Same text, in full Latin:

Nos praepotens Lucifer, juvante Satan, Belzebub, Leviathan, Elimi,
atque Astaroth, allisque, hodie habemus acceptum pactum
foederis Urbani Grandieri qui nobis est. Et huic pollicemur
amorem mulierum, florem virginum, decus monacharum, honores, voluptates et opes.
Fornicabitur triduo; ebrietas illi cara erit. Nobis offerit semel
in anno sanguinis sigillum, sub pedibus conculcabit sacra ecclesiae et
nobis rogationes ipsius erunt; quo pacto vivet annos viginti felix
in terra hominum, et veniet postea inter nos maleficere Deo.
Factum in infernis, inter consilia daemonum.
Lucifer Belzebub Satanas
Astaroth Leviathan Elimi
Sigilla posuere magister diabolus et daemones principes domini.
Baalberith, scriptor.


Translation into English:

We, the influential Lucifer, the young Satan, Beelzebub, Leviathan, Elimi,
and Astaroth, together with others, have today accepted the covenant pact
of Urbain Grandier, who is ours. And him do we promise
the love of women, the flower of virgins, the respect of monarchs, honors, lusts and powers.
He will go whoring three days long; the carousal will be dear to him. He offers us once
in the year a seal of blood, under the feet he will trample the holy things of the church and
he will ask us many questions; with this pact he will live twenty years happy
on the earth of men, and will later join us to sin against God.
Bound in hell, in the council of demons.
Lucifer Beelzebub Satan
Astaroth Leviathan Elimi
The seals placed the Devil, the master, and the demons, princes of the lord.
Baalberith, writer.




other than this, here are some people who "allegedly" made a pact with the diablo...

Paganini
Urban Grandier
Jonathan Moulton
Robert Johnson (a jazz player)

well, the question is, would you sell your soul if this is actually true? for what purpose?

well, for me, i will... maybe because It's better to rule in hell, than to serve in heaven..

LoL.. well, ill kill the devil with the power/s he/she will endow me, and become the new overlord.. haha..

*P.S no wise-asses please if you are a wise-ass then im gonna F' you in the A'!*

if this is a dup mods, feel free to delete it...

Interesting post. I'd sell my soul for the purpose of saving someone close to me I guess or a sweet ass car. Ha, Robert Johnson, that funny bastard. "I sold my soul in order to play the blues" lol. What's this idea people have of ruling in hell and serving in heaven? I'd rather go to heaven and pray for a little bit but spend the rest fo the day eating decadent food, walking around naked, and scoring with hot chicks. Instead of going to hell and getting torchered and having pinnaples shoved up your ass for all eternity.

Theres got to be a catch somewhere, it's basicaly giving so much then letting you become a worker at hell so you go there but you're not even being tortured!

If hell actualy existed im pretty sure saten wouldn't offer such a sweet deal

Oh, love the graffiti-like signatures from involved parties.

But, if some demon wants to barter with me and my soul is the bartering material, that reveals to me that soul does exist and that it would probably be in my best interest to keep it.... so no, I don't need soul selling on my list of crimes as well.

Don't sell your soul, you'll regret it. They're cheaters, so they're only cheating you.

It depends what the red guy can offer me, unlimited ponies? I'd like to time travel and kill people with my mind...

No, I'd never do that.
The Devil is a liar.
He'll say one thing and do another.
I wouldn't do it to save anyone either, not because I'm selfish just because I know there's nothing you can do to save them.
And besides I'd rather serve God.
It's easier than having a mind of my own.
