Julian Vayne's poetic celebration of Baphomet is a passionate journey of the evolution of this being through history, from Knights Templar through the Eliphas Levi, through Parisian satanism, through Kenneth Grant and into chaos magick, entheogens and NDEs. Vayne understands Baphomet as a vibrant, living force, ever-present, rather than as a human construct - so the book is written from that premise, with appendices which include workings, exercises and visualisations. The author is a practising magician with over 30 years experience, and is a popular Treadwell's instructor.
