Centuries ago in Eastern Europe the idea of a vampire wasnt viewed as a character from a story or shrugged off with a laugh. The fact is the vampire was widely known as a very real entity and was not to be taken lightly. There were many ways for a human being to become a vampire and the most notorious of these methods was through the practice of witchcraft. Many of the more sinister families of the era had sacred rites and rituals just for this purpose. Thoe almost non-exsistent today I couldnt convince myself to give up my quest to find one of these rare sacred rites or the holy grail of occult and vampire history. I moved to Eastern Europe (the home of my ancestors) to begin my search and after two years there I became familiar with an occult family who held a very interesting heirloom. A Book of Shadows dating from the early 1300s. "The Fire Rite", (translated) is a very strange but utterly amazing ritual that I was able to translate and copy from the Book of Shadows and its sole purpose from the date it was written, in 1367, is to 'transform' the magician into a vampire. As an occult expert I can warn that the ritual itself is a bizzare and jaw dropping piece of history and is not to be taken lightly. "The Fire Rite", contained in this booklet, utilizes blood and elemental magick to 'transform' the magician. This booklet also compares the ritual to modern day vampirism and witchcraft and contains a brief overview of slavic vampire history and lore. A must have for anyone interested in the vampire, the history of the vampire, or the occult.
