Mystics of the Renaissance: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is one of those works Rudolf Steiner wrote which primarily compiles and analyzes and draws from secondary sources; namely, as the title suggests, some of the mystic minds of the Renaissance, although it includes, also, Medieval minds and some contemporary work by Eckhart and others. It goes from Paracelsus and Agrippa through Boehme and many others.

The statements made here vary both from those sources and Steiner; it speaks of the nature of being, the nature of divinity, the relationship between man and the deity or deities he worships, and meanders from those into sub-topics as well. It is quite well written and interesting as Steiners’ works tend to be. As a pointless but meaningless aside the initial source file was around 300 pages in length, which goes to show you the odd format and line spacing used in the early 20th century.

120 pages.

The Lesser Key of Solomon: Now Available!

 

 CLICK TO PURCHASE

At long last it is time for the final literary release of 2018 and one of the most important grimoires ever concocted. Standing at 259 pages, it’s also full length.

The Lesser Key of Solomon is actually a compilation of other works from the same era- the initial variant compiled by none other than Mathers and Crowley themselves contained five works- the Ars Goetia, Theurgia Goetia, Ars Paulina, Almadel, and the Ars Notoria (shortened to Nova in some variants.) The material is variable, beginning with the most demonic and then progressing through natural spirits, airy spirits, the angelic, and then the strictly divine.

Since the Notoria is actually centuries earlier I have omitted it in this edition. It has been re-edited with care and completely re-illustrated. I am quite happy with the final appearance. One of the most important occult compilations finally available here, reworked entirely, and for a cost significantly lower than the apparent competitors (please note that three of the Amazon titles under the moniker “Lesser Key” only include the Goetia, and are not complete works.)
