Welcome to the official webpage of the Crocco Cabal
of the Erisian Church.  This website is dedicated to Carmine Crocco, 
who died a martyr to Discordia on June 18, 1905.

My name is Antonivs of Syracuse.  I am a Pope of the Erisian Church 
and disorganizer of the Crocco Cabal.  
If you don't believe me, check out the gospel I am compiling for the 
New and Improved Testament (the true story of Jesus) or my Epistle to 
the Discordians (a distillation of wisdom as compiled by a domesticated 

I have been asked if Discordianism is a real religion or a joke.  
Malaclypse the Younger said it best when he wrote:
"We are not engaged in a complicated joke disguised as a religion.  
We are engaged in a religion disguised as a complicated joke."

For those of you who are dubious, "If Eris doesn't exist, who put all 
the Chaos in this universe, you damned atheist?" huh? huh?  
No answer, smartguy?

Life is short, so let there be slack!

Discordian Dogmas:
"A Discordian must believe that Eris Discordia rules the Material 
Universe - and that She won it from God in a divorce suit during 
the Beforelife, and that the French anarchist Pierre Joseph Proudhon 
was her attorney at the trial, and that nobody is Her Prophet, and 
that eating hotdog buns is a sin.  All else is a matter of individual 
conscience." page xxii, Principia Discordia by Malaclypse the Younger

The Five Commandments (The Pentabarf):

"Know Ye This O Man of Faith!
I - There is no Goddess but Goddess and She is Your Goddess.  There 
is no Erisian Movement but The Erisian Movement and it is the Erisian 
Movement.  And every Golden Apple Corps is the beloved home of a Golden 

II - A Discordian Shall Always use the Official Discordian Document 
Numbering System.

III - A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off 
Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony 
to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic 
Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic 
Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of 
Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).

IV - A Discordian shall Partake of No Hot Dog Buns, for Such was the 
Solace of Our Goddess when She was Confronted with The Original Snub.

V - A Discordian is Prohibited of Believing What he reads.

The picture below is of the sacred wood of Mt. Vulture, which is today 
in the Italian region of Basilicata.  It is very holy according to 
that dead Roman dude, Quintus Horatius Flaccus:

I was a small child and on Mount Vulture in Apulia,
tired of playing and sleepy, 
heedless I lay down and miraculous doves
covered me with leaves:
A prodigious feat, 
thought all those who live on the high Acerenzia,
in the forests of Bantini, 
and in the fertile fields of the lower Forento,
that I could sleep soundly, 
secure from vipers' nests and bears, 
simply covered
by a mount of sacred laurel leaves and myrtle, 
a courageous child protected by the Gods.

("Odes", Book III, n. 4, "Come down from the skies and sing a beautiful song")

Basilicata, ancient Lucania, is the land of the malocchio ("evil 
eye"), of briganti ("brigands"), streghe ("witches"), the lupo-mannaro 
("werewolf"), the red hooded munacidd (" mischevious spirits of 
unbaptized children"), where Prince Colonna slew a dragon at 
Stigliano, where the locals call themselves pagani ("pagans") and all 
outsiders are regarded as cristiani ("Christians"), where Demeter is 
still worshipped in the guise of la Madonna.
