The Aztecs were widely known for their human sacrifice, but a lot of what went on in their sacred rites has been lost. Diego Duran, a Dominican priest, wrote a huge amount on the Aztec rituals that he studied. What emerged was a picture of human sacrifice as a theater production.
Aztec sacrifices happened on a surprisingly frequent basis, and Duran as well as Franciscan missionary Bernardino de Sahagun describes one festival that included the sacrifice of a man who was dressed as and given the persona of the god Tezcatlipoca. He would have been picked out of a group of warriors who had been captured from a neighboring state, selected for his physical beauty and a few other traits like a slender build and perfect teeth.
Blemishes on the skin or even a speech impediment would disqualify someone from the position. If he gained weight in the year over which he was being coached and prepped for his starring role, he would be forced to drink saltwater until the weight was gone. After the year of preparation and training, he would be dressed in the traditional costume of Tezcatlipoca and assigned his name.
For a few months, he would live in the temple, be visited and worshiped by the upper echelons of society, and lead parades through the city before being locked in a cage at night to keep him from escaping.
For 20 days before his sacrifice, he was given four wives to do whatever he wanted with, and his hair was cut in the style of a warrior captain and adorned with a heron feather. On the day of the sacrifice, he would be restrained by four priests holding his arms and legs, while a fifth cut out his heart and threw it in his face.
Sir James George Frazer was a Scottish anthropologist who studied the evolution of magic into religion and finally, the shift into science. In his seminal work The Golden Bough , he detailed a terrifying dark mass that was said during the most desperate times in the Gascon region of France. Only the pope himself could undo the damage done by saying the Mass of Saint-Secaire and pardon anyone who dared perform it.
The mass was said in a ruined or abandoned church, and as the clock struck PM, he would begin saying the regular mass backward and end it at the stroke of midnight. The communion host for the mass was black, and instead of wine, the priest and his attendants drank water from a well that was the horrible final resting place of an unbaptized baby. When the priest made the sign of the cross, he drew it not on himself but on the ground using his left foot. The mass was said with a particular target in mind, and once it was done, that person would grow sicker and sicker, wasting away and finally dying.
According to Maori belief, a ceremonial ritual needs to be performed to make a new house safe for its inhabitants. Add to Watch list. This listing has ended.

Awakened now and unmerciful. You shall have all nations in derision. Becoming the catalyst of indignation. March towards wicked transformations. Slither from mine pallet that I might maintain your living ash. Consume them with your fire. With poisoned arrows. Consume them that they may not be. Enveloping them with delicious suffering.
And deliver much agony. The mass crucifixion of the sons of Adam. Dispatched by ignious ophidian. Constained abyssal order. Announcing the true fruits of the fall.
Become the catalyst of indignation. And with terrible and tyrannical death. Oh, restore us again. Dawn Vibration His beacon severes vision. Again alight from under. Crossing out their eyes. All vision ignored. Erasing the murmurs.
It too eventually fell to the spread of the sulfurous haze as well as to Palawa Joko when he first attempted to conquer Elona. After this, the sulfurous sands became too deadly for mortals to cross into the land. In AE , Abaddon's Margonite forces mustered in the Desolation and the landscape was transformed by countless tendrils that mimicked the hair of Abaddon's mask.
After being freed, Palawa Joko assisted the Order of the Sunspears in crossing the Desolation in return for their help in reclaiming his throne and a number of his forces. With Abaddon's death that year, the sulfurous sands began to recede slowly, making the Desolation more hospitable over time.CD $ Sad / Sapthuran: Black Winter Of Desolation CD Regimental Records REG CD $ Sanctus: Aeon Sky CD Metal Blade Records CD $ Sorts: Made In Nightonia CD Regimental Records REG CD $ The Bronx: S/T ST Self Titled Same CD White Drugs / Ferret WHD Digipak: CD.
