Sigil of Baphomet Wall Sconce
One of the first mentions of Baphomet can be traced back to an eleventh century letter penned by a crusader named Anselm of Ribemont, who describes a Templar ritual to Baphomet and God held before a battle. In more recent times The Church of Satan, created by Anton LeVay in 1966, has adopted the image of Baphomet as their insignia, calling it the “Sigil of Baphomet,” and using it to suggest that logic—specifically Luciferian logic—stand as an individual’s guiding “moral” force. Yet, at its core, Baphomet is not a deity meant to be worshipped, not is it a steadfast representation of Luciferian logic, but instead something bigger, more widely encompassing.
Baphomet is a symbol that is meant to represent the sum total of all things in the universe, acting both as parallel and paradox, showing the observer and student alike that concepts like “good” and “evil” exist only through perspective, and that all creatures, things, and ideas have a dark and light side within. Through Levi’s description we find that Baphomet is a symbolic representation of balance and necessity, in all things.
