The Narrative of Satan

“Satan literally means adversary. Satan is primarily opposition and rebellion. It is the unbowed will in the face of oppression, the eternal rebel versus the ultimate dictator. It is an unrelenting rebellion waged against the antitheses of Satanic ideals and deeply held beliefs.”—Narratives 1(Satan): 1-3

The Narrative of Satan is the first chapter in The Satanic Narratives: A modern Satanic Bible, and introduces the aspect of Satan: representing  rebellion against arbitrary authority.

Invoking the name of Satan is inherently a call to action. In mythological literature, Satan is not passive: rather, Satan is always actively working to undermine power structures and deconstruct the assumptions of the powers that be. To be a Satanist, then, is more than individualism and self-identity: it is about the way you relate to the community as a whole.

You can learn more about how the United Aspects of Satan specifically invoke the aspect of Satan in The Satanic Narratives, and by looking around this website.


"The name of the fourth is Penemue: He discovered to the children of men every secret of their wisdom. He taught men to understand writing. Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every period of the world, even to this day."
