Baphomet is an enigmatic, goat-headed figure found in several instance in the history of occultism. From the Knights Templar of the Middle-Ages and the Freemasons of the 19th century to modern currents of occultism, Baphomet never fails to create controversy. But where does Baphomet originate from and, most importantly, what is the true meaning of this symbolic figure and its Pose.  

 

Robin Good-Fellow (or Puck) is a mythological fairy said to be a personification of land spirits. Bearing several attributes of Baphomet and other deities, he is here shown on the cover of a 1629 book surrounded by witches


 

The ancient Celtic god Cernunnos is traditionally depicted with antler horns on his head, sitting in “lotus position”, similar to Levi’s depiction of Baphomet. Although the history of Cernunnos is shrouded in mystery, he is usually said to be the god of fertility and nature.

  

 

In Britain, an aspect Cerennunos was named Herne. The horned god has the Satyr-like features of Baphomet along with its emphasis on the phallus.


 

Recently, Controversy has surrounded An 8½-foot-tall, 1½-ton bronze monument featuring a goat-headed Satan which will be unveiled at a secret, ticketed event in Detroit after the owner of a popular restaurant and entertainment complex backed out and opponents issued threats. The  Baphomet, which is backed by an inverted pentagram and flanked by statues of two young children gazing up at the creature, shows Satan with horns, hooves, wings and a beard.

I don’t understand really what the piffle is all about.   If we look at this statue carefully and compare it to other notable statues throughout recent history – it is the same.  This was manufactured, manufactured to sell books.  It is important to know this while trying to place ‘Levi’s’ image in perspective. Because Alphonse was trying to sell books and blow minds. All of the authors of this stuff from that era were vying to be the authority on the Hermetic Mysteries and Alchemy. It was incredibly fashionable. 

 

A comparison made between Masip’s “Christ with Eucharist” and the ceremonial magician Eliphas Lévi’s (1810 – 1875) “Baphomet” leaves little doubt that they have much in common. Any argument to the effect that Lévi was merely counterfeiting a truly good genuine fails when held up to the light of scripture, where the second commandment clearly prohibits what Masip and other religious artists have done.

The arms bear the Latin words SOLVE (separate) and COAGULA (join together), i.e., the power of “binding and loosing” usurped from God and, according to Catholic tradition, from the ecclesiastical hierarchy acting as God’s representative on Earth.


Baphomet  (/ˈbæfɵmɛt/; from Medieval Latin Baphometh, Baffometi, Occitan Bafometz) is a term originally used to describe an idol or other deity that the Knights Templar were accused of worshiping.  Throughout the history of Western occultism, the name of the mysterious Baphomet is often invoked. Although it became commonly know name in the twentieth century, mentions of Baphomet can be found in documents dating from as early as the 11th century.

It should be noted that In the 18th century, speculative theories arose that sought to tie the Knights Templar with the origins of Freemasonry.

  
The most famous depiction of Baphomet is found in Eliphas Levi’s “Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie“, a 1897 book that became a standard reference for modern occultism. Levi certainly had a warped sense of humour.  

“The name of the Templar Baphomet, which should be spelt kabalistically backwards, is composed of three abbreviations: Tem. ohp. AB., Templi omnium hominum pacts abbas, “the father of the temple of peace of all men”. [1. Eliphas Levi, Dogmes et Rituels de la Haute Magie]

Shortly after the release of Levi’s illustration, the french writer and journalist Léo Taxil released a series of pamphlets and books denouncing Freemasonry, charging lodges with worshiping the devil. At the center of his accusations was Baphomet, which was described as the Mason’s object of worship.

Whatever the case may be, the most likely connection between Freemasonry and Baphomet is through symbolism, where the idol becomes an allegory for profound esoteric concepts. The Masonic author Albert Pike argues that, in Freemasonry, Baphomet is not an object of worship, but a symbol, the true meaning of which is only revealed to high-level initiates.

Baphomet – the popular image may have originated from the Tarot Deck 

 

from the early eighteenth century Tarot of Marseilles by Jean Dodal.

Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the later Tarot image of the Devil in the Rider-Waite design.

According to an entry in Wikipedia 

The Baphomet is an imagined pagan deity, (i.e., a product of Christian folklore concerning pagans) revived in the 19th century as a figure of Satanism. It first appeared in a late 12th-century Provençal poem as a corruption of “Muhammad”[1], but later it appeared as a term for a pagan idol in trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar in the early 1300s. However, in the 19th century the name came into popular English-speaking consciousness with the publication of various works of pseudo-history that tried to link the Knights Templar with conspiracy theories elaborating on their suppression. The name Baphomet then became associated with a “Sabbatic Goat” image drawn by Eliphas Lévi.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baphomet

Therefore, Baphomet, as Occultist Lévi’s 1861 illustration suggests, and has occasionally been portrayed as a synonym of Satan or a demon, a member of the hierarchy of Hell.  In other words the image has no LINEAGE before or beyond LEVI.   It is a complete and utter product of his imagination.  

 
“Blessed are the destroyers of false hope”

Pan was a prominent deity in Greece. The nature god was often depicted with horns on its head and the lower body of a goat. Not unlike Cerenunnos, Pan is a phallic deity. Its animalistic features are an embodiment of the carnal and procreative impulses of men.

Pope Sylvester II and the Devil (1460). In Christianity, the devil has similar features to the pagan gods described above as they are the main inspiration for these depictions. The attributes embodied by these gods became the representation of what is considered evil by the Church.

  So, why did George Washington agree to the commission of sitting for this pose?  Because he was a Freemason 

The above statue caused so much controversy that it had to be removed from the US Capitol Rodena and placed where it would be less seen. The controversy apparently had nothing to do with Washington allegedly being in the same Satanic position as Baphomet is traditionally depicted in, it was rather attributed to George not wearing any shirt.

Today, the symbol is associated with anything relating to occultism, ritual magic, witchcraft, Satanism and esoterica. Baphomet often pops up in popular culture to identify anything occult.   

Baphomet’s hands form the “sign of Hermetism” – which is a visual representation of the Hermetic axiom “As Above, So Below”. This dictum sums up the whole of the teachings and the aims of Hermetism, where the microcosm (man) is as the macrocosm (the universe). Therefore, understanding one equals understanding the other.

In conclusion,  If you think this symbol is evil or have been mislead, you are what is called a “non-initiate” who is considered “profane” to the secret mysteries and secret knowledge that is contained in such stories, words or image. 

The whole purpose of this is kabbalist control – divide and conqueror these are those who use secret words or allegories in order to conceal the truth of mans thirst for knowledge.   It’s all a game
