On the Eve of the Autumn Equinox, 2018, I was consecrated Sophia Melitodes within the Ecclesia Gnostica Universalis. Inspired by my consecration, and by this organisation’s commitment to publishing and performing new rituals and masses, I created Liber Sophia: a feminine-centric revision of the Gnostic Mass which explores the Mysteries of Birth, Initiation and Inspiration, Wisdom and the Pentecost.
Though Liber Sophia was issued by order of the Sovereign Sanctuary of the Holy Ghost under the auspices of the Ecclesia Gnostica Universalis, both bodies wish the light of the gnosis to reverberate free unto the aeons. Thus this ritual is in no way limited to an EGU context; all may be free to perform Liber Sophia as they will.
The inaugural performance of Liber Sophia took place on the 8th December, 2019 in Atlanta, GA, under the auspices of the Temple of Our Lady of the Abyss.
