Term: Baphomet

A term that first appeared during the trials of the Knights Templar. Although there have been many suggestions as the source of the term, including mystical ones, its etymology is unknown. In a book by occultist Eliphas Levi, he produced a drawing of Baphomet that he also identified as “The Sabbatic Goat.” It has been adapted as part of the Devil card found in many Tarot decks.
