Animism, the Seed of Religion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This is of interest potentially to two groups of people; the occultist will here find some interesting folk tales and spiritual rites from cultures then being actively studied at the height of the colonial era, and the history buff will find in these pages an interesting but sometimes outdated colonial perspective on non-European cultures. It focuses mostly on African lore but...
The Tabernacle: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
And now it's time for a happy surprise- one final occult work to release before 2019 begins. It's quite a great one also- compiled from sermons and writings from the renowned Presbyterian George Junkin. It covers the architecture of the Jewish Temple in minute detail and offers (sometimes inferred) symbolism and other asides. Altogether it's painstakingly detailed, and the amount...
Realms of the Egyptian Dead: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This little work is one of the better, more dense pieces of Egyptology I've come across- one of the reasons I prioritized it in the new slew of works I have planned for the rest of 2018 into, probably, as late as mid 2020. Written by Alfred Wiedemann in the golden era of Victorian academic works, it is a broad overview of a few important topics within Egyptian pagan lore-...
The Chaldean Account of the Deluge: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This short tract is an interesting primary source that led directly to the writing of Smith's longer "Chaldean account of Genesis." An archaeologist in the late 1800s, Smith was instrumental in some of the digs at Ninevah and elsewhere and was apparently self taught in cuneiform translation.
While this treatise, which translates what would become part of the Epic of Gilgamesh, was...
All About Devils: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This strange work is a spiritualist writing from the late 1800s. Moses Hull was once a fairly well regarded Adventist minister but lost his faith, embraced the occult, and proceeded to write this little booklet, which is almost a tract of demonolatry for its era.
Short in length but deep in detail, it excoriates and lambastes the church, applauds Satan as a herald of wisdom (and at...
Phallic Objects: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This work is a bit more like "Archaic Rock Inscriptions" than it is the progenitor work "Phallism" albeit it is from the same series. Like other works within the phallism series (again, as always, possibly but not definitively a work by Jennings Hargrave) it relies predominantly on secondary sources, in this case mostly archaeological.
It's a good work; mostly it covers the...
Archaic Rock Inscriptions: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is from the same editor that crafted Ophiolatreia and Cultus Arborum among other works, (possibly Hargrave.) Made in the 1890s, it is a fairly eugenics-heavy and imperialistic look at the prevalent lingam-identified markings scattered across Brazil, the US, the British Isles, India, and elsewhere.
Its allusions to the Druids, lingam-yoni worship, burial rites, and...
