Editor’s introduction.
This short grimoire was first published in the late 16th century, bound up with De Occulta Philosophia, seu de cæremoniis Magicis – the spurious “Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy” attributed to Agrippa – and was reprinted with it as part of a collection of supplementary material to Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy in an undated (ca. 1600) edition of Agrippa’s Opera. Both texts, along with four other works on divination and magick (two tracts on Geomancy, the first and only known book of De magia ueterum by ‘Arbatel’ (a.k.a. “Arbatel of Magick”) and a discourse (framed as a dialogue) variously known as Isagogue or De materia dæmonum, “concerning those daimons which abide in the sublunary region”) were published in an English translation by Robert Turner in 1655.* The Fourth Book and Heptameron were later plagiarised by Francis Barrett, and form parts two and three of Book Two of The Magus. The authorship of the Heptameron is ascribed to one Peter of Abano (Pietro d’Apono) who lived 1253-1316, wrote on medical matters, and towards the end of his life got into trouble with the Inquisition.† Some of his undisputed works deal, inter alia, with astrological images and the talismanic use of the same.‡ Abano is cited as a source by Renaissance writers on magic such as Ficino (in De Vita) and Agrippa. The Heptameron, however, was unknown prior to its first appearence in the late 16th century, and may have been an opportunistic piece of hack-work, with the ascription cashing in on Peter of Abano’s fame. As noted, in its first publication it was bound up with the “Fourth Book”, thought to be the genuine work of Agrippa by many Renaissance magicians (though Wier, Agrippa’s pupil, had denounced it at an imposture§ when it first appeared after its purported author’s death; and when it was printed in Agrippa’s Opera, the contents page noted that it was believed to be spurious), and refers back to that text at various places. The seals of the Angels and the names associated with the seasons appear in some versions of the Liber Juratus (Sworn Book of Honorius), a late medieval work (the seals also appear in one of the magical texts published by Scot in the Discoverie of Witchcraft); some of the conjurations in the first part closely resemble those in the Goetia (vide the MathersCrowley edition).** The general procedure in the first part is based on the Solomonic cycle of grimoires, albeit somewhat simplified, though the planetary material in the second appears rather to derive at least partly from the Liber Juratus. Both footnotes and endnotes are by the present editor; the latter deal solely with translation issues. Frater T.S. November 2002 e.v.

The “Fourth Book” and Heptameron first published Marburg, 1559; reprinted 1565, 1567. According to a note in Charles Boer’s translation of Ficino’s De Vita this was because, inter alia, he denied the existence of the Devil. ‡ Cited in D.P. Walker, Spiritual and Demonic Magic from Ficino to Campanella, and Frances A. Yates, Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition. I have not had a chance to consult them directly. Abano’s Conciliator was printed at Venice in 1521.

In the Liber Apologeticus included in his De præstigiis dæmonum et incantioniubs ac ueneficiis, Basle, 1563.
**

Given the dates involved it is more likely that the compiler of the Goetia used Turner’s translation of pseudo-Abano; there is textual evidence which suggests that the Goetia in its present form derives in part from the Pseudomonarchia dæmonum which was bound up with Wier’s De præstigiis &c., so a fortiori the Goetia post-dates the Heptameron.

HEPTAMERON
or ELEMENTS OF MAGICK by PETER OF ABANO, PHILOSOPHER

i

which is the fourth book of Agrippa,* it is spoken sufficiently of magical ceremonies and initiations. But, because he seems to have written for the learned and experienced in this Art, and because he does not treat of the details of the Ceremonies but rather speaks of them in general terms, it was thought advisable to add thereto the Magical Elements of Peter de Abano, that those who are hitherto ignorant and have not tasted of magical superstitions might have at hand1 the knowledge of2 how they may enage themselves therein. For we see in this book an introduction3 to Magical vanity, displaying – ready for use, as it were4 – the distinct functions of spirits,5 how they are to be drawn to discourse and communication: what is to be done every day, and every hour: and how they shall be read, as if they were described syllable by syllable. In brief, in this book are kept all principles of magical conveyences6 which are genuine steps towards magical operations. But because the greatest power is attributed to the Circles (for they are a form of defence to make the operator safe from the evil spirits), we shall treat first of the composition of a Circle.
N THE FORMER BOOK,
