Flipsnack Preview (Interior):
"Of all the daimons that have plagued or blessed mankind throughout history, our muse, Wisdom, is perhaps the most elusive of all. Known by many names and terms – Gnosis, Sapientia, Sophia, and Lucifer, among many others – this varied and challenging topic is difficult to discuss using mere semantics; so liquid are Its inherent qualities and so fierce is Its passion!
This spirit-force represents every manifested Idea and Ideal, be they creative intelligence or a self-annealing process that guides the pilgrim along the Path of Exile & Exalt. As a “living” and moving ethos/archetype/notion, Sapientia itself (regardless of chosen deific or prosaic name for it), is truly a discarnate entity. Its secrets are revealed simply, poignantly, and profoundly, but this gift comes at a certain price – a heavy and oftentimes formidable one at that!
The theme of this issue could not be more Luciferian in essence, as it stands on the very foundation of Luciferian praxis and applied tenets. In layman's terms, it revolves around the concept and application of 'Sacrifice' in the pursuit of Truth.
The Scalding of Sapientia is a compendium of personal operations, insights, viewpoints, journal entries and excerpts, detailed compilations and interpretations, notable turning points in ones occult journey, and specifically, the zeniths and nadirs one can experience when undertaking such a colossal mission that may come with realizations that may either make or break one's persona in the Cosmogony of the Possible."

Attention residents of Quebec: since government laws concerning the sale of printed publications and shipping are extremely complex (and because we cannot adequately customize our WebStore's settings to match the different tax rates applicable to each product and its corresponding shipping), the shipping option for Quebec was thus removed in order to comply with current regulations.
No worries, however – you can always order directly from us via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will, or course, provide you with a legitimate PayPal Invoice. Please accept our appologies for the inconvenience, and much obliged!
