  • Understanding Baphomet

    2023-02-19  17:00 - 18:00

    Daughter of Sunset Lodge, Vancouver BC

    This is a combined online, and in-person event. In-person attendance is available to a limited number of members and guests, and online attendance is open to the public.

    Who is Baphomet? The Knights Templar were accused of worshipping him; Eliphas Lévi famously depicted him in one of his books; Aleister Crowley took Baphomet as his magical name when he became the Head of the British OTO; and Frieda Harris painted him on two Thoth tarot atus: as The Fool and as The Devil. An androgynous mix of human and animal, Baphomet was both maligned as an image of something sinister and glorified as a symbol of an adept. We will look into the question of Baphomet's possible origins in pre-Islamic Arabic or North African folk religion. We will also look into the Occult Revival of the late 19th Century, where Baphomet was promoted as a symbol of social liberation and socialism, reading a selection from the article linked below. And of course, we will consider his role in the Thelemic pantheon. Join us for a talk and discussion to explore this fascinating figure.
