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.
