The great mystery of Cyprian is that he was both a Conjuror and a Christian. Take away the Sorcery and he is just another occultist that renounced magic like Bartolo Longo. Take away the fact that he was a Bishop and he is just another wizard like Merlin. It is Cyprians ability to stand fully in both worlds that makes him unique and has finally come to the attention of the English speaking Occult community.
Cyprian doesn’t simply stand in these worlds, he integrates them fully. With Cyprian, the power by which the priest performs a funeral to lay the dead to rest, is the same power by which he can conjure them forth. The power to anoint the sick or bless items can also be used to lay curses or consecrate talismans. Most importantly, the power to exorcise demons is the same power by which they can be evoked and commanded.
In this talk Jason will discuss how the sacraments and sacramental rites can be exploited for Sorcery through the intercession of St Cyprian and how this most ennigmatic figure can for a bridge between Heaven and Hell, Pagan and Christian, Living and Dead.
