Peter H. Gilmore is an American author and administrator of the
Church of Satan. He was appointed of the Church in 2001 by Magistra Blanche Barton. Within the church, he is known as "Magus Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan".
As a representative of the
Church of Satan, Gilmore has been interviewed on numerous televisionand radioprograms dealing with the topic of Satanism, including appearances on The History Channel, BBC, The Sci-Fi Channel, Point of Inquiry, and Bob Larson's Christianradio show.
Gilmore was raised in
upstate New York. He visited New York Cityregularly throughout his youth and moved to Hell's Kitchen in 1980.
Gilmore read "
The Satanic Bible" at age thirteen and has described The Church of Satanas "the motivating philosophical force in my life" ever since.
In 1989, he and his wife
Peggy Nadramiabegan publishing a Satanic journal, " The Black Flame", and continues to publish issues sporadically. In 2005, Gilmore wrote the new introduction to LaVey's " The Satanic Bible", and his essay on Satanism was published in the " Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature".
The Satanic Scriptures
Walpurgisnacht2007, a hardback edition of " The Satanic Scriptures", a book collecting his essays and other writings was released. On October 13, 2007, a paperback edition (ISBN 0976403595) was released. The book includes previously non-public rituals, such as Satanic marriages and funerals.
A large portion of the essays were released prior to the book; however, some of the essays included in the book are improved variations. Some, including the essay released in the excerpt, deal with what the Church of Satan deems to be pseudo-satanists, and those who refuse to affiliate with the Church, but instead form their own groups.
Other essays touch on the similarity between
fascistaesthetics and Satanism, along with a multitude of political issues that correlate to the Satanic viewpoint, as the released table of contents shows. Included, but not limited to, are issues such as terrorismin the United States, gay rights, and more.
Many of the rituals detailed in the book were previously only known to members of the priesthood in the Church of Satan, such as the wedding rite which was performed by founder Anton LaVey, along with the details for a Satanic funeral, assumed to be a variation on one such which was performed on him.
