In beginning this article upon the nature of the traditional Sabbatic Mysteries it is pertinent for me to
qualify my own position and thus make some statement of the initiatic provenance which permits me to
write authoritatively upon these matters. It is therefore that i make some statement of my own position in
the craft; - at the time of writing this article and for the past few years I have been serving as the Magister
of the Cultus Sabbati; having received the formal passing-on of the power from two lineages of the
Sabbatic Tradition, both of which pre-date those modern revivalist forms of witchcraft, which have
become generically , nominalised as "wicca"* . Both of my informing catenae of initiation are currently
focused in Essex, although the members of various cells and the resources drawn upon by them are
scattered throughout a much wider area with the consequence that the zones of governance served by the
Cult constitute a web unsuited to definition by temporal measures. The Cultus Sabbati is a present
recension of the Craft Tradition constituted by various cells, each of which are using different formulae
and modes of praxis covering the spectrum of the Arte Magical. In stating my own position I should make
it apparent that, as Magister, I am responsible for the overall co-ordination and direction of the Cult in it's
present phase of development; this does not infer a subjugation of individuals to a single figurehead, but
rather to the contrary, the functional role of the Magister permits a cohesion of the earthly power-zones
created through the autonomy of each initiate and thus a focus in an holistic design or matrix. Although
the lineal descent of the Cultus Sabbati from sources, which are defined as belonging to Traditional
Witchcraft, is herein - given the present context - the moot point of interest, it is also pertinent for the
reader to bear in mind that our lineal descent by other roots has affiliations with a catena of High
Magicians dating back many centuries, namely the O.T.O, and has established links upon the inner with
various other bodies of transmission and thus the contexts in which the nature and functions of the Cultus
Sabbati may be interpreted are many and diverse.
