Satanic Literature

Satanic Literature

The Gatekeepers are great aficionados of Satanic literature. We believe that Lord Satan often reveals His will in this medium via inspired writers so we pay close attention to their work. The following are some of the books we believe are Satanically inspired; read and study them carefully for ideas for you own Satanic practices in your Black Houses, Lodges and Covens.

Dennis Wheatley

Few have done more to popularize Satanism and Black Magic and lure people into these realms than the British novelist Dennis Wheatley. Though he claimed to be strictly a White-Lighter, we believe Wheatley was an agent of Lord Satan whose work demands close study. Some Wheatley novels to study include the following:

The Devil Rides Out: Features the Black Magician Mocata, his diabolical cult and their apocalyptic agenda. Includes an early fictional Satanic Sabbat and considerable occult lore.

Strange Conflict: Features a most intriguing mix of voodoo, astral conflict, Satanism and Nazism; an occult take on World War II.

To the Devil a Daughter: Features the diabolical Canon Copley, his Satanic chapel and an evil scheme to breed Devil-creatures.

The Satanist: Introduces the diabolical Brotherhood of the Ram, their Satanic Temple, and their scheme for world domination. Contains impressive details about the workings of a Black Lodge.


The French novel La-Bas (“The Damned”), published in 1891, is a famous Decadent novel about a writer’s quest to find some deeper meaning in a shallow, materialistic modern world. The writer becomes obsessed with the life of the notorious 15th century Baron Gilles de Rais, who was accused of murdering hundreds of children in Satanic rites. His obsession leads him into the underworld of diabolism in late 19th century Paris, where he witnesses an authentic Black Mass. The Black Mass portrayed here was controversial in its day, and it remains one of the most disturbing and believable accounts of diabolical worship in the literature—“a madhouse, a monstrous pandemonium of prostitutes and maniacs” indeed. A must read!

Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby is a phenomenal novel—a huge best-seller in its day that did much to ignite the Satanic explosion of the late 1960s. Ira Levin’s novel offers more details than the film about the machinations of the sinister Marcato coven. Another must read!

The Omen I-V

The first three Omen novels follow the films closely, while adding a few interesting details about the Antichrist and his Disciples. The last two novels use a clever premise to continue the line of the Antichrist through the execrably conceived son of Damien Thorn. The scenes in the Thorn mansion, where Damien Junior has set up a Satanic Chapel dedicated to his father (and his Father), are particularly well done. We also learn a few more details about the Disciples, such as their practice of luring powerful people into the cult via sex and drugs, and giving each of them the “Mark of the Beast” on their fingers.

The Devil-Worshippers

Part of the “Dark Lords Library of the Occult” series, The Devil-Worshippers: Tales of Diabolism & Black Magic is an anthology of classic short tales and essays about Devil Worship, edited by the Dark Lords. This is an excellent reference for Templars who want an introduction to Diabolist literature and occult thought.
