"We are about to found a magazine of our own, Lucifer. Dont
allow yourself to be frightened: it is not the devil, into which the Catholics have
falsified the name of the Morning Star, sacred to all the ancient world, of the
bringer of light, Phosphoros, as the Romans often called the Mother of God and
Christ. And in St. Johns Revelation does it not say, I, Jesus, the
morning star? I wish people would take this to mind, at least. It is possible that
the rebellious angel was called Lucifer before his fall, but after his transformation
he must not be called so...."
"Open your columns to free and fearless discussion, and do as the theosophical periodicals have ever done, and as LUCIFER is now preparing to do. The 'bright Son of the morning' fears no light. He courts it, and is prepared to publish any inimical contributions (couched, of course, in decent language), however much at variance with his theosophical views. He is determined to give a fair hearing in any and every case, to both contending parties and allow things and thoughts to be judged on their respective merits. For why, or what should one dread when fact and truth are one's only aim?" H.P. Blavatsky in Lucifer, October, 1887.
