The Psalter of Cain consists of a series of devotional magical works to Cain, holy ancestor of sorcerers. Its magical foci are dedicated specifically to the Ancestral Manes of the Sabbatic Current, the shade-mothers and fathers of the Company of the Wise.

Historically, the figure of Biblical Cain is known from the context of Italian witchcraft and Romany magic, as well as esoteric orders of Freemasonry and the Society of the Horseman’s Word. However, it is from the British witchcraft-lineages of the Cultus Sabbati that Cain has come to modern occult prominence as the especial patron of the Witch’s Art, the embodiment of Exile and Opposition explicit within the Elder Craft. In its rarefied embodiment of Crooked Path Sorcery – the ever—deviating path of Bane and Blessing, the power of Cain arises from his mythic forms of Transgressor-against-God, First Murderer, Wandering Exile, and First Tamer of the Horse, among others. These Cainite arcana received their highest ritual and literary expression in Andrew D. Chumbley’s Dragon-Book of Essex.

The Psalter of Cain is the first public work of joint authorship of the magical order Cultus Sabbati, its pages drawn from the collective work of its present initiatic body. As a work of devotional rite, charm, and incantation, the book manifests the transcendent Sabbatic vision of Cainite Gnosis: the radiance which illumines the Nocturnal Eden, the light of vision-anointed eyes. The book features new contributions from the following authors:

Andrew D. Chumbley
Robert Fitzgerald
Frater A.B.A.
Soror T.A.
Frater A.Z.
Daniel A. Schulke
Soror I.S.
Soror S.I.
Frater A.A.
Frater R. I.

In addition, The Psalter also features works from the outer sodality of the Cultus, the solitary companions of The Companie of the Serpent-Cross. Its progression of rite and charm is incepted by a Poem by Andrew D. Chumbley, and a Consummatum by Daniel A. Schulke. The book is produced to the highest Xoanon standard, with a design wholly opposite the Cainite Arcanum. 110 pages, octavo format, printed letterpress, and illustrated by Fraters A.A., Soror T.A. and Frater A.H.I.

  1. An excellent book! By far the most ‘practical’ book Xoanon has published as it is literally a collection of practices, as well as rituals, myths, and meditations. The contents are manifested from one of the groups outer sodalities ‘The Companie of the Serpentine Cross’ and extremely rich and diverse. Obviously, the central focus of nearly all its contents is the figure of Cain, the “atavistic patron of the Curren.” I have found this book to be a deep repository of wisdom, arcana, lore, and atavistic energies; and think it will be of value to any practitioner interested in Sabbatic Craft and Cainite Gnosis.
