Trial #5: Satanic Reading

The Templar Initiate is a scholar who is well-read in the important texts of Satanic ideology, literature and black magickal practice. We are not looking for digital dilettantes who think that watching youtube videos and surfing social media can substitute for real infernal learning.

Magic: History, Theory and Practice by Ernst Schertel
Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson
Pacts with the Devil by Black and Hyatt

  • What is your overall impression of the book?

  • How relevant is it to Satanism in your mind?

  • What are the most important things you learned from it?

  • How can the Temple of Satan apply some of the ideas contained in the book?
