Veneficium: Magic, Witchcraft and the Poison Path (Deluxe Edition, limited to 81 copies) (Used)
by Schulke, Daniel A.
Publisher: Three Hands Press
Book ID: THPVENEDLX, THPVENEDLX
In many esoteric traditions, there exists an iconic or linguistic corollary between the concepts of ‘poisoner’ and ‘sorcerer’, suggesting a sinistral magical kinship. Indeed, the use of plant, animal and mineral toxins is a strand of magic originating in remotest antiquity and reaching the present day. Beyond its mundane function as an agent of corporeal harm, poisons have also served as gateways of religious ecstasy, occult knowledge, and sensorial aberration, as well as the basis of cures. Allied with Samael, the Edenic serpent of first transgression whose Hebrew name in some translations is ‘Venom of God’, this facet of magic wends through the rites of ancient Sumer and Egypt, penetrating European Necromancy, Alchemy, the arcane the rites of the Witches’ Sabbath, and modern-day folk magic. This persistent thread, here referred to as the ‘Cult of the Green Snake’, finds diverse manifestations in the varied traditions it makes home.
Veneficium concerns the intersection of magic and poison. Of particular note to this study are the herbs of the so-called ‘Devil’s Garden’, which bear relation to the allied witchcraft concepts of the Graal of Midnight, the Witches’ Supper, and the Unguentum Sabbati, the flying ointment of the witches which has exerted fascination over scholar, historians, and practitioners alike. Beyond consideration of the toxicological dimensions of magical power, the concurrent thread of astral and philosophical poisons are also examined, and their resonance and dissonance with magical practice explored. The work will be of interest to students of magic, witchcraft, alchemy, botanical folklore, medicine, and occult pharmacology.
Veneficium is issued in two editions:
Standard hardcover edition with dust jacket, limited to 1,250 copies.
Deluxe edition. The work is strictly limited to 81 copies bound in black shantung and quarter snake, with marbled endsheets and felt-lined slipcase, and signed by the Author.
The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
Honorius of Thebes
Ibis Press / Nicolas-Hayes
As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
