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.

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

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.

In MEER DER SCHILDE (Buch #10 im Ring der Zauberei) bringt Gwendolyn ihr Kind mit Thorgrin begleitet von mächtigen Omen auf die Welt. Mit der Geburt ihres Sohnes ändert sich das Leben von Gwendolyn und Thorgrin, und auch das Schicksal des Rings für immer. Thor soll die Legion wieder aufbauen. Er vertieft sein Training mit Argon und erhält eine Ehre, die er sich nie erträumt hätte, als er in die Silver eingeführt und ein Ritter wird. Bevor er den Ring verlässt, um seine Mutter zu finden, bereitet sich Thor für seine Hochzeit mit Gwendolyn vor. Doch es geschehen Dinge, die der Hochzeit in die Quere kommen könnten. Gwendolyn ist sichtlich mitgenommen von der Geburt ihres Sohnes, von der bevorstehenden Abreise ihres Gemahls und vom Tod ihrer Mutter. Der Ring versammelt sich zur königlichen Beisetzung, was die zerstrittenen Schwestern Luanda und Gwendolyn zu ihrer letzten Auseinandersetzung zusammenbringt, die schlimme Folgen haben wird. Argons Prophezeiungen klingen in Gwendolyns Ohren; sie fühlt, wie Gefahr für den Ring aufzieht, und treibt ihren Plan, ihr gesamtes Volk vor der Katastrophe zu retten, voran. Erec erhält Nachricht von der Krankheit seines Vaters und wird zurück nach Hause auf die Südlichen Inseln gerufen; Alistair begleitet ihn auf seiner Reise während ihre Hochzeitsvorbereitungen laufen. Kendrick sucht seine lange verlorengeglaubte Mutter und ist schockiert darüber, wen er findet. Conven kehrt nach Hause zurück, findet die Dinge nicht so vor, wie er sie erwartet hatte und fällt in noch tiefere Trauer. Steffen begegnet unerwartet seiner Liebe während Sandara Kendrick damit überrascht, dass sie den Ring verlassen und in ihre Heimat im Empire zurückkehren möchte. Reece verliebt sich in seine Cousine und als Tirus Söhne dies herausfinden, setzten sie einen üblen Verrat in Gang. Eine Tragödie von Missverständnissen folgt, und ein Krieg mit den Oberen Inseln droht ob Reeces entflammter Leidenschaft auszubrechen. Die Lage auf der McCloud'schen Seite der Highlands, wo die Gefahr eines Bürgerkriegs in der Luft liegt, ist genauso unstabil. Im Empire entdeckt Romulus eine neue Form der Magie, die den Schild vielleicht für immer zerstören kann. Er schmiedet einen Handel mit der dunklen Seite und ausgestattet mit einer Macht, die nicht einmal Argon aufhalten kann, initiiert Romulus einen sicheren Weg, den Ring zu zerstören. Mit ihrem ausgeklügelten Aufbau der Welten und Charaktere ist der MEER DER SCHILDE eine epische Geschichte von Freunden und Liebhabern, von Rivalen und Gefolgsleuten, von Rittern und Drachen, von Intrigen und politischen Machenschaften, vom Erwachsenwerden, von gebrochenen Herzen, Täuschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat. Es ist eine Geschichte von Ehre und Mut, von Schicksal und Bestimmung und von Zauberei. Es ist eine Fantasie, die uns in eine Welt bringt, die wir nie vergessen werden, und die für alle Altersgruppen und Geschlechter gleichermaßen ansprechend wirkt.

Decolonization in Germany

Weimar narratives of colonial loss and foreign occupation

Author: Jared Poley

Publisher: Peter Lang Publishing


Category: History

Page: 281

When Germany lost its colonial empire after the Great War, many Germans were unsure how to understand this transition. They were the first Europeans to experience complete colonial loss, an event which came as Germany also wrestled with wartime collapse and foreign occupation. In this book the author considers how Germans experienced this change from imperial power to postcolonial nation. This work examines what the loss of the colonies meant to Germans, and it analyzes how colonialist categories took on new meanings in Germany's post-colonial period. Poley explores a varied collection of materials that ranges from the stories of popular writer Hanns Heinz Ewers to the novels, essays, speeches, pamphlets, posters, and archival materials of nationalist groups in the occupied Rhineland to show how decolonization affected Germans. When the relationships between metropole and colony were suddenly severed, Germans were required to reassess many things: nation and empire, race and power, sexuality and gender, economics and culture.
