‘The Devil’s Crown’ is the accolade of genius, awarded to poets, and leaders of men who would speak in riddles and puns the wisdom of ages. Whether Scop or Skald, the words inspired by the Muse live on in vibrant tradition under the shining aureole of the Holy Fool. It is the arcane mark of the ‘other.’ This book illuminates some of that light, sharing insights to the precious mysteries of the Robert Cochrane Tradition. His letters and works now collated finally into a single volume – ‘The Star Crossed Serpent III: The Taper that Lights the Way,’ find further expression in this companion volume.’ (Shani Oates)

“If I call upon my ancestors, I call upon forces than are within myself and exterior…, now you know what I mean when I speak of the burden of Time. (Robert Cochrane)

“The tree carried by a man wearing a red cap is a symbol of many things coalescing into two parts of the True and only Faith.” (Robert Cochrane)

“The first part is the masculine mysteries – in which is enshrined the search for the Holy Graal – and is the basis of the Arthurian legends. This is the order of the Sun – the Clan of Tubal Cain. ….In the distant past, the male clan was lead by a woman who was their priestess and chieftain . This is the origin of the legend of Robin Hood ….. and the tradition was followed through into the middle Ages when the Plantagenet Kings were officers of the masculine aspect of the Faith (The name ‘Plantagenet’ means ‘The Devil’s -Clan’). The effect of the masculine mysteries upon the world can hardly be under emphasized ….Law-making….and craftsmen’s guilds……The masculine mysteries were the direct creators of modern civilization as we know it now.” (Robert Cochrane)

The Craft of the Untamed sets out to present the main pillars of traditional witchcraft. Its premise is that a proper tradition is defined as a timeless unity. Outwardly the tradition bears a great diversity across different lands and spirit. Traditional witchcraft is found in various sodalities and groups across the world. Even so it is possible to discern several harmonious, shared themes. These themes are the land, the crossroads, death, night and the mountain of Venus. It is witchcraft where a human and angelic blood mingles to form a special pedigree that has shaped the archetypical image of the witch.

Traditional witchcraft is largely a peasant craft. These “black arts” are works of the earth and the black soil with all its mystery of death, growth and change. This book aims to present the craft free for needless obscuration. I have endeavored to reveal the richness of the tradition as it flows down through time and geographical space.

The reader will come to appreciate and understand the wise arts both infernal and celestial; the powers wielded by the denizens of the night will be accessible; and you will come to value them for their beauty and power.

Following on from the groundwork of the first volume prepared by Evan John Jones, the thread continues through expansion, evolution, and return to the Weaver Herself. Experiential research bears fruit, en-fleshing the seeds planted by previous workers of the lineage. Guided and inspired by tradition, prompted by oracular observation, intellect and mental detective work. Concepts and core principles of our Mythos and Praxis reveal a shift of awareness and a ‘Perennial Philosophy’. This is an ecumenical gnostic current that has revealed a deeper understanding of our work and its obligations, both to ourselves and to our ancestors.

Discussed here are subtle treasures unearthed within a rich heritage of  folklore, myth and legend. Overarching paradigms that include the Egregore, Clanship, Mysticism and Luciferianism.  These essays build upon the former volume,  expounding a vibrant dramatic aegis. Here find a new voice to herald the eternal paean, the Song of the Beloved: Promethean gnosis of the Star Crossed Serpent.

This book explores historical and contemporary ideas of witchcraft through the perspective of the Clan of Tubal Cain

– a closed Initiatory group aligned to the Shadow Mysteries within the Luciferian stream. As students of arte we mediate the ancestral stream, teaching through practice with the sacred tenets of Truth, Love and Beauty. The Word is thus manifest in deed and vision.

“A driving thirst for knowledge is the forerunner of wisdom. Knowledge is a state that all organic life posesses, wisdom is the reward of the spirit, gained in the search for knowledge. Truth is variable – what is true now, will not be true tomorrow, since the temporal truths are dependent upon ethics and social mores – therefore wisdom is possibly eternal Truth, untouched by man’s condition. So we must come to the heart of the People, a belief that is based upon Eternity, and not upon social needs or pressures – the ‘witch’ belief then is concerned with wisdom, our true name, then is the wise people and wisdom is our aim.”
– Robert Cochrane (1931-1966)
