Feast of Priapus in Hermeneuticon at Hermetic Libary


Priapus appears in all versions of the saints-of-eccelsia-gnostica-catholica in Liber XV, published during Aleister Crowley's lifetime. Priapus is not on the full list of any version, and is therefore a name celebrated only at performances when the complete Saints Collect is read.
