Prayers to Satan
Below is the beginning of what I hope will eventually become a large collection of prayers to Satan.
First, two literary classics, both praising Satan though in very different ways:
- Annotated translation of Hymn to Satan by Giosue Carducci, on the Church of Satan site. (The CoS folks are symbolic Satanists, not theistic Satanists, but their site does have some good stuff on it, as well as some not-so-good stuff.) Carducci's poem was written back in 1865 C.E. He later won a Nobel Prize and is considered to be one of Italy's very greatest poets. For more information about Carducci, plus another translation of his poem, see this page on Carducci by some eastern European Satanists.
- The Litanies of Satan by Charles Baudelaire, original French version plus several English translations, on FleursDuMal.org
Now for other prayers to Satan. First, here on this site:
- Invocation to Satan, in my recommended standard ritual.
- Prayer of acknowledgment of Satan's rulership in my recommended preliminary self-initiation rite.
- More later, probably
