ELEMENTS OF MAGIC

Editor’s introduction.
This short grimoire occupies a curious position in the history of occult literature. It was published as part of a collection of supplementary material to Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy when that was reprinted in an undated (ca. 1600) edition of Agrippa’s Opera. The other texts in that volume were De Occulta Philosophia, seu de cæremoniis Magicis, Liber quartus – the spurious “Fourth Book” attributed to Agrippa which had been circulating since the 1550s, two tracts on Geomancy – one ascribed, probably genuinely, to Agrippa, the other, Geomatiæ Astronomicæ, attributed to one Gerard of Cremona and describing a curious technique which involved the use of Geomancy to create an artificial astrological figure; De Magia Veterum by “Arbatel” (better known as the “Arbatel of Magic”), previously published in an edition dated 1575 at Basle, a dialogue, De illorum Dæmonum qui sub Lunari collimiitio versantur (on those spirits which are exercised in the sublunary bounds), a discourse on various methods of divination, accompanied by commentaries on two chapters of Pliny’s Natural History, and a piece called De incantatione et adjuratione epistola (“incerti authoris”). The first six of these texts were published in an English translation by Robert Turner in 1655. The Heptameron, along with the Fourth Book, was printed almost in its entirety by Francis Barrett in that execrable monument of plagiarism, The Magus, where it formed Part III of the second book. The authorship of the Heptameron is ascribed to one Peter of Abano (Petro d’Apono) who lived 1250-1316, 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 Cœlitus Comperanda) and Agrippa. The Heptameron, however, was unknown prior to its first appearence in the late 16th century, and may well have been an opportunistic piece of hackwork, with the ascription cashing in on Peter of Abano’s fame. In its first publication it was bound up with the “Fourth Book”, believed to be the genuine work of Agrippa by many Renaissance magicians (though Wier, Agrippa’s pupil, had denounced it at spurious when it first appeared after its purported author’s death; and when it was printed in Agrippa’s Opera, the title described it as “Henr. Corn. Agrippæ adscriptus”, i.e. attributed to Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa), and refers back to that text at various places. The seals of the Angels appear in the magical texts published in Scot’s Discoverie of Witchcraft (1584); some of the conjurations in the first part closely resemble those in the Goetia (vide the Mathers-Crowley 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 part does not appear to be. Both footnotes and endnotes are by the present editor; the latter deal solely with translation issues. I am currently at work on a translation of the Fourth Book. Regardless of the false author credit, this was an influential text in late Renaissance and subsequent magic; all English editions this century have been facsimiles of the Turner translation, which even a cursory examination suggests is deeply flawed. This edition of the Heptameron is being circulated partly in the hopes of generating interest in this project. Frater Tanzenden Stern. June 30th, 2000 e.v.

But.4 how they are to be drawn to discourse and communication: what is to be done every day. the name of the present season. as if they were described syllable by syllable.* N Of the Circle and its composition THE FORM of Circles is not always one and the same. the name of the Angel that rules the day when you do the work. Therefore let there be made three circles nine feet across. this may have been interpolated by whoever first bound it up with the Fourth Book. days and hours. their places. in the third place.

Of the names of the hours and their presiding Angels IT IS also to be known. the second from this‡ governs the second hour. When seven hours of the seven planets have passed. † A slightly misleading statement. Mars. Jupiter. § These names are close but not identical to those in the Key of Solomon. that is. you proceed according to the rules written below. So. it is spoken in the proper place. let Alpha be written. and towards the west let there be written Omega. in four angles. Thursdays and Fridays: the Kings of the days of Mercury and Jupiter have two ministers each. which rules the day. autumn and winter. the names of the sun and moon according to the rule of seasons. so are the names to be changed. When the circle is thus finished. towards the East. let Pentagrams be made.e. ‡ i. the next in the “magical order” of the Planets (Saturn. let there be drawn in the four angles the names of the presidential Angels of the air for that day wherein you work: to wit.

Nothing further is said about it in the Heptameron. let him trace the lines of the circle. And let him invoke the angels of the four parts of the world. As he proceeds to the place of the working. whose names you shall see in their places. over which there must be said one Mass of the Holy Ghost. When he reaches the place where he wishes to make the circle. et per hæc tria nomina secreta: AGLA. if possible. and the perfumes. per HAGIOS. ON. saying Asperges me domine &c. given in the planetary tables forming the second half of the Heptameron. * A technical term in astrology: it means within three degrees of longditude of the Sun. So which Angels were meant in the previous part? 6 . and equal. so that the Sun’s influence is considered to swamp that of the body in question. and.Of the method of working Let the Moon be increasing. although the Book is discussed at length by pseudo-Agrippa. † Possibly the Liber Spirituum. and let her not be combust. with the pentacles. a vesture and a pentacle: and let all these things be rightly and duly consecrated and prepared. and let the Master carry the sword. ATHANATOS. and be my assistants11 in my affairs and petitions. And with bended knees. which govern the seven planets. or simply a book of conjurations. adjuro atque contestor per sedem ADONAI. et in adjutorium mihi in meis rebus et petitionibus. On the day of the work itself. After he has made it. Let him have ready the perfume appropriate to the day wherein he would perform the work. quod hodie debeatis adimplere quod cupio. Then let him call the Angels from the four parts of the world§ which rule the air on that day in which the work or experiment is being done. and on the other side thereof the name + ON +. PARACLETOS. let him say: O angeli supradicti10 estote adjutores meæ petitioni.* The operator ought to be clean and purified for nine days before the beginning of the work. be assistants to my request. and a new earthen vessel with fire. and let another bear the book. O aforementioned Angels. let him say: O vos omnes. the seven days of the week. ‡ As above. and on the middle of this sword let there be written this name AGLA +. colours and metals. invoking the said angels. chastity and abstinence from all luxury over the space of three whole days before the day of the operation. Let one of the assistants8 carry the earthen vessel full of fire. O THEOS. TETRAGRAMMATON. and let him be confessed and receive Communion. and let the assistants respond.† another the garment and pentacle.‡ The Master then should be purified with fasting. He ought also to have holy water from a priest. as we have described above. ISCHUROS. let him sprinkle the circle with holy water. perfumes and other things necessary for the composition of the circle. § Probably means the Angels of the Quarters for each day.9 let him continually say Litanies. ALPHA et OMEGA. let him assume the vestments. specially beseeching all the names and spirits written in the Circle.
