A Grand Grimoire consists of a collection of medieval manuscripts used in High Magic and the Black Arts to conjure Celestial, Olympic, and Angelic beings. It provides formulae together with instruction for the creation of magical tools, sigils, and symbols of the Deity the Magician wishes to work with.
Many Grimoires can seem very confusing and therefore useless to the student, but for the experienced Magician, they are a great asset and may provide a unique path to spiritual enlightenment.
Grand Grimoire Content
- This book contains a collection of the following Magical Grimoires:
- Grimoirium Verum. Reputed to have been translated from the Hebrew by Plaingiere, a Dominucan Jesuit, and published by Alibeck the Egyptian in 1517. The book, like many others, claims a connection to Solomon, but many believe that it was really written in the 18th century. Author unknown. The work concentrates on rituals for the summoning of demons, and gives “Characters” for some of these demons and therefore has gained the reputation of being one of the most notorious Grimoires of Black Magic.
- The Grimoire of Honorius. The Grimoire of Honorius (Grimoire of Pope Honorius) was credited to Pope Honorius III, who succeeded Pope Innocent III in 1216. The Grimoire of Honorius is full of Christian benedictions and formulae for the control of the fallen angels and gaining their assistance in accomplishing certain magical requests. Translated from the old German of 1220.
- The Grimoire not only instructed priests in the arts of demonology but virtually ordered them to learn how to conjure and control demons, as part of their priestly duties. It therefore purportedly gave the sanction of the papal office for priests to the practice of ritual magic.
- The Grand Grimoire with The Great Clavicle of Solomon.
- The Secret Grimoire of Turiel. Translated from the Latin version of 1518, this famous Grimoire is well illustrated with the sigils, signs, and symbols of medieval magic. It came to light in 1927 after being sold to Marius Malchus in Spain by a defrocked priest and was then translated into English from the original. There is some opinion that the text may have been taken from an older magical manuscript, which one? Is not known. It is interesting to note that the Angel Turiel (Rock of God) is mentioned in the 1 Book of Enoch as one of the angels who fell from grace. The Grimoire gives the magician instructions on how to contact Turiel.
- The Grimoire of Armadel.
- These 500 pages are printed on French Aged Parchment paper and hardbound in antique brown and beige Italian leather. This magnificent volume resembles the look of an antique book that once stood on the main shelf in the wizard’s chamber and then was secretly passed down through generations of magicians. Without any doubt, it will connect the modern practitioner to the sacred world of magic where wizards and images of old still exist.
