The Satanic Pentagram of Baphomet

The Satanic Pentagram of Baphomet

Anton Sandor La Vey called himself a Doctor of “Satanic Theology.” He was also styled “The Black Pope of America” and “High Priest of the ineffable Kingdom of Hell.” He dressed in a black suit with a Roman collar and wore a silver Pentagram of Baphomet, the Black Goat, on a silver chain around his neck.

According to Peter Haining in The Anatomy of Witchcraft, 1972, La Vey’s followers “acknowledge Satan as a symbolic personal saviour who advocates sexual freedom. They make a great point, too, of informing everyone that the word traditionally associated with their master, EVIL, is actually LIVE spelt backwards.”
