From Satan Service
Jump to: navigation, search


What follows is a roughly chronological list of names of people there is reason to believe, based on reliable references, were at one time (and perhaps still are) associated with religious Satanism, combined with their pseudonyms or name(s) previous to becoming a Satanist, if known, and the reputable source for the estimation of their participation or activity, so as to make tracking them easy and possible for the interested researcher:


From its inception in 1966, the Church of Satan was the centerpoint of continuing religious Satanic activities. Its initial period extends until the stipulation of the policy in May of 1975 that "professional services, funds, real estate, objects of value, etc., which contribute to the tangible, worldly success of the Church of Satan are qualification for elevation to both II' and III'." This caused such a controversy that it led to the resignation of a number of church members.

Many Satanists who were active in the latter part of the 20th century had initial membership in, or at least interaction with, the Church of Satan. The second period of Satanism's history is therefore buttressed on the one end by the 1975 dispute within the church itself and the death of Anton LaVey, who was the leader and executive director of that organization.

With the advent of the death of Anton LaVey in October of 1997, and the creation of internet websites relating to the Church of Satan at least by name in 1997 and 1998, not only did the character of social networking transform, but the Satanist subculture more confidently decentralized into varieties and assemblies whose visibility in relation to aggregate membership numbers (always a controversy) made them difficult to assess.
