Seth: personification of evil?
Abstract: Contemporary magical practitioners have always been interested in the ‘problem of evil’ – the nature of good and bad action. Take for example Helena Blavatsky’s statement – ‘demon est deus inversus’ to be found in her highly influential and monument work ‘The Secret Doctrine’ (1888:1.411). This was later adopted by the poet W B Yeats as his magical motto in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Most practitioners believe that the ancient Egyptian god Seth is the prototype for the contemporary archetype of Lucifer, Satan or the Devil. I want to take a brief look, in context, at the famous image of Seth deriding Apophis, (the demonic / chaotic serpent of ‘non-being’) as a leitmotiv for the nature or ‘personification’ of evil in ancient thought.

  1. Dr. Bruno Sandkuehler

    I just came across your fine translation of the Chapel Rouge (Karnak) description, and I would like to propose a slight correction: the late King should be Philip Arrhidaeus (instead of Affhideaeus).
    Best greetings from Dr. Bruno
