Published by Penguin



This rich, fascinating anthology of western magical tradition stretches from its roots in the wizardry of the Old Testament and the rituals of the ancient world, through writers such as Thomas Aquinas, John Milton, John Dee and Mathew Hopkins, and up to the tangles, arcane beginnings of the scientific revolution.

Arranged historically, with commentary, this book includes incantations, charms, curses, Golems, demons and witches, as well as astrology, divination and alchemy, with some ancient and medieval works which were once viewed as too dangerous to even open.
