An excellent translation of ancient texts on the subject, but it's a lot more than that. It's a glimpse into the minds of the everyday people of the times and what made them turn, what made them stop, what made them look over their shoulders.(Courier-Gazette)

This book covers it all, Magic, Witchcraft,Necromancy,Sorcery, Astrology,Spirit Possesion and Mastery,Divination. And none of it is whitewashed or dumbed down to make it appeal to the "white light" twits who read Scott Cunningham.Or the crazed feminists who read Starhawk and Z Budapest and believe witchcraft is "womyn empowerment".In fact, this book makes all that "New Age" "Neopagan" "White Light" "Chakra Aligning" crap look like the foolishness that it truly is.If you are interested in recovering the true wisdom of the ancients and a true revival of Paganism, and not the modernized feel good redacted version of "Wicca","Neopaganism" and "Ceremonial Magic",if you are interested in the occult and magic, from a traditionalist, archaic viewpoint, get this book. You will thank yourself. It is a gift that keeps on giving. This book made a lot of things come into focus for me.
