Start your review of The Pillars of Tubal-Cain Write a review Shelves: favorites The Pillars of Tubal-Cain is a very well researched book, and has an almost mythopoetic feel to it in places. It is not a book to simply be sat and read in a single sitting, but rather savored and digested over a period of time. If you are interested in true, traditional witchcraft and magic in Europe, then this is one of the best books to find on the subject.
While there were some minor typographical errors in the book, it did not take away much from my personal enjoyment of the book. Alongside The Pillars of Tubal-Cain is a very well researched book, and has an almost mythopoetic feel to it in places. That said, truths right out in the open for those wanting to move beyond well beyond the pop pagan stuff.
Jan 23, Angie rated it it was amazing I am still pondering this one Most European ideas were brought over via the old testament. But the Hebrews who wrote the old testament were influenced by a variety of systems. Each of these countries had a system of gods numbering seven, one for each off the known planets including the sun and the moon. These Angels took on human form and were thus called watchers. Eventually these watchers fell in love with human women and mated with them giving rise to a race of people called the nephilim.
These were giant people with magical powers. Eventually the Flood would come and wash them all away. Supposedly he cried out tears of repentance and he was the angel in charge of all the other angels. He is worshiped as a peacock. Interesting that the throne in Iran was called the peacock throne. According to Luciferian witch craft Lucifer the light bringer ascended for the reason of bringing mankind, who at the time were savages, into enlightenment. When Lucifer and his angles descended they taught human kind religion, civilization, magick and metal working.
Now remember that Tubal Cain was a metal worker and metal workers had magical abilities. Of course Christianity turned Lucifer into a boogey man called Satan. There was documents of giant races documented through out thee world in places like Shamabalah, Atlantis, Arabia and even Amorites. They were big and supposedly had magical abilities. Later on they would be wiped out by the flood. Many mythologies talk about a race of giants being wiped out by newer gods or being wiped out by some cataclysm.
Check out the titans in Greek mythology and the Jotuns in Norse mythology. Many symbols have been perverted in Judeo Christian Europe. The snake was typically a symbol of wisdom. Recall that it was the snake who told Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge to help open her eyes so she could grow up. In the bible the snake wass turned into something evil.
The Tower of Babylon which Nimrod, another giant, tried to ascend was not a tower to challenge god but rather it was representative of the Watcher trying to reach godliness and redemption. The Tree had a similar meaning and in fact old religions worshipped the tree or by a tree.
Lilith in Babylonian mytholgy used to live in a tree until Inanna told Gilgamesh to cut it down. In this tree there dweelt an owl and a snake. The owl was a symbol of certain Goddesses and wisdom. Lilith later became Adams first wife and she in fact later left him because she would not submit to an inferior position. Lilith would copulate with animals and other entities and would give rise to a race of demons. Lilith was a succubus who seduced men in their sleep.
Some say that Lilith gave birth to the faery people. Women use her as model for liberation. Queen Sheba is sometimes equated with Lilith in that some legends portray her as having owl feet or cloven feet.
Sheba means seven and corresponds to the seven angels. It is surmised that Queen Sheba and Solomon were occultist and that Solomon who controlled demons to build his empire taught Sheba some of her secrets. Occult wisdom which originated in the Middle East came to Europe via many directions. One direction was Jews bringing it over when they were enslaved by the Romans. Occult knowledge also came over when the Crusaders and Templar knights returned from fighting in Jerusalem.
The founder of the rosy cross order learned Cabbalah in Damscus and the horned god came from the Middle East as well. The Pillars of Tubal Cain is a book roughly pages in length,but it is packed with information. I strongly advise reading.
The Pillars of Tubal-Cain
With the exception of a few outliers, this is the final piece in a body of related works produced variously, sometimes individually and sometimes in collaboration, by Michael Howard and Nigel Jackson. While other titles from these two authors have dealt specifically with what could be called witchcraft, The Pillars of Tubal Cain takes a slightly more divergent track, considering angelic magick, but pursuing it in a way that is resolutely conscious of how it relates to witchcraft, and in particular those variants of said craft that are described as dual observance, in which Christian cosmology provides a mythological framework. According to information posted by Howard, the book was begun by Jackson, with a few draft chapters then sent by the publisher to Howard who completed the majority of the book when Jackson discontinued his involvement. In an Amazon review, Jackson has repudiated this book and his role in it, apparently finding the sulphurous whiff of diabolism a little too embarrassing in his advancing years. The tone carries with it all the enthusiastic vitriol tinged with regret that one would expect of a new convert or a remorseful addict, and sees a struggle to replace the embracing of dark glamour with its inverse, a self-righteous and sanctimonious dismissal. Oh to be the easily empathic type who finds demonic energies dripping from books and irrevocably impacting their lives, when I see only mere paper and ink; it must make life so exciting, if a little tiring. Not only that, but in comparison to more specifically sabbatic-style titles, the focus here is on a slightly more palatable Lucifer, with his angelic siblings, fallen or otherwise, giving the Lightbearer an air of respectability.
