The worship of Satan, using rites which travesty Christian rites. If involves black magic, sorcery, and the invocation of demons and the forces of darkness, who are propitiated by blood sacrifices and similar rites.
In Christian cultures these ceremonies include the black mass, a mockery of the Christian rite. Medieval Christian writers tended to label any dualist sect (such as the Bogomils and Albigensians) as Satanist. From the later Middle Ages, Satanism and Witchcraft were considered synonymous.
There was a Satanist revival in the late nineteenth century, and evidence exists that the cult persists. Satanists, or Luciferians, believe that Satan is the power behind the processes of nature. What is natural is acceptable. Sin is only what is unpleasant. Unlike the Christian God — stern and moralistic, repressive and chastening — Satan is the leader of a liberated people who are free and actually encouraged to indulge in the good things of life, including uninhibited sexual activity.
