Demonolatry is both a magickal practice and a religion

Demonology is the study of demons or beliefs about demons, especially the methods used to summon and control them.

The word demonology is from Greek daimōn,  meaning “divinity, divine power, god.” And we absolutely agree!

According to some societies, all the affairs of life are supposed to be under the control of spirits, each ruling a certain “element” or even object, and themselves in subject onto a greater spirit.

In ancient Babylon, demonology had an influence on even the most mundane elements of life, from petty annoyances to the emotions of love and hatred. The numerous demonic spirits were given charge over various parts of the human body, one for the head, one for the neck, and so on.

Many religions and cultures believe, or once believed, that what is now known as soothsaying, was, or is, a form of physical contact with demons.

Working with Demons

Demons are not worshipped by most modern Demonolators- they are “worked with.”

Working with Demons is not dangerous like most people think it is, but if you’re not ready for drastic changes in your life, Demonolatry isn’t for you.

There’s much more to it than just “demonology” which is the cataloging of Demons.
