We are proud to announce our next release, “Wolf’s Hooked Cross”, the follow-up to Diabolic Gnosticism, by Frater Kafyrfos.
Where Diabolic Gnosticism presented us with the philosophical basis of how to understand the mysteries of the Blood and the Devil, Wolf’s Hooked Cross shows us the practical methods to work with said mysteries. The praxis of Diabolic Gnosticism involves recognising the sinister essence of writhing Chaos within and setting it free. It is a dynamic and organic way of understanding and using magic, psychology and spirituality. This book describes the cycles of rituals, initiations and the symbolism of the Devil’s Current.
Diabolic Gnosticism, or the knowledge of the Devil, is an alternative to Christian Gnosticism and offers a post-, anti- and non-Christian perspective or framework for coming to know the divinity of the Blood – the Blood-as-God or the Devil-as-God. Diabolic Gnosticism could be considered to be the combination of exoteric Devil worship and esoteric Blood worship, Diabolic Gnosticism being a wide reaching sinister spiritual movement. Devil, Chaos and Death worship currents are the exoteric form of actual Blood worship and Blood Mysticism, Blood Mysticism being the esoteric spiritual path. The Devil in Diabolic Gnosticism is not temptation and weakness. It does not represent the failings and failures of an adherent, but rather it is the inner Will and the anti-human urge. The Devil in many ways is the instigation of withdrawal from humankind and humanity generally. By withdrawing from one’s humanity an individual can then come to know of his depth of character. One becomes a stranger or an outsider to many-too-many.
As it was the case with Diabolic Gnosticism, the visions contained in Wolf’s Hooked Cross have been manifested through the art of Néstor Avalos, who brings forth the essence of this work with his striking and recognizable style. Aside from the full-page illustrations, the book contains several other sigils and images created by Frater Kafyrfos.
“Wolf’s Hooked Cross” will be available in three editions, the leatherbound Path of the Blood edition, limited to 70 copies; the hardcover Path of the Gnostic edition, limited to 100 copies; and the softcover Path of the Devil edition, limited to 200 copies.
