The Lesser Key of Solomon

The Lesser Key of Solomon
The Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis[note 1] or Lemegeton, is an anonymous grimoire (or spell book) on demonology. It was compiled in the mid-17th century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older.[1][2] It is divided into five books—the Ars Goetia, Ars Theurgia-Goetia, Ars Paulina, Ars Almadel, and Ars Notoria.[1] Ars Goetia[edit] The most obvious source for the Ars Goetia is Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum in his De praestigiis daemonum. Weyer's Officium Spirituum, which is likely related to a 1583 manuscript titled The Office of Spirits,[6] appears to have ultimately been an elaboration on a 15th-century manuscript titled Le Livre des Esperitz (30 of the 47 spirits are nearly identical to spirits in the Ars Goetia).[2][4] In a slightly later copy made by Thomas Rudd (1583? This portion of the work was later translated by S. The Seventy-Two Demons[edit] Ars Theurgia Goetia[edit] Ars Paulina[edit] Ars Almadel[edit] Ars Notoria[edit] Notes[edit]

The Mystery of the Devil’s Bible There is something about ancient books and texts that holds a certain sense of mystery and allure. To hold something that was once handled by ancient hands long ago brings with it a fascination about the past, and the enigmatic knowledge held within the worn, dusty pages beckons from across the vast field of time separating us from the past. Ancient books are just naturally mysterious, often inscrutable, and sometimes spooky. Surely one of the weirdest and most bizarre books from the ancient era is the one known as the The Codex Gigas, a text dating from the 13th century AD that is also known as the Giant Book, or more ominously as The Devil’s Bible. The Devil’s Bible The first thing that impresses upon seeing the Devil’s Bible is the sheer size of it. The Devil illustration within the Codex Gigas The contents of the text hold many enigmas. Also unknown is the identity of the scribe or indeed the reason why they took on such a monumental undertaking. The Codex Gigas The Codex Gigas in 1909

The Satanic Rituals The Satanic Rituals is a book by Anton Szandor LaVey published in 1972 as a companion volume to The Satanic Bible. It is a collection of nine rituals with an introductory essay to each. The Satanic Rituals includes the child baptism ritual used by Anton LaVey at the first publicly recorded Satanic baptism in history for his youngest daughter Zeena (in The Satanic Rituals, LaVey dedicates the ceremony to Zeena). The child Satanic Baptism garnered world-wide publicity and was first recorded and released, with other rituals, in the vinyl LP The Satanic Mass, originally released on LaVey's own label, Murgenstrumm, 1968.[1][2][3][4] It was published by Avon Books as a 224-page paperback. It has also been published in hard-cover (by Buccaneer Books, 1991), and with a textbook binding (by Universe Books, 1978).

Leviathan Leviathan (/lɪˈvaɪ.əθən/; Hebrew: לִוְיָתָן, Modern: Livyatan, Tiberian: Liwyāṯān) is a creature with the form of a sea monster from Jewish belief, referenced in the Hebrew Bible in the Book of Job, Psalms, the Book of Isaiah, and the Book of Amos. The Leviathan of the Book of Job is a reflection of the older Canaanite Lotan, a primeval monster defeated by the god Hadad. Parallels to the role of Mesopotamian Tiamat defeated by Marduk have long been drawn in comparative mythology, as have been wider comparisons to dragon and world serpent narratives such as Indra slaying Vrtra or Thor slaying Jörmungandr,[1] but Leviathan already figures in the Hebrew Bible as a metaphor for a powerful enemy, notably Babylon (Isaiah 27:1), and some scholars have pragmatically interpreted it as referring to large aquatic creatures, such as the crocodile.[2] The word later came to be used as a term for "great whale" as well as of sea monsters in general.
