Born in the soviet union and descended from a matrilineal line of witches, natasha helvin offers a rare look into the secret practices of russian black magic, passed down from teacher to disciple for generations both orally and through their grimoires bound in black.Drawing from her own experience, helvin provides insight into the fundamental ideology of black magic practitioners, from the universal laws of magic to the principles of morality.She explains a mages view on fate and predestination, how the world was created, and their relationship with the demons that grant them their power.She examines the demonic pantheon as well as how a black sorcerer is able to influence the forces in the universe and pass on his or her powers and knowledge to further generations.Exploring the history of occult practices in russia, including how christianity had a profound effect upon magic and witchcraft, helvin shows how attempts to forcibly convert the russian population to the christian faith were widely resisted, and instead of these ancient pagan practices disappearing, they blended with christian belief.Authorities repainted old pagan gods as demons in order to eradicate ancient traditions.Black magic became labelled as defiantly anti-christian simply for preserving the old ways, and as a result, some branches of black magic evolved as a reaction against enforced christianity and practitioners proudly accepted the label of blasphemer or heretic.A 6" x 9" paperback book with 176 pages.
