Testament of Cyprian The Mage Vol 1
Jake Stratton-Kent concludes his acclaimed Encyclopaedia Goetica with the two volume The Testament of Cyprian the Mage, an ambitious and far-seeing work adressing two ends of the magical spectrum: the Testament of Solomon and a version of the Iberian Book of Saint Cyprian. In doing so, key aspects of magical practice are revealed.
The work draws upon these texts to create a clear understandin of the practice of grimoire magic, not as a discrete or degenerate subset of ceremonial magic, but one which is integrated with folk magic and witchecraft. In particular we discover a shared dramatis personae, the infernal pact, and a common terrain of Wild Hunr and Sabbat.
