The Catechism of Lucifer

Postby Fomalhaut » Sun Nov 11, 2012 11:41 pm

The Catechism of Lucifer (by Johannes Nefastos) was 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.

I personally hold the Catechism of Lucifer, one of the masterwork of frater Nefastos and the Star of Azazel, inspired by Master Satan, as a talisman book or magickal item, which I have place close to my bed, on a small table which, I have settled as an altar, using its prayers to raise my spirit and grasp a glimpse into the essence of Satan.
The content of The Catechism, it commandments, its Credo, its pure Budhi Love carrying a quintessence that ignites the acosmic spark of Lucifer in the heart of man, should not only be grasped by a reading or exercise of the human intellect, but by the soul and spirit. Thus, After studying a versicle on the Catechism, I suggest a meditation and pondering be followed, so this wisdom be branded upon the soul as an act of spiritual scarification by the burning hot knife forged upon the fire of Azazel.
The body and consciousness of man its changeable and perishable, but the soul and the Black Flame will last, as the rock that stands firm against the fire,earth movements, windstorms, tides of water... like a strong monolith.

Balkan's arcane bindings, which as some of you might be familiar with, is a blog that reviews various esoteric and religious tomes. This afformentioned blogger has reviewed the Catechism of Lucifer and seems that he was positively suprised of it's contents.

Thank you for pointing this out, it was very pleasant to read such an unbiased & positive review.

There were some minor misunderstandings or things I'd see as such in the blog text, so I'll give my expanations about those:

Concerning artwork.
There is no artwork of M. Rautiainen in the book. He was the translator.

Concerning Catholicism.
The Catechism of Lucifer doesn't follow (& invert) the Catholic, but Protestant catechism. (In the original Finnish version, even the passages & sentences often followed forms & ideas of the original Evangelical-Lutheran catechism, in a way answering not only to its themes but exact words.)

Concerning "Holy Darkness".
This is a concept used by Orthodox Christian mystics also, so it's not only Satanistic gusto as presumed. St. Gregory spoke of "bright darkness" of God, &c. The idea can be found in Philokalia, too.

This is probably going to make me sound like a huge cheapeskate, but are either the English version of Fosforos and the Catechism of Lucifer going to be published in a less expensive way?

Like how Scarlet Imprint press has paperback versions of all of their titles for example.

Not at all. I personally think that money should never be the problem when seeking occultism-related information.

(Of course, sometimes one's reluctance to give away money would create such a problem, but that's a different thing.)

There has been no plans yet, but eventually, most likely yes. At least Fosforos, which is useful text for to understand - or challenge - some basic points in the Star of Azazel.

The Witches' Lenormand- by Stygian D. I did the art for the cards and my friend did the manipulation in Photoshop.

we have not begun to sell them yet, but the two books were what I asked for as payment. because I had read some casual quotes by Nefastos and they moved me so much that I knew I HAD to get his books. my left hand was shaking when I was reading the description... I needed the books that much. and every divination I've made has told me that The Star of Azazel will lead me to new heights and guide me well on my path. :)
