Divinum Argumentum

The Three Cults


I Cult of Luciferus

An angel, bearer of light
therefore, servant of the Ancient One
An angel, star of the morning
therefore, watcher at the foot of the King
Luciferus, crowned with neon countenance:
-the enlightenment of Jupiter; the beauty of Venus
-the angel of the Heavenly Host, his appliance

II Cult of Prometheus

An Olympian god, 'brother' of the great Zeus
therefore, whose immortality remained in books
A creator god, said to be the father of mankind
therefore, whose account celebrated as myth of its kind
A god, giver of light -the fire from the gods
therefore, whose genius was a crime against heaven
Prometheus, hailed as 'forethought' -the god of creation
-the champion of mans' beginning
-the intelligence designed as mans' attempt to explain his origin

III Cult of Christus

The Messiah, foretold by the magicians and prophets
whose birth, light from the heavens is so pure and bright
The Anointed One, to rise from the nobles and kings
whose life, to earth is the light burning as an offering
The Son of God, to restore the union of man and divine
whose death, is life to him; the light itself is genuine
