You will also find resources to guide you in getting to know these syncretisms further, and ideas for devotional practices based upon them. Available here!

Devotio Antinoo: The Doctor’s Notes, Volume One (The Red Lotus Library, 2011). The culmination of nearly ten years of research and devotion on the part of its author, presented now for the use of anyone who wishes to develop a devotional practice with Antinous, the gods with whom he was syncretized, Hadrian, other Divi, and many more divine figures. Learn the holy days and festivals of the year, the hymns and prayers for different occasions, the ancient texts that have survived in papyrus fragments, literary excerpts, and inscriptions, and ideas on different devotional activities that can be performed as well. Everything you need to practice in the tradition of the Ekklesía Antínoou is contained in this book, and much more! Available here!

And, a few suggestions on interpretive strategies and how to integrate them into cultic practice. Available here!

A Garland for Polydeukion (The Red Lotus Library, 2012). The first detailed and dedicated treatment of Polydeukion, the heroized youth who was a foster-son to Herodes Attikos, from a polytheist perspective. Learn all about Polydeukion and his fellow Trophimoi, Achilles and Memnon, as well as Herodes Attikos, his wife Appia Annia Regilla, and their other children. Poetry inspired by their modern polytheist devotion is also included, as well as several essays and some fiction dealing with them in various ways. Available here!

A Serpent Path Primer (The Red Lotus Library, 2012). An exploration of the Serpent Path, the Ekklesía Antínoou’s theological system and spiritual methodology for mapping the syncretisms of Antinous, opening a divine window into further relationship with him and the deities and heroes to whom he is linked. Included in the volume is an in-depth examination of syncretism, both historically and in its most fruitful modern polytheist understandings, and nine Appendices with material ranging from spells and rituals to poems related to the Serpent Path, its usage, and its results. Available here!

Ephesia Grammata: Ancient History and Modern Practice The Ephesia Grammata, the “Ephesian Letters” (also known as the “aski kataski formula” or the “Orphic formula”), are a set of well-known magical words from antiquity that appeared in spells, protective amulets, and other sources in the ancient and late antique Mediterranean worlds. This small volume will allow you to learn their history, see examples of their usage in ancient spells and lead tablets, understand their role as protective amulets, become familiar with the Ephesia Grammata as divine grammatical beings and methods to connect with polytheistic deities, and to establish a practice with the letters as a system of divination!
