Demons A to B

 
Abbadon:

In his 1993 novel Abaddon, radio evangelist Bob Larson describes the actions of demons. The imposing name of Larson’s book comes from a well known character and place name in the Bible. Abaddon (Variations: Abbadon, Abbadona, Abbaton, Abadon, Obaddon) is a name derived from the Hebrew term “abad” (“to perish”). Abaddon was originally appears to have been a synonym for Hell or Sheol in several texts, such as the 1st century apocryphon The Biblical Antiquities of Philo and “The Thanksgiving Hymns” found amongst the Dead Sea Scrolls. The qabbalist Joseph ben Abraham Gikatilla lists Abaddon as the sixth of the seven lodges of Hell, under the presidency of the angel Pasiel.

In the Bible Abaddon is a destroying angel of the Apocalypse. St. John appears to have been the first to use Abaddon as the name of an angel rather than a place. Abaddon appears in Revelations 9:11: “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon”. Abaddon is the angel who binds Satan for 1,000 years in Revelations 20. Abaddon’s Greek name, “Apolluon” or “Apollyon”, means “the Destroyer”.

De Plancy and Grillot list Abaddon as a chief demon of Hell, equated with Samael or Satan. Milton lists Abaddon as the name for the pit of Hell in Paradise Regained. Abaddon is a synonym for the Devil in Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress and the name of a demon in the third century Acts of Thomas. The Greater Key of Solomon lists Abaddon as the name Moses invoked bring down rain storms. Abaddon is the angelic ruler of the furies in The Magus. Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey lists Abaddon as one of the Infernal names in The Satanic Bible and as the name of the “Angel of the Bottomless Pit”, used in the performance of the Black Mass in The Satanic Rituals. In the magical system of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Abbadon is one of seven infernal abodes mentioned in the initiation of the Theoricus grade. In the Diabolicon, Abaddon is the daimon of temporal death and life in death. This explains why Larson chose this demon as the name of his book.

 

Aguares

Aguares, of the order of the virtues who governs thirty-one legions, appears riding a crocodile and carrying a sparrowhawk. He is said to make deserters return and can cause enemies to flee. He can exalt people, teach all languages, and make the earth spirits dance.

Agares. The first duke under the power of the east, he commeth up mildile [i.e. he appears willingly] in the likenes of a faire old man, riding upon a crocodile, and carrieng a hawke on his fist; hee teacheth presentlie all maner of toongs, he fetcheth backe all such as runne awaie, and maketh them runne that stand still; he overthroweth all dignities hee maketh earthquakes, [lit. “and makes spirits of the earth dance”] and is of the order of vertues, having under his regiment thirtie one legions.

Mostly, Agares is a voice for the common man. She teaches every language, chases off enemies, defends commoners, and can even bring down high-ranking officials who do not dutifully serve their role.

 

Amdusias

 

Amdusias has 29 legions of demons and spirits under his command and has the rank of Great King. He is depicted as a human with claws instead of hands and feet, the head of a unicorn, and a trumpet to symbolize his powerful voice.

Amdusias is associated with thunder and it has been said that his voice is heard during storms. In other sources, he is accompanied by the sound of trumpets when he comes and will give concerts if commanded, but while all his types of musical instruments can be heard they cannot be seen. He is regarded as being the demon in charge of the cacophonous music that is played in Hell. He can make trees bend at will.

He is mentioned as a King in Johann Weyer’s Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (1583).

Amy:

Amy is a name which appears in a “Satanic Circle” depicted in Alford’s Occult Crimes Investigations. “Amy” is the fifty eighth spirit of the Lemegeton, described as a great president who appears as a flaming fire. The Lemegeton says that Amy has the power to impart knowledge of astrology and liberal sciences, the power to locate treasures hidden by spirits and the power to assign good familiars. He commands 36 legions of spirits.

Anakim:

Anakim is listed as a demon on the Demonbusters web site in the section with the title “Learn About The Real Enemy- Satan and his Followers- Names of Satan and His Demons”.[13] Anakim is a name derived from a Hebrew term, “ONQIM” (“giants”). In Judaic mythology the Anakim were the offspring of fallen angels and mortal women, mentioned in Genesis 6 in the Bible as well as in The Zohar. Anakim appears on the first line of a gnomonic square used to cause a familiar spirit to appear in the form of a lion in the Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage.

ANDREALPHUS

A great Marquis with the appearance of a Peacock who raises great noises and teaches cunning in astronomy, and when in human form also teaches geometry in a perfect manner. He is also described as ruling over thirty legions and as having the ability to turn any man into a bird.

Apollo:

In both Greek and Roman mythology Apollo was the God of the Sun, fertility, medicine, music, poetry, eloquence and truth. He was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of the Goddess Artemis. The Madraks may have been influenced in including Apollo on this list because Apollo is one of the “watery reflections of the three enthusiasms” in Crowley’s Liber HHH, the other two being Dionysus and Aphrodite. Crowley also mentions Apollo in Liber A’Ash and Liber DCCCXI.

Apollyon:

Apollyon (Variations: Apollion, Apolhun, Appolyon) is a name derived from the Greek terms “Apolluon” or “Apollyon” (“the Destroyer”). Apollyon is another name for Abaddon, a destroying angel of the Apocalypse. In Revelations 9:11 Apollyon is the angel of the bottomless pit. In The Magus he has become a fallen angel who is a deceiver as well as the leader of the Furies. Apollyon is one of the Infernal names listed in Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible.

Asmodeus:

In Schemes of Satan, Warnke states that “Asmodeus was an evil being who was known as the ‘king of the demons.’ He is also identified with Beelzebul… “[19] On the Ex Pagans 4 Christ web site, Asmodeus shows up as the name of a high priest in a coven that Keziah Thomas claims to have belonged to.

Asmodeus is a Biblical figure, adopted from Zoroastrianism, who appears in the Apocrypha. Zoroaster named this entity “Aeshma-daeva” (“demon of fury”), so Warnke’s translation of the name is incorrect. The name Asmodeus does not appear at all in the Lemegeton. The name that does appear in the Lemegeton is Asmoday, who is the thirty second spirit, described as a king who appears with a serpent’s tail, webbed feet and with three heads that vomit fire: a bull, a man and a ram. The Lemegeton names Asmoday as one of the four chiefs of the seventy two spirits of the Goetia. Asmodeus and Beelzebul are two entirely different entities. Beelzebul does not appear in the Lemegeton either.

Astaroth:

In Schemes of Satan, Warnke describes Astaroth: “Also known as Astarte, Astaroth is the Phoenician goddess of fertility and of sexual love. Asmodeus: …derived from a Hebrew term that means ‘destroyer’.” [20] Madrak’s short list of “Gods / Goddesses” on their Demonbusters web site includes “Ashtar, Ashoreth, Ashtoreh, Istar, Astar.[21]

“The goddess has returned. She who brought judgment on the hillsides of apostate Israel–the Ashteroth from Canaan whose altars were condemned by God–is being revered and embraced by today’s followers of witchcraft, radical feminism, the occult, and increasingly, those in the liberal church. Neopagans look toward an idealized feminine age to heal the world. To them, the masculine age has been an age of destruction and broken relationships. But “feminine energies” promise to bring balance to the destructive aspects of the Piscean Age–so says this emerging myth.”[22]

Astaroth appears in grimoires variously as an angel, spirit, duke or demon. In a fashion typical of these Judeo Christian magickal texts, Astaroth is turned into a male entity. The powers usually attributed to Astaroth in these grimoires involves the ability to divine the location of hidden wealth or create storms. None of these aspects involves sacrifice.

Astaroth is the twenty ninth spirit of the Lemegeton, described as a duke who appears as an angel. Some translations describe this angel as beautiful, but with awful breath and other translations describe this angel as foul looking.

The Lemegeton assigns Astaroth the power of divination and the ability to reveal secrets.

 

 

 

 

Baal:

As we’ve seen elsewhere in this series, Baal is a demon mentioned in many occult crime manuals: He is mentioned in Westhoelters NIN manual and his name appears in a diagram of a “Satanic Circle” in Clifford Alford’s Occult Crimes Investigations. Warnke describes him as “Baal: Also known as Hadad,”[24] Baal’s name turns up on Keziah Thomas’s Ex Pagans 4 Christ web site.

In Matrisciana’s 1991 film Halloween: Trick or Treat, Eric Holmberg quotes from the first book of Kings and links Jezebel to Baal and Astaroth “the demons of child sacrifice.” Holmberg then quotes from Revelation 2:20: “But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads my bond servants astray, so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols”. In none of the grimoires in which Baal is named (the Grand Grimoire, the Pseudo-Monarchia, the Dictionaire Infernal, Levi’s Transcendental Magic, and De Givry’s Witchcraft, Magic and Alchemy) is Baal listed as a demon of child sacrifice.

In this same movie Matrisciana gives other examples of her lack of knowledge of things Celtic by stating: “The ancient Druids worshipped Baal, one of the most powerful of all the demon kings. In the list of Enochian demons, Baal is said to be a king which is at the power of the east [sic]. Eastern religions emphasize that spiritual power comes from meditation. The common denominator between Druids, Witches and Satanists is the practice of meditation for the purpose of making contact with the spirits of the dead or disembodied spirits.” The scene being shown while Matrisciana says this is of Wiccans celebrating in a rather smoky circle. Enochian demons are part of the Judeo-Christian magical tradition, not Druid or Wiccan beliefs. Many religions practice meditation, and just because they share a particular practice does not mean that everything else they do is the same. Druid beliefs aren’t an “Eastern religion” as Matrisciana claims here: The Celts were centered in Western Europe. Matrisciana has obviously mistaken Baal for Bel/Belenus/Bile, a God of the Celtic underworld.

In Larry Jones’ File 18 newsletter David Brown also tries to link Baal to Halloween and the Druids: “The god whom the Druids worshiped was Baal, as the blazing Baal-fires show… we know they offered human sacrifices…we have evidence that they made ‘their children pass through the fire to Molech’, and that makes it highly probable that they also offered them in sacrifice… we find that these things were parts of one and the same system… Priests of Nimrod or Baal were necessarily required to eat of the human sacrifices; and thus it has come to pass the ‘Cahna-Bal‘, (Canha is the emphatic form of Cahn which means ‘a priest’) meaning the priest of Baal, is the established word in our tongue for a devourer of human flesh.”[25]

Brown’s etymology is imaginative but entirely inaccurate. “Cannibal” is a name originally given by the conquering Spaniards to the Carib peoples of the West Indies. It is a variation of the word “Caribes”, first used by Christopher Columbus, which comes in turn from the word “Carib” in the Arawakan language of the Caribbean and South America. “Carib” is related to the name that the Carib’s gave to themselves: “Galibi” (“strong men”). The word cannibal later came to mean people who eat human flesh because these early Spaniards believed that the Carib people did so. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Bible or Middle Eastern history. This is just another example of a fundamentalist trying to make connections with the ubiquitous Baal. Baal was a Phoenician deity, Nimrod a king who appears in the Bible and Molech a name derived from a Hebrew term meaning “king”. None of these is or was used by Druids.

Baal does not appear in the Lemegeton. Originally a Phoenician vegetation and storm God whose name translates as “lord”, Baal is mentioned many times in the Old Testament, an example being Judges 2:13: “And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.” Baal was a pre-Biblical Phoenician vegetation and storm God whose name translates as “lord”. Baal is mentioned many times in the Old Testament, an example being Judges 2:13: “And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth”. In some places in the Bible Baal has become a demon. In other instances the Bible uses the name Baal simply as a synonym for “Lord”, as in the name Baal zebub (“Lord of the Flies”). In The Zohar, Baal is cognate with the angel Raphael. In the Grand Grimoire, Baal is a subordinate of Lucifuge Rocofale. In his Pseudo-Monarchia, Wierus lists Baal as the Commander in Chief of the armies of Beelzebuth. He is described as having three heads: toad, cat and man. In Levi’s Transcendental Magic, Baal is the leader of the Harab-Serapel. Baal is a demon mentioned by Grillot De Givry in his Witchcraft, Magic and Alchemy. In the Dictionaire Infernal, Baal is listed as a demon.

Balaam:

Balaam is listed as a demon on the Demonbusters web site in the section “Learn About The Real Enemy- Satan and his Followers- Names of Satan and His Demons”.[26] Balaam (Variations: Balam, Balan) is a Hebrew name meaning “destruction”. In the Bible Balaam was a Mesopotamian soothsayer and prophet (Deuteronomy 23, Joshua 13 and many other books).

Balaam is one of the Infernal names listed in Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible and an entity mentioned in “Homage to Tchort” in LaVey’s The Satanic Rituals, which is probably what prompted this entry on the Madrak’s list.

Beelzebub:

Clifford Alford mistakenly refers to a spirit Beeazlebub” in his Occult Crimes Investigations. Obviously Alford is referring to Beelzebub here. Beelzebub shows up in Lt. Norman Mitchell’s Hidden Practices and in the “Glossary of Occult Terms” in Detective Don Rimer’s “Symptoms Characterizing Occult Ritual Abuse” as “Beelzebub: The prince of demons.”[34]

Known variations of this name include: Beelzebuth, Belzebuth, Beelzeboul, Baalzebub, Belzebut, Belzeboub and Belzebud, but not Beeazlebub. This Latin name is derived from the Hebrew term “Baalzebub” and means “lord of flies” (“Baal”, meaning “lord” + “zebub” (“ZBVB”), meaning a fly or insect). Originally a Syrian God, Beelzebub appears in the New Testament of the Bible, examples being Mathew 10:25, 12:24 (“But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils”), and Mark 3:22 (“And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils”). Groups such as the Essenes created personifications of evil such as Beelzebub to denounce their opponents, claiming that their opponents had been seduced by these personifications of evil.

In Milton’s Paradise Lost, Beelzebub was Satan’s chief lieutenant among the fallen angels. In the Grimorium Verum Beelzebub is called the prince of spirits. According to Eliphas Levi, Beelzebub was the leader of the Chaigidel. Beelzebub was described as the supreme chieftain of demons in Alexis De Terreneuve de Thym’s autobiography Farfadets, Ou Tous Le Demons Ne Sont Pas L’autre Monde. Beelzebub was the leader of the “false gods” in Barret’s The Magus. Beelzebub is one of the Infernal names listed in Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible, as well as a name used in the performance of a Black Mass in LaVey’s The Satanic Rituals. Beelzebub is an archdaimon who is Satan’s second in command, who makes one of the “Statements” in the Diabolicon. Beelzebub is a prince of the demonic order of Seraphim listed by Michaelis in his Admirable History. He is also a demon of gluttony listed by Binsfield.

Belial:

In Schemes of Satan, Warnke states that “Belial: … [is] uniformly regarded as the proper name for the prince of evil- Satan.”[35] Rapacki describes Belial as “The most vicious of all demons. He is identified with death and evil. He is the demon of destruction”.[36] Belial is listed on Madrak’s “Satanists and Setians” list on his Demonbusters web site.[37] The same site has a page with the title “Learn About The Real Enemy- Satan and his Followers- Names of Satan and His Demons” which also lists “Belial”.[38] Lou Sloat’s Texas Ritualistic Crime Information Network Occult Crime Manual lists the definition: “Belial: Without a master.”[39] This brief and cryptic definition suggests that Belial is a adjective, rather than a name.

Belial is a Hebrew name, “BLIOL,” meaning “wicked one.” It appears in numerous places in the Old Testament, such as Deuteronomy 13:13, Judges and 1 Samuel. Belial is the sixty eighth spirit of the Lemegeton, described as a king, created next after Lucifer, who appears as a beautiful angel seated in a chariot of fire, not a demon. The Lemegeton names Belial as one of the four chiefs of the seventy two spirits of the Goetia. The Lemegeton assigns him the power to win the favors of friends and foes, to give familiars, and to make men senators. Belial was not used as an alternative name for Satan as Warnke suggests, appearing in many grimoires as a separate entity along side or subordinate to Satan. None of these listings would suggest that Belial is, as Rapacki suggests, “the demon of destruction.

Buer

FALLEN ANGEL and the 10th of the 72 SPIRITS OF SOLOMON. Buer is a president in HELL, where he governs more than 50 LEGIONs of DEMONs. He appears when the Sun is in Sagittarius. He teaches moral and natural ph losophy, the logical arts, and the virtues of all herbs and plants. Buer heals all distempers and gives good FAMILIARs.

Buriel

DEMON and a wandering duke of the air. Buriel has many dukes and servants to do his bidding. All are evil and are hated by other spirits. They must be sum- moned at night because they hate the day. When they appear, they have the form of a SERPENT with a virgin’s head and speak with a man’s voice. Buriel’s major 12 dukes are Merosiel, Almadiel, Cupriel, Sarviel, Casbriel, Nedriel, Bufiel, Futiel, Drusiel, Camiel, Drubiel, and Nastros.

Busyasta

In ZOROASTRIANISM, the DEMON of lethargy, long sleep, and sloth. Busyasta is a female demon with yellow, jaundiced skin and long claws. She makes men oversleep and neglect their religious duties.
