Agrippa (1486—1535) was in many ways an all round Renaissance man.

II. or Of Magical Ceremonies: The Fourth Book — Henry Cornelius Agrippa after Agrippa's death. The actual practice of geomancy is set out in a rather compressed form. Johannes Weir. 1977. For example the table on page 6 is not very clear. who was for a while Agrippa's disciple and amanuensis.Vlll written a superstitious geomancy quite different from the rest but no less and fallacious or if you wish I will even say if 'mendacious'" Agrippa was nothing not frank about his own work! Geomancy was from the 12th to the 17th Century one of the major forms of divination in Europe. This text on geomancy is extremely interesting in that it provides much of the material for later derivative works on the subject. declared in one of his voluminous works that this treatise was not after the style of his master. This treatise which appeared in Latin about 30 years is effectively a self contained grimoire or grammar of sorcery which draws upon the Three Books of Occult Philosophy for its theoretical background.

The first part of this book is divination. So as to preserve the facsimile quality of the text these have not been altered. it expands greatly Agrippa 's remarks on the subject in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy. the logical context. Interestingly. After an initial excursion into an astrological system . together with complete instructions for geomantic practice appear in the present writer's The Oracle of Geomancy. and a history of the subject in Divinatory Geomancy. Warner Destiny.

There is special emphasis on the benedictions to consecration of water. together with works on geomancy and magic often attributed to him. the preparation and condition of the Magus. The form of these pentacles is similar to some given in The Key of Solomon where the picture is drawn representing a Biblical or Apocalyptic theme and then surrounded with the appropriate verse details of consecration of the various instruments necessary for the art of magic. Many. philosophy and astronomy are extent. which is to be the sanctum sanctorum for the practice of magic and the use of the Liber Spirituum. oils and perfumes. Further Agrippa explains dream oracles and the tablets and talismans requisite for this art. III. and dealing with Nature spirits as well as the spirits of the grimoires. However it is easier to consider the Heptameron or Magical Elements and the Geomantia as by him: as he had quite a well paid practice as a physician tial . suf be used. The work then touches upon the consecration of the circle. Magical Elements — Peter de Abano Peter of Abano (1250—131 7) was one of the most influen- men of learning of his time. This book must be inscribed with the image and sigil of the spirit together with the oath which it must take when it is conjured. so covering the various forms of invocation not requiring a circle. according to their rank and dignity. He outlines the type of place in which the ceremony must take place. Agrippa goes on to discuss the magnitudes of the stars and their symbols. Agrippa then explains how to make pentacles and what signs are to be used in their preparation. or Book of Spirits. unctions. Agrippa reaches the details of the actual invocation of spirits. the latter possibly spurious. prayers and types of conjurations. The familiar shapes of the spirits of the various planets are delineated to identify a particular spirit with its planetary ruler. Heptameron: or.IX for generating the names of good and evil spirits.

A set of characters for both good and evil spirits follows.

Amongst the less salubrious works from his pen was a work on poisons. the Heptameron is the best known. The Heptameron has well earned its reputation as a key work on practical magic and it follows in the tradition of Trithemius' Steganographia in as much as it catalogues the names of many angels and the times of their conjuration. In many ways Abano's instructions for invocation are . may have first appeared in Latin at Venice in 1496 before being bound with Agrippa in 1565. the Elucidarium Necromanticum and Liber Experimentorum Mirabilium de Annulis Secundum 28 Mansiones Lunae.

Pictorius' armory against spirits is very traditional and includes. and tentatores and insidiatores (who accompany each man as his evil genius). and goes into detail about the different demons. is examined in detail. distinguishing between northern and southern sublunar demons. ranging from spirits of the air up to what Homer called gods. Various acts of the devil and his ministers on earth together with accounts of apparitions and the occurrence of spirits naturally are then invoked with long anecdotes from Pliny. The doctrine that spirits are guardians of the treasures of the earth. attempts to prove that the word daemon "is not an horrible or odius name. Pictorius dwells at some length upon the different types of divination. This book forms a bridge between the magical theory of Iamblicus of Chalcis and the grimoires such as Peter de Abano's Heptameron. In days before banks the burial of treasure was quite a common occurrence and its discovery by accident or magic almost as common. to between these types of spirit. and the form and nature of their bodies. criminatores and exploratores. In many ways this book is an excellent summary of all of the diverse influences both Christian and pagan which came together during the late middle ages and early renaissance to form the magical tradition of the west. It in fact is almost a bibliography of source books on magic and stories about demons. Using the form of dialogue Pictorius is able to set forth the objections of the church and counter each one distinguish the difference by referring to various authorities including scripture. and of interest to practical magicians now.

This is probably a misprint for 196 and 42 respectively.

This is not to say that there is not a great deal of value in a Jungian or Reichian approach to magic. which has allowed modern apologists for magic to hint that the changes are all internal and psychological. It is the loss of the latter half (macro cosmic part) of the definition. just that it leaves a proportion of magic unaccounted for. but how can a subject develop which narrows its focus so far as to throw out the bulk of its theory (for the belief in external entities was a central belief) without actually improving on its techniques? It is for this reason that this book and others in the same series are being republished. just as oppressive in its own way as religious bias.XVI phenomena has begun to grow up within magic itself. the latter stages can be explained by invoking religious and mystical precedents. In some ways this modern growth is an extension of the religiously orientated defence of magic. except that it is in fact a scientifically orientated defence. a phenomena roughly equivalent to Turner's seventeenth century attempts to make magic acceptable in the eyes of his religiously minded contemporaries. One might say that magic has developed over the last couple of centuries. aimed at improving the interior man andenabling him to transcend his limitations of personality and achieve enlightenment. March 1978 . This definition also includes the 'magical technologies' such as the various forms of divination which are necessary adjuncts to the above. through spiritual agencies which have been evoked or invoked from either the microcosm (man's own normally subconscious wellsprings of power) or the macrocosm (the universe). as there has always been a compulsion by apologists to bend their argument into a contemporary mould. Magic is basically the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with Will. to bring forward some of the best thought in the field. before it is smothered by a mass of 'scientific' rationalisation. The early stages of this phenomena can easily be explained away in terms of Jungian psychology — the pursuit of integration.

fuch as are the Sprinkling with Holy-Water. we ought to commemorate how that God hath placed the firmament in the midfl of the waters. Likewife we are to call to remembrance in what manner God made the water to be the inftrument of executing his judice in the deftrudlion of the Gyants in the general deluge over all the earth. and through the midft of the river of Jordan . This therefore is to be known.. thac in the end of every Confecration.and Fumigations. after that the prayer is rightly performed. how God led his own peoplethorow the midft of the Sea on dry ground . That if any Confecration be to be made of things profane. with the commemoration of his vertue and authority . which watered the whole earth. and with an earneft and intentive minde. Unftions with holy Oyl. are more apt 10 receive the influences of the Divine vermes. and likewife how marveloufly he drew forth water out of the ftony rock in the wildernefs . and odoriferous SufFumigations appertaining to holy Worfhip.

And therefore in every Confecration there is chiefly ufed the Benediction and Confecration of Water. with divine vertue and power of the prefenc Confecration .ufed everywhere with holy Waxlighcs or Lamps burning: for without Lights no Sacrament is rightly performed. So then. from whence fprang four holy rivers . and in what maner that God placed the fountain of waters in the earthly Paradife.

Which book being fo written. maner that to fay book mud be infcribed after this Let there be placed on the lefc fide the image of the fpirit. which is properly called. we are then to proceed to the confecration thereof after a twofold way one whereof is.ceremoniouny to be compofed. Moreover . There is extant amongft thofe Magicians (whodomoft ufe the miniflery of evil fpirits) a certain Rite of invocaring by a Book to be confecrated before to chat purpofe . which many do call Now : Virgin-paper.

let the book be taken and fhut. And inthefrrft place. And this way is thus : Let there be made a book of fpirits as we have before before fet forth . let there be read in the prefenceof the fpirits all the Oathes which are written in that book . taught . let all the fpirits be compelled toimpofe their hands where their images and characters are drawn . let all the fpirits be called which are written in the book. This book being perfected after this mancr . but in the end thereof lee there be written Invocations and Bonds. Then this book muft be bound between two Tables or Lamens . There is another maner of confecrating a book of fpirits. and then the book to be confecrated being placed without let it we have before the Circle in a triangle there drawn . and there in the firft place the book being opened. and ftrong Conjurations. and buried in the middle of the Cir- . and the book that is to be be placed without the Circle in a triangle. which is more eafie. Which being done. Then let the book be wrapped up in clean linen .in their own order and place . and preferved as we have before fpoken . to afluxc their obedience. Of Occult Philofophy. by conjuring them thrice by the bonds defcribed in the book. to a Circle prepared in acrofs way . and in the infide thereof let there be drawn the holy Pentacles of the Divine Majeftie. according to the Art which we have before delivered . except that in opening this book the fpirits do not always come vifible. which we have before fee forth and defcribed out of the Afocalypfe: then let the firft of them be placed in the beginning of the book . let it be brought in a clear and fair time. and confirm the fame. to the book fo to be confecrated. and of much efficacie to produce every effect . wherewith every fpirit may be bound. and the fecond at the end of the fame. and let the fpirits be licenfed to depart. that they come unto that place within the fpace of three days . according to due rite and order. let it be confecrated to the rites and ways which we have before declared concerning Confecration.58 which confecrated. Which being done. and to confirm and confecrate the fame w'th a fpecial and common Oath.

and let a precious perfume be made. and new make the Circle . as on of oracle of thofe things which are defired. which do direct to fpirits. and by the name of their character and image. and open the hole. Itbehoveth therefore that the invocant himfelf be religiI 2 oufly . to fpeak or appear in fight. Then youfhall licenfe the fpirits in their order. or do inform us in dreams by fpirits. and take out the book . let him do it in a fair and clear feafon. return .placing the fame between two holy Lamens or Pentacles . Circle. then you fhall licenfe the fpirits to depart.The fourth book. when the fpirits are leaft troubled . not opening the fame. one it behoveth them efpecially to obferve two things : whereof is about the difpofition of theinvocantj the other about thofe things which are outwardly to be adhibited to the invocation. conjure them by the bonds placed in the end of the book. And this is the lafl rite and maner of confecrating. and let him place himfelf towards the region of the fpirits. And now we (nail come to (peak concerning the invocatiwell of the good fpirits as of the bad. and do offer themfelves to our fight. for the conformity of the fpirits to be called. Whofoever therefore would call any good fpirit . depart before chc fun rife. Then let him open the book under a due Regifter . about the middle of the night . and deftroying the Circle. and with bended knees make prayer and giving thanks unto God. But the Operator. and fo let it be kept. depart before the rifmg of the fun : and on the third day. And having attained your defired effect. to that purpofe which you defire : and. The good fpirits may be invocated of us . 59 and there faft flopped up : and then the Circle being deftroyed. let him invoke the fpirits by their Oath there defcribed and confirmed . after the fpirits are licenfed. divers ways.when he would work by the book thus confecrated. profitable to whatfoever writings and experiments. if there be need . For they do openly ipeak to thofe that watch . and in fundry manners do offer themfelves unto us. as oefore is (hewn.

he ought to be confeffed and conrrire. from all perturbation of minde. and let them be both kept confecrated. This place muft firft be exorcifed and confecrated : and let there be a table or altar placed therein. the invocant oughc to conferve himfelf all thefe days. which is fourty days. and make a perfume every day that you fhall pray. and pure anointing oyl . and from all maner of forraign and fecular bufinefs. pure.

From hence it is , that the Souls of the deadare not to be called up without blood, or by the application of fomepart of their relief Body.

Furthermore, that place is better then there , where fome dead carkafs , that came by a violent death, is not yet expiated, nor ritely buried , and was lately buried ; for the expiation of thofe places , is alfo a holy Rite duly to be adhibited to the burial of the bodies , and oftentimes prohibiteth the fouls to come unto their bodies , and expelieth chem far off unto the places of judgement.

from hence it is, That the Souls of the dead are not eafily 10 beraifcdup, except it be theSouls of them whom we know to be evil , or to have pcrifhed by a violent death, and whofc bodies do wane a right and due burial.

no hurt unlefs it be by permiffion ; or,as Damafcenm faithjZTy difpenfation.hnd ChryfoFtome faith,7Z?<y have a limited power ; for trucly without the will of God , they cannot The Devil could not have detouch a hair of any mans head. ceived the Prophets of Ahab^ if he had not received power from God ; neither could he have brought any detriment uponjo^either unto his body or his goods^but by the power God had given him.
