Baphomet is a made up deity used, by the Inquisition, to falsely accuse the Knights Templar of heresy. The name Baphomet first appears in trial transcripts for the Inquisition of the Knights Templar starting in 1307. Some think it may be a mispronunciation of the name Mohammed, the result of a middle ages version of the telephone game.
Baphomet first came into popular English usage in the 19th century during the debate and speculation on the reasons for the suppression of the Templars. It was then subsequently incorporated into disparate occult and mystical traditions. Baphomet is often confused with Satan/Lucifer even though the name does not appear in any books of the Christian Holy Bible or any other Christian texts before the Inquisition of the Templars.
Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Eliphas Levi which contains binary elements representing the "sum total of the universe" (e.g. male and female, good and evil, on and off, etc.). Levi's intention was to symbolize his concept of "the equilibrium of the opposites", similar to the Chinese concept of Yin and Yang, resulting in a tradition that should create a perfect social order.
