Codex Saerus (The Black Book of Satan) By Christos Beest (Richard Mould)

The "Codex Saerus" (The Black Book of Satan) is a ritual book of the Order of Nine Angles, free domain (free from copyright) as stated by Christos Beest (Richard Mould). In different parts, they were sold in the form of typewritten manuscript, and only for the few. I made of it a readable manuscript for easy use in temples and gatherings. I am in possession of the master copies on "Microsoft Words." This, was also in agreement with Xaphan (J.F, Houston, Texas), leader of a temple.

According to tradition, each Master or Mistress who was responsible for a particular Satanic Temple or group, was given on his or her assumption of that responsibility, a copy of the Black Book of Satan. The Black Book contained the basic Satanic rituals, instructions relating to ceremonial magick in general. It was the duty of the Master or Mistress to keep this book safe, and non-Initiates of the Temple were forbidden to see it. Copies were forbidden to be made, although Initiates above the grade of External Adept were allowed to see and read the Temple copy.


In traditional Satanism (i.e. those using the Septenary System: this system also being known as the Hebdomadry) this practice continued until quite recently when the Grand Master representing traditional groups decided to allow Initiates of good standing to copy the work. This decision was recently extended to enable specialist publication in a limited edition.

The whole text of the traditional Black Book is included in the present work,
together with several additional chapters (e.g. Self-Initiation; Organising and Running a Temple). These additions make this present work a concise practical handbook for those seriously interested in the Black Arts.
