What is Corpus De Baal?

Some satanic thing. What what does it involve doing though?

It’s pseudo-Latin meaning ‘Body/Collection of books/Index/ of Baal’, Baal being the _Modern English_ spelling of Baʿal, the name used for various gods who were patrons of cities in the Middle East about 3000 years ago.

A quick Google tells me the phrase “Corpus De Baal” figures heavily in conspiracy theories and urban myths about the swine flu. I seriously doubt if real Satanist use this phrase.

As Erik says, it’s cod Latin.

Googling finds quite a few sites saying it’s a Satanic festival, but frankly it looks like a recently made-up name invented to match a calendar slot to suit some flavour of conspiracy theory.

Unlike the traditional events listed alongside it – for instance, Beltane and Walpurgisnacht – a look in Google Books (see http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22Corpus+De+Baal… ) finds no citation whatever for a festival called “Corpus De Baal”.
