INTRODUCTION by Joseph H. Peterson.
The Key of Solomon is the most famous and important of all Grimoires, or
handbooks of Magic. As A.E. Waite has stated (BCM, pg. 58) "At the head of all,
and, within certain limits, the inspiration and the source of all, stands the Key of
Solomon. ... Mr. Mathers' presentation of the Key of Solomon, which is still in print,
though the work of an uncritical hand, must be held to remove the necessity for
entering into a detailed account of the contents of that curious work. ... The Key of
Solomon can scarcely be judged accurately in the light of its English version, for the
translator, preternaturally regarding it as a highly honourable memorial of lawful
magic, has excised as much as possible the Gotic portions, on the ground that they
are interpolations, which is of course arbitrary."
Mr. Waite's harsh criticism is hardly justified. In fact, Mathers excised very
little. Actually, three of the four significant excisions are operations dealing with
love magic (Colorno, chapters 11-13: The experiment of Love, and how it should be
performed; The experiment or operation of the fruit; Of the operation of love by her
dreams, and how one must practice it. The fourth excision is chapter 14: Operations
and experiments regarding hate and destruction of enemies.)
It is true that the Mathers edition would not be considered critical by modern
standards of scholarship (but Waite's editions of various esoteric texts leave far more
to be desired than Mathers'). Especially wanting are a proper critical apparatus, an
analysis of the relation between manuscripts, and better utilization of the Latin and
Italian manuscripts. Nevertheless, this edition has stood the test of time.
Of course, none of the manuscripts used by Mathers qualify as "ancient" or
even "medieval"; the oldest is probably 16th century. There are however precedents
going back further, on which see Richard Greenfield's Traditions of Belief in Late
Byzantine Demonology.
Mathers' translation is almost entirely dependant on French Colorno
manuscript exemplars dating 18th century. These are represented by the Kings 288,
Harley 3981, and Sloane 3091 manuscripts. Kings 288 and Harl. 3981 indicate they
were translated by Abraham Colorno, which phrase is missing from Sl. 3091. Of
these Sl. 3091 and Kings 288 are easier to read. Abraham Colorno, a Jewish
engineer of Mantua (fl. 1578-1598), translated it into Italian. Kings 288 includes
some phrases which are missing from Harley 3981, so the former is probably not a
direct ancestor of the latter. Sl. 3091 likewise has some phrases missing from the
others, and regularly replaces "Amen" with "Ainsi soit-il" (so be it). Although
Mathers felt Sl3091 "has many errors of transcription," I have generally found it to
be the most correct of the Colorno group (i.e. between Sl3091, H3981, K288, and
In addition, Mathers made significant use of Lansdowne 1202, even though he
pronounces it "more concise in style." Its title page reads: "LES VRAIS
often coincides exactly with the Colorno manuscripts, which convinces me that it
was based mainly on a Colorno ancestor. However the frequent deviations and
elisions suggest to me that the editor was trying to make a more concise and
readable edition, which of course makes its authority less reliable. L1202 displays
simple mistakes in some of the Latin passages. It also regularly replaces "Amen"
with "Ainsi soit-il". Where K288 differs from H3981, L1202 generally seems to
follow the latter. Where Sl3091 differs from the others, L1202 generally follows it.
However, L1202 can't be a direct ancestor of Sl3091 since it contains elements
missing from the latter, such as the missing Psalm and "Anefeneton" from book 2
chapter 17. Nonetheless, it is safe to say that L1202 is derived from a closely related
Also heavily used by Mathers was LES VRITABLES CLAVICULES DE
SALOMON, Traduites de l'Hebreux en langue Latine Par le Rabin ABOGNAZAR
(Lansdowne MSS 1203.) Its inclusion by Mathers is puzzling because it is utterly
different in content from the other manuscripts (aside from a few of the pentacles at
the end of the manuscript) and really should stand alone as a separate text. Another
copy can be found in ms. fran. 25314 de la Bibliothque nationale.
Additional 10862 is primarily written in Latin, although the descriptions of the
pentacles are in Italian. It was written ca. 17th century. Mathers considered it his
oldest and sole Latin source, but makes only limited use of it. Contrary to what
Mathers wrote, I did not find it particularly difficult to read once I got use to the
orthography; likewise it has very few abbreviations: Besides using "&" for "per"
(particle and prefix) it frequently uses abbreviations for "-tur" and "-bus" which are
sometimes indistinguishable. It doesn't distinguish between u and v, and uniformly
uses an archaic form of the ae-ligature (e-ogonek). It is somewhat more succinct
than the Colorno manuscripts, so may preserve some earlier stage in the evolution of
the text. There are also frequent variations from the other manuscripts, many of
which are clearly errors. The nature of the mistakes leads me to believe that its
archetype was difficult to read. The pentacles are labelled with the appropriate
colors. The Latin sometimes corresponds closely with that in Aub. 24, however
some of the text differs considerably.
Article 2 of Ad. 10862 is an Italian manuscript titled Zecorbenei, overo
Clavicola dal re Salomone. This is no doubt a version of the Zekerboni (or
Secorbeni; also compare "Zecorbeni" in Aub. 24) and ascribed to Peter Mora (aka
Pietro Mora or Pierre Mora). In Ritual Magic (1949, pp. 135 f., p. 310) E. M. Butler
describes Mora as an "alchemist, black magician, said to be a Satanist and poisoner
who lived in Milan early in the seventeenth century, and burnt there after having
confessed (under torture) to those crimes..." Casanova seems to have possessed a
version of the same work under the name Zecor-ben or Zecorben. (Butler, loc. cit.,
Casanova, History of My Life, translated by Willard Trask, Volumes III & IV, 1967,
p. 200).
Sloane 1307 is in Italian, and is also ca. 17th century. Prayers and conjurations
are in Latin. It has much material not found in other manuscripts. Some of the
material however can be found in Ad. 10862 art. 2 ("Zecorbeni") mentioned above.
It is hard to read, except for the mystical names which are carefully done. It shares a
lot of readings with Sl. 2383 (see below). Sl. 1307 only has thirteen pentacles, and
much of the lettering in them is in Roman letters instead of the Hebrew found in
most other manuscripts.
For more details on the individual manuscripts, see the British Library
Manuscript catalogue. Also, see MAGIC AND EXPERIMENTAL SCIENCE by Lynn
Thorndike, Chapter XLIX: Solomon and the Ars Notoria.
Since Mathers' edition was published, many more manuscripts have been
uncovered, including the following:

Th&s e-&t&on
This edition is still a work in progress, and feedback is welcome. I am
especially interested in hearing of additional Latin and Italian manuscripts.
I have omitted Mathers' diagrams from this e-text, since they are available in
low cost edition from Weiser I have however, supplied examples from various
manuscripts for comparison purposes.
The corrections to Mathers' translation are based on my research; these have
all been documented in the footnotes. Some of the lists of mystical names are fairly
arbitrary, but I have tried to show enough examples from multiple manuscripts in
order to demonstrate the wide variability. This variability makes it difficult to
construct a more complete stemma with the manuscripts available to me.
In keeping with all of the manuscripts, I have expanded the frequent lists of
Psalms to include the opening words. Since different editions of the Psalms have
different numbering schemes, this is less subject to misinterpretation.
Finally, I have removed all of the material from L1203, since it does not
belong to the Key of Solomon proper, and is available in its entirety -- and in context
-- in a separate edition.
The pentacles are perhaps the biggest puzzle on the textual tradition of
Clavicula Salomonis. Unfortunately Mathers does nothing to elucidate or even
acknowledge the puzzle. The order of the pentacles varies widely from manuscript
to manuscript. The oldest manuscripts only identify some of them with the planets,
and it is apparent that attempts have been made in later manuscripts to identify the
rest with planets too, and to reorganize them accordingly. Gollancz' Hebrew
manuscript shows nine pentacles in a section titled "Concerning the sanctity of the
nine Kandariri (talismans), (revealed unto King Solomon)" (48a-49a). Perhaps these
are the nine mentioned in the text where the spirits are conjured "by the nine medals
or pentacles which we have among our symbols." These nine do not appear in the
Oriental manuscript. There is a series of 24 pentacles in the Greek manuscript; they
are reminiscent of those in Gollancz, but by no means identical. Some of the
pentacles found in the manuscripts used by Mathers are also reminiscent of the
Greek and Hebrew ones, but many are clearly late inventions based on Agrippa,
Archidoxes, and other sources. Mathers seems to have narrowed those in his edition
to exclude most of these clearly later ones. To give some sense of the state of these
pentacles I have included many examples in my editions of L1202 and L1203.
Another area of confusion is the proliferation of ritual implements. The Greek
manuscripts seem to only have a single knife. Some of the proliferation of weapons
is no doubt due to errors in transcription and translation. For example, where the
Latin manuscripts mention a quill knife (artavus), the Italian translator glosses this
as a small pruning hook (lartavo o falcetto), which Mathers mistranslates as
"scimitar AND sickle." It is clear from the drawings that only one implement is
being referred to.
Conspicuously absent is the Ring of Solomon, which figures prominently in
folklore, as well as the Testament of Solomon, the Magical Treatise of Solomon, and
the Lemegeton or Lesser Key of Solomon. Although it is mentioned in one of the
conjurations, its construction and use is not otherwise mentioned.
Another curiosity involves the magical wand. Although prominent in most
Clavicula manuscripts -- not to mention folk literature and the Greek Magical
Papyri -- it is conspicuously absent from the Greek, Hebrew, and English

K!b!l&st&* &n8o*!t&on of
Solomon from Il&ph!: 'e8&
In presenting this celebrated magical work to the student of
occult science some few prefatory remarks are necessary.
The Key of Solomon, save for a curtailed and incomplete copy
published in France in the seventeenth century, has never yet been
printed, but has for centuries remained in manuscript form inaccessible
to all but the few fortunate scholars to whom the inmost recesses of the
great libraries were open. I therefore consider that I am highly honored
in being the individual to whose lot it has fallen to usher it into the
light of day.
The fountain-head and storehouse of Qabalistical magic, and the
origin of much of the ceremonial magic of medival times, the 'Key'
has been ever valued by occult writers as a work of the highest
authority; and notably in our own day Eliphaz Lvi has taken it for the
model on which his celebrated 'Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie'
was based. It must be evident to the initiated reader of Lvi, that the
Key of Solomon was his text book of study, and at the end of this
volume I give a fragment of an ancient Hebrew manuscript of the Key
of Solomon, translated and published in the Philosophie Occulte, as
well as an invocation called the 'Qabalistical Invocation of Solomon,'
which bears close analogy to one in the First Book, being constructed
in the same manner on the scheme of the Sephiroth.
The history of the Hebrew original of the Key of Solomon, is
given in the introductions, but there is every reason to suppose that this
has been entirely lost, and Christian, the pupil of Lvi, says as much in
his Histoire de la Magie.
I see no reason to doubt the tradition which assigns the
authorship of the 'Key' to King Solomon, for among others Josephus,
the Jewish historian, especially mentions the magical works attributed
to that monarch; this is confirmed by many Eastern traditions, and his
magical skill is frequently mentioned in the Arabian Nights.
There are, however, two works on black magic, the Grimorium
Verum, and the Clavicola di Salomone ridolta, which have been
attributed to Solomon, and which have been in some cases especially
mixed up with the present work; but which have nothing really to do
therewith; they are full of evil magic, and I cannot caution the practical
student too strongly against them.
There is also another work called Lemegeton or the Lesser Key
of Solomon the King, which is full of seals of various spirits, and is not
the same as the present book, though extremely valuable in its own
In editing this volume I have omitted one or two experiments
partaking largely of black magic, and which had evidently been
derived from the two goetic works mentioned above; I must further
caution the practical worker against the use of blood; the prayer, the
pentacle, and the perfumes, rightly used, are sufficient; and the former
verges dangerously on the evil path. Let him who, in spite of the
warnings of this volume, determines to work evil, be assured that evil
will recoil on himself and that he will be struck by the reflex current.
This work is edited from several ancient MSS. in the British
Museum which all differ from each other in various points, some
giving what is omitted by the others, but all unfortunately agreeing in
one thing, which is the execrable mangling of the Hebrew words
through the ignorance of the transcribers. But it is in the pentacles that
the Hebrew is worse, the letters being so vilely scribbled as to he
actually undecipherable in some instances, and it has been part of my
work for several years to correct and reinstate the proper Hebrew and
magical characters in the pentacles. The student may therefore safely
rely on their being now as nearly correct in their present reproduction
as it is possible for them to be. I have therefore, wherever I could,
corrected the Hebrew of the magical names in the conjurations and
pentacles; and in the few instances where it was not possible to do so, I
have put them in the most usual form; carefully collating throughout
one MS. with another. The chapters are a little differently classed in
the various MSS., in some instances the matter contained in them
being transposed, &c. I have added notes wherever necessary.
The MSS. from which this work is edited are: -- Add. MSS.,
10,862; Sloane MSS., 1307 and 3091; Harleian MSS., 3981; King's
MSS., 288; and Lansdowne MSS., 1202 and 1203; seven codices in all.
Of all these 10,862 Add. MSS. is the oldest, its date being about
the end of the sixteenth century
; 3981 Harleian is probably about the
middle of the seventeenth century
; the others of rather later date.

Add. MSS. 10,862 is written in contracted Latin, and is hard to
read, but it contains chapters which are omitted in the others and also
an important introduction. It is more concise in its wording. Its title is
short, being simply 'The Key of Solomon, translated from the Hebrew
language into the Latin.' An exact copy of the signature of the writer of
this MS. is given in figure 93.
The pentacles are very badly drawn.

3981 Harleian MSS.; 288 King's MSS.; and 3091 Sloane MSS.,
are similar, and contain the same matter and nearly the same wording;
but the latter MS. has many errors of transcription. They are all in
French. The conjurations and wording of these are much fuller than in
10,862 Add. MSS. and 1202 Lansdowne MSS. The title is "The Key of
Solomon King of the Hebrews, translated from the Hebrew Language
into Italian by Abraham Colorno, by the order of his most Serene
Highness of Mantua; and recently put into French." The pentacles are
much better drawn, are in coloured inks, and in the case of 3091
Sloane MSS., gold and silver are employed.
1307 Sloane MSS. is in Italian; its title is 'La Clavicola di
Salomone Redotta et epilogata nella nostra materna lingua del
dottissimo Gio Peccatrix.' It is full of black magic, and is a jumble of
the Key of Solomon proper, and the two black magic books before
mentioned. The pentacles are badly drawn. It, however, gives part of
the introduction to 10,862 Add. MSS., and is the only other MS. which
does, save the beginning of another Italian version which is bound up
with the former MS., and bears the title 'Zecorbenei.'
1202 Lansdowne MSS. is 'The True Keys of King Solomon, by
Armadel.' It is beautifully written, with painted initial letters, and the
pentacles are carefully drawn in coloured inks. It is more concise in
style, but omits several chapters. At the end are some short extracts
from the Grimorium Verum with the seals of evil spirits, which, as they
do not belong to the Key of Solomon proper, I have not given. For the
evident classification of the 'Key' is in two books and no more.

printing letters, and the pentacles are carefully drawn in coloured inks.

The antiquity of the planetary sigils is shown by the fact that,
among the Gnostic talismans in the British Museum, there is a ring of
copper with the sigils of Venus, which are exactly the same as those
given by the medival writers on magic.
Where Psalms are referred to I have in all instances given the
English and not the Hebrew numbering of them.
In some places I have substituted the word AZOTH for 'Alpha and
Omega,' e.g., on the blade of the knife with the black hilt, Figure 62. I
may remark that the magical sword may, in many cases, be used
instead of the Knife.
In conclusion I will only mention, for the benefit of non-
Hebraists, that Hebrew is written from right to left, and that from the
consonantal nature of the Hebrew Alphabet, it will require fewer letters
than in English to express the same word.
I take this opportunity of expressing my obligations to Dr. Wynn
Westcott for the valuable assistance he has given me in the
reconstruction of the Hebrew pentacles.

Then answered Roboam, and said: How have I
deserved to follow the example of my father Solomon in
such things, who hath been found worthy to receive the
knowledge of all living things through (the teaching of) an
angel of God?
And Solomon said: Hear, O my son, and receive my
sayings, and learn the wonders of God. For, on a certain
night, when I laid me down to sleep, I called upon that
most holy name of God, IAH, and prayed for the ineffable
wisdom, and when I was beginning to close mine eyes, the
angel of the Lord, even Homadiel,
appeared unto me,
spake many things courteously unto me, and said: Listen O
Solomon! thy prayer before the most high is not in vain,
and since thou hast asked neither for long life, nor for
much riches, nor for the souls of thine enemies, but hast
asked for thyself wisdom to perform justice. Thus saith the
Lord: According to thy word have I given unto thee a wise
and understanding heart, so that before thee was none like
unto thee, nor ever shall arise.

And when I comprehended the speech which was
made unto me, I understood that in me was the knowledge
of all creatures, both things which are in the heavens and
things which are beneath the heavens; and I saw that all
the writings and wisdom of this present age were vain and
futile, and that no man was perfect. And I composed a
certain work wherein I rehearsed the secret of secrets, in
which I have preserved them hidden, and I have also
therein concealed all secrets whatsoever of magical arts of
any masters; any secret or experiments, namely, of these
sciences which is in any way worth being accomplished.
Also I have written them in this Key, so that like as a key
openeth a treasure-house, so this (Key) alone may open the
knowledge and understanding of magical arts and
Therefore, O my son! thou mayest see every
experiment of mine or of others, and let everything be
properly prepared for them, as thou shalt see properly set
down by me, both day and hour, and all things necessary;
for without this there will be but falsehood and vanity in
this my work; wherein are hidden all secrets and mysteries
which can be performed; and that which is (set down)
concerning a single divination or a single experiment, that
same I think concerning all things which are in the
Universe, and which have been, and which shall be in
future time.
Therefore, O my son Roboam, I command thee by
the blessing which thou expectest from thy father, that
thou shall make an ivory casket, and therein place, keep,
and hide this my Key; and when I shall have passed away
unto my fathers, I entreat thee to place the same in my
sepulchre beside me, lest at another time it might fall into
the hands of the wicked. And as Solomon commanded, so
was it done.
And when, therefore (men) had waited for a long
time, there came unto the sepulchre certain Babylonian
philosophers; and when they had assembled they at once
took counsel together that a certain number of men should
renew the sepulchre in his (Solomon's) honour; and when
the sepulchre was dug out and repaired the ivory casket
was discovered, and therein was the Key of Secrets, which
they took with joyful mind, and when they had opened it
none among them could understand it on account of the
obscurity of the words and their occult arrangement, and
the hidden character of the sense and knowledge, for they
were not worthy to possess this treasure.
Then, therefore, arose one among them, more
worthy (than the others), both in the sight of the gods, and
by reason of his age, who was called Ioh Grevis
, and
said unto the others: Unless we shall come and ask the

Therefore, when each of them had retired to his bed,
Ioh indeed falling upon his face on the earth, began to
weep, and striking his breast, and said:

What have I deserved (above others), seeing that so
many men can neither understand nor interpret this
knowledge, even though there were no secret thing in
nature which the Lord hath hidden from me! Wherefore
are these words so obscure? Wherefore am I so ignorant?
And then on his bended knees, stretching his hands
to heaven, he said:
O God, the creator of all, thou who knowest all
things, who gavest so great wisdom unto Solomon the son
of David the king; grant unto me, I beseech thee, O holy
omnipotent and ineffable Father, to receive the virtue of
that wisdom, so that I may become worthy by thine aid to
attain unto the understanding of this key of secrets.
And immediately there appeared unto me,
the angel
of the Lord, saying:

Do thou remember if the secrets of Solomon appear
hidden and obscure unto thee, that the Lord hath wished it,
so that such wisdom may not fall into the hands of wicked
men; wherefore do thou promise unto me, that thou art not
willing that so great wisdom should ever come to any
living creature, and that which thou revealest unto any let
them know that they must keep it unto themselves,
otherwise the secrets are profaned and no effect can
And Ioh answered: I promise unto thee that to none
will I reveal (them), save to the honour of the Lord, and
with much discipline, unto penitent, secret, and faithful
Then answered the angel: Go and read the Key, and
its words which were obscure throughout shall be manifest
unto thee.
And after this the angel ascended into Heaven in a
flame of fire.
Then Ioh was glad, and labouring with a clear
mind, understood that which the angel of the Lord had
said, and he saw that the Key of Solomon was changed, so
that it appeared quite clear unto him plainly in all parts.
And Ioh understood that this work might fall into the
hands of the ignorant, and he said: I conjure him into
whose hands this secret may come, by the power of the
creator, and his wisdom, that in all things he may, desire,
intend and perform, that this treasure may come unto no
unworthy (person), nor may he manifest it unto any who is
unwise, nor unto one who feareth not God. Because if he
act otherwise, I pray God that he may never be worthy to
attain unto the desired effect.
And so he deposited the Key, which Solomon
preserved, in the ivory casket. But the words of the Key
are as follows, divided into two books, and shown in

These tables have been collated and compared
with various examples of both MS. and printed. They
are to be used thus: -- Supposing the student wishes to
discover the properties of the hour from 12 to 1 o'clock
p.m. on a Tuesday, let him look in the 'Table of the
Planetary Hours,' and having found the hour marked 1
in the column headed 'Hours from Midnight to
Midnight,' he will see in the column headed 'Hours from
Sunset to Sunset,' on the same line the figure 8, showing
it to be the eighth hour of the day; and in the column
headed Tuesday, the name Mars, showing that it is
under the dominion of the planet Mars. On consulting
the 'Table of the Magical names of the Hours,' etc., he
will find under the number 1, the name Beron, and in
the column 'Tuesday,' the name of the angel Zamael
over against it on the same line, showing that the ruler
of the hour is the angel Zamael, and that its Magical
name is Beron. Further, on referring to the third Table
he will see that Tuesday is under the rule of the planet
Mars, whose Archangel is Khamael, angel Zamael,
metal iron, and Colour Red. Similarly it will be found
that the hour from 10 to 11 p.m. on Saturday is the sixth
hour of the night, under the dominion of the Sun, that its
Magical name is Cerra, and that the angel Michael
rules it; while Saturday itself is under the dominion of
the Archangel Tzaphqiel, of the angel Cassiel, of the
planet Saturn, and that the metal lead and the colour
black are applicable to it.

It is, therefore, advisable to know that the hours of
the day and of the night together, are twenty-four in
number, and that each hour is governed by one of the
seven planets in regular order, commencing at the highest
and descending to the lowest. The order of the planets is as
follows: ShBThAI, Shabbathai, Saturn; beneath Saturn is
TzDQ, Tzedeq, Jupiter; beneath Jupiter is MADIM,
Madim, Mars; beneath Mars is ShMSh, Shemesh, the Sun;
beneath the Sun is NVGH, Nogah, Venus; beneath Venus
is KVKB, Kokav, Mercury; and beneath Mercury is
LBNH, Levanah, the Moon, which is the lowest of all the
It must, therefore, be understood that the planets
have their dominion over the day which approacheth
nearest unto the name which is given and attributed unto
them -- viz., over Saturday, Saturn; Thursday, Jupiter;
Tuesday, Mars;
Sunday, the Sun; Friday, Venus;
Wednesday, Mercury; and Monday, the Moon.

The rule of the planets over each hour begins from
the dawn at the rising of the Sun on the day which take its
name from such planet, and the planet which follows it in
order, succeeds to the rule over the next hour. Thus (on
Saturday) Saturn rules the first hour, Jupiter the second,
Mars the third, the Sun the fourth, Venus the fifth,
Mercury the sixth, the Moon the seventh, and Saturn
returns in the rule over the eighth, and the others in their
the planets always keeping the same relative order.

Note that each experiment or magical operation
should be performed under the planet, and usually in the
hour, which refers to the same. For example: --
In the days and hours of Saturn thou canst perform
experiments to summon the souls from Hades, but only of
those who have died a natural death. Similarly on these
days and hours thou canst operate to bring either good or
bad fortune to buildings; to have familiar spirits attend
thee in sleep; to cause good or ill success in business,
possessions, goods, seeds, fruits, and similar things, in
order to acquire learning; to bring destruction and to give
death, and to sow hatred and discord.
The days and hours of Jupiter are proper for
obtaining honours, acquiring riches; contracting
friendships, preserving health; and arriving at all that thou
canst desire.
In the days and hours of Mars thou canst make
experiments regarding war; to arrive at military honour; to
acquire courage; to overthrow enemies; and further to
cause ruin, slaughter, cruelty, discord; to wound and to
give death.
The days and hours of the Sun are very good for
perfecting experiments regarding temporal wealth, hope,
gain, fortune, divination, the favour of princes, to dissolve
hostile feeling, and to make friends.
The days and hours of Venus are good for forming
friendships; for kindness and love; for joyous and pleasant
undertakings, and for traveling.
The days and hours of Mercury are good to operate
for eloquence and intelligence; promptitude in business;
science and divination; wonders; apparitions; and answers
regarding the future. Thou canst also operate under this
Planet for thefts; writings; deceit; and merchandise.
The days and hours of the Moon are good for
embassies; voyages; envoys; messages; navigation;
reconciliation; love; and the acquisition of merchandise by

dependeth thereon.

The hours of the Moon are proper for making trial of
experiments relating to recovery of stolen property, for

The hours of Venus are furthermore useful for lots,

But in order to thoroughly effect the operations of
this art, thou shouldest perform them not only on the hours
but on the days of the planets as well, because then the
experiment will always succeed better,

For those matters then which appertain unto the
Moon, such as the invocation of spirits, the works of
necromancy, and the recovery of stolen property, it is
necessary that the Moon should be in a terrestrial sign,
viz.: -- Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn.
For love, grace, and invisibility, the Moon should be
in a fiery sign, viz.: -- Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
For hatred,
discord, and destruction, the Moon
should be in a watery sign, viz.: -- Cancer, Scorpio, or

For experiments of a peculiar nature, which cannot
be classed under any certain head, the Moon should be in
an airy sign, viz.: -- Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius.
But if these things seem unto thee difficult to
accomplish, it will suffice thee merely to notice the Moon
after her combustion, or conjunction with the Sun,
especially just when she
quits his beams and appeareth
visible. For then it is good to make all experiments for the
construction and operation of any matter. That is why the
time from the New unto the Full Moon is proper for
performing any of the experiments of which we have
spoken above. But in her decrease or wane it is good for
war, disturbance, and discord. Likewise the period when
she is almost deprived of light, is proper for experiments

of invisibility, and of death.
But observe inviolably that thou commence nothing
while the Moon is in conjunction with the Sun, seeing that
this is extremely unfortunate, and that thou wilt then be
able to effect nothing; but the Moon quitting his beams
and increasing in Light, thou canst perform all that thou
desirest, observing nevertheless the directions in this

it should be especially on the day of Mercury and in his

may be able to see thee or to hinder thee, before the
completion of the experiment, whether thou shouldest
wish to work by day or by night. But if thou shouldest
wish to work by night, perfect thy work on the succeeding
night; if by day, seeing that the day beginneth with the
rising of the Sun (perfect thy work on) the succeeding day.

Verily, since no experiments for converse with
spirits can be done without a circle being prepared,
whatsoever experiments therefore thou wishest to
undertake for conversing with spirits, therein thou must
learn to construct a certain particular circle; that being
done surround that circle with the circle of art for better
caution and efficacy.
If thou wishest to succeed, it is necessary to make the
following experiments and arts in the appropriate days and hours,
with the requisite solemnities and ceremonies contained and laid
down in the following chapters.
Experiments, then, are of two kinds; the first is to make trial
of what, as I have said, can be easily performed without a circle,
and in this case it is not necessary to observe anything but what
thou wilt find in the proper chapters. The second can in no way be
brought to perfection without the circle; and in order to accomplish
this perfectly it is necessary to take note of all the preparations
which the master of the art and his disciples must undertake before
the circle.

Before commencing operations both the master and his
disciple; must abstain with great and thorough continence during
the space of nine days from sensual pleasures and from vain and
foolish conversation; as plainly appeareth in the Second Book,
Chapter 4. Six of these nine days having expired, he must recite
frequently the prayer and confession as will be told him; and on the
seventh day, the master being alone, let him enter into a secret
place, let him take off his clothes, and bathe himself from head to
foot in consecrated and exorcised water, saying devoutly and
humbly the prayer, 'O Lord Adonai,' etc., as it is written in the
Second Book, Chapter 2.
The prayer being finished, let the master quit the water, and
put upon his flesh raiment of white linen clean and unsoiled; and
then let him go with his disciples unto a secret place and command
them to strip themselves naked; and they having taken off their
clothes, let him take exorcised water and pour it upon their heads
so that it flows down to their feet and bathes them completely; and
while pouring this water upon them let the master say: 'Be ye
regenerate, renewed, washed, and pure,' etc., as in Book II.,
Chapter 3.
being done, the disciples must clothe themselves,
putting upon their flesh, like their master, raiment of white linen
clean and unsoiled; and the three last days the master and his
disciples should fast, observing the solemnities and prayers marked
in Book II., Chapter 2.

Note that the three last days should be calm weather, without
wind, and without clouds rushing hither and thither over the face of
the sky. On the last day let the master go with his disciples unto a
secret fountain of running water, or unto a flowing stream, and
there let each of them. taking off his clothes, wash himself with
due solemnity, as is rehearsed in Book II. And when they are clean
and pure, let each put upon him garments of white linen, pure, and
clean, using the prayers and ceremonies described in Book II. After
which let the master alone say the confession. The which being
finished, the master in sign of penitence will kiss
the disciples on
the forehead, and each of them will kiss the other. Afterwards let
the master extend his hands over the disciples, and in sign of
absolution absolve and bless them; which being done he will
distribute to each of his disciple the instruments necessary for
magical art, which he is to carry into the circle.

When the master shall have arrived at the place appointed,
together with his disciples, he having lighted the flame of the fire,
and having exorcised it afresh as is laid down in the Second Book,
shall light the candle and place it in the lantern, which one of the
disciples is to hold ever in his hand to light the master at his work.
Now the master of the art, every time that he shall have occasion
for some particular purpose to speak with the spirits, must
endeavor to form certain circles which shall differ somewhat, and
shall have some particular reference to the particular experiment
under consideration. Now, in order to succeed in forming such a
circle concerning magical art, for the greater assurance and
efficacy thou shalt construct it in the following manner: --
Take thou the knife or quill knife,
consecrated after the
manner and order which we shall deliver unto thee in the Second
Book. With this knife or quill knife
thou shalt describe, beyond
the inner circle which thou shalt have already formed, a second
circle, encompassing the other at the distance of one foot therefrom
and having the same centre.

Furthermore, thou shalt circumscribe about these circles two
squares, the angles of which shall be turned towards the four
quarters of the Earth; and the space between the lines of the outer
and inner square shall be half-a-foot. The extreme angles of the
outer square shall be made the centres of four circles, the measure
or diameter of which shall be one foot. All these are to be drawn
with the knife or consecrated instrument
of art. And within these
four circles thou must write these four names of God the most holy

Or he may as well recite them before tracing the circle.
The which being finished, and the fumigations being
performed, as is described in the chapter on fumigations in the
Second Book, the master should reassemble his disciples,
encourage them, reassure them, fortify them, and conduct them
into the parts of the circle of art, where he must place them in the
four quarters of the Earth, encourage them, and exhort them to fear
nothing, and to keep in the places assigned to them. Also, the
disciple who is placed towards the East should have a pen, ink,
paper, silk, and white cotton, all clean and suitable for the work.
Furthermore, each of the companions should have a new sword
drawn in his hand (besides the consecrated magical sword of art),
and he should keep his hand resting upon the hilt thereof, and he
should on no pretext quit the place assigned to him, nor move
After this the master should quit the circle, light the fuel in
the earthen pots, and place upon them the censers, in the four
quarters of the Earth; and he should have in his hand the
consecrated taper of wax, and he should light it and place it in a
hidden and secret place prepared for it. Let him after this re-enter
and close the circle.
The master should afresh exhort his disciples, and explain to
them all that they have to do and to observe; the which commands
they should promise and vow to execute.
Let the master then repeat this prayer: --

Let the master now arise and place upon his head a crown
made of virgin paper,
on the which there must be written (with
the colours and other necessary things which we shall describe
hereafter), these four names AGLA, AGLAI, AGLATA,
AGLATAI. The which names are to be placed in the front, behind,

Furthermore, the master ought to have with him in the circle,
those pentacles or medals
which are necessary to his purpose,
which are described hereinafter, and which should be constructed
according to the rules given in the chapter on pentacles. They
should be described on virgin paper with a pen; and ink, blood, or
colours, prepared according to the manner which we shall hereafter
show in the chapters on these subjects. It will be sufficient to take
only those pentacles which are actually required, they should be
sewed to the front of the linen robe, on the chest, with the
consecrated needle of the art, and with a thread which has been
woven by a young girl.

After this, let the master turn himself towards the eastern
quarter (unless directed to the contrary, or unless he should be
wishing to call spirits which belong to another quarter of the
Universe), and pronounce with a loud voice the conjuration
contained in this chapter. And if the spirits be disobedient and do
not then make their appearance, he must arise and take the
exorcised knife of art
wherewith he hath constructed the circle,
and raise it towards the sky as if he wished to beat or strike the air,
and conjure the spirits. Let him then lay his right hand and the
knife upon the pentacles or medals, constructed of, and described
upon virgin paper, which are fastened to or sewn upon his breast,
and let him repeat the following conjuration upon his knees:

The which being said and done, thou shalt see them draw
near and approach from all parts. But if they be hindered, detained,
or occupied in some way, and so that they cannot come, or if they
are unwilling to come, then, the suffumigations and censings being
performed anew, and (the disciples) having anew, by especial
order, touched their swords, and the master having encouraged his
disciples, he shall reform the circle with the knife of art, and,
raising the said knife towards the sky, he shall as it were strike the
air therewith. After this he shall lay his hand upon the pentacles,
and having bent his knees before the most High, he shall repeat
with humility the following confession; the which his disciples
shall also do, and they shall recite it in a low and humble voice, so
that they can scarcely be heard.

The Prayer being finished, let the Exorcist lay his
hand upon the pentacles, while one of the Disciples shall
hold open before him the Book wherein are written the
prayers and conjurations proper for conquering,
subduing, and reproving the spirits. Then the Master,
turning towards each Quarter of the Earth, and raising his
eyes to Heaven, shall say:

or that they cannot come, or that they are unwilling to
come: then let him commence afresh to invoke them after
the following manner, and let the exorcist be assured that

they could not refrain from coming to accomplish his

If they then immediately appear, it is well; if not,
let the master uncover the consecrated pentacles which he
should have made to constrain and command the spirits,
and which he should wear fastened round his neck,
holding the medals (or pentacles) in his left hand, and the
consecrated knife in his right; and encouraging his
companions, he shall say with a loud voice:

If they appear at this time, show them the pentacles,
and receive them with kindness, gentleness, and courtesy;
reason and speak with them, question them, and ask from
them all things which thou hast proposed to demand.
But if, on the contrary, they do not yet make their
appearance, holding the consecrated knife
in the right
hand, and the pentacles
being uncovered by the removal
of their consecrated covering, strike and beat the air with
the knife as if wishing to commence a combat, comfort
and exhort thy companions, and then in a loud and stern
voice repeat the following conjuration:

Then it is certain that they will come, even if they
be bound with chains of fire, unless prevented by affairs
of the very greatest importance, but in this latter case they
will send ambassadors and messengers by whom thou
shalt easily and surely learn what occupies the spirits and
what they are about. But if they appear not yet in answer
to the above conjuration, and are still disobedient, then let
the master of the art or exorciser arise and exhort his
4@. A+b. 26; *+m .l!-&o
companions to be of good cheer and not to despair of the
ultimate success of the operation; let him strike the air
with the consecrated knife
towards the four quarters of
the Universe; and then let him kneel in the midst of the
circle, and the companions also in their several places,
and let them say consecutively with him in a low voice,
turning in the direction of the East, the following:

They will then immediately talk with thee, as a friend
speaketh unto a friend. Ask of them all that thou desirest, with
constancy, firmness, and assurance, and they will obey thee.
But if they appear not yet, let not the master on that
account lose his courage, for there is nothing in the world
stronger and of greater force to overawe the spirits than
constancy. Let him, however, re-examine and reform the
circle, and let him take up a little dust of the earth, which he
shall cast towards the four quarters of the Universe; and
having placed his knife upon the ground, let him say on his
knees, turning towards the direction of the North:

These words having been said kneeling upon the earth,
let the master shortly after arise and open his arms wide as if
wishing to embrace the air, and say:

These things being thus done and performed, ye shall
see the spirits come from all sides in great haste with their
princes and superiors; the spirits of the First Order, like
soldiers, armed with spears, shields, and corslets; those of the
second Order like barons, princes, dukes, captains, and
generals of armies. For the Third and last Order their king will
appear, before whom go many players on instruments of
music, accompanied by beautiful and melodious voices which
sing in chorus.
Then the exorcist, or master of the art, at the arrival of
the king, whom he shall see crowned with a diadem, should
uncover the holy pentacles and medals which he weareth
upon his breast covered with a cloth of silk or of fine twined
linen, and show them unto him, saying:
%ehol- the s&.ns !n- holy n!mes by !n- before

th!t &s &n He!8en( +pon I!rth( or &n Hell.
H+mble ye yo+rsel8es( therefore( +n-er the
m&.hty h!n- of Go-.
Then will the king bow the knee before thee, and will
say, 'What dost thou wish, and wherefore hast thou caused us
to come hither from the infernal abodes?'
Then shall the exorcist, or master of magical art, with an
assured air and a grave and imperious voice, order and
command him to be tranquil, to keep the rest of his attendants
peaceable, and to impose silence upon them.
Let him, also, renew his fumigations, and offer large
quantities of incense, which he should at once place upon the
fire, in order to appease the spirits as he hath promised them.
He should then cover the pentacles, and he will see wonderful
things, which it is impossible to relate, touching worldly
matters and all sciences.
This being finished, let the master uncover the
pentacles, and demand all that he shall wish from the king of
the spirits, and if there are one or two spirits only, it will be
the same; and having obtained all his desire, he shall thus
license them to depart:
In the n!me of ADONAI( the etern!l !n-
e8erl!st&n. one( let e!*h of yo+ ret+rn +nto
h&s pl!*eN be there pe!*e bet=een +s !n- yo+(
!n- be ye re!-y to *ome =hen ye !re *!lle-.
After this he should recite the first chapter of Genesis,
'Berashith Bara Elohim, In the beginning, etc.'
This being done, let them all in order quit the circle, one
after the other, the master first. Furthermore let them bathe
their faces with the exorcised water, as will be hereafter told,
and then let them take their ordinary raiment and go about
their business.
Take notice
and observe carefully that this last
conjuration is of so great importance and efficacy, that even if
the spirits were bound with chains of iron and fire, or shut up
in some strong place, or retained by an oath, they could not
even then delay to come. But supposing that they were being
conjured in some other place or part of the Universe by some
other exorcist or master of the art, by the same conjuration;
the master should add to his conjuration that they should at
least send him some messengers, or some individual to
declare unto him where they are, how employed, and the
reason why they cannot come and obey him.

But if (which is almost impossible) they be even yet
self-opinionated and disobedient, and unwilling to obey; in
this case their names should be written on virgin paper, which
he should soil and fill with mud, dust, or clay. Then he shall
kindle a fire with dry rue, upon which he shall put powdered
assafoetida, and other things of evil odour; after which let him
put the aforesaid names, written on parchment or virgin paper,

Then will they assuredly come without any delay, and
in great haste, crying: 'O our lord and prince, deliver us out of
this suffering.'
All this time thou shouldest have near thee ready an
exorcised pen, paper, and ink, as will be described hereinafter.
Write their names afresh, and kindle fresh fire, whereon thou
shalt put gum benjamin, olybdanum, and storax
to make
therewith a fumigation; with these odours thou shalt afresh,
perfume the aforesaid paper with the names; but thou
shouldest have these names ready prepared beforehand. Then
show them the holy pentacles, and ask of them what thou wilt,
and thou shalt obtain it; and having gained thy purpose, send
away the spirits, saying:

Thou shouldest further make a book of virgin paper, and
therein write the foregoing conjurations, and constrain the
demons to swear upon the same book that they will come
whenever they be called, and present themselves before thee,
whenever thou shalt wish to consult them. Afterwards thou
canst cover this book with sacred sigils on a plate of silver,
and therein write or engrave the holy pentacles. Thou mayest
open this book either on Sundays or on Thursdays, rather at
night than by day, and the spirits will come.
Regarding the expression 'night,' understand the night
following, and not the night preceding the aforesaid days,

for indeed they are creatures of darkness who hate the light.

As we have already made mention of the pentacles, it is
necessary that thou shouldest understand that the whole
science and understanding of our Key dependeth upon the
operation, knowledge, and use of pentacles.
He then who shall wish to perform any operation by the
means of the medals,
or pentacles, and therein to render
himself expert, must observe what hath been hereinbefore
ordained. Let him then, O my son Roboam, know and
understand that in the aforesaid pentacles he shall find those
ineffable and most holy names which were written by the
finger of God in the tablets of Moses; and which I, Solomon,
have received through the ministry of an angel by divine
revelation. These then have I collected together, arranged,
consecrated, and kept, for the benefit of the human race, and
the preservation of body and of soul.

The pentacles should then be made in the days and

It is necessary to have a chamber or cabinet specially set
apart and newly cleaned, wherein thou canst remain without
interruption, the which having entered with thy companions,
thou shalt incense and perfume it with the odours and
perfumes of the art. The sky should be clear and serene. It is
necessary that thou shouldest have one or more pieces of
virgin paper prepared and arranged ready, as we shall tell you
more fully later on, in its place.
Thou shalt commence the writing or construction of the
pentacles in the hour aforesaid. Among other things, thou
shalt chiefly use these colours: Gold, cinnabar or vermilion
red, and celestial or brilliant azure blue. Furthermore, thou
shalt make these medals or pentacles with exorcised pen and
colours, as we shall hereafter show thee. Whensoever thou
constructest them, if thou canst complete them in the hour
wherein thou didst begin them, it is better. However, if it be
absolutely necessary to interrupt the work, thou shouldest
await the proper day and hour before re-commencing it.
The pentacles being finished and completed, take a
cloth of very fine silk, as we shall hereafter ordain thee, in the
which thou shalt wrap the pentacles. After which thou shalt
take a large vessel of earth filled with charcoal, upon the
which there must be put frankincense, mastic, and aloes, all
having been previously conjured and exorcised as shall
hereafter be told thee. Thou must also be thyself pure, clean,
and washed, as thou shalt find given in the proper place.
Furthermore, thou shouldest have the quill knife or knife of
the art,
with the which thou shalt make a circle, and trace
within it an inner circle, and in the space between the two
thou shalt write the names of God,
which thou shalt think fit
and proper. It is necessary after this that thou shouldest have
within the circle a vessel of earth with burning coals and
odoriferous perfumes thereon; with the which thou shalt
fumigate the aforesaid pentacles; and, having turned thy face
towards the East, thou shalt hold the said pentacles over the
smoke of the incense, and shalt repeat devoutly the following
Psalms of David my father:

These words being said, thou shalt perfume the
pentacles with the same sweet scents and perfumes, and
afterwards having wrapped them in a piece of prepared silk
cloth, thou shalt put them in a place fit and clean, which thou
mayest open whenever it shall please thee, and close it again,
at thy pleasure and according unto thy will. We will hereafter
show thee the method and manner of preparing the aforesaid
place, of perfuming it with scents and sweet odours, and of
sprinkling it with the water and water-sprinkler of magical art;
for all these things contain many good properties, and
innumerable virtues, as experience will easily teach thee.

These things being accomplished
they will make thee to see plainly that

exorcist, or master of the art, should be
such as is ordained in the chapter
concerning the exorcist and his
companions; and if in this experiment it
should be necessary to write down
characters or names, thou shalt do that
which it is necessary to observe
regarding the pen, ink, and paper, as is
duly prescribed in the chapters
concerning them.

If thou wishest to perform the

be necessary to observe the day and the

chapters. But if thou needest not observe
the day and the hour as marked in the
chapter thereon, thou shalt do as taught
in the chapter which precedeth it. If in
the course of the experiment it be
necessary to write anything, it should be
done as is described in the chapters

paper, and ink, or blood. But if the
matter is to be accomplished by

1. Translation by Joseph Peterson. This
If you wish to undertake any
experiments of favor, influence, or love,
for possessing the love of any person,
whether man or woman, it is necessary
that the operator has prepared in such a
manner, as is said in the chapter
concerning the exorcist (Book II,
chapter 2). Then you may begin to
perform the said experiment, which you
may complete at any time that has been
noted, but if the time and day are not
mentioned, use those discussed in the
chapter on the hours. And if the
experiment requires an image of wax, or
any other material, you must prepare it
specially as described in the chapter on
the same (Book II, chapter 18).
Afterwards you should say the
following words over the matter
No.!( Jes( Asropol&m( Asmo(

chapter was omitted by Mathers, who considered
it unworthy of the rest of the text. He substituted
instead L1203, chapters 25: To hinder a
sportsman from killing any game.
Ad. 36674 contains an abbreviated version of
this chapter. It includes a conjuration which
begins "Venus, ester, Astropolyn, Asmo,
Mercurius, Jupiter, Saturnus," which corresponds
with "Noga Jes artphelem asmo corau sabcedes
sabaday" in M276. i.e. the English manuscript
recognizes Noga, Cocab, Zedeck, and Sabbathi
as the Hebrew names of the names of the planets
Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn.
Also of interest, Aub24 includes the phrase "per
virtutem et potentiam Sanctissimi ADONAY
cuius MARCHUD sine fine" which corresponds
to "per virtu et per potenta del sanctissimo nome
ADONAY il MALCUD del quale sensa fine."
Ad. 10862 seems to translate the Hebrew
MALCHUD as it reads, "[per virtutem] et
potentiam Sanctissimi ADONAY cuius
Imperium sine fine" (throught the virtue and
power of the most holy ADONAY who RULES
without end).
Note also the invocation of the four kings of the
cardinal directions, given variously (generally
Oriens, Paymon, Egyn, and Amaymon). Aub24
and Ad10862 start with "O Oriens Rex egregio
qui in oriente regnas"; which might be translated
as "O Oriens, illustrious King, who rules in the
East." Ad36674 takes "egregio" (illustrious) as a
proper name and translates the passage as "O
thou orient king Eggye, which reineth and ruleth
in the East" M276 reads "O omnis rex egregie

Having completed these things,
form the image as described in the
experiment, and if it is necessary to
write on the image, use the needle or
quill pen and ink of the Art. If incensing
or other observances are required, see
the instructions in the relevant chapters.
And if an invocation should be made, let
qui in oriente regnas"; Sl. 1307 has "O Asmodee,
illustrious king who rules in the East"; Sl. 3091
and K288 read "O Asmode, Orient tres
reluisant" (O Asmodee, the East very glittering.)
In Sl. 1307 this is followed by another chapter
(chap. 9) on love magic, this one using a statue
of wax, invoking "Sichel, Richel, Moches, Aray,
Saiatri, Amacon, Enacon." This is followed by
(chap. 10), which includes "Esperimento d'
Amore toccando", "Esp. d' Amore mangiando",
and "Esp, d' Amore gettando" (experiments of
love using touching, eating, and throwing). -JHP

M276, Sl. 1307, K288, and Sl. 3091 all read

This done, conjure again using the
conjuration specified in the experiment
itself, and if the woman arrives that very
hour it is well. If however she doesnt
appear, put the image under the head of
your bed, and within three days you will
see a great wonder, for the woman will
come to you at once, or else will send a
message to you.
If the image is painted, or
engraved in any metal, or cast in lead or
tin, let it be done as said, and if the
experiment requires characters or names
to be written or painted, use the paper,
needle, quill pen and colours (or else
ink), as described in the appropriate
places, observing the days and hours,
and all the necessary solemnities
required by the experiment.
If however the experiment
requires you to touch the loved-one, or
put some brief (short summary or letter),
or similar thing under the threshold or
other place which the woman must pass,
if the experiment requires some dust to
be made and strewn about, or requires
something to be drunk or eaten, make
sure to solemnly observe the hours ,
times, materials, and tools, as described
in the relevant chapters. Afterwards, say
the following oration over the dust to be
scattered, or things to be drunk or eaten:
In =h&*he8er p!rt of the =orl-

for me.
Then perform those things
described in the experiment, and with
the experiment written with figures and
characters in the name of whichever
person, and such that she passes over it.
Once the characters, figure, image of
wax or other materials has been
prepared or inscribed, say over those
things the following conjuration:
I *onJ+re yo+ An!el( RenH+el Sor
Tel&el( pr&n*es of

the =hole of her tho+.hts m!y be
!l=!ys on me.
Afterwards bury the experiment in
the crossroad, then complete the
experiment [and you will see the truth].
When you wish to perform the
experiment of the fruit, prepare the same
in the appropriate day and hour. But
must be a beautiful fruit, and spotless
(and when I say fruit, understand that I
mean any kind of produce).

You should therefore take it in
your hand in a secret place, and before
you pick it from the tree (if it still
requires harvesting), sprinkle it with the
water of the art. Then, in the secret
place, pick it, using incense, and saying
this oration over it.
1. Translated by JHP. This chapter was
omitted by Mathers, who substituted instead
L1203, chapters 27: How to make the magic
2. The text uses "pomum" in the chapter heading
and first part of the sentence, which can mean
any kind of fruit. The remark in parentheses uses
the word "fructus" which can mean any kind of
produce. The French manuscript K288 translates
Lat. "pomum" as "pomme" (apple): "et tout ce
que je dis de la pomme, je le dis pareillement de
toutes sortes de fruits, comme Poire, Pche" (and
whenever I say 'apple,' I mean any kind of fruit,
such as pear, peach).

This is an ineffable experiment if
you desire to enjoy
a lover in a dream.
Before beginning the conjuration on
behalf of the one you wish to dream of,
(operating in the hour mentioned in the
second book), observe that the sky is
clear. It may help to stand in your
chamber looking into the sky, at the
stars and the Moon, and humbly say in
your heart:

If thou wishest to perform the
experiment of seeking favour and
influence, observe in what manner the
Experiment is to be carried out, and if it
be dependent upon the day and the hour,
perform it in the day and the hour
required, as thou wilt find it in the
chapter concerning the hours; and if the
experiment be one that requireth
writing, thou shalt write as it is said in
the chapter concerning the same; and if
it be with penal bonds, pacts, and
fumigations, then thou shalt cense with
a fit perfume as is said in the chapter
concerning suffumigations; and if it be
necessary to sprinkle it with water and
hyssop, then let it be as in the chapter
concerning the same; similarly if such
experiment require characters, names, or
the like, let such names be written as the
chapter concerning the writing of
characters, and place the same in a clean
place as hath been said. Then thou shalt
repeat over it the following oration:

This being said, thou shalt place it
in clean silk, and bury it for a day and a
night at the junction of four cross-roads;
and whensoever thou wishest to obtain
any grace or favor from any, take it,
having first properly consecrated it
according to the rule and place it in thy
right hand, and seek thou what thou wilt
it shall not be denied thee. But if thou
doest not the Experiment carefully and
rightly, assuredly thou shalt not succeed
in any manner.
For obtaining grace and influence

Experiments upon enemies may
be performed in several ways, but,
whether with waxen images or some
other instrument, the particulars of each
must be diligently and faithfully
observed. Should the day and hour fail
thee, proceed as already laid down, and
prepare the image or instrument proper
to this effect in the order and manner
thereof. Fumigate with the proper
perfumes, and if writing be required on
the image, let it be done with the needle
or stylet of the art, as aforesaid. Next
recite the following words once over the
said image:-

Deposit the image in some place
perfumed with evil odours, especially
those of Mars, such as sulphur and
assafoetida. Let it remain there for one
night, having duly asperged it,
observing the proper hour and time.
Do likewise when the experiment
is performed with characters and names,
by touching the lovers with words, or by
whatsoever other manner. But when the
experiment is made by giving something
to be eaten, the same must be performed
on the day and hour proper to this work.
All things being prepared, place
them before you, and say:

Experiments relating to mockery
and scorn
may be performed in many
ways. When thou shalt wish to practice
these experiments with regard to any
person, thou shalt observe the day and
the hour as we have already said. Should
it be necessary to write characters or
words, it should be done upon virgin
paper, as we shall show farther on. As
for the ink, if it be not specially
ordained in this operation, it is advisable
to use the blood of a bat with the pen
and the needle of art. But before
describing or writing the characters or
names, all the necessary rules should be
observed as given in the proper
chapters, and having carefully followed
out all these, thou shalt pronounce with
a low voice
the following words:

ordained; but if the experiment be
performed in a different way, yet shalt
thou always say the aforesaid words,
and they should be repeated as before
If thou practicest these things in
this manner correctly, thou shalt arrive
at the effect of thine operations and
experiments by the which thou mayest
easily deceive the senses.
We have spoken in the preceding
chapters of common experiments and
operations, which it is more usual to
practice and put in operation, and
therein thou mayest easily see that we
have told thee sufficient for their
perfection. In this chapter we treat of
extraordinary and unusual experiments,
which can also be done in many ways.
None the less should those who
wish to put in practice the like
experiments and operations observe the
days and hours as is laid down in the
proper chapters, and should be provided
with virgin paper and other necessary
things. Having prepared a similar
experiment thou shalt say:

The medals or pentacles, which we make for the purpose of
striking terror into the spirits and reducing them to obedience,
have besides this wonderful and excellent virtue. If thou invokest
the spirits by virtue of these pentacles, they will obey thee without
repugnance, and having considered them they will be struck with
astonishment, and will fear them, and thou shalt see them so
surprised by fear and terror, that none of them will be sufficiently
bold to wish to oppose thy will. They are also of great virtue and
efficacy against all perils of earth, of air, of water, and of fire,
against poison which hath been drunk, against all kinds of
infirmities and necessities, against binding, sortilege, and sorcery,
against all terror and fear, and wheresoever thou shalt find thyself,
if armed with them, thou shalt be in safety all the days of thy life.
Through them do we acquire grace and good-will from man
and woman, fire is extinguished, water is stayed, and all creatures
fear at the sight of the names which are therein, and obey through
that fear.
These pentacles are usually made of the metal the most
suitable to the nature of the planet; and then there is no occasion
to observe the rule of particular colours. They should be engraved
with the instrument of art in the days and hours proper to the
Saturn ruleth over lead; Jupiter over tin; Mars over iron; the
Sun over gold; Venus over copper; Mercury over the mixture of
metals; and the Moon over silver.

blemish, and omit not any of the preparations.
This Key, full of mysteries, hath been revealed unto me by
an angel.
Accursed be he who undertaketh our art without having the
qualities requisite to thoroughly understand our Key, accursed be
he who invoketh the name of God in vain, for such an one
prepareth for himself the punishments which await the
unbelievers, for God shall abandon them and relegate them unto
the depths of Hell amongst the impure spirits.
For God is great and immutable; he hath been for ever, and

pentacle has been
unknown. It will
be seen at a
glance that it is a
square of five,
giving twenty-
five letters,
which, added to
the unity, gives
twenty-six, the
numerical value
of IHVH. The
Hebrew versicle
surrounding it is
taken from Psalm
lxxii. 8, 'His
dominion shall be
also from the one
sea to the other,
and from the
flood unto the
world's end.' This
passage consists
also of exactly
letters, and its
total numerical
(considering the
final letters with
numbers), added
to that of the
name Elohim, is
exactly equal to
the total
numerical value
of the twenty-five
letters in the
square. -SLM
This is also the
second pentacle
in M276 and
Aub24, but the
third in Sl. 1307,
and the thirtieth in
Ad. 10862, and
number 18 in W.
The verse reads
"et dominabitur a
mari usque ad
mare et a flumine
usque ad terminos
orbis terrarum" In
Sl. 1307 the
etc. are all written
in Roman letters.
