Description

The Picatrix is a complete guide to astrological magic including the instructions for hundreds of astrological talismans, ritual and miscellaneous magical information. No other work exerted such a wide influence on medieval and Renaissance astrological magic and it was never published until the 20th century, circulating only in manuscript form. This book includes a Latin facsimile version of Picatrix plus 77 pages of selected English translations edited with a commentary by Christopher Warnock, Esq., the leading traditional astrological magician.

Here is the table of contents for the translation and commentary:

  • Arabic Picatrix, Book I Chapters 1-4 & commentary
  • The Forms of the Planets Book III, Chapter 3
  • Selected Planetary Talisman Translations Book II, Chapter 10
  • Adocentyn, the Talismanic City Book IV, Chapter 3 & commentary
  • House based talismans Book I, Chapter 5 commentary
  • Ritual Preparations Book III, chapter 7 & commentary
  • Arabic Picatrix Planetary Invocations Book III, Chapter 8 & commentary
  • Operation of Jupiter Book III, Chapter 9 The Jovial Feast & commentary
  • Invocation of Perfect Nature Book III Chapter 6 Translated by Nigel Jackson & commentary

    The facsimile version of the Latin Picatrix, starting on page 79 of the book, after the selected English translations and commentary is the famed English astrologer William Lilly's copy, British Library Sloane manuscript collection number 3679. While this manuscript is fairly easy to read, it is, however, in Latin and is not an English translation.

    A key text of Arabic astrological magic in Latin, with 77 pages of selected English translations and commentary and a facsimile version of the Latin Picatrix, 150 pages, total 233 pages, 8.5 x 11 inch, paperback.

    Clemens, Raymond
    Yale University Press

    Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome.

    Three Hands Press

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation.
