Does anyone have any evidence either way?
There's a book that's probably still on the Guttenberg Project website:
DEVIL-WORSHIP IN FRANCE
THE QUESTION OF LUCIFER
A RECORD OF THINGS SEEN AND HEARD IN THE
SECRET SOCIETIES ACCORDING TO THE
EVIDENCE OF INITIATES
ARTHUR EDWARD WAITE
“The first in this plot was Lucifer.”—Thomas Vaughan
I can't vouch for any accuracy therein - it's in my ever-growing "Need to read this" stack.
There's also evidence that it didn't take much to be "Satanic" in earlier times. The Cathari, for example, who seem to have practiced a form of Gnosticism. The Brethren of the Free Spirit (who were soft of proto-Protestants, hence the Heresy of the Free Spirit).
Anyway, maye that will be of some help. I susepct, however, that it's just a elaboration/expose on the guys Goibniu mentions.
