Sacred Magic Of Abramelin The Mage

That in order to become an Adept, therefore, and dominate them; the greatest possible firmness of will, purity of soul and intent, and power of self-control is necessary. That this is only to be attained by self-abnegation on every plane.

The particular scheme or system of Magic advocated in the present work is to an extent "sui generis" but to an extent only. It is rather the manner of its application which makes it unique. In Magic, that is to say, the Science of the Control of the Secret Forces of Nature, there have always been two great schools, the one great in Good, the other in Evil the former the Magic of Light, the latter that of Darkness the former usually depending on the knowledge and invocation of the Angelic natures, the latter on the method of evocation of the Demonic races. Usually the former is termed White Magic, as opposed to the latter, or Black Magic. The invocation of Angelic Forces, then, is an idea common in works of Magic, as also are the Ceremonies of Pact with and submission to the Evil Spirits. The system, however, taught in the present work is based on the following conception: That the Good Spirits and Angelic Powers of Light are superior in Power to the Fallen Spirits of Darkness. That these latter as a punishment have been condemned to the service of the Initiates of the Magic of Light. (This Idea is to be found also in the Kôran; or, as it is frequently and perhaps more correctly written, "Qûr-an".) As a consequence of this doctrine, all ordinary material effects and phenomena are produced by the labour of the Evil Spirits under the command usually of the Good. That consequently whenever the Evil Demons can escape from the control of the Good, there is no evil that they will not work by way of vengeance. That therefore sooner than obey man, they will try to make him their servant, by inducing him to conclude Pacts and Agreements with them. That to further this project, they will use every means that offers to obsess him. That in order to become an Adept, therefore, and dominate them; the greatest possible firmness of will, purity of soul and intent, and power of self-control is necessary. That this is only to be attained by self-abnegation on every plane. That man, therefore, is the middle nature, and natural controller of the middle nature between the Angels and the Demons, and that therefore to each man is attached naturally both a Guardian Angel and a Malevolent Demon, and also certain Spirits that may become Familiars, so that with him it rests to give the victory unto the which he will. That, therefore, in order to control and make service of the Lower and Evil, the knowledge of the Higher and Good is requisite.

This remarkable grimoire was translated by S.L.M. Mathers from a 15th century French mauscript. This text has had a huge influence on modern ceremonial magic, and has been cited as a primary influence on Aleister Crowley. Abraham of Würzburg, a cabalist and scholar of magic, describes a quest for the secret teachings which culminated in Egypt, where he encountered the magician Abramelin, who taught him his system in detail. The procedure involves many months of purification, followed by the invocation of good and evil spirits to accomplish some very worldly goals, including acquisition of treasure and love, travel through the air and under water, and raising armies out of thin air. It also tells of raising the dead, transforming ones appearance, becoming invisible, and starting storms. The key to this is a set of remarkable magic squares, sigils consisting of mystical words which in most cases can be read in several directions. Of course, these diagrams are said to have no potency unless used in the appropriate ritual context by an initiate. Mathers analyzed these words in an extensive set of notes and gives possible derivations from Hebrew, Greek and other languages.

The Book of Abramelin tells the story of an Egyptian mage named Abramelin, or Abra-Melin, who taught a system of magic to Abraham of Worms, a German Jew presumed to have lived from c.1362 - c.1458. The system of magic from this book regained popularity in the 19th and 20th centuries due to the efforts of Mathers' translation, The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, its import within the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and later within the mystical system of Thelema. Georg Dehn attributed authorship of The Book of Abramelin to Rabbi Yaakov Moelin, a German Jewish Talmudist. This identification has since been disputed.

Abramelin was an Egyptian mage who lived in the 1300s - to this day, the system of magic described in his writings remains popular and influential in occultist circles. The teachings were dispensed by Abramelin to a man named Abraham, a Jewish traveler and enthusiast of Egypt who lived in town of Worms in Germany. Abraham in turn authored this work for his son, inserting pieces of autobiography, relating how he traversed vast distances across Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. His discovery of Abramelin, who lived in a secluded hilltop dwelling, is explained, with the mage's life philosophy, rituals and spells then described. It emerges that Abramelin is a staunch ascetic, who decries the evils entailed in acquiring riches and material possessions. Obscure for centuries, it was only when S. L. MacGregor Mathers rediscovered and translated this grimoire of magical lore to English that it returned to the public eye. It became a popularly consulted text, with groups such as the Hermetic Order and famous occultists such as Aleister Crowley making use of the abundance of wisdom herein. This edition includes the charts appended by Mathers, as well as his lengthy introduction and explanations of the ancient scripts.

The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage - translated into English by Occultist S. L. Mac Gregor Mathers from a French document in 1897. Whilst the text purports to be of 15th century origin, the earliest known versions of the manuscript, which are in German, date to the 17th and 18th centuries. The text tells the story of how 'Abraham of Worms' encountered an Egyptian mage named Abramelin, from whom Abraham received the secrets of a powerful Kabbalistic magical system. It is this system and its secrets we read of as Abraham passes his knowledge to his son Lamech. The system revealed within the text consists of lengthy and elaborate rites and preparatory practices, in order to gain the 'knowledge and conversation' of one's 'guardian angel' via whom magical secrets will be revealed unto the practitioner. Via evocations of the twelve Kings and Dukes of Hell, the practitioner will obtain a number of familiar spirits of aid to the operative magic encountered within the 'third book' of this text. As head of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn at the time, Mathers' The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage became very import and influential to the pactices of the order, via which it was to have a profound influence upon the practices of Aleister Crowley.

The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage-originally published in 1900, translated by Samuel Mathers from a 15th-century French document-was purportedly written by Abraham for his son Lamech. Within this volume are three books. The first book is Abraham's autobiography in which he speaks to his son. The second book is an explanation of the purification rituals necessary to bring the magician's personal demon under his control. And the third book details what feats can be accomplished once the practitioner is able to use a form of magic controlled and directed through sigils of magic words written on a grid. Anyone with an interest in the occult will find this an interesting, though perhaps impractical, guide for exploring mystic arts.

The Holy Magic

The magic described in the book was to find new life in the 19th and 20th centuries within the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and later within the mystical system of Thelema, established in 1904 by Aleister Crowley.

From the intro:"This "Library of the Arsenal," as it is now called, was founded as a private collection by Antoine René Voyer D'Argenson, Marquis de Paulny; and was first opened to the public on the 9th Floréal, in the fifth year of the French Republic (that is to say, on 28th April, 1797), or just a century ago. This Marquis de Paulny was born in the year 1722, died in 1787, and was successively Minister of War, and Ambassador to Switzerland, to Poland, and to the Venetian Republic. His later years were devoted to the formation of this Library, said to be one of the richest private collections known. It was acquired in 1785 by the Comte D'Artois, and to-day belongs to the State. It is situated on the right bank of the Seine, in the Rue de Sully, near the river, and not far from the Place de la Bastille, and is known as the "Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal". In round numbers it now possesses 700,000 printed books, and about 8000 manuscripts, many of them being of considerable value.Among the latter is this Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin, as delivered by Abraham the Jew unto his son Lamech; which I now give to the public in printed form for the first time."
