Summary: Anchillicus was an emanation of the Demiurge Prince, Jehovah-Yahweh. He
was a high ranking demon (Doud), appointed as chief commander over hordes of lesser
demons, known as the Kezan. Anchillicus and many other demons were obliterated by
Jehovah-Yahweh during a fit of rage and fire (2:1:52-58).
Now in the stillness of the storm did there arise a great many murmurings and contentions.
And Jehovah-Yahweh called unto the chief Doud whose name was Anchillicus, and he
asked him, saying:
“For what cause are these my minions made to murmur and contend against each the
other?” And Anchillicus, bowing low before the Demiurge did answer, saying: “They
murmur because of the man in yonder light. For they are made to wonder because of
him, seeing that he is made to seem greater than all our wrath and power.”
When the Demiurge heard these words, he spoke with cool composure, saying: “Tell
me truly, Anchillicus, for throughout all the aeons of time have you proved most
faithful unto me: What think the Kezan of their Lord?”
And Anchillicus answered, saying: “Dread Lord, they see that you are made defeated
by the light; and now are they left to wonder concerning which is greater still:
the darkness or the light.”
So spoke the chief Doud unto Jehovah-Yahweh, and the Demiurge rose up greatly into
the airs above, filling the whole sky with blackness and deep rumblings; and there
poured out from the Darkness a hot and scorching flame which fell upon all the many
Kezan round about.
And the many Kezan did leap and run about as if to flee, but the flames of the Demiurge
did seek out even every one of them, and there was none to escape the awful wrath;
And there was great weeping and gnashing of teeth, evensomuch that many did tear
the burning flesh from off their bodies; yet was there found no relief, and there
fell round about the light, even all the Kezan which aforetime had served the Demiurge
most faithfully, and Anchillicus also; being all consumed in fire and torment.
2nd Endowment 1:52-58
But not this only, for Jehovah-Yahweh created from his own likeness a great many
demons; placing over them the chief Doudwhose name was Anchillicus; these then were
made the legions of death and hell, keeping a frightful watch over such men and women
as would serve Jehovah-Yahweh in fear and trembling.
For over each man and woman who would choose to follow Jehovah-Yahweh, even over
these would Anchillicus place a demon to watch over all their doings; whispering
into their ears a great many fears filled with shame and guilt; ever constant to
bind down the minds of men, to fill them up with loathing.
