These hierarchies are listed here, compiled from many sources, so that the Demonolator can view the various hierarchies people have come up with over the years. Many of them are simply modifications from previous hierarchies. Please note that most of these hierarchies are from a Christian viewpoint.

(A. E. Waite?) Johan Weyer’s Hierarchy of Hell (1515-1588) Weyer, who studied under Cornelius Agrippa, is the very same 16th Century Demonologist John Weir (also spelt Wier at times) talked about in many freemasonry books. However, since the written record contains both Johan Weyer and John Weir and the hierarchy listings are slightly different, both have been included under separate entries. Please note: A recent discussion at the forum further suggests that this hierarchy is actually from A.E. Waite, who took liberties with Weyer’s work, and the mistake of this hierarchy was repeated from Waite’s work and placed in subsequent books as historical fact and attributed to Weyer. This particular hierarchy listing (in MD and here) was extracted from such books. I am told this hierarchy does not appear in Weyer’s Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and that Weyer’s hierarchy is simply a revamp of the Goetia (as many are). See John Weir’s hierarchy below for the hierarchy (and I believe that’s a partial) that does come from Weyer’s work.:

 

Beelzebuth – Supreme Chieftan

Satan – Occupies second place as prince of darkness.

Eurynomous – Prince of death

Moloch – Prince of the land of tears

Pluto – Prince of fire

Baal – Commander of the armies of hell

Lucifer – Dispenses justice

Asmodeus – Gambling

Baalberith – Minister of pacts and treaties

Proserpine – Prince of demonic spirits

Astaroth – Prince and treasurer of hell

Nergal – Chief of secret police

Chamos, Melchom, Behamoth, Dagon, Adramalek

(Johan Weyer) John Weir’s Hierarchy (partial): John Weir(Wier) is the same 16th Century Demonologist as Johan Weyer, student of Agrippa. However, since the written record contains both Johan Weyer and John Weir, and the hierarchy listings are somewhat different, both have been included under separate entries. See Weyer above for more information about the possible misinformation of the above Weyer hierarchy.
