Prologue :
   " You can't sell your soul if you don't have one. "
"Jim: Loud, articulate, well spoken, bull-headed (no visible horns, although he does turn crimson at a drop of a hat), body like a beached whale. Likes to laugh with deep wicked glee. Enjoys low light enviroments, up-lit rooms. " ...Ian, my boy, we are now living like bats in the ruins of a haunted house among the relics and ruins of an enviable past..."
'...y'know, She may well be one of the original cabalistic angels of prostitution', of course this statement could be easily written off as the inebriated prattling of a disgruntled ex-employee, however, it should be noted within the halls of a notorious bordello in downtown Stuttgart hang explicit and oddly gymnastic 19th century photographs that bare a striking resemblance to this enigmatic woman. More intriguing still, are the same features and flexibility clearly rendered in preliminary sketches (circa 1780) for Francisco Goya's 'naked maja'. Further research can procure reproductions (circa 1645) of Gianlorenzo Bernini's studies for his 'Ecstasy of St Teresa' revealing alternative positions, far less clothing, an all too familiar face and on one page a scrawled notation roughly translated as:
"... Mother of God! they'll be burying this one in a Y-shaped coffin."

Ex libris necessarius VerSache obscurus barbarus :
This extraordinary collection offers striking insight into the historical VerSache the Barbarian.
Compiled, Photographed, Edited, Rebound and Translated by Marjorie Chillblaine :
Today the most ancient of the original documents exist beginning with 600 leaves (or folios) made from hemp, Some folios are of single sheets, most are twice the width, then folded to accommodate 2 pages of text, The decorated pages often occurred on single sheets. The folios had lines drawn for the text, sometimes on both sides. Prick marks and guide lines can still be seen on some pages. The hemp is of high quality, although the folios have an uneven thickness, with some being almost leather, while others are so thin as to be almost translucent. Food, beer and coffee stains abound throughout ...

Concept Notes :
Jim : (Magnus Malus) There is good reason to believe that the (nite)-ram had a purely warlike meaning to the Celts, since it was sometimes represented in the company of a war god. A curious variant on ram symbolism was ram headed serpent, often shown in the company of of the antlered god Cern (Scottish) or Cernnunos (Irish). This hybrid creature combined the ram's symbolism of fertility and agression beside the snakes association with the underworld and renewal.

Jewelie : Alias Agrat (Iggereth) bat Mahlat : An ageless (well the wrinkles are starting to show, but its been 6 millenia. ) Qabalistic entity of whoredom, 1 of the 4 concubines of Sammael or Samael (Satanil, Samil, Satan, Seir, Salmael, etc. Jewish lore, speaks of him as the Angel of Death, chief ruler of the Fifth Heaven, one of the seven regents of this world ).
The other three are :
 Lilith : (תיליל)- the screech owl- In Jewish tradition, is a "creature of the night", enemy of infants, bride to Sammael. According to some texts, she is the queen of demons, pictured with wings and long flowing hair, and called the "mother of Ahriman" (B. B. 73b; 'Er. 100b; Nid. 24b). She predated Eve and is rumoured to have had sexual relations with Adam, " When Adam, doing penance for his sin, separated from Eve for 130 years, he, by impure desire, caused the earth to be filled with demons, or shedim, lilin, and evil spirits" (Gen. R. xx.; 'Er. 18b.) The Zohar ( רהז ) describes Lilith as "a hot fiery female who at first cohabited with man", but when Eve was created, "flew to the cities of the sea coast, " where she is "still trying to ensnare mankind." Talmudic references also state she has wings.
In the Cabala she is the demon of Friday and is represented as a naked woman whose body terminates in a serpent's tail.

The first traceable mention of Lilith occurs in a 10th-century folktale called the "Alphabet of Ben Sira" ( a collection of stories about heroes of the Bible and Talmud ), however it is suggested that her character is drawn from the "lili", female demonic spirits in Mesophotamian demonology, and known as "ardat lili".

In Talmudic lore, as also in Zoharistic Qabalah, most demons are mortal, but Lilith and two other notorious female spirits of evil (Naamah and Agrat bat Mahlat) will "continue to exist and plague man until the Messianic day, when God will finally extirpate uncleanliness and evil from the face of the earth." In Scholem's article one of the medieval writers in the magazine "Mada'e ha Yahudut" (II, 164ff.), Lilith and Sammael are said to have "emanated from beneath the throne of Divine Glory, the legs of which were somewhat shaken by their [joint] activity."

Isaiah 34:14-15 "The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate."

Aliases of Lilith : Abeko, Abito, Amizo, Batna, Eilo, Ita, Izorpo, Kali, Kea, Kokos, Lilith, Odam, Partasah, Patrota, Podo, Satrina, Talto. Lilith is also named "Astaribo" in medieval magic, "Avitue" in Rabbinic lore, "Bat Zuge" is a term for the evil Lilith when she is regarded as the 10th of the 10 unholy sefiroth or divine emanations issuing from the left side of God [Rf. "The Zolhar"]

Naamah ( literal translation : Pleasing) According to Rabbi Isaac, the sons of God, specifically Uzza and Azael, were corrupted by Naaman. Rabbi Simeon called her mother of demons, and Rabbi Hiya believed she was the "great seducer not only of men but of spirits and demons," and that, with Lilith, she "brought epilepsy to children." [Rf. "The Zohar I, 55a."] In "The Legends of the Jews I, 150", Naamah is the mother of the devil Asmodeus by the fallen angel Shamdan. (although other passages describes Asmodeus as marrying Lilith, who became his queen, It is also written that he was the off-spring of the union between Adam and Naamah, conceived whilst Adam was married to Lilith.).
