The Ritual of Transcendental Magic

The Ritual of Transcendental Magic

This is the complete English version of Eliphas Levi's treatise on ritual magic. This work is in two parts: in the first one, called "The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic", we establish the kabalistic and magical doctrine in its entirety; this here, the second part, is consecrated to the cultus, that is, to Ceremonial Magic. The one is that which the ancient sages termed the Clavicle, the other that which people on the country-side still call the Grimoire. The numbers and subjects of the chapters which correspond in both parts, are in no sense arbitrary, and are all indicated in the great universal key, of which we give for the first time a complete and adequate explanation. Let this work now go its way where it will and become what Providence determines; it is finished, and we believe it to be enduring, because it is strong, like all that is reasonable and conscientious. Contents: Introduction Chapter I - Preparations Chapter Ii - Magical Equilibrium Chapter Iii - The Triangle Of Pantacles Chapter Iv - The Conjuration Of The Four Chapter V - The Blazing Pentagram Chapter Vi - The Medium And Mediator Chapter Vii - The Septenary Of Talismans Chapter Viii - Warning To The Imprudent Chapter Ix - The Ceremonial Of Initiates Chapter X - The Key Of Occultism Chapter Xi - The Triple Chain Chapter Xii - The Great Work Chapter Xiii - Necromancy Chapter Xiv - Transmutations Chapter Xv - The Sabbath Of The Sorcerers Chapter Xvi - Witchcraft And Spells Chapter Xvii - The Writing Of The Stars Chapter Xviii - Philtres And Magnetism Chapter Xix - The Mastery Of The Sun Chapter Xx - The Thaumaturge Chapter Xxi - The Science Of The Prophets Chapter Xxii - The Book Of Hermes
