Esoterismo: La Goetia
The Lesser Key of Solomon , also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis [note 1] or Lemegeton , is an anonymous grimoire or spell book on demonology. It was compiled in the midth century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older.
Goetia is unfortunate, by the commerces of unclean spirits made up of the rites of wicked curiosities, unawful charms, and deprecations, and is abandoned and execrated by all laws. Weyer does not cite, and is unaware of, any other books in the Lemegeton , indicating that the Lemegeton was derived from his work, not the other way around.
The omission of Pruflas, a mistake that also occurs in an edition of Pseudomonarchia Daemonum cited in Reginald Scot 's The Discoverie of Witchcraft , indicates that the Ars Goetia could not have been compiled before Indeed, it appears that the Ars Goetia is more dependent upon Scot's translation of Weyer than on Weyer's work in itself.
Weyer's Officium Spirituum , which is likely related to a manuscript titled The Office of Spirits ,  appears to have ultimately been an elaboration on a 15th-century manuscript titled Le Livre des Esprits 30 of the 47 spirits are nearly identical to spirits in the Ars Goetia.
In a slightly later copy made by Thomas Rudd ? Rudd may have derived his copy of Liber Malorum Spirituum from a now-lost work by Johannes Trithemius ,  who taught Agrippa, who in turn taught Weyer. Crowley added some additional invocations previously unrelated to the original work including some evocations in the Enochian language , as well as essays describing the rituals as psychological exploration instead of demon summoning.
The demons' names given below are taken from the Ars Goetia , which differs in terms of number and ranking from the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum of Weyer. As a result of multiple translations, there are multiple spellings for some of the names, which are given in the articles concerning them.
A footnote in one variant edition instead lists them as Oriens or Uriens, Paymon or Paymonia, Ariton or Egyn, and Amaymon or Amaimon, alternatively known as Samael, Azazel, Azael, and Mahazael purportedly their preferred rabbinic names. Samael , Azazel, Azael, and Mahazuel. The Ars Theurgia Goetia mostly derives from Trithemius's Steganographia , though the seals and order for the spirits are different due to corrupted transmission via manuscript. Most of the spirits summoned are tied to points on a compass, four Emperors are tied to the cardinal points Carnesiel in the East, Amenadiel in the West, Demoriel in the North and Caspiel in the South , and sixteen Dukes are tied to cardinal points, inter-cardinal points, and additional directions between those.
There are an additional eleven Wandering Princes, totalling thirty-one spirit leaders who each rule several to a few dozen spirits. Derived from book three of Trithemius's Steganographia and from portions of the Heptameron , but purportedly delivered by Paul the Apostle instead of as claimed by Trithemius Raziel. Elements from The Magical Calendar , astrological seals by Robert Turner's translation of Paracelsus 's Archidoxes of Magic , and repeated mentions of guns and the year indicate that this portion was written in the later half of the seventeenth century.
The Ars Paulina is in turn divided into two books, the first detailing twenty-four angels aligned with the twenty-four hours of the day, the second derived more from the Heptameron detailing the spirits of the degrees of the zodiac.
Mentioned by Trithemius and Weyer, the latter of whom claimed an Arabic origin for the work. A 15th-century copy is attested to by Robert H. Turner, and Hebrew copies were discovered in the 20th century. The Ars Almadel instructs the magician on how to create a wax tablet with specific designs intended to contact angels via scrying. The oldest known portion of the Lemegeton , the Ars Notoria or Notory Art was first mentioned by Michael Scot in and thus was written earlier.
The Ars Notoria contains a series of prayers related to those in The Sworn Book of Honorius intended to grant eidetic memory and instantaneous learning to the magician.
Some copies and editions of the Lemegeton omit this work entirely;   A.
Waite ignores it completely when describing the Lemegeton. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
