Description

For the first time, the three great magical works of King Solomon are together in one volume. The Greater and Lesser Keys give a practical guide to the operation of his magic. The testament gives a historical account of its use by Solomon himself.

The Key of Solomon the King was originally researched and translated by S.L. MacGregor Mathers from ancient manuscripts in the British museums. Included by Mathers is the Order of the Pentacles of Solomon, the Ancient Fragment of the Key of Solomon, The Qabalistic Invocation of Solomon, and 15 plates full of figures, seals and charts, as well as the original text giving detailed instruction for spells and invocations.

The work is traditionally divided into two books detailing the Key of King Solomon. Book One explains the operation of conjurations, curses, spells and other magical works. Book Two instructs the practitioner on the proper attire, purification rituals and other means of obtaining the goals of the Goetia. Between these two books is the list of plates that contain numerous illustrations and secret seals of Solomon, including the Mystical Seal of Solomon, the Pentacles of Solomon, and the Mystical Alphabet, which impart the mechanisms and requirements for the invocation of spirits and demons.

The Lesser Key of Solomon, or the Clavicula Salomonis Regis, or Lemegeton, is a compilation of materials and writings from ancient sources making up a text book of magic or "grimoire." Portions of this book can be traced back to the mid-16th to 17th centuries, when occult researchers such as Cornelius Agrippa and Johannes Trithemisus assembled what they discovered during their investigations into their own great works.

As a modern grimoire, the Lesser Key of Solomon has seen several editions with various authors and editors taking liberty to edit and translate the ancient writings and source material. In 1898, Arthur Edward Waite published his The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts, which contained large portions of the Lemegeton. He was followed by Mathers and Crowley in 1904 who published The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon.

In the preface to this edition, it is explained that a "Secret Chief" of the Rosicrucian Order directed the completion of the book. The original editor was a G. H. Fra. D.D.C.F. who translated ancient texts from French, Hebrew, and Latin, but was unable to complete his labors because of the martial assaults of the Four Great Princes. Crowley was then asked to step in and finish what the previous author had begun.

The Testament of Solomon is a pseudepigraphical work attributed to King Solomon the Wise of the Old Testament. Written in the first-person narrative, the book tells the story of the creation of the magical ring of King Solomon and how Solomon''s ring was used to bind and control demons, including Beelzebub. In this book of King Solomon, the discourses between the King and the various spirits are told, and the story shows how Solomon uses his wisdom to withstand the demons'' tricks and guile and enlist their aid in the building of his temple.

The manuscripts from which this work was discovered date from the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. All were written in Greek. This dating makes most experts believe that the work is medieval. But some scholars, including D.C. Duling, argue that it is likely that the work comes from the 5th or 6th centuries.

I was hoping summoning demons would be something I could do as a past time. It turns out that the process is complicated and requires some materials that may be difficult to acquire. You also have to summon certain entities at specific astronomical times with complex diagrams and using an ancient foreign language. This is no good for lazy individuals. I wonder if there''s a "Summon Demons for Dummies" version?

Saw the movie the Nun. Valak the demon whom the nun is based off is a demon found in the lesser keys of Salomon. The book feels nice in your hands. The book gave me nightmares. Got rid of book. Great deal on a book to fill your head with demons. Fun experience.

This book is life changing. The testament of Solomon alone is worth everything. The greater and lesser keys are very demonic and I haven’t read them. This should have been in the Bible !!!!!

The testament starts with the chief archictect of the 1st temple having a demon over him. The demon stole half of his food, wages, and life. The archangel Michael gave King Solomon a ring physically to resolve the issue after he prayed intensely.

Solomon gave the ring to the chief architect after doubling his food and salary. The chief archictect threw the ring at the demon Ornias and from that moment summoned all the chief demons. Solomon built the first temple with the demons. You would be wise to see that Poseidon, Medusa, Zeus, Kronos, the devil and more and all of the astrology demons are part of this. They are named and summoned and forced to expose the archangels over them and cures. The 36 minor demons are in 10 degree decans of each astrological symbol .

The greater 36 demons are another story. You need to piece together these are the children of the fallen angels and humans before the Noah’s flood. They are bound to this world in spirit. Look at the harsh argument that Time/Kronos/Saturn gave King Solomon!!

They are demons from the ancient world

doesn''t seem inherently "evil" however your definition may be. Equal amounts of information of exorcisms of evil entities and invocations of such entities. Has been entirely educational for me. I bought this to learn about the mythological areas of angels and demons and religion alike and was not disappointed. Worth it for me.

It is a good price, and well made. The artwork is obviously bitmap scans of older and better books, however, so pixelation is obvious and everpresent throughout. There are smaller, cheaper, black-bound volumes available of each individual book with hand-redrawn artwork that looks much better (though those books have their flaws as well). The content is the same in all of these lapsed-copyright reproductions so it really comes down to which one you think looks good on your shelf, and this one is not bad at all.

I do feel as if it takes a little long to get to the meat and potatoes of the thing but I''d recommend buying. Also, though the scanned photos in the book aren''t of the best qaullity, you can still read and see them just fine.

This book offers incantations to the advanced student of magic that already read other works or have a genuine master to guide you. Do not attempt to use these symbols without knowing the implications of it as it can be harmful to you and to the ones around you. These incantations can invoke inferior spirits and if you''re not properly protected they can obsess and control you in ways you cannot conceive. Please be careful. Is possible read the 3 books of Abramelin the mage to better understand the faults of Solomon and how to avoid them. Do not think this is just a normal book. Arrogance and ignorance can harm you.
