About this product
- DescriptionThis is a source work of mediaeval magic that gives complete sets of zodiacal lames, characters and planetary sigils, with full details for their manufacture and consecration, often omitted by later writers. Paracelsus is essentially concerned with the practical applications of magic, especially with regard to healing, rather than the extravagant fantasies of theorists. His sections on alchemy include details of the planetary spirits, the conjuncture of the male and female principles, and each step on the path to the Tincture - one of the most complete descriptions in the whole Hermetic can. Paracelsus outlines techniques for the exorcism of evil spirits, conjuration and counteracting witchcraft. Stephen Skinner's introduction provides a brief biography of Paracelsus and explains the influence of his work on the Western Mystery Tradition.
- Author BiographyParacelsus (Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim), 1493-1541, was a Swiss physician who, also, gained magical knowledge from Johannes Trithemius, Agrippa's teacher and was acquainted with the famous alchemist, Solomon Trimosin (suthor of Splendor Solis). In his use of herbal remedies and principle of 'signatures', he could easily be credited as one of the fathers of modern pharmacology. His work had a major influence on John Dee, Francis Barrett, A E Waite and many others.
