Strategies in Practical Magick

This book is about real magick, effecting real change, in a real world. There are some books on magick that teach it purely as spiritual advancement. There are others that teach it as a form of psychological self-help that effects only inner change. While magick can and should be both of these, it is something more. The Sorcerer's Secrets is about success in practical magick; it is a book that aims at change in both the outer and inner worlds. Beyond a mere spell book or training course, The Sorcerer's Secrets is a field manual on successful sorcery written by a professional sorcerer. The first part of the book lays out the qualities, concepts, and exercises necessary to attempt practical magick. The second part presents clear strategies for tackling almost any type of issue with sorcery. In this book you will learn how to: Attack problems from multiple angles, not just by casting a spell. Blend mundane and magickal action to ensure success. Figure out whether what you are doing is working. Fix it if it isn't. Go beyond readings, into magickal intelligence-gathering. Influence the minds of other people. Work most effectively on behalf of others. The Sorcerer's Secrets will help rescue the art of Magick from those who have ignored, downplayed, or just outright denied the existence of practical sorcery in favor of arcane titles, intangible results, and fantasy attainments.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is John Richardson's vivid memoir of the time he spent living with and learning from the deeply knowledgeable and temperamental art collector, Douglas Cooper. For ten years the two entertained a circle of friends that included Jean Cocteau, W. H. Auden, Tennessee Williams, and, most intriguingly, Pablo Picasso. Compulsively readable and beautifully illustrated, this book is both a triple portrait of the author, Cooper, and Picasso, and a revealing look at a crucial artistic period.

Faith and Fraud in Tudor England

An earl's son, plotting murder by witchcraft; conjuring spirits to find buried treasure; a stolen coat embroidered with pure silver; crooked gaming-houses and brothels; a terrifying new disease, and the self-trained surgeon who claims he can treat it. This is the world of Gregory Wisdom, a physician, magician, and consummate con-man at work in sixteenth-century London. In this book, Alec Ryrie uses previously unknown documents to reconstruct this extraordinary man's career. The journey takes us through the cut-throat business of early modern medicine, down to Tudor London's gangland of fraud and organized crime; from the world of Renaissance magi and Kabbalistic conjurers to street-corner wizards; and into the chaotic, exhilarating religious upheavals of the Reformation. On the way, we learn how Tudor England's dignified public face and its rapacious underworld were intimately connected to each other. Gregory Wisdom's career is an object lesson in how to conjure up wealth and respectability from nothing in a turbulent age. And it provides a unique glimpse into a world intoxicated with new ideas, where it was impossible to know quite what to believe - or who to trust.

The Oxford Handbook of Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe and Colonial America

Author: Brian P. Levack

Publisher: OUP Oxford

ISBN: 0191648841

Category: History

The essays in this Handbook, written by leading scholars working in the rapidly developing field of witchcraft studies, explore the historical literature regarding witch beliefs and witch trials in Europe and colonial America between the early fifteenth and early eighteenth centuries. During these years witches were thought to be evil people who used magical power to inflict physical harm or misfortune on their neighbours. Witches were also believed to have made pacts with the devil and sometimes to have worshipped him at nocturnal assemblies known as sabbaths. These beliefs provided the basis for defining witchcraft as a secular and ecclesiastical crime and prosecuting tens of thousands of women and men for this offence. The trials resulted in as many as fifty thousand executions. These essays study the rise and fall of witchcraft prosecutions in the various kingdoms and territories of Europe and in English, Spanish, and Portuguese colonies in the Americas. They also relate these prosecutions to the Catholic and Protestant reformations, the introduction of new forms of criminal procedure, medical and scientific thought, the process of state-building, profound social and economic change, early modern patterns of gender relations, and the wave of demonic possessions that occurred in Europe at the same time. The essays survey the current state of knowledge in the field, explore the academic controversies that have arisen regarding witch beliefs and witch trials, propose new ways of studying the subject, and identify areas for future research.

Thor, der nordische Donnergott, ist nicht nur ein Aufschneider und Rüpel, sondern viel schlimmer. Er hat viele Leben vernichtet und unzählige Unschuldige auf dem Gewissen. Atticus O'Sullivan, der letzte der Druiden, und sein Anwalt Leif unternehmen alles, um diesen nordischen Albtraum ein für alle Mal loszuwerden. Über 2.000 Jahre hat eine Überlebensstrategie für Atticus funktioniert: Halt dich fern von Thor! Aber die Dinge heizen sich auf in seiner neuen Heimat Tempe, Arizona. Russische Dämonenjäger, die sich selbst die "Hämmer Gottes" nennen, drehen komplett durch und terrorisieren die Gegend. Doch wer steckt dahinter? Trotz vielfacher Warnung reisen Atticus und Leif zur nordischen Welt Asgard, wo sie sich mit einem Werwolf, einem Zauberer und einer Armee von Eisriesen verbünden. Ein epischer Kampf gegen boshafte Walküren, zornige Götter und – vor allem – gegen den hammerschwingenden Donner-Fiesling selbst beginnt.

„Zu den Waffen, Musketiere! Die Drachen kommen!“ Packende Duelle, rasante Verfolgungsjagden über die Dächer von Paris, düstere Intrigen und magische Zeremonien – „Drachenklingen“ lässt keine Leserwünsche offen. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1633. Ein dunkler Geheimbund – „Die schwarze Kralle“ – unterwandert die europäischen Königshäuser. Auch in Frankreich steht die Errichtung einer „Krallen“-Loge kurz bevor. Zwar leistet Kardinal Richelieu, der einflussreichste Mann am Hof von Louis XIII., erbitterten Widerstand, doch seine Bemühungen scheinen zwecklos. Denn die Mitglieder der „Schwarzen Kralle“ sind keine gewöhnlichen Menschen – es sind die Nachfahren eines uralten Drachengeschlechts. Nun gibt es nur noch eine Hoffnung: Richelieus Spezialtruppe „Die Klingen des Kardinals“, furchtlose Musketiere, die schon so manches Abenteuer überstanden haben. Doch dieses könnte ihr letztes sein ... Ein unvergessliches Abenteuer für alle Altersgruppen
