These are the first two books in the Temple of Satan’s series on diabolism and black magick. They provide an introduction to the doctrine, practice and literature of Devil-worship. They may be read by anyone seeking diabolical knowledge and inspiration, but they are intended particularly for those who wish to become initiated members of our Order of Satanic Templars: the black priesthood of our worldwide organization of Devil-worshippers.
Book I introduces the reader to the doctrine, black magick and rites of the Order. You will learn of the prophetic ideas that inspire us, the theory and practice of black magick and Satanic Temple rites and the diabolical life-ways of our kind. Book I culminates in the First Gate trials, which require the Aspirant to make a pact with the Devil, among other diabolical things.
Book II is an introduction to the classical literature of Devil-worship and black magick that gives Aspirants deeper knowledge of our religion and fuel for their infernal imaginations.
