What is the Temple of Set?
The Temple of Set was started in 1975 by Michael. A Aquino.
It was given its title after Aquino stated that the Egyptian god Set spoke to him. Aquino was a member of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan until he and others left the organization over administrative differences. The philosophy of The Temple of Set stresses self-enhancement through education and experimentation.
The book, The Jewelled Tablets of Set, articulates degrees within the order:
1st degree - Setian
2nd degree - Adept
3rd degree - Priest/Priestess
4th degree - Magister/Magistra Templi
5th degree - Magus/Maga
