Labyrinthos Mysteries of Adonism
by David Beth
Pre-order in Spring 2020
Adonism is one of the most fascinating spiritual and magical systems of the early 20th Century. Virtually unknown outside the German speaking world, this ‘erotic Satanism’ had a great impact on German occultism through the writings of Dr. Musallam (Franz Sättler) and Friedrich Wilhelm (Rah Omir) Quintscher.
With the death of both main protagonists during the chaos of WWII, any organized and initiatic operations of this radical polytheist goddess religion ceased.
In the 1990s, David Beth was fortunate to have been initiated into Adonism by a surviving member of the original circle and to his knowledge was the only person subsequently practicing its Gnosis with a small group of initiates.
While also introducing some of its foundational concepts, Labyrinthos will mainly focus on presenting Beth’s own unique approach to and development of Adonism as a powerful anti-monotheist counter-initiation.
Die Sinnlichkeit, Franz von Stuck, c.1889.
In the future, Theion Publishing is planning to translate and release a small series of selected Adonist writings by Dr. Musallam and Rah Omir Quintscher to introduce their work to a wider international audience.
On the author: Born in Angola, Africa, David Beth is the co-owner of Theion Publishing and the founder of the Pandaemonic Current and Hierophant of its associated initiatic groups. University educated in Germany and the USA, he has received various Western esoteric transmissions and is well known for his past work as the former head of Michael Bertiaux’ Voudon Gnostic orders. For the past decade he has focused most of his attention on advanced work with a small group of dedicated esoteric students. David is also a Houngan Asogwe of Haitian Vodou and an initiate of Afro-centric secret societies. Having lived and travelled all over the world, David Beth now made his home in the South of Germany.
The Book of Flesh and Feather

The Book of Flesh and Feather is a truly magical work. An elaborate theurgical operation, the entire opus is a devotional ritual honoring the Great Djehuty. First inducing a necessary state of Chaos, the ritual then slowly pulls the theurgist into the light of His Gnosis.
This book includes spells, amulets, and hymns which invoke the Great God and exalt His BA. Concluding the work is an initiatory ceremony which allows the operator to become the Word of God and go forth as an emanation of Him.
Rooted in expert knowledge of Coptic, Egyptian and Greek source material, this unique work is a manifestation of years of dedicated practice emanating a real spiritual power and authority.

She of the Night
by Idlu Lili Regulus
Pre-order in Fall/Winter 2020
Theion Publishing is glad to welcome Idlu Lili Reguluswhose highly acclaimed debut release Hekate the Crossroads’ Dark Goddess (Ixaxaar 2019) made a great impact. Idlu Lili Regulus’ new work is nothing short of a magnum opus and will engage the highly complex and powerful figure of Lilith.
Investigating Mesopotamian, Hebrew & Semitic, Near Eastern Arabic, Greek as well as Northern European sources, this substantial text is designed to take the reader on an initiatory journey of discovery from the watery Abyss in the days of yore, via the ancient emanating Husk, passing the Three Cranes whose blessings are desired, lured onwards by the seducing song of the Sirens to finally reach the shores of the Drown-Mother of the Sea, the Lady of the Desolate Forest and Lussi Lucia in present day Scandinavia.
This tome is in equal parts a poetic ode, a love song fashioned in the form of a devotional, as it is a well-researched scholarly description of the mythological, archaeological as well as historical sources pertaining to the Goddess Lilith, Her origins, Her various forms, diverse offspring and rituals bespeaking Them all in ancient times.
She of the Night will be an indispensable work for anyone interested in Lilith in particular and the radiant, wild, divine feminine in general.
