Catholic Encyclopedia: Devil Worship

In the early days each nation had its own natural gods; hence racial rivalry and hatred. Greeks and Romans may have worshipped their divinities, fondly believing them to be good. But the Christian Scriptures declare that all the gods of the Gentiles are demons. Magical practices and occultism, forms of devil worship appear in the heresy history of medieval Europe.

  1. In 744 A.D. the Synod of Leptinnes approved the following baptismal formula for Christianizing the pagan Anglo-Saxons:
    “Do you renounce the Demon?”

    “I renounce the Demon.”

    “And all relations with the Demon?”

    “I renounce all relations with the Demon.”

    “And all the works of the Demon?”

    “I renounce all the works of the Demon, and all his words, and Thor, and Odin, and Saxnot, and all evil beings that are like them.”

    In the year 959 A.D. King Edgar outlawed all forms of pagan religious practice and that Christianity be adopted in place of the native forms of worship:

    “We demand that every priest zealously promote Christianity and totally extinguish every manifestation of heathenism; that he forbid worship at wells, necromancy, divination and enchantment; the vain practices carried on with spells, with elder trees and various other trees, and with stones. We demand that on feast days heathen songs and diabolical games be abstained from.”
