The Order of Saint Cyprian of Antioch
is an uncloistered and dispersed Esoteric Christian religious Order

Inspired by the life and ministry of St. Cyprian of Antioch,
the members of the Order strive to re-envision his charism for the present day.

Our Charism


Pursuit of Hidden Wisdom, Benevolent Protection, Command of Spirits

The popularity of St. Cyprian of Antioch continues to grow, and there are many ways to approach and work with him through hoodoo, conjure, and spiritual paths such as Quimbanda, or the folk magic of the Iberian peninsula – this, however, is not our intended approach. Rather, the Order of Saint Cyprian of Antioch focuses specifically on an ecclesiastical understanding of and approach to this Bishop and Martyr, who is also Patron Saint of Magicians and Necromancers.

This is not to say that other approaches to working with the Saint are wrong – merely that this is not that. If that is what you are looking for, there are wonderful and qualified teachers to be found. Also, we do not wish to imply that we eschew any of the traditional folk magic approaches to working with our Patron – rather, our chosen primary focus is on the charism of the saint as understood through his role as a Bishop in the Church Universal.

What is a Charism?

Briefly put, a charism is an approach to spirituality as exemplified by the life of a particular saint. So what do we see when we look at the accounts of the life of Saint Cyprian of Antioch? What themes emerge from those who pray to him?

– The pursuit of knowledge, and the ability to understand “secret doctrines” with clarity

– The Power to Preserve from Evil Intents / protection from supernatural harm

– The Power to Intervene on behalf of those bound by hexes, bewitching, and possessed of evil,

– and the Power to Command Spirits / Necromancy

In attempting to discern a Cyprian Charism, then… we may distill it to “Pursuit of Hidden Wisdom, Benevolent Protection, and the Command of Spirits.”

As members of the Order of St. Cyprian,
prayer and the Three Pillars of Cyprianite Spirituality guide our lives:
Pursuit of Hidden Wisdom, Benevolent Protection, and the Command of Spirits.
