Devil Belphegor (Lord of the Opening)

Belphegor illustration from the Dictionnaire Infernal

Belphegor is a demon who helps people to make discoveries. He seduces people by suggesting to them ingenious inventions that will make them rich. According to some demonologists, his power is stronger in April. Bishop and witch-hunters believe that Belphegor tempts by means of laziness.

Belphegor originated as the Assyrian Baal-Peor, the Moabitish god associated with licentiousness and orgies. It was worshipped in the form of a phallus.

As a demon, he is described in Kabbalistic writings as the “disputer”, an enemy of the sixth Sephiroth “beauty.” When summoned, he can grant riches, the power of discovery and ingenious invention. His role as a demon was to sow discord among men and seduce them to evil through the apportionment of wealth.

Belphegor (Lord of the Opening) was pictured in two quite different fashions: as a beautiful naked woman and as a monstrous, bearded demon with an open mouth, horns, and sharply pointed nails.

Belphegor was sent from Hell by Lucifer to find out if there really was such a thing on earth as married happiness. Rumor of such had reached the demons but they knew that people were not designed to live in harmony. Belphegor’s experiences in the world soon convinced him that the rumor was groundless.

Belphegor is the chief demon of the deadly sin Sloth.


A twisted God of smiths and metal-workers, Later, he became one of the demons in hell who had lived among humans for a short period of time. There, he developed a distaste to women and relationships, but in other accounts, he often took the form of a beautiful woman. It was possible to summon him with sacrifices of excrement, and he gave his conjurors gifts of discovery and ingenious invention. he uses his cunning to craft hundreds of malicious weapons for his fellow demons. Said to be born on earth to a human mother and demonic father, he must return to his birthing grounds three times each year to recharge his infernal power.
