Did Anton Lavey Start the Temple of Set?


  1. Michael Aquino started the Temple of Set. He was a part of the Church of Satan, which Anton LaVey founded, but left because he felt that the CoS’ vision of Satan didn’t fit his own.
    The major difference between the CoS and the ToS is that the CoS is atheistic or agnostic, and the ToS is mainly theistic.

  2. No, he just made claims to have been involved in its creation. His claims were proven false, as was much of what he said…

  3. Nope, Anton LaVey formed the Church of Satan in 1966. The Temple of Set was formed later by Michael Aquino, after leaving the COS sometime around 1975. The two organizations have VERY different sets of beliefs.
    I don’t know what the heck Eskimo Joe is talking about. Anton LaVey certainly never claimed to form the TOS. That would be like John Lennon claiming that he formed Wings.

  4. I guess that depends on how you look at it.
    Set has been around way longer than anything related to Satan.
    So technically, you need look no further than Egyptians.
