Thaumaturgical Prodigies in the New-English Canaan

By Rev. Ward Phillips. Ambrose Dewart found a copy of Thaumaturgical Prodigies in the New-English Canaan in Billington House, dated Boston 1801. Dewart took it to be a reprint on an earlier work. It was a thick volume, printed in an imitation of black letter, with the long s and other obsolete typographical traits. [AWD Lurker 17]

About two thirds of the way through the book is a passage discussing a beast-man that resembled the late Richard Billington; the creature was found in the woods near Candlemas of 1787 and executed the following June [17-18]. Alijah Billington wrote a letter to one of the Arkham papers, protesting the book [19, 26, 68]. Later, the author, Ward Phillips, attempted to gather copies of the book and burn them [117].

Dan Harrop found a copy in the collection of his late cousin, Abel Harrop; Dan Harrop remembered vaguely having heard of the book before [AWD Whippoorwills 43].

Tsathoggua

An amorphous and toad-like god-creature [HPL Whisperer 254].

He is said to be great in girth, very squat and pot-bellied. He has a huge, toad-shaped head. His sleepy lids are half-lowered over his globular eyes, from which trickle a phosphor-like glow. The tip of a queer tongue protrudes from his fat mouth. His whole body is covered with short, dark, fine fur, giving the impression of a bat or sloth. [CAS Seven 50, 54-55; Tale 10]

However, Tsathoggua can apparently change his form, for he is known as "plastic" [HPL Gates 443] and "amorphous" [HPL Aeons 272].

Tsathoggua is sluggish by nature. Even when ravenously hungry, he will not arise from his place, but waits in divine slothfulness for the sacrifice [CAS Seven 44, 50]. He seems to drink the blood of his victims rather than eating their flesh; for Ezdagor sent someone to Tsathoggua as a "blood-offering" [50, 55], and the previous victim appeared to be a "lean husk" [54], which is suggestive of something that was drained, rather than eaten whole.

Origin and Oldest Cults

Tsathoggua came down from Saturn soon after the Earth's creation [CAS Seven 44].

It appears that Tsathoggua is one of the entites worshipped by the Outer Ones. Thus, Tsathoggua was mentioned in a litany recited in a Vermont cave on May-Eve by an Outer One and a human [HPL Whisperer 226].

A few daring mystics have suggested that the devotees of Tsathoggua were as alien to mankind as Tshathoggua itself [HPL Mountains 29]. On viewing the Antarctic city of the Old Ones, Prof. Dyer was reminded of the Hyperborean legends of Tsathoggua and the "worse than formless" star-spawn associated with that semi-entity [Mountains 45]. Yog-Sothoth told Randolph Carter that entities from the double planet Kythanil flew to earth and worshipped Tsathoggua [HPL Gates 443]. These are probably the same as the "star-spawn" mentioned by Dyer.

Albert Wilmarth said that Tsathoggua's home was black, lightless N'kai [FL Terror2 301]. The Outer One masquerading as Henry Akeley said that Tsathoggua came from black, lightless N'kai: the deepest level of a system of caverns beneath Oklahoma [HPL Whisperer 254] This probably just means that N'kai was Tsathoggua's oldest habitation on this planet.

The worshippers of Tsathoggua in N'kai were peculiar-sensed beings which had no light at all, but which had great civilisations. In form, they seem to have been amorphous lumps of viscous black slime that took temporary shapes for various purposes. [HPL Mound 140-141] Most likely these slime-beings are also the same as the formless star-spawn from Kythanil.

The cult of Tsathoggua later become popular among the Old Ones of K'n-yan, and almost rivalled the ancient cults of Yig and Tulu. The city of Tsath was named after Tsathoggua. However, the people of K'n-yan abandoned the worship of Tsathoggua after an expedition to N'kai found some of the black slime creatures. One of Tsathoggua's temples was later turned into a shrine of Shub-Niggurath [144]. During Zamacona's visit, Gll'-Hthaa-Ynn detoured to avoid an ancient, deserted temple of Tsathoggua. [HPL Mound 140-141]

One branch of the Old Ones of K'n-yan carried the cult to the outer world, where one of the images found its way to a shrine in Olathoe, in the Arctic land of Lomar [HPL Mound 141].

God of the Hyperboreans

One of the mysteries of Tsathoggua is that he is associated equally with N'kai and with the ancient arctic realm of Hyperborea (now Greenland). Perhaps he changed location, or perhaps he manifests in both places.

200,000 years ago, lost Hyperborea knew the nameless worship of black amorphous Tsathoggua [HPL Aeons 272]. Originally, this worship was probably rendered by the beings from Kythanil, since Yog-Sothoth told Carter that those beings worshipped Tsathoggua in primal Hyperborea [HPL Gates 443].

Later, the worship in Hyperborea was apparently taken up by the primate forbears of humanity; for, among the minds held captive by the Great Race were three from the furry "pre-human" Hyperborean worshippers of Tsathoggua [HPL Time 395].

During the human era, the people of Hyperborea also worshipped Tsathoggua, who was fabled to reside below Mt. Voormithadreth. During worship at his black altars, the devotees always faced in the direction of Voormithadreth. At that time, the sorceror Ezdagor sent Ralibar Vooz to Tsathoggua as a sacrifice. Tsathoggua decided not to feast on Ralibar Vooz, but instead sent him onward as an offering to Atlach-Nacha. [CAS Seven 44, 55].

Later in Hyperborean history, the thief Satampra Zeiros visited a shrine of Tsathoggua in the suburbs of ruined Commoriom, the former capital of Hyperborea [CAS Tale 3]. By the time of Satampra Zeiros, the people of Hyperborea had ceased to worship Tsathoggua; but it was rumored that jungle beasts visited his abandoned temples and uttered inarticulate prayers to him [10].

The temple visited by Zeiros had a basin filled with a foetid black slime. This slime turned out to be a living being that could change shape at will, and which pursued Zeiros and his associate. [CAS Tale 11-17] This being was probably one of the slime-creatures from Kythanil.

Cult Survivals

Tsathoggua is mentioned in the Pnakotic Manuscripts, the Necronomicon, and the Commoriom myth-cycle preserved by the Atlantean high-priest Klarkash-Ton [HPL Whisperer 254].

In medieval France, Brother Ambrose witnessed a manifestation of Sodagui (Tsathoggua) that was raised by Azedarac, Archbishop of Averoigne [CAS Holiness 119].

Prof. John Kirowan admitted the former existence of the Tsathoggua cult, but doubted that it survives today [REH Children 152].

According to the Rajah of Jadhore, Ganesha was worshipped as Tsathoggua long ago [RB Elephant 44]. However, the differing appearance of the two deities (elephant-headed versus toadlike) makes this identification doubtful.

Megalithic ruins in Uganda were said to have been an outpost of Tsadogwa. [HPL Winged 247]

Tsathoggua as an Earth God

David, nephew of Asa Sandwin, recalled reading of Tsathoggua and Yog-Sothoth as leaders of the elemental earth powers [AWD Sandwin 105]. According to Horvath Blayne, Tsathoggua was a god of earth, and one of the Ancient Ones who rebelled against the Elder Gods [AWD Island 180].

Tsathoggua's association with underground sites (N'kai and under Voormithadreth) may have inspired this interpretation of Tsathoggua as an earth elemental. However, there is a more plausible explanation for Tsathoggua's dark dwelling places; as a being who previously lived on distant Saturn, Tsathoggua may simply be averse to light.

According to books such as the Sussex Manuscript, Celaeno Fragments, and Cultes des Ghoules, Tsathoggua is waiting in N'kai [AWD Gorge 126]. Passages from the Necronimicon mention Tsathoggua [AWD Keeper 151]; according to some such passages, Tsathoggua shall come again from the black-litten caverns of N'kai within the earth [AWD Curwen 21; Lurker 84, 133].

The Indian wise man Misquamacus said that Ossadagowah was a child of Sadogowah (Tsathoggua) [AWD Lurker 15, 139].

Modern Scholars and Encounters

After wreaking vengeance on a rival, Daniel Morris wrote "Praise the Lord Tsathoggua!" [HPL Man 211]. Morris may have learned of Tsathoggua from the Book of Eibon [207, 208].

Rogers' Museum had a figure of black, formless Tsathoggua [HPL Museum 216]. Stephen Jones imagined the figure of Tsathoggua elongating itself from a toad-like gargoyle to a long, sinuous line with hundreds of rudimentary feet [HPL Museum 230].

A letter from Henry Akeley mentioned Tsathoggua [HPL Whisperer 223].

Tony Alwyn read of Tsathoggua in the forbidden texts at Miskatonic University library [AWD Beyond2 165].

A dictaphone recording made at Rick's Lake, Wisconsin, recorded a voice neither human nor bestial, which uttered praise to many elder beings, including Tsathoggua [AWD Dweller 137].

The late Amos Tuttle's papers included references to Tsathoggua [AWD Hastur 12].

While pondering an invocation to the Warder of Knowledge in the Eltdown Shards, Gordon Whitney recalled references from other works to the unspeakable practices of the Tsathoggua cult [RFS Warder 159].

The late Elmer Harrod called the name of Tsathoggua as part of an invocation on a cassette tape [JVS Dead 34].

A tiny man told Dr. Wycherly that the Book reveals whence obscure and loathsome Tsathoqquah came, and why [HH Guardian 299].

Joseph Curwen had a copy in his collection [HPL Case 121]. Given his interest in reanimating the dead, Curwen might have been intrigued by lines such as "assuredly, if I understand this regimen, bodies become not bodies, and incorporeal things become bodies..." Although in context, the "bodies" apparently are elements such as copper and mercury, rather than corpses.
