The Truth about the Satanic Panic
Jeffrey S. Victor has researched the social phenomenon known as the Satanic Panic. In his book he explores this time in recent history where people were falsely accused of horrific crimes that the media and other officials related to Satanism. In exposing the lies of the past about Satanism, this book makes an excellent reference for those who want to learn about this social tragedy, and how it has affected Satanism to this day.
The author has done this research to help others to understand why the Satanic Panic happened, and why it is an important part of American history. The Satanic Panic – Creation of a Contemporary legend belongs on every Satanist’s bookshelf.
The Dictionary of Satanism
The Dictionary of Satanism is one of my favorite books. Its a listing of all things demonic and Satanic. And while
it is not very modern, it still is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn about the history of what people have found to be dark and
evil in myth and legend. I have found this book to be a great source of inspiration when it comes to the history of the occult, demons, and other things that Satanists might want to know.
The author and translator, Wade Baskin (1924–1974) is well known for his work on the occult and his studies on philosophy and linguistics. He served on the faculty of South Eastern Oklahoma state University and he was also the editor of Classics in Education.
The Satanic Bible
This is the classic book that so many Satanists read. Many Satanists throughout the years have taken the path of Satanism because they have read this book and seen a reflection of themselves within the pages. This book offers insights from the High Priest of the Church of Satan’s founder, Anton LaVey.
While it was written in 1969, its writing has captivated satanists for a few generations now. I refer to this book as the ‘Satanist’s Primer’ because of its introductory nature. When you read this book you will have insight on the history of Satanism as it began in the late 60’s, and
you will see influences of that today, within the numerous Satanic orders that have followed in the footsteps of
the Church of Satan. Purchase The Satanic Bible
