We are honoured that Zemaemidjehuty, the scribe of The Book of Flesh and Feather, has chosen Theion Publishing to realize the manifestation of this very important project. A truly spellbinding work, The Book of Flesh and Feather is the central liturgical and ritual book of a devoted group of initiates of the Great Djehuty.
The Book of Flesh and Feather is a grand theurgical opus which includes a large number of ritual instructions, exorcisms, spells, amulets, and hymns which invoke the Great God and exalt His BA. The entire ritual cycle aims first at inducing a necessary state of Chaos after which the theurgist is slowly pulled into the Light of Djehuty’s Gnosis. Concluding the work is an elaborate initiatory ceremony which allows the operator to become the Word of God and go forth as an emanation of the Deity.
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.
In keeping with the unique stylistic demands of the text and the Gnosis it embodies, the book has a larger format and is printed in two colors, black and red. Illustrated throughout by the author himself, The Book of Flesh and Feather is very much a magical book rather than a book on magic and manifests a powerful spiritual, esoteric current.
On the author: Zemaemidjehuty (Zemmi) is a poet-priest and theurgist in service to the Great God Djehuty. The founder of the Church of Flesh and Feather, his work and research focuses amongst others on the mysterious Coptic Christ and Sophia, Kemetic Djehuty, and the conflation of the three as divine aspects of the same Supreme Deity. Living in central Illinois with his wife, Zemaemidjehuty publishes and lectures frequently on topics ranging from liturgical languages, folklore, and spirituality to prose and poetry. Zemmi is also the preeminent Vachel Lindsay scholar and helps maintain the poet’s home which is a state historic site.
