The Vampyre: Then & Now

Here is a list a references for the Vampyre Lore and Mythology

Some of the first historical vampyres

 

The 17th Century

  • In History the lore of vampires spread throughout many cultures, some believed the undead was buried and then arose.  They believed it was imperative to cut off the heads
  • The term “psychic vampire” was popularized in the 1960s by Anton LaVey and his Church of Satan. LaVey wrote on the topic in his book, The Satanic Bible, and claimed to have coined the term.[10] LaVey used psychic vampire to mean a spiritually or emotionally weak person who drains vital energy from other people. Adam Parfrey likewise attributed the term to LaVey in an introduction to The Devil’s Notebook.[11]
  • Terms used to describe the substance or essence that psychic vampires take or receive from others include: energy,[1] qi (or ch’i), life force, prana,[1] and vitality. There is no scientific or medical evidence supporting the existence of the bodily or psychic energy they allegedly drain
  • Arnold Paole (Arnont Paule in the original documents; an early German rendition of a Serbian name or nickname, perhaps Арнаут Павле, Arnaut Pavle; died c. 1726) was a Serbian hajduk who was believed to have become a vampire after his death, initiating an epidemic of supposed vampirism that killed at least 16 people in his native village of Meduegna (also rendered as Metwett; likely a German rendition of Serbian “Medveđa)”, located at the West Morava river in Trstenik, Serbia.[1][2][3][4]

 

Medical source of the myth

Vampyre Evocation

I call to the vampyre hunter of prey

I call to the vampyre energy on this day

Come help me compel those to my arms

Imbue me with the power to charm

Come to me on the endless night

Grant me the power as I read this rite

I invoke your primal force into me

The magick is cast so mote it be
