Baphomet was a deity that the Knights Templar were accused of worshipping, and that subsequently was incorporated into occult and mystical traditions. The name Baphomet appeared in trial transcripts for the Inquisition of the Knights Templar starting in 1307. It first came into popular English usage in the 19th century during debate and speculation on the reasons for the suppression of the Templars.
Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with the “Sabbatic Goat” image drawn by Éliphas Lévi, which contains binary elements representing the “symbolization of the equilibrium of opposites” (e.g. half-human and half-animal, male and female, good and evil, on and off, etc.). On one hand, Lévi’s intention was to symbolize his concept of balance that was essential to his magnetistic notion of the Astral Light, on the other hand, the Baphomet represents a tradition that should result in a perfect social order.
