to the Work of the Nachash El Acher.

Having been Commissioned by and with the Blessings of Beelzebub before the Tower Nihilifer, the work guides the practitioner through Morning, Afternoon, and Evening prayers, which both praise our Other God and Curse the Demiurge, as well as contains devotionals for before and after meals and Sacred occasions. It also contains invocations/prayers to the Klifotic Elohim, and offers a discussion of Holidays and Festivals within the Current of the Nachash.

The work is prefaced by a theological exploration of the Nachash El Acher and the Atzmutic reality that the Nachash resists. Additionally, the work contains a second compendium volume, providing the reader with all seven of my published essays as well as an interview with Johan of Aeon Sophia Press that delves deeper into my thought and the praxis of the Current.

 

BLACK MAGIC EVOCATION OF THE SHEM HA MEPHORASH by G. de Laval (Bound In Full Goatskin Leather Deluxe Edition)

 

Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash’ by G. de Laval
(Devotee Edition: Full goatskin. Limited to 12 copies)

Book is in new unread condition

Full goatskin bound
Adorned with gold foil sigils to spine and front cover
Limited edition of 12 exemplars

Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash is an exhaustive treatment of the Shem ha Mephorash, a composite cipher of 72 trigrammatons embodying sentient energy currents that carry information between the universe of the Sephiroth and its distorted anti-world of demonic antagonism, the Qliphoth. Each of these spirits are treated with exhaustive and meticulous detail, provided in the larger context of their intricate network of correspondences with other spirits, and are presented for the first time within a usable framework of black magick evocation. Necromancers and conjurers are given the tools needed to summon these exarchs in the service of demonic exorcism, goetic theurgy and ceremonial infernal necromancy, using a ceremonial model whereby the Demiurge of the Old Testament – who represents man’s conception of the ineffable absolute – is ritually vivisected into 72 pieces. Each dismembered segment of infinity can then be summoned in the service of the will of the serious student of infernal rites of evocation in a number of ways, from personal meditation on their function, energy, and relation to the universe of occultism, to formal ritual necromantic conjuration and subsequent assimilation as living power words whose energy can be discharged through use of their names and Qliphothic anti-names, both of which are provided. .

Black Magic Evocation of the Shem Ha Mephorash is a practical guide for invoking/evoking the 72 angels of the Shem Ha Mephorash. The 72 angelic names are derived from the book of Exodus, chapter 14, verses 19-21. Each of the three passages contain 72 Hebrew letters totaling 216, the secret name of Creation. When arranged in three rows one can obtain the Hebrew trigrammatons for the 72 angels of the Shem Ha Mephorash. Each angel is an aspect of the greater whole, or specific “energy current”, and has its own positive and negative counterparts, like different sides of the same coin. When working with the benefic angels one adds the suffix ‘El’ (אֵל – meaning ‘might of God) or ‘Yah’ (יָה – meaning ‘mercy of God’) to create a five-lettered holy name. This work deals primarily with the malefic angels which are signified by their three-lettered names, sans the divine power attribute ‘El’ or ‘Yah’. These are the qliphotic shells, the negative aspects of the angels of the Shem Ha Mephorash. This book is a compendium of those angels’ attributes, seals, and various correspondences: planetary,elemental, numerical, magical timing, and tarot associations.

 

SEFER YEROCH RUACHOT by G. de Laval (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

One of only 50 leather bound hardcover copies. 300 pages, 120 grams paper book block
full leather bound hardcover, adorned with gold foil lettering to spine and front cover stamp. Book is in new unread condition

From the publisher:

Sefer Yeroch Ruachot is an exhaustive treatise of 27 lunar spirits whose names form a complex cipher that is an explicit name of Satan, a previously unknown Shem ha Mephorash system pertaining to Satan, the opposer, the antagonist of the right-hand-path complex of Abrahamic religions. The demons of this grimoire, complete details of their alchemical construction, their relationship with dozens of other entities, conjurations seals and alchemical spirit signatures, as well as a full ritual system of working with them, is included. This work is the third installment of grimoires touching upon the world of greater Shem ha Mephorash entities: the book “Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash” and “The Explicit Name of Lucifer” are the first two books in the series, of which this work will be the largest and most comprehensive member so far with more than 300 pages in Royal book size, including 28 illustrations and countless sigils and mandalas.

 

THE GREEN BOOK by Heliophilus (Limited Edition Hardcover)

Limitation  666 standard hardback & 69 fine bound exemplars 
Dimensions  crown 4to, 246 × 189 mm
Extent  208 pp
Illustrations  Illuminated with over 80 colour photographs of the work; original iconography of The Plant Phoenix and The Homunculus by Oliver Liebeskind
Binding Standard edition bound in grey batiste cloth stamped in gold, sunken panel, embossed green endpapers:
Alchemy Rising: The Green Book is the first in a projected trilogy by the alchemist Heliophilus that aims to unveil the Sacred Art. Alchemy is the central pillar of Hermeticism, essential for both understanding and undertaking the magical work of the Western tradition, which is steeped in its symbolism. As such, the initiatory lessons of this opening volume comprise a valuable addition to the library and laboratory of alchemist, herbalist, magician or witch.
    The Green Book is concerned with plant alchemy, how to practically confect spagyrical Tinctures, Elixirs, the true Primum Ens, Plant Magisteries and the Quintessence. Also covered are the Plant Stone of Hollandus, the Plant Phoenix, the Quintessence of Blood and the Homunculus. It constitutes a complete programme of practical works from the occult laboratory of a modern day spagyricist.
   Alchemy is often thought to be impenetrable, breaking the lances of those who challenge it. The Green Book enables the reader to engage in the quest, building on key principles and cumulative experiments. The processes Heliophilus discloses follow the works of the alchemical tradition, and those of Paracelsus in particular, from whose extensive writings he has extracted the virtue, and adumbrated with his own working notes and photographic documentation.
    Recipes and methods of working are given, and compared with those of Jean Dubuis, Mary Anne Atwood, Frater Albertus, Joseph Lisiewski, Van Helmont, Crollius, John French, Hollandus, Sibly and others, to indicate a path for the seeker to pursue in their own practic. The inclusion of copious folk magical receipts and sympathetic cures (including the rare weapon salve), in addition to the elixirs, tinctures, essences et cetera, make this volume a veritable treasure, showing both the philosophical theories and folk magical influences that informed his guide Paracelsus.
   The alchemical creations are produced in the laboratory and the field, extracted and perfected from the virtues of the plants growing in his native Shropshire in England. The third part of the book consists of a carefully selected Herbarium, along with guidance on the gathering and uses of plants as healing remedies for body and soul. It is a work that will potentise the philtres of the herbalist or witch and will give depth to the practice of the magic of the grimoires. The Green Book will teach you the art of distillation, how to separate the pure from the impure, and instruct in the foundational laboratory experience that will allow us to unlock the higher kingdoms.

LIBER NIGRI SOLIS by Victor Voronov (Limited Edition Hardcover)

Limited to 540 hand-numbered copies only: bound in full ivory cloth, black front embossing, black lettering on spine. Book is in near fine condition and looks to have never been read.

Bibliographic details: 165×235 mm, 288pp, 10 full page halftone illustrations, numerous further illustrations.

All books are printed and bound in Germany; our auric editions are produced to the highest standards of German Handwerkstradition.

Liber Nigri Solis, edited by Victor Voronov, elaborates the occult, magical and initiatory work of two esoteric orders. Presenting the aeonic history, mythic imagery, and arcane aesthetics of the Black Sun along with its alchemical and astrological aspects and significances, this opus includes a concise though multi-faceted esoteric system in theory and practice suitable for work with the Black Sun on microcosmic, mesocosmic, and macrocosmic levels. It will enable solitary practitioners and occult colleagues alike to cultivate the Gnosis of the Sol Niger through self-initiatory workings, rites, and operations of sinister alchemy.

The reader will be provided with eighteen keys which open the nine Infernal Gates and the nine Gates of Radiant Darkness, ultimately leading to the vision of the Black Sun, which radiates twelve Crooked Paths that cross the nine Thresholds. The text also expounds significant concepts such as the Fivefold Unmanifest or the Grand Chymical Conjunction of the arcane Black Suns that unveils the fiery gates of the Inverse Opus. Beyond researches concerning the sunspot cycle and cosmological considerations pertaining to Indo-Iranian mythology, substantial theoretical and operative material concerning plague-magic and epidemics has been included.

Liber Nigri Solis is a truly controversial grimoire and whether one agrees or not with all of its antinomian gnosis and sinister strategies, the uniqueness, sophistication and otherworldly power of its system is undeniable.

Lavishly illustrated with artwork commissioned especially for this book, Liber Nigri Solis also features a fascinating, elaborate introduction by Dr. Eva Kingsepp of Stockholm University.

 

The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals by Anton Szandor LaVey (Two Classics Bound in One Hardcover Special Edition)

In this special edition, both books are bound together in a single, high-quality, hardcover combined volume issued to coincide with the 50th year of the existence of the Church of Satan.  Suitable for such a commemoration, the book is bound in black with silver foil stamping and wrapped in a traditional high gloss black bookjacket.
Anton LaVey founded the Church of Satan in 1966, published The Satanic Bible in 1969 and followed that with The Satanic Rituals in 1972.  Both books have become increasingly popular due to the non-stop half-century publication of the paperback version, yet the hardcover versions have not been printed again in decades.  Hardcover editions of these books have become extremely rare collectors items, nearly impossible to find and extremely expensive.  If you can find them, hardcover versions of The Satanic Bible or The Satanic Rituals range in price anywhere from hundreds to more than a thousand dollars.
At long last, The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals are once again available in a hardcover format.  This hardcover Combined Special Edition is available by special arrangement with Harper Collins and William Morrow publishing.
Occlith 0: Omniform By Joseph Uccello (Deluxe Limited Edition Hardcover)
Deluxe Limited edition hardcover of only 111 hand numbered copies bound in full black mohair with marbled endpapers, plus bonus CD. Book is in fine unread conditionSince 1992, Xoanon and its sister publishing house Three Hands Press have pioneered the art of occult publishing, their practice driven by the philosophy that a truly magical book transcends the medium of its material embodiment. In part, this has been achieved through sublime qualities of exceptional content and artistry: original text, image, and type design which are undeniably possessed by the inspiring spirits which animate the volume. In the most potent of instances, the book coalesces by a hidden and vital anatomy, whose heart pulsates with life. Historically, the phenomenon of the magical book has appeared at the confluence of magic, mysticism, artistic inspiration and high craftsmanship. Nowhere is this as evident or beguiling as in the corpus of European alchemical texts, created in the ascendancy of movable type, where individual spiritual revelation came to inform both how the Royal Art of Alchemy was understood, and how books were made.In collaboration with The Viatorium Press, and in the spirit of furthering the modern tradition of the Magical Book, we are pleased to announce Occlith Omniform 0 from award-winning artist, typographer and printer Joseph Uccello. Containing essential texts of the Paracelsian School of Alchemy, the whole serves as an animated sourcebook of essential Hermetic philosophy and Natural Magic, vivified through the letterpress-inspired type design and Uccello’s masterful ink and brush drawings. In addition to the lavishly-illustrated alchemical texts, Omniform includes an essential lexicon of alchemical terms, and an original Introduction by Uccello serves as the portal of ingress into this Corporeal Book.
FOSFOROS translated by J. Nefastos & I. Meinander (First edition Hardcover)
One of the most intellectually sophisticated and in-depth texts of modern Satanism/ Left Hand Path and its spirituality ever produced. This valuable occult study delves the student of the Left Hand Path into a comprehensive philosophical system providing a Study on the Being & Essence of Satan, exploring topics such as the Philosophy of God, Philosophical Anthropology, Eschatology, Metaphysics, Cosmology, and various other subjects of Satanism and Mysticism that will guide the serious seeker to form a complete worldview. With the aim of total unity and of understanding opposites, considering even the most wrathful arguments of the downward path of the soul’s death in an unbiased way, Fosforos seeks to build on the fundamental doctrine of Oneness: the quintessences of both the Right Hand Path and the Left Hand Path are herein joined into one amalgam, as they have always been in the heart of a true aspirant.Fosforos begins with the principle of absolute unity in its first part, Polyharmonia- The Philosophy of Oneness. The second part, Discordamelior- The Philosophy of Perdition discusses the fundamental problem of seeming duality, the breach within the cosmic harmony, manifesting itself as Evil. In the third part, Necrosophia – The Philosophy of Death, the almost collapsed and already rotten state of the world we know is observed as leading towards purifying Death and Rebirth. The fourth part, Pentagrammaton – The Consistency of Man and the Practice of Magic, turns its attention towards the microcosm and man as the demiurge, capable of harnessing his mental prowess for the work of very deep and real magical creation. It also explores how this hermetic and metaphysical worldview can be studied with a rational mindset. The fifth part, Cista Mystica – The Symbology of Satanism, introduces several important Satanic themes and symbols, like Demonology, the problem of universal paradox and suffering, and the prophesied coming of the Antichrist. The last of the book’s parts, Legifer & Clavis Magica, gives us a law and scheme to reach out for a higher and more permanent kind of self-realization and occult development, along with the key or Magic formula with which to utilize that development with the aid of Prayers and Spells both in the work of theurgy or the Divine Magic and Goetia or the magic worked with the aid of Elemental or, as they are called, Demonic powers.The translation is based on the revised Finnish edition, including the commentary given in the form of extensive footnotes and forming “the seventh book” of Fosforos. Also included is an appendix giving a brief and clear definition of the Hieroglyphic Key of the Seven Principles, and another concerning the post-mortem states of a human being.The six different parts of Fosforos each approach from a different perspective the core ideas of the text, namely Satan and the Occult science of Magic. Despite its paradoxical and labyrinthine manner of expression, often using totally opposing arguments to understand and live for the great whole, Fosforos is not written to be just another theoretical study of the Left Hand Path, philosophical treatise, or Satanic Manifesto, but rather is a work for devotional and practical living, should the reader choose to aspire on this narrow path of Ascension.

This is a first edition hardcover of only 1300 copies. Book is in near fine condition in like dust jacket.

BOOK OF MAGIC by Anon (Herbert Irwin) (Deluxe Limited Edition Hardcover in Custom Slipcase) PREORDER

Undoubtedly one of the most important esoteric books to be published this year!!!  This book sold out in pre-order from the publisher and no other edition is planned.  Reserve your copy of this title while you can as these will increase if value quickly when released in the next few months.

One of only 196 copies being published and the publisher sold out pre-publication.
Limited edition consisting of three components held together in slipcase:
Facsimile of Manuscript. Hardback in full calf leather binding incorporating skrying mirror. 416pp coloured pages (of which 209pp are blank) It is clearly stated to be the book of the Fratres Lucis and is bound to match the appearance of the book as Herbert envisaged and drew it in the frontispiece of the manuscript. All edges are hand gilded, thus avoiding the too shiny gaudiness of machine gilding. Leather joint, decorated endpapers. The front cover has a real satin silk doublure (a traditional bookbinding device, a panel of silk set into the inside of the boards). Inset into the doublure on the front board is a reproduction of a sigil from the book which features an eye within concentric circles. The actual eye itself if formed with a portion of paper from the original manuscript, so as to create a magical link with the original. In a recess of the doublure on the rear board is set a glass magic mirror, to facilitate the practitioner’s access to the mindspaces from whence this book arose. The black mirror’s convex design follows Herbert Irwin’s recommendations in the book. The full colour facsimile is a very high quality reproduction and is designed to have the same appearance as original manuscript, rather than modern shiny photographs of it. The manuscript was completed in 1874 and this facsimile utilises a specifically Victorian binding method called gutta percha, then used for upmarket art books. However, modern materials are used that solve the longevity issues that resulted in the binding method being discontinued in the early 20th Century.
Transcript. Hardback cloth binding. Typeset as in the original 408pp (of which 205 are blank), and also gives translations of the occasional Latin. It also reproduces all the illustrations so the text can be seen in context, but is in monochrome. There is no decoration to the cover, so visually it merges with the slipcase. Herbert Irwin’s handwriting is not always easily read. As can be seen from these images, the transcript overcomes this issue.
Talismans in Folder. Talismans from the manuscript. They can be removed from the recesses in which they are held, for ease of use by the practitioner. As with the transcript, for aesthetic reasons there is no decoration to the cover. When in position, the talismans are framed by a gilt border. The manuscript states that the talismans should be made either of pure gold or drawn on parchment. Inspired by this, these are blocked in pure gold on vellum (the terms vellum and parchment were used interchangeably in the 19th Century).
Context:
The roots of the Golden Dawn are complex and have been much debated, and will be much discussed in the future as new evidence emerges. It is undisputed, though, that Major F.G.Irwin was an important player in the pre-Golden Dawn occult milieu. One narrative* has it that Kenneth Mackenzie brought the Fratres Lucis to British shores founding Temple No.1. Major Irwin then headed the Hermanoubis Temple No. 2 in Bristol, and then Woodman, Westcott and Mathers founded the No.3 Isis-Urania Temple in London under the Golden Dawn banner, but with more complex rituals resulting from the input of Kabbalah, Egyptology and the Cipher Manuscripts. The very masonic rituals and historical narratives of the Fratres Lucis that have been published appear quite out of step with the profoundly magical nature of the Golden Dawn. It is specially interesting, then, that Major Irwin’s son Herbert should have scribed this Book of Magic which is, very explicitly, the book of the Fratres Lucis and is highly magical.
Some Themes:
Skrying using a magical mirror. Various procedures are described for using the magic mirror to view and communicate with spirits. One involves a surprisingly early description of the use of electric batteries for occult purposes. It is clear that working with the magic mirror is the source of much of the material of the book. The manuscript is highly visual using coloured inks and numerous diagrams and images, presumably recording visions received from the magic mirror. Herbert also talks of letting angels take over his body and guide his hand. One can spot some book sources (Barrett’s Magus, Key of Solomon) for some material but much is unfamiliar and is probably the result of such magical workings.
Contact with the Hidden Adepts was a crucial aspect of the Golden Dawn and its members employed various strategies, esoteric and exoteric, to contact the “Secret Chiefs”. In the Theosophical Society, and thence Crowley’s A.A.. it was the “Great White Brotherhood” with whom communication was sought. Likewise in the Fratres Lucis as set forth in this Magic Book by Herbert Irwin. Communication with Rosicrucian adepts of the Order is embodied in records of earlier group magical rituals attended by Martinez de Pasquales, Lavater, St. Germain, Cagliostro and others. These may have been clairvoyantly perceived through the skrying mirror. Herbert writes of magically attending meetings. The Order also has inner plane contacts with Knights Templar initiates with two records of communication with the spirit of Jacques de Molay, one anonymous (probably Herbert Irwin) and another attributed to Thomas Vaughan.
Hidden Sun. In a diagram and associated text it is stated that the sun we see is not the real sun, but an imperfect and lesser reflection of the light that illuminates other universes beyond ours. This idea went on to become a dogma of the Theosophical Society (founded one year after the manuscript was completed) and then gain notoriety as the notion of the “Black Sun” current in neo-Nazi occult vectors. The Fratres Lucis, as described in this book, is synonymous with the “Brothers of the Swastika”
“Non-Euclidian Geometry” Some diagrams are suggestive of paper being folded multiple times in a manner that appears impossible to replicate in reality. This and three full page diagrams that share certain commonalities, pointing to Universes beyond ours and with compass points awry, is reminiscent of the “non-Euclidian geometry” imagined by H.P. Lovecraft.
Drugs & Herbs. In the discussion of herbalism a dozen herbs are dealt with, some very briefly as medicinal herbs but there is an extensive section on saffron which gives a lengthy and complex procedure for obtaining an extract, which is stated as being considered by Fraters of the Rose Cross the most wonderful and useful herb. The effects described are of an extreme form of rejuvenation, and also a gentle heat that pervades the frame and gives a sense of liveliness and strength. Modern users find relatively small doses of saffron akin to a low dose of Ecstasy, and recent scientific tests supports its psychoactive potential and also find that it does increase the effects of opiates, which the Victorians knew as it was a major ingredient of laudanum. Herbert also discusses the magical uses of opium itself, about which he is ambiguous, considering it potentially demonic. Never-the-less, he took opium to assist his skrying and died of an opium overdose. The original codex bears a bookplate added by his father, with the Fratres Lucis swastika, recording his death and making the book a memorial to his son. This bookplate, plus the Irwin family bookplate also present in the original, are reproduced and tipped in to the facsimile. He may have died whilst skrying mind spaces related to those that gave rise to this book which is, at least, poignant – and may also have significant esoteric implications.
An Astral Book made Manifest An illustration of the Book of Magic forms the very first page of the manuscript and the glyph of the magic book appears in a number of the subsequent illustrations. These probably record of visions received in the skrying mirror. This edition now makes manifest that astral book. Furthermore, with the eye in the motif set in the front cover being on paper from the original manuscript, it provides a magical link that is the basis for the magic mirror set in the rear board to act as the window by which the practitioner may access the same mind spaces that Herbert viewed to create the original manuscript. These mind spaces are of the same astral flux that found manifestation in the Golden Dawn and the Theosophical Society.

SALOMONIC MAGICAL ARTS translated by Frederik Eytzinger (Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover)

Full crimson goat, marbled endpapers, limited to 72 hand-numbered copies. Book is in near fine condition with very light shelf wear else fine.

Water, I exhort you olansgält. Lucifer, I exhort you with all your company, that you will bring my belongings back again. May the thief never come to peace, neither at night nor at day, sleeping or awake, riding or on foot or by any means, until he returns what he has stolen..

–From A Spell To Catch Thieves

Amid the great genres of European magical books are the Scandinavian Svartkonstböcker or ‘Books of Black Arts’, the privately-kept practical manuals of magic used by rural charmers and practitioners of folk magic. Incorporating charms, prayers, and curses, as well as medicine, alchemy and physical experiments, many of these books survive today in universities and private collections. While bearing some relationship to the corpus of  European grimoires which feature angelic and demonic magic, the Svartkonstböcker as texts of magic are in a class all their own…

 

THE AFFLICTED MIRROR: A Study of Ordeals and the Making of Compacts by Peter Hamilton-Giles (Special Turquoise Goatskin Edition)

One of only 66 copies produced. Bound in turquoise goatskin and hand numbered this being number 36.

Measuring the connectivity between the visible and invisible, by using physicality as a signifier, brings another aspect to the fore. There appears to be good reason to believe there is a ratio in physical difference when it comes to observing how the metaphysical manifests partial presences. Exponential distortions correspond to how we retain a level of contact with the Other. When these abnormalities become exaggerated they prompt greater emotive responses, such as fear. By expressing an Otherness in this manner their difference takes on a terrifying dimension which also indicates power.

A shared feature of genuine magical practice and religious experience is the impression of ‘Otherness’, an entic arena of alienation and unfamiliarity. Contrasted with the more comfortable and known spheres of the Self, this ‘state apart’ provides not only inspiration and wonder, it is the dwelling-place of the gods and the prime source of gnosis, direct experience with the divine.

 

 

CHTHONIC PROSE & THEORY by Vadge Moore (Deluxe Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

 

192 pages
6 x 8.5 inches
Burgundy color moire silk binding
Black Endpapers
Silk ribbon page-marker
Gold foil lettering on the spine and gold foil stamp on the front.
Limited to only 50 copies this being number 34

From the publisher:

From the pen of Vadge Moore, one of American counterculture’s most notorious debauchees, comes a tome devoted to all the base, depraved, wicked and vile aspects of the animal Man.

Asserting that the savage, primal elements of the human spirit are, in fact, the proverbial Lead from which spiritual Gold can be spun, Moore takes us on a tour through Hell; the passage of which – for those bold enough to undertake it – can lead to a Heaven of a decidedly different nature than that posited by orthodox religion …

 

TURBA PHILOSOPHORUM: A Complete English Translation. Translated by Arthur Edward Waite (Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover)

Handbound in full burgundy leather with gilt titles and device, false-raised cords, marbled endsheets and a silk ribbon bookmark, also from the venerable studios of Ars Obscura Bookbinding. Only 275 copies produced.

Called also The Book of Truth in the Art and the Third Pythagorical Synod, An Ancient Alchemical Treatise Translated from the Latin by Arthur Edward Waite.

Known unto the Wise as the Crowd of Philosophers, this twelfth century treatise records the meeting of the “Hermetic Association for the Advancement of Alchemy” and gives voice to the alchemical wisdom of several centuries. From Pythagoras to the Thrice-Greatest Hermes, the Adepts converse on the keys of the Royal Art and the nature of the Magnum Opus in their pursuit of the Philosopher’s Stone.

Arthur Edward Waite’s translation of the Turba Philosophorum remains the most complete to date due to the fact that he examined the many variant Latin manuscripts. There were two versions of the Turba: a short version and a long version, and in cases where textual differences occurred, Waite was sure to note them. This new edition has retained those important words of wisdom.

 

DAEMONOLOGIE of the King James (Hardcover Limited GOAT-SKIN Edition)

This Deluxe edition is limited to only 45 copies bound in Goat-Skin. Books is a small octavo and is in new unread condition.

DAEMONOLOGIE, In FORME of a Dialogue, Divided into Three Bookes

Readers familiar with the King James Bible will find this book on Demonology and Witchcraft of significant interest. The Daemonologie of King James came about due to the involvement of James VI of Scotland in the North Berwick witch trials. While traveling by ship the King’s journey was beset with an unexpected storm at sea which nearly sank the vessel and greatly delayed the voyage. The Danish admiral of the accompanying fleet blamed it on the wife of a Copenhagen official claiming it was revenge for an ill remark he had made to her. This led to the first major persecution of witches in Scotland. Many were investigated and confessions extracted by torture and provided damning details of Sorcery, Devilry and fantastic reports of the Witches Sabbath. The results of those confessions serve as a foundation of James’ text Daemonologie and he here explicates them in the form of three dialogues. Late 16th century attitudes about witchcraft, necromancy, sorcery and kindred arts are represented here. This work also serves as a monument of the terrible inhumanity society can be capable of.

 

THE ROSICRUCIAN MANIFESTOS (Bound in Scarlet Leather Deluxe Limited Edition Hardcover)

ROSENCREUTZ EDITION: Full scarlet leather with raised spine bands gilt title and Rose Cross device. Handmarbled endsheets and silk ribbon bookmark. Limited to 120 copies only. Book is in new unread condition.

The Rosicrucian Manifestos describe the early life of Christian Rosencreutz, his pilgrimage to the East in search of occult knowledge and his eventual founding of the mysterious Brothers of the Rosy Cross. The enigmatic and axiomatic writing style places the texts firmly into the western esotericism and includes critiques upon the ‘closed minds’ of society, be it political, religious or intellectual and includes the legend of the founder CRC and gives very detailed descriptions of the Hidden Symbolical Vault wherein the secrets of the order were secured along with the body of Christian Rosencreutz laid in restful repose under an Everburing Lamp. The appended Letter from the Brothers of R.C. describes the Invisible Magical Mountain of the Adepts, how to get there and what to expect while ‘visiting’

 

Qabalah Qliphoth & Goetic Magic by Thomas Karlsson (Hardcover Edition)

From the publisher:

Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic is a unique practical introduction to magic. The main thread of the book is the exploration of the Qliphoth and the dark mysteries which have for so long been a repressed part of western esotericism. Instead of ignoring and denying the dark side, the author reveals, step by step, how man can get to know his Shadow and, through this, reach a deeper knowledge of the Self. By exploring and not by repressing the Shadow it can be transformed from a destructive force into a creative power. The book deals with the problem of evil, the symbolism behind the fall of Lucifer and mans creation process according to Qabalistic philosophy. The theories that are presented in this book are also linked to practice. Several examples of rituals, meditations, magical exercises and occult correspondences can be found within. Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic contains more than one hundred demonic sigils and pieces of art that were created specifically for this book. A unique collection of all the sigils from the classic grimoires Lemegeton: The Lesser Key of Solomon and the infamous Grimorium Verum are also included.

HANDS OF APOSTASY Daniel Schulke & Michael Howard (Special Quarter Bound in Goat) 1 of 63

Quarter Bound in Goat, with decorative boards and marbled endpapers. 1 of only 63 copies produced.

Old-style Craft, also known as traditional witchcraft, endures as a distinct body of archaic magical practices in present-day Britain, North America and Australia. Originally nameless, such bodies are related to a variety of historical magical streams, most notably the practices of the Grimoires or ‘black books’, folk-healing, and popular magic of the early modern era. Typically, such groups operate in secret, with strict means of initiatic succession, and practice sorcery characterized by a dual ethos of healing and harming. Though an internally contentious issue, the word witch is accepted as a descriptor for practitioners of this art, as is anti-witching for practices of removing curses and binding magical malefactors….

 

SEFER YEROCH RUACHOT by G. de Laval (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover Edition) Import

One of only 50 leather bound hardcover copies.

300 pages, 120 grams paper book block
full leather bound hardcover, adorned with gold foil lettering to spine and front cover stamp. Book is in new unread condition

From the publisher:

Sefer Yeroch Ruachot is an exhaustive treatise of 27 lunar spirits whose names form a complex cipher that is an explicit name of Satan, a previously unknown Shem ha Mephorash system pertaining to Satan, the opposer, the antagonist of the right-hand-path complex of Abrahamic religions. The demons of this grimoire, complete details of their alchemical construction, their relationship with dozens of other entities, conjurations seals and alchemical spirit signatures, as well as a full ritual system of working with them, is included. This work is the third installment of grimoires touching upon the world of greater Shem ha Mephorash entities: the book “Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash” and “The Explicit Name of Lucifer” are the first two books in the series, of which this work will be the largest and most comprehensive member so far with more than 300 pages in Royal book size, including 28 illustrations and countless sigils and mandalas.

 

CAVE OF THE NUMINOUS by Craig Williams (Deluxe bound in red goat)

One of only 60 deluxe leather bound hardcovers. This is number 20 of 60 copies produced. Book is in new unread condition.

From the publisher:

“Highly anticipated and the result of over 25 years of initiatic study within authentic Guru lineages, Cave of the Numinous by Craig Williams is one of the very few genuine expositions of the Left Hand Path in general and Left Handed Tantra in particular.

Cave of the Numinous is the first installment in Craig’s Tantric Physics series of books. Each self-contained volume will treat crucial aspects of the Vama Marga and considered as a whole this series will unveil a complete initiatic system of Left Hand Tantra….

 

LUX HAERESIS: The Light Heretical by Daniel Schulke (Limited Edition Hardcover)

Bound in iridescent grey cloth with black lettering to spine and Mask of Gorgon to upper board, burgundy endpapers, lexicon. Illustrated in b&w by Daniel Schulke. Edition limited to 729 hand-numbered copies.

The principal concern of the work is the Arcana of the Witch’s Eye and its mutual interaction with Sentient Luminosity. Treating the twin mysteria of Ocular Malediction (the so-called Evil Eye), and Seership or ‘The Sight’, the book proceeds beyond this duality unto the realm of Telaesthesis –the unique perceptual modalities of the Witches’ Sabbath, grand abberator of the sensorial field. Explored in detail is the magical relation between Hand and Eye, the Body of Void, and the vivification of the Magical Image. As a magico-poetic cartography of the illuminant metaphysic present in the folkloric strata of traditional witchcraft, The Light Heretical serves as both homage and grimoire to its Luciferian arcana.

 

DIABOLICAL edited and introduction by Peter Grey (Limited Edition Hardcover)

 

Delving deeper into the grimoires, Diabolical suggests that we make our pact with the spirits. A serious account of the workings and practice undertaken with these forbidden books.

The hardback edition of Diabolical is a serious tome of over 350pp,
with nine colour plates of original infernal artwork from Stafford Stone, Kyle Fite, Thomas Karlsson, and Johnny Jakobsson. Bound in red cloth shot through with charred black. The cover is stamped with the devil’s verse in heavy black fractur. It comes in an edition of 999 copies, hand numbered in dragon’s blood ink.
The grimoire tradition is being reinvigorated in the living practice of the carcists, magicians and sorcerors who dare to work with these books….

GRAVEYARD WANDERERS by Dr. Tom Johnson (Deluxe Leather Bound and Inlaid Copper Skeletal Hand)

Limited Edition: Limited to 180 numbered copies, this copy being #115 book is in fine unread condition

The Physical Manifestation of the Book

Printed on 180 gsm Fabriano Ingres, a real laid paper, whereby the textures are natural product of the pulp on wire mesh frames rather than being artificially embossed with a pretend texture. The covers are bound in leather cloth, a binding material that is 85% real leather and a sheet of copper, formed into skeletal hands. The Wise Ones would pay for the services of the Dead by leaving in place of the bone, a piece of metal in the form of a coin or a scraping from a church bell. Metal is an ideal vehicle for the transmission of deathliness, Coffin nails were recovered, sometimes to be entwined with horseshoe nails by a smith evoking infernal beings, and put to magical use. Needles employed to sew a corpse into its shroud were likewise sought after. Some of the charms in this book derive from the black art book of a smith, nestling amongst mundane recipes for the working of metals. But then metal is the zenith of man’s art. It’s mutability to will and permanence makes it ideal for coin, offerings to the dead, and for holding the form of skeletal hands in the binding of this book, so the reader feels the shape of dead fingers interlaced with their own. Bones are the part of us that persist after decay, and here the copper that forms their shape has been patonised, whereby the natural oxidation process is accelerated and stabilised. The result are iridescent colours, an effect referred to as the “peacock’s tail” in alchemy, where it is identified with the stage of decay in the Great Work. The patonised copper is then preserved with lacquer….

 

THE GREAT GRIMOIRE OF POPE HONORIUS (Deluxe edition bound in snakeskin and Tapas Cave Parchment)

Trident Books, First Edition, Condition: Mint-Unread. 4.25 in x 7 in, xxviii + 98 pgs. This is a hand-bound library edition bound with unique materials; the book boards have been wrapped with a unique hand-made paper that is similar to Egyptian papyrus in its construction and durability called “Tapa”. This material is still used in some South Sea locations as a currency and is renowned for its longevity. The title of the book (along with an inverted cross) has been hot-stamped onto the front cover in silver. The rest of the volume is bound with light colored snake skin and the volume utilizes genuine French marbled paper for the end sheets. All of the materials for this book have been carefully picked and prepared for this binding.

This is not the same version of The Grimoire of Pope Honorius published by other publishers. Other editions rely on the French texts for their source while this is a translation from a unique manuscript which was in the possession of a Swabian (Southwestern Germany) peasant and was collected by Johann Scheible for his monumental “Das Kloster” in 1847. The reader has been welcomed to study the translation of the original text and it has been included along with the English.

This edition is as complete as is possible, and includes the sigils and illustrations known to be associated with this work. The Grimoire of Pope Honorius III has been diligently translated by Ms. Kim Ch’ien from the Old German. This edition also includes an exhaustive bibliographic prolegomenon by Mr. John Davis. Appended to the work is a translation of the 15th century Ecclesiatic work, “Coniurationes Demonum”, translated from the Latin by Mr. Matthew Sullivan along with an annotated exposition of the major antique and modern editions of the grimoire.

 

THE BOOK OF SITRA ACHRA: A Grimoire of the Dragons of the Other Side N.A-A. 218 (Limited Edition Hardcover)

Limited printing of 777 copies of which all are sold out at the publisher! We have only one available. Book is in fine condition.

The Book of Sitra Achra is the first complete and completely Qliphothic Grimoire, providing the foundation for a Spiritual and Transcendental Initiatic approach towards the Other Side. Within the system and Tradition presented inside this book the very essential core of the Current 218 is for the first time ever made public, dispelling both the smoke screens and the misconceptions surrounding the Anti-Cosmic Tradition of Gnostic Satanism/Luciferianism, providing to those that hear and heed the Voiceless Call of Azerate the means for the entering and traversing of the Path of Black Fire, towards the Thrones of the Dragons of the Other Side.

The Tradition outlined in this Grimoire is in some of its aspects pertaining to the symbolism employed based on certain for us fundamental concepts derived from the Heresy of Sabbatai Zevi, as transmitted by the prophet Nathan of Gaza, such as the dichotomy between the Cosmic Light of Creation and the Anti-Cosmic Light of the Qliphothic Impulse. While this most important concept imbues the whole Work, the Tradition presented within this book takes the matter far deeper towards the Side of Qliphoth than what the ‘Sabbatian’ traditions ever had or would, until a Gnostic form of Anti-cosmic Satanism/ Luciferianism emerged perfectly suited for the Embodiment of the Current 218, not with the goal of separation and isolation from the True Divinity, like what most other forms of the so called “satanic” or “Left Hand Path” traditions seem to advocate and strive for, but instead setting as the highest goal to indeed merge and become as one with the Unbound Essence of Divinity in the Fullness of the Emptiness of Ain, beyond all limitations, illusions and finite duality…

THE CATECHISM OF LUCIFER by Johannes Nefastos (Limited Edition Hardcover)

“Written as a counter-gospel for the Evangelical Lutheran catechism, but in addition to this, it represents a Gnostic form of Satanism on its own. In this book is outlined the path out of worldliness, out of theology mortally wounded by its false theodicy, even out of humanity taken as something small-minded, powerless and petty. The Catechism of Lucifer is founded upon the idea that by hating the perverted picture made of God by the Christian doctrine, we may truly attain higher possibilities for our Spiritual development and Empowerment. On this demanding but beautiful and meaningful path we are led by our innermost potential of ingeniosity, the divine Master Lucifer.
