¶ Completed in early 2004, the Sermon formed a portion of the "Monadic Transmission" series of texts originally issued in hand-written, hand-illustrated editions of one copy only. This unique grimoire concerns the sorcerous precept of Unfettered Desire, as expounded in parable form by the twin sexual hypostases of the Sabbatic Agapae. The book gives voice to a connubial dialectic patterned upon 26 aphoristic formulae or "Sermons" and their accompanying calligraphic sigils. As a whole, the book exposits diverse formulae of magical adoration, invoking the eternal mystae of The Beloved. The original 2004 manuscript of 'The Satyr's Sermon' was accompanied by a sigilised communion wafer divided into four parts -- the 'Corpus Satyri'. The talisman that was made for the deluxe version of the book is based on the original.
