Set: A God of the Pentagon's Lt. Colonel Rick Branch Arlington, Texas

Though the Nile is many miles away, the Egyptian god Set (or Seth) apparently rules in at least one office of the Pentagon. (See related story: A Pagan in the Pentagon in this issue).

What follows is an historical analysis of the Egyptian god Set. Although Lt. Col. Aquino's Temple of Set may or may not be a complete restoration of this ancient religion, it would follow that if the modern religion derives its name and focus from ancient Egypt at least some of the characteristics would be brought into the 20th Century.

E.A. Willis Budge, late keeper of Egyptian Antiquities in the British Museum, explains in the introduction of his translation of The Egyptian Book of the Dead that Set was called "the evil one," (p. 49).

Budge further states, "About the XXIInd dynasty, however, it became the fashion to regard the god as the origin of all evil, and his statues and images were so effectually destroyed that only a few which escaped by accident have come down to us," (p. 116; ).

John B. Noss, who has written one of the finest works on comparative world religions, has this to say about Set:

"According to the Pyramid Texts, which are our earliest sources, Osiris, the good and beneficent king, was killed by his brother Set. (Was Seth the demon of desert heat?...) (Man's Religions, p. 38; parenthesis retained).

Cyril Aldred, formerly Associate Curator of the Department of Egyptian Art in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, drew an interesting parallel.

He observed, "they dutifully worshipped Re of Heliopolis, as well as Seth or Sutekh, the Egyptian equivalent of their Baal," (The Egyptians, p. 124; ).

Budge, in a second book, describes a sacrificial service involving the Egyptian god Set.

"The Kher-heb next made ready to perform the sacrifice which was intended to commemorate the slaughter, at some very early period, of the friends who were the friends of Set," (Egyptian Magic, p. 194).

Budge further explains, "Set's associates then changed themselves into the forms of animals,... but they were caught, and their heads were cut off; Set, however, who was concealed in the form of a pig, contrived to escape.

"The sacrifice consisted of a bull (or cow) or two, two gazelles or antelopes, and ducks. When the bull had been slain, one of the forelegs was cut off, and the heart taken out, and offered to the statue..." (Ibid, p. 195; ).

Lt. Col. Aquino's restored Temple of Set undoubtedly includes the worship of Set as an evil god. It also may very likely practice animal sacrifice and the removing of the victim's heart, an element which is central to nearly all 20th century occult groups.
