The Red Church or the Art of Pennsylvania German Braucherei: The Traditional Blessed Healing Art ... (Used)
by Bilardi, C R
Publisher: Pendraig Publishing
Book ID: 9780982031858, 0982031858
A comprehensive guide to the history, theory and practice of Pow Wow, this book draws upon historical documentation, traditional methods, and a life of personal experience.
Pow Wow, or Braucherei, is a system of folk magic that has its roots in Christian and Pre-Christian Germany, but its character is wholy American - the quintessential American magical system. Drawing on quotes from the Bible, qabalistic principles and old gromoires, it is empowered by the Holy Trinity, and most practitioners consider themselves to be Christian, much like the Cunning Folk of England.
"The Red Church: The Art of Pennsylvania German Braucherei is the finest book on German magic to be seen in decades. Comprehensive in its historical, philosophical and cultural roots, The Red Church is a book that will be appreciated by academics and modern practitioners of not just folk and ceremonial magic alike, but also energetic and faith healing, symbolism, and cultural psychology. Extensively researched and documented, no one interested in the survival of Medieval and Renaissance magic into the modern era should be without a copy of it within easy reach." - Mark Stavish, Director of Studies, Institute for Hermetic Studies, author of The Path of Alchemy, Freemasonry - Rituals, Symbols and History of the Secret Society, and Between the Gates: Lucid Dreaming, Astral Projection and the Body of Light

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
