ARBATEL of the Magic of the Ancients

This is a 17th century English translation of the Arbatel de magia veterum (English: Arbatel of the Magic of the Ancients), a Latin grimoire of Renaissance ceremonial magic built up from a series of septenaries of aphorisms, some detailing the famed Olympic Spirits, albeit from within a Christian context.

You can find the book in full here.

This project is part of a larger spirit-themed Halloween collaboration with Esoterica, Angela’s Symposium, and Let’s Talk Religion. Please check out Dr. Justin Sledge’s new video on dybbuk possession, Dr. Angela Puca’s on Ancestor Worship, and Filip Holm’s on Mesopotamian demonology.
