Satanism Bibliography (1): Religious Satanism and Demonolatry Bibliography

Religious Satanism has its inception in the fantasies and nightmares of Christians as part of the generation of subversion ideologies. Negative ideations form structures ascribing subversive motivations and interests to vague referents "in our midst", and at points in history these have been identified as 'satanists' (amongst many other things, such as 'heretics' and 'witches', some of which have become the focus of numerous historical moral panics). During the last century the mechanism of the subversion ideology and its function in moral panics has been adequately dissected by scholars, especially as it has made appearance in European and American society in response to immigration or novel religious developments.

Having been witness to rumour panics of this style decades prior, and observing the outcome of repealing laws restraining witchcraft in Europe during the 1950s, which in turn lead to the construction of witchcraft religion (Wicca et al), a natural outgrowth of this was the construction of satanist religion. As in the manner by which witchcraft religion arose in spots and then dispersed, so less numerously, but increasing in frequency, did the satanist religious arise and dissolve. The themes for both tended to run with subversion folklore promoted by Christians which were in many cases reflections off of Jews ('sabbats', 'synagogues of Satan'). These were drawn from numerous time periods and sources, with a greater emphasis by witchcraft religious on pre-Christian survivals somehow manifesting in modern society.

Religious Satanism began by, at a time in the United States just after a severe political moral panic (the McCarthyist Red Scare), attempting to grapple with the language of the religious moral panics by taking this up and re-deploying it in service to a new religion, following the example of witchcraft religious before them in the 1950s. During the 1960s, an organization sporting a 6th century calumny by John of Ephesus (the 'church of Satan') in San Francisco was created by Anton LaVey and others (including his wife Diane, friend Kenneth Anger, and others). They constructed a vehicle for media attention and a venue for instruction on personal empowerment via occult and religious means (including self-liberating 'Black Masses', cursing of one's enemies, self-indulgence contrary to puritanical morality, and expansive self-aggrandizement).

Competing with SF Bay Area Wicca and Crowleyan neo-Gnosticism of the 1960s, those who would become the Church of Satan at first constructed what they called their 'Magic Circle': a series of lectures or classes at which, for a small fee, LaVey would present monographs and esoteric data to those who attended. Later (as documented by Moody and Alfred in the 1970s), the lust and cursing rites were supplemented by the personal 'passages' ceremonies ('Black Mass' deprogramming, 'Satanic' christening, wedding, and funeral events), helped develop the religious character more fully.

The intensity of the personalities and diversity of interest of the people involved with the Church of Satan, in combination with its liberal Protestant context, led to numerous splintering and hiving events. This became more marked as the moral panic of the Satanism Scare during the 1980s-2000s ramped up, and the Church of Satan began to more stridently take on anti-Catholic apparel (building atop a church and bible a 'Black Pope', with their clergy wearing vestments resembling that of Roman Catholics, etc.).

Through time, the small number of people involved with religious Satanism, and the emphasis on ego and individualism by those who espouse Satanic philosophies with coherent integrity, has led to the proliferation of an identifiable body of literature associated with intended organizational ecclesia, on the one hand, or worshipful activity toward demons, on the other. With these documents is this bibliography concerned, initially tracking them and gradually including annotation for quality and content description.

This project began as a more general bibliography incorporating any aspect of satanism (subversion ideology) or (religious) Satanism, folklore of the demonic and of devilry, and taxonomized demonology. It still exists, but this section is here much expanded and refocussed on sustainable notions of what constitutes individual-based Satanic religious manifestation.

As odd as this may seem, the book's non-categorization sets the tone for the material herein: a continual flow of the author's thoughts on a variety of topics relevant to understanding Postmodern Satanism. One of Jason King's greatest achievements in this book (his Magnum Opus) was his ability to use a broad range of topics such as Philosophy, Culture, Mythology, Science, Mathematics, Physics, Metaphysics, and The Occult, as models in order to explain his position, but not to solidify the position itself into a set of rigid dogmatic beliefs. By [not] doing so, King makes clear that Postmodern Satanism is a perspective that is constantly growing and constantly evolving. If you have ever wondered how Satanism is relevant within the 21st century, then Postmodern Satanism by Jason King is definitely a book for you to own." -- from (accessed 1/14/16).
