2019 marks the second annual Order of St. Cyprian of Antioch “Black Crozier” award – an award recognizing outstanding Cyprianic contributions to the broader occult community. Note, “Cyprianic” contributions need not be on/about St. Cyprian, but instead “in the manner of” – that is, material from disparate sources, ancient and modern, made new and available for present-day practitioners.

Out of many nominees, I am pleased and excited to announce that the three finalists for 2019 were:

Aidan WachterBJ Swain, and Jake Stratton-Kent

The recipient of the Black Crozier award was selected by vote of the Order membership from among the three finalists, and was announced on Sept. 26th:

BJ Swain – Black Crozier recipient, 2019

On behalf of myself, the Prior Provincials, professed members and the novitiate of the Order of St. Cyprian of Antioch, congratulations to all three of this years finalists, and thank you all for your contributions!
