Baalberith (Balberith) is a major Demon, one of the spirits possessing Sister Madeleine in the Aix-en-Provence Possessions. Baalberith was once a prince in the angelic order of Cherubim. According to Johann Weyer, Baalberith is the secretary and librarian of the archives in Hell and is a Demon of the second order, a master of the Infernal Alliance. He also is a grand pontiff and master of ceremonies. He countersigns or notarizes Pacts with the Devil. He tempts men to blasphemy and murder.

In the Aix-en-Provence case, Baalberith volunteered the names of all the Demons possessing Sister Madeleine, as well as the names of the saints who could counter them.

Variations of Baalberith’s name are Ba’al, Baal Davar, Baal-Peor, Baalam, Baalphegor, Baalsebul, Baalzephon, Bael, Baell, BALAM, Balan, Balberith, Beal, Belberith, Beleth, Belfagor, Belial, Beliar, BELPHEGOR, BERITH, Bileth, Bilet, Byleth, and Elberith. As Berith, he is described as wearing a crown and riding a horse.

A magical ritual for gaining Baalberith’s favor for 20 years is as follows: Take a black chicken to a Crossroads at night and sacrifice it by cutting its throat. Say, “Berith, do my work for 20 years.” Bury the chicken deeply enough so that animals will not dig it up.

Master of the Covenant; Master of the Promise

Also known as: Berith; Elberith

Classification: Demon

Medieval Demonologists reinterpreted Ba’al Berith as a fallen angel, a former Prince of Cherubim but now “Pontiff of Hell.” He serves as chief archivist and the devil’s own private secretary. The covenant or promise that concerned medieval Christians was the one that left a human soul in thrall to Satan. If one believes in signed contracts between mortals and the devil, then Baalberith is the spirit who serves as notary.
