Anyone who has read The Bible of Cthulhu will understand the importance of iconography and symbolism in The Cult of Cthulhu. Our visual imagery and spiritual symbolism reinforces the religious aesthetic of our practice and keeps The Cultist grounded and resonating within the cosmic void. They are anchors to our faith, giving The Cult its own identity in a whirlwind of new age spiritual beliefs and paths.
In the years following Christ's death there was a period of Christian persecution by the Romans. In many places it was dangerous to be known as a Christian. Thus when two strangers met and thought they might be fellow believers, one of them could easily draw this symbol on the ground:
Recognizing the symbol, the stranger would draw the second line creating the famous "Jesus Fish":
It could be drawn quickly and erased just as easily, allowing believers to identify one another.
As we all know, Unification is a vital element to our path. It is with each other, not against, that The Cult of Cthulhu continues to thrive. And it is with this in mind that I offer to you all a means of identifying one another.
Every Thursday for the remainder of The Festive Season, new items will be added to the Cult Shop engraved with the symbols of our order. The Cult Sigil:
And the Cult Logo:
Allowing us to identify one another in public.
To have these symbols adorned upon you and your surroundings is to show pride in The Old Ones and your loyalty to The Cult of Cthulhu, and will also allow you to shine as a beacon for other cultists who recognize it in public.
"Wear the symbol of Cthulhu proudly emblazoned on your chest like the knights of old.
Scream our names as you charge into battle.
Let all know that The Cult of Cthulhu has arisen once again.
The Cult is big, too big for any of us alone.
It is about communion.
There is a saying in Africa:
If you want to go quickly; go alone.
If you want to go far; go together"
