INTRODUCTION:

Liber Juratus is one of the oldest and most influential texts of Medieval magic. The prologue says the text was compiled to help preserve the core teachings of the sacred magic, in the face of intense persecution by church officials. This may be a reference to the actions of pope John XXII (1316-34).

I believe the almost legendary reputation of this work led to the forgery of the so-called Grimoire of Pope Honorius, a ridiculous work so despised by Eliphas Levi and A. E. Waite.

According to Lynn Thorndike, it is also known as Liber Sacer or Liber Sacratus by which name it is mentioned at least twice in the thirteenth century.

Editions

Latin. A critical edition of the Latin text has recently been published by Gösta Hedegård.5 Hedegård's text was largely based on Sl. 3854, which is the most complete, most senior, and "least tampered with".

English. The only attempt at publishing any significant portion of the English translation was Daniel Driscoll's The Sworn Book of Honourius (sic) the Magician, Heptangle Books, 1977. Unfortunately, Driscoll did not make use of the best manuscripts, omitted large portions, misread and misplaced angelic names and words from the prayers, and otherwise took serious liberties with the text. It is however a fine example of the book publisher's craft, and has become a valuable collectable.

Manuscripts

The Sworne Book is represented in several manuscripts including the following found in the British Museum:

RRoyal MS 17Axlii (Latin and English, dated mid-sixteenth century because of borrowing from Agrippa not found in the older manuscripts). 82 folios. Does not include all of the text, but breaks off just after the beginning of chapter CXV, namely just short of the actual instructions for invoking the angels. The title in the catalog reads 'The Sworne Booke of Honoryus':
   'THE SWORNE BOOKE' of 'Honoryus' (see f. 4 b, 
   11.  3, 6):  a translation of a book of magic, entitled (see 
   Sloane MS. 3854,  f. 138 b) 'Liber de vita anime racionalis,
   qui liber sacer uel liber angelorum vel liber iuratus
   nuncupatur, quem fecit Honorius magister Thebarum',
   purporting to be compiled by Honorius filius 
   Euclidis as the result of a conference of 89 magistri from 
   Naples, Athens, and Toledo, convened by the authority 
   of the Pope and cardinals (cf. also Sloane MSS. 313, 
   f. 1, 3885, f. 58).  Beg.  'When wycked sprites ware 
   gathered  together'.
      On f. 82 is a charm, in a 16th cent. band, on the word, 'Calendant' 
   against ague.
      Vellum;  ff. 82. 7 1/2 in. x 5 1/2 in.  XV cent.  Gatherings  of 4 leaves 
   (viii5, xiv6, xv10, xix2).  Sec, fol.  'and ye cause'.  Pen-drawings of 
   angels and spirits and marginal floral ornament, usually coloured, 
   sometimes in gold;  chapter-headings in red, blue, or green.  On the 
   fly-leaf (f. 1) are some late 16th cent. pen-drawings with the initials 
   R. T.  This  MS.  and the next two are bound together. 
S313Sloane MS 313 (late fourteenth or early fifteenth century). This manuscript is known to have been in the collection of John Dee, and contains marginal notes in his handwriting. The title in the catalog reads simply "Tract on Magic.", or "Salomonis opus sacrum ab Honorio ordinatum, tractatus de arte magica." It is an important independent witness to most of the text.
Sloane 3826 (fol. 58-83) 16th century. Excerpts from LJ. The catalog of angels found in Royal MS 17Axlii also has parallels in Sloane 3826.
Sloane 3849 (art. 7) Excerpts from LJ.
S3 Sloane 3853: This manuscript contains large portions of the Sworn Book. Mid 16th century, also with excerpts from Agrippa (with citations) and many other texts. English and Latin. Although belonging to the same family of manuscripts as Sl. 3854 and Sl. 3885 (see below), it is important, in that it is the only second witness to portions of the text, including the drawing of the magic circle, and shows some independence. It has the odd trait of occasionally replacing letters steganographically, but the result is hardly disguised at all, e.g. "cpnkuro" for "conjuro" and "dfmpnes" for "demones."

K A beautiful and unique manuscript of Ganellus' Summa sacre magice is now available online. This text quotes extensively from Liber Iuratus, as well as other interesting texts.

Of these, Sloane 3854 is the most reliable, complete, and readable.

All of the manuscripts seem to be missing some text, as shown by internal references to material not actually to be found. One example is the reference to the seals of angels. To make up for these evident deficiencies, the Royal manuscript seems to have inserted some additional text not found in the other manuscripts, namely the information on angels and incenses, most of which is taken from Agrippa and De Abano. It is also missing some text found in the other manuscripts.

Variants are of some interest. Note the recurring sound changes: "i" (R manuscript) becomes "g" (S5 manuscript), e.g. "ienomos" [R] = "genomos" [S5], ..iel [r] = ..ihel [S5], e.g. "kariel" [r] = "karihel" [S5]; also frequent interchange of y to i and i to y; ..am [r] = ..um [S5], e.g. "lemeliham" [r] = "lemelihum" [S5]. possible evidence of mss tradition in some other script [Hebrew or Greek?] or oral tradition.

John Dee, in his Mystical Experiments, was originally told to use a version found in one of his books. Dee consulted several sources, and consulted the angels to resolve the discrepancies. This prompted them to detail an almost totally new version of the Sigil. One of Dee's sources was apparently Sl.313. Roberts and Watson, in their 1990 John Dee's Library Catalogue, pg. 168, identify Sloane 313 as being one of Dee's manuscripts. They give it catalog number DM70, and note, "On fol.9 (originally the first leaf, fol.1-8 having been misbound) is [Dee's ladder symbol] and, very faint, 'Fragmentum Magicum', which may be in Dee's hand. At the foot is 'Sum Ben: Jonsonij liber'."

Note also that the section 'On the composition of the Divine Seal' also occurs in the Hebrew version of the Key of Solomon (fol. 3b-5b).

Note too that the Orations found in Liber Juratus parallel (and are probably derived from) those found in the Ars Notoria, for example:

Liber Juratus: [Oratio 17, Royal, fol. 37v] Ars Notoria: The oration of the physical art

This edition.

This edition is based on the English translation of the Royal manuscript, but with deficiencies and some variant readings from Sl. 3854 (designated S4), Sl. 3885 (abbreviated S5), and Sl. 3853 (designated S3) are also noted.

A complete transcription of R is included on the left-hand side, with a slightly modernized (for readability) version on the right. I have also supplied translations of some of the Latin passages.

The diagram of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth is based on that in Sloane 313, but with a few corrections based on the description in the text. It has been reconstructed using the excellent Schreibweise font from Andrew Leman at E-phemera. It was developed from a sample of a German manuscript dating from 1492. This is fairly close to the (although considerably corrupted) version shown in Athanasius Kircher in his monumental work Oedipus Aegyptiacus (1562). The drawing of the sigil does not occur in Royal, Sloane 3854, or Sl.3885. The version in Sloane 3853 (reproduced in C.J.S. Thompson, The Mysteries and Secrets of Magic, New York, 1973, pg. 186, but without identifying the source) is somewhat different. The drawing, with interesting differences, also appears in an Italian manuscript of the Key of Solomon in the Bodleian Library, MS. Mich. 276.

[I. Prologue]

When wicked spirits were gathered together, intending to send devils into the hearts of men, to the intent they would destroy all things profitable for mankind, and to corrupt all the whole world, even to the uttermost of their power, sowing hypocrise and envy, and rooting bishops and prelates in pride, even the pope himself and his cardinals, which gathering themselves together said one to another as here follows:

Notes:
the helth which the lorde hathe| gevin his people Is now through magecke and| negromansy turned Into the damnacyon of all pe-| ople, for even the magyans them selves being in-| toxycated and blynded by the devill, and contrary| to the order of christes chvrche and transgressing| the commavdement of god, which dothe saye tho-| w shalte not tempe the lorde thy god, but him on-| ly shalte þu serve, but these negromansers or ma-| gyans denying the sacryfyce dew vnto god and in| tempting him hathe donne sacryfyce vnto devi-| lls and abvsed his name In calling of them co-| ntrary to the profession made at there baptin,

The health which the Lord has given his people is now through magic and negromancy turned into the damnation of all people. For even the magians themselves, being intoxicated and blinded by the devil, and contrary to the order of Christ's Church, and transgressing the commandment of God, which says, "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God, but him only shalt thou serve."

But these negromancers or magians, denying the sacrifice due to God, and in tempting him have done sacrifice to devils, and abused His Name in calling of them, contrary to the profession made at there baptism,

“You shall not test the Lord your God”: (Deut.6:16); "but you shall serve him alone”: (Deut. 6:13)
[1v]
for there it is sayd: for sake the devill and all his| pompes, but thes magyans and negromansers| dothe nott follow only the pompes and workes| of sathan but hathe also brought all people th-| rough there meruelus ellusyons In to þe err-| ors drawing the ignorant and suche lyke In| to the damnasyon bothe of sowle and body, and| they thinkinge this for no other purpose. but| that by this they shulde destroye all other scye-| nces, it is thought mite therfore to plucke vp| and vtterly to dystroy this dedly roote and all the| followers of this arte, but they throvghe the I-| nstygasyon off the deuill and being moued wt| envy and couetusnes vnder the simylytude of| truthe they did publyshe and spred abrode þe f-| alshed speking falce and vnlykely thinges, for| It is nott possible þt a wicked and vnclen man| shulde worke trwly In this arte, for men are n-| ott bownde vnto sprites, but the sprites are co-| nstrayned agaynst þr wills to answere men þt| be clensed or clene, and to fulfill there requeste-| s, yet agaynst all yos willes we haue gone abo-| wt to set forthe the princyples of this arte

for there it is said, "Forsake the devil and all his pomps." But these magians and negromancers do not follow only the pomps and works of Satan, but have also brought all people through their marvellous illusions into the errors, drawing the ignorant and such like into the damnation both of soul and body, and they thinking this for no other purpose but that by this they should destroy all other sciences.

It is thought meet [=proper] therefore to pluck up and utterly to destroy this deadly root, and all the followers of this art, but they through the instigation of the devil, and being moved with envy and covetousness under the similitude of truth, they did publish and spread abroad the falsehood, speaking false and unlikely things. For it is not possible that a wicked and unclean man should work truely in this art, for men are not bound to spirits, but the spirits are constrained against their wills to answer men that are cleansed or clean, and to fulfill their requests. Yet against all those wills we have gone about to set forth the principles of this art,

[2r]
and þe cause of truthe, and for that cause thay h-| ad condemned this arte and Iudged hus to dethe.

and the cause of truth, and for that cause thay had condemned this art and judged us to death.

we therfore throughe godes sufferance haui-| ng a fore knoledge of that Iudgement knowing a-| lso þt by it shulde folow miche mischefe and þt It| was impossible to vs to scape the handes of the| people by owre owne strengthe wt owt the helpe| of sprites dowting þt a greter danger wolde folo-| w upon it, for the wicked power of the sprites a-| tt owre commaundement wolde haue destroyed| them all vtterly In on, wherfore we called on ge-| nerall counsell off all the masters In the which| counsell of *811* masters which camme owte of| naples athence and tholetus we dyd chuse on| whose name was honorius the sonne of euclud-| vs master of the thebanes, In the which cytye th-| is art was redd þt he shulde worke for us in| this sayde arte, and he throughe the counsell| of a sertayne angell whose name was hocroell| dyd wryte *7* volumes of arte magicke, geuy-| ng vnto hus the kernel and vnto other the sh-| alles owt of the which bookes he drw owt *93*| chapiters in the which Is bryffely contayned

We therefore, through God's sufferance, having a foreknowledge of that judgement, knowing also that by it should follow much mischief, and that it was impossible to us to escape the hands of the people by our own strength without the help of spirits, doubting [i.e. fearing] that a greater danger would follow upon it, for the wicked power of the spirits at our command could have destroyed them [i.e. those who condemned us] all utterly in an hour.

Wherefore, we called a general council of all the masters. And out of the which council of 811 [*89]1 masters which came out of Naples, Athens, and Toledo, we did choose one whose name was Honorius, the son of Euclid, master of the Thebians, in the which city this art was read, that he should work for us in this said art. And he through the council of a certain angel whose name was Hocroel, did write seven volumes of art magic, giving to us the kernel, and to others the shells. Out of the which books he drew out 93 chapters, in the which is briefly contained

[2v]
the effecte off this arte, off the which, chapters he| made a booke which we doo call the sacred or sworne| booke for this cause, for in it is contayned a *100*| sacred names of god and therfor it is callyd sac-| red as ye wolde saye made of holy thinges, or ell-| es be cause by this booke he came to the knowled-| ge of sacred or holy thinges, or elles be cause It| was cosecrated of angells, or elles be cause the a-| ngell hocroell did declare and show vnto him þt | it was consecrated of god, then they prynces &| prelates being pacefyed wt burning of serten f-| ables or tryffles, thought verely this arte had| bin vtterly destroyed, and therfore we being som-| whate moued made this othe amounge oure se-| lues, first þt this book shulde be delyueryd to no| man vntyll suche tyme as the master of the ar-| te were in Ieoberdye of dethe and þt it shulde| be copyed but vnto *3* att the most, and þt it sh-| ulde be delyueryd to no woman nor to any ma-| n excepte he were off lawfull aghe which shulde| also be bothe godely and faythfull whose gode-| ly behauer had bin tryed by the space of a whole| yere, and þt this booke shulde no more here after

the effect of this art, of the which chapters he made a book which we do call The Sacred or Sworn Book for this cause, for in it is contained the 100 sacred names of God, and therefor it is called sacred, as you would say "made of holy things," or else because by this book he came to the knowledge of sacred or holy things, or else because it was consecrated by angels, or else because the angel Hocroel did declare and show him that it was consecrated of God.

[The oath]

Then the princes and prelates being pacified with burning of certain fables or trifles, thought verily that this art had been utterly destroyed, and therefore we being somewhat moved, made this oath among ourselves:

  • First, that this book should be delivered to no man until such time as the master of the art were in jeopardy of death, and
  • That it should be copied but to three at the most, and
  • That it should be delivered to no woman, nor to any man except he were of lawful age, and he should also be both Godly and faithful, whose Godly behavior had been tried for the space of a whole year, and
  • That this book should no more hereafter be destroyed, but that it should be restored again to the honor, or to his successors, and
[3r]
be dystroyed, but þt it shulde be restored agayne to þe| honore or to his successors, and yf there cane nott| be founde an able and a sufficyent man to who-| me this booke mighte be delyueryd, þt then the mast-| er bynde his executors by a stronge othe to bury | it withe him in his graue, or ells he shall him se-| lfe whyle he liueth bury it him selfe, in some pl-| ace honestely and clenly, and newer after to reu-| ele the place by any surcumstances to any creat-| ure, and yf the master shall haue nide of any sco-| llers or will proue them any man of wayes þt for| to fulfyll his commaundementes yff nide be they| shall euen suffer dethe rather then they will decl-| are eyther the sayinges or doinges of there ma-| ster, or þt he knoweth any suche thinges, nor decl-| are any suche thing by any man of surcumstan-| ces. and lyke as a father dothe cause on of his so-| nnes to loue another, euen so doth the master v-| nytte and kintt together his discyples or scholler-| s in concorde and loue so þt alwayes the on shall| helpe to bayre the others burthen, nor on shall no-| tt revele the secretes of a nother, but they shall be| faythfull off on mynde and concorde, and he þt

[3v]
he shall trewly performe obserue and kepe every art-| ycle off his othe and for this cause this is callyd | the sworne booke: {*ffinis prologi */*/*/*/*/*
  • If there cannot be found an able and a sufficient man to whom this booke might be delivered, that then the master bind his executors by a strong oath to bury it with him in his grave, or else he shall himself while he lives bury it himself in some place honestly and cleanly, and never after to reveal the place by any circumstances to any creature, and
  • If the master shall have nide of any scholars or will prove them any manner of ways that for to fulfill his commandments if need be, they shall even suffer death rather than they will declare either the sayings or doings of their master, or that he knows any such things, nor declares any such thing by any man of circumstances. And like as a father causes one of his sons to love another, even so does the master unite and knit together his disciples or scholars in concord and love, so that always the one shall help to bear the others burden, nor one shall not reveal the secrets of another, but they shall be faithful of one mind and concord, and he that he shall truely perform, observe, and keep every article of his oath.

And for this cause this [book] is called The Sworn Book.

[III.] Here begins the book.


we therfore thorow godes helpe Intendinge to | folow the stepps and precepes of salomon, th-| erfore to the receyuing of suche an highe mi-| sterye we prefesse to be oone chiffe princy-| ple or begininge, note therfore that the first | and chiffe princyple or begininge is the de-| vyne maiestye, and the trew Inuocatyon m-| ust cume frome the very faythe of the harte, | the which faythe the workes shall declare, [6v] ffor salomon sayde there is one only god | one mighte, or power, oone faythe, of whome | oone worke, oone princyple or begininge, | and of whome the prefectyon and effecte of | euery worke dothe comme althoughe this | be deuyded into many partes, ffor lyke as | all the holle partes doo sauor and smel of the | body euen to lykewyse dothe of these thin-| ges comme all perfectyon and effect. */*/*/*

We therefore, through God's help, intending to follow the steps and precepts of Solomon, therefore to your receiving of such a high mystery, we profess to be one chief principal or beginning. Note therefore that the first and chief principal or beginning is the Divine Majesty, and the true invocation must come from the very faith of the heart, the which faith the works shall declare. For Solomon said there is one only God, one might or power, one faith, of whom one work, one principal or beginning, and of whom the perfection and effect of every work comes, although this be divided into many parts. For like as all the whole parts do savour and smell of the body, even so likewise of these things come all perfection and effect.

In the name therfore of the true And ly-| uing gode which Is alpha et omega þe | beginninge and the endinge which is the fat-| her the sonne, and the holy gost *3* persones | and on god the gyuer off lyffe and the dest-| royer off dethe for he destroyed oure dethe | and thrughe his resurrectyon restored vs | agayne to lyffe. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

In the name therefore of the true and living God, who is Alpha and Omega the beginning and the ending, which is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, three persons and one God, the giver of life, and the destroyer of death. For he destroyed our death and through his resurrection restored us again to life.

Of the making of the Seal of God, for the knowledge of the first part, of the knowledge of the diety, for the knowledge of the second part, in the third part of the vision of angels, the fourth of the constrinkesyon, the fifth part of the bonds of dead men.2

2. Lat. "de ligatione infernorum" (concerning the binding of the inhabitants of the underworld).
off angels there are *3* kyndes */*/*/*/*/* | some be selestyall, and some of the ayre and some | be of the earthe. off the celestyall there are also *2* | kyndes somme of them doo serue god only and | those be the *9* orders of angells that is to saye | cherubin, and seraphin, trones, domynatyons, | vertuse, princypates, and potestates, arkangells | and angells off whome it is to be spoken amo-| unge mortall men, for they will nott be constray-| ned by any artyfysyall powr, and therfore | they oughte nott to be Inuocated for they a-| lwayes stande before the deuyne maiestye an| d are neuer seperated from his presens, yet be | cause the sowle of man was creatyd with | theme and to there lykenes, lookinge to be re-| wardyd with them maye through the gyfte | and grace of god his bodye yet lyuing beh-| olde the deuyne maiestye, and with them to | prayse and know god þe creator, and this kn-| owledge is nott to know god in his magestye [7v] and power but euer as adame and the | prophettes dyd know him,

Of angels there are three kinds. Some are celestial, some are of the air, and some are of the earth. Of the celestial, there are also two kinds. Some of them serve God only, and those are the nine orders of angels, that is to say, cherubin, seraphin, thrones, dominations, virtues, principates, potestates, archangels, and angels. Of whom it is to be spoken among mortal men, for they will not be constrained by any artificial power. And therefore they ought not be invocated, for they always stand before the Divine Majesty, and are never separated from His presence. Yet because the soul of man was created with them, and to there likeness, looking to be rewarded with them may through the gift and grace of God, his body yet living behold the Divine Majesty, and with them to praise and to know God the creator, and this knowledge is not to know God in his majesty and power, but ever as Adam and the prophets did know him.

but this is p-| rincypally to be noted that there are *3* ky-| ndes off men þt worke in this arte Iwes, ch-| ristyans and pagans, the pagans doo sacry-| fyce to the sprites of the ayre and of the ea-| rthe but they doo nott constrayne or bynde th-| em, but the sprites doo fayne them selues to | be bownde by the wordes of there law, to the | Intent they maye make them to committ ido-| letrye, and neuer turne to the true faythe, | and by cause there faythe is nought therfore | there workes be nawght, he þt will worke aft| er þt man must forsake the lyuing god, and | must doo sacryfyce vnto sprites and Idolles | for it is faythe that worketh in a man good | or euill, wherfore it is sayde in the gospell þe | faythe hathe made the saffe, the Iwes doo in | nowyse worke to obtayne the visyon of the | deytye, for by the comminge of christe they lo-| st there prehemynence nor they can nott | comme to heauen, for the lorde dothe saye [8r] he that is nott baptysed shall be damned, and | so in all angells they worke Imperfectly, nor | they canontt throughe there inuocatyons brin-| ge any worke to effecte excepte they be liue | in christe. ffor it is sayd by the prophet, when | the kinge of kinges and the lorde of lordes | Is cume then shall youre anoyntinge cease w-| hich shulde neuer haue ceasyd yf they cowlde | haue wroughte effectually by this arte, and so | there workes are noughte, and althoughe the | Iwes in that þt they are Iwes are condemny-| d of yet they doo wurship the highe creator but | nott after a dew sorte, yet thorow the powr of | the holy names of god spirrites are constray-| ned to comme. but Iwes because they are no-| tt signed wt the signe of god that is to saye | with the signe of the crosse therfore they | sprites will nott answere them trewly, ther-| fore the christyan man only dothe worke | trewly to cum to the vysyon of the deyte, and | in all other workes, and althoughe *3* sortes | of men doo worke by this arte magyke, yet [8v] It is nott to be thoughte þt there is any eu-| ill in this name magyan, for this same na-| me magyan dothe signefy in the grike twunge | a philosopher, and in the hebru twunge a sc-| rybe, and in the latten twunge it signefyeth | wyse and so this name of arte magyke is co-| mpownded of this worde magos wiche Is | as muche to saye as wyse and of ycos wiche | by interpretasyon is knowledge for by it a | man is made wyse, for by this arte a man | maye know thinges present past and to | come */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

But this is principally to be noted, that there are three kinds of men that work in this art: Jews, Christians, and pagans. The pagans do sacrifice to the spirits of the air and of the earth, but they do not constrain or bind them, but the spirits do fain themselves to be bound by the words of their law, to the intent they may make them commit idolatry, and never turn to the true faith. And because their faith is nought, therefore their works are nought. He that will work after that man must forsake the living God, and must do sacrifice to spirits and idols. For it is faith that works in a man good or evil. Wherefore it is said in the Gospel, "your faith has made you safe."

The Jews do in no wise work to obtain the vision of the Deity, for by the coming of Christ they lost their preeminence, nor can they come to heaven, for the Lord says, he that is not baptized shall be damned. And so in all angels they work imperfectly. Nor can they through their invocations bring any work to effect, except they believe in Christ. For it is said by the prophet, "when the king of kings and the Lord of Lords is come, then shall your annointing cease," which should never have ceased if they could have wrought effectually by this art. And so theire works are nought. And although the Jews in that they are Jews are condemned, of yet they do worship the High Creator, but not after a due sort. Yet through the power of the holy names of God, spirits are constrained to come. But Jews because they are not signed with the sign of God, that is to say with the sign of the cross, therefore those spirits will not answer them truely.

Therefore, the Christian man only works truely to come to the vision of the Deity, and in all other works. And although three sorts of men do work by this art magic, yet it is not to be thought that there is any evil in this name Magian, for this same name Magian signifies in the Greek tongue a philosopher, and in the Hebrew tongue a scribe, and in the Latin tongue it signifies wise. And so this name of art magic is compounded of this word magos which is as much to say as 'wise,' and of ycos which by interpretation is 'knowledge.' For by it a man is made wise. For by this art a man may know things present, past, and to come.

First, make a circle with a diameter of three fingers, on account of the Lord's three nails, or five on account of the five wounds, or seven on account of the seven sacraments, or nine on account of the nine orders of angels, but generally five fingers are customary.

Then, below that circle make another circle, distant from the first by two barley grains (on account of the two Tablets of Moses), else the distance from the first can be three grains (on account of the three persons in the Trinity.)

Then below those two circles in the uppermost part, which is called the southern angle, make a single cross, the leg of which may slightly enter the innermost circle.

Then, from the right side of the cross, write .h. (the "exalation"), then .t., then .o. then .e. x . o. r. a. b. a. l. a. y. q. c. i. y. s. t. a. l. g. a. a. o. n. o. s. v. l. a. r [t]. y. t. c. e. k. s. p. f. y. o. m. e. m. a. n. a. r. e. l. a. c. e. d. a. t. o. n. o. n. a. o. y. l. e. [y]. o. t. m. a. and these letters may be made an equal distance apart, and may surround the circle. And with that series of letters which was previously named the circle will thus be filled with the great name of the Lord, Schemhamphoras, of 72 letters.

This done, in the middle of the circles, namely in the center, make a pentagram thus:

[Pentagram]

in the middle of which should be the sign 'Tau', thus: [.T.], and above that sign, write the name of God El, and underneath this another name of God, namely, Ely, in this fashion:

.

Then, below the uppermost angle of the pentagram, write these two letters: .l.x.
And below the other in the right angle, these two: .a.l.
and in the next after those, these two: .l.a.
and in the next after that: .l.c.
and in that following: .u.m.

Then, around the pentagram make a heptagon; it may touch the uppermost side of the pentagram, <its second> which is after the middlemost top angle, where are written .l.x.

And in the same side of the heptagon write this name of the holy angel, which is Casziel.
And in the next side from the right-most, the name of the holy angel, which is Satquiel.
Then in the next Samael, and in the next Raphael, afterwards Anael, afterwards Michael, followed by Gabriel. And thus the seven sides of the heptagon will be completed.

Then, around that preceding heptagon, make another heptagon, not made like the first, but in such a manner that the one side of it will intersect the previous side of the same.

Then make another such heptagon, like the first, whose seven angles touch the seven angles of the second heptagon, and the which should be shown doubled.

<Yet here, the heptagon under the preceding second will be contained,> unum latus secundi heptagoni supernudo et aliud subenudo, sed latus primo angulo succedens subenudo ibit. et quae sequntur serie supereuntis et subeuntis alterutrum se habebunt.

Then, in each of the angles of the second heptagon make a cross.

Then, in that side (of the second heptagon) which goes from the last angle to the second angle of the same, in that part which is above the first syllable of Casziel, this syllable from a sacred name of God should be written: la, and above the last syllable of the same (Casziel) should be written this syllable: ya, and in the space [between] the intersection and the second cross should be written the syllable ly.

Then, in that side which extends from the first angle of the second heptagon, and continues to the third angle of the same, this holy name of God should be written: Narath, and the first syllable, Na should be written in that space of the same side which is above the first syllable of Satquiel, and the syllable Ra in the space which is above the last syllable of the same, and the two letters 't,' 'h' made in that place which is in the same side between the side intersecting itself and the third cross.

Then, in that side (of the same second heptagon) which extends from the third angle of the same to the fifth of the same, should be written this holy name of the Creator, which is called Libarre, such that the syllable Ly is written above the first syllable of Raphael, and the syllable bar is over the last syllable of the same, and the syllable re in that space of the same side which is between the side intersecting itself and the fifth angle of the same second heptagon.

Then, in that side (of the same second heptagon) which is farthest from the fifth cross, this other sacred name of the Creator should be written: Libares, such that the syllable Ly is written in that space of the side which is above the first syllable of Michael, and the syllable ba in that space of the side which is above the last syllable of the same (Michael), and the syllable res in that space of the same side which is between the side intersecting itself and the last cross.

Then, in that side (of the same second heptagon) which goes from the second angle (of the same second heptagon) to the fourth, this other holy name should be written: Lialg cum coniunctiua ita quod coniunctiua in illo loco eiusdem lateris scribatur which is above the first syllable of Samael and this syllable ly in that space of the same side which is above the last syllable of the same (Samael), and this syllable alg in that place of the same side which is between the side intersecting itself and the fourth cross.

But beware that the coniunctiua (connective) should be written thus: [figure] with the inscription intersecting, because of the fear of God malum volitum dividentem.

Then, on that side (of the same heptagon) that goes from the fourth cross to the sixth, write this other sacred name of God: Ueham, such that the syllable ve is written above the first syllable of Anael, and the letter h is above the last syllable of the same, and the syllable am is in the space of the same side which is [inter]secting the side itself and the sixth cross.

Then on that side which goes from the sixth angle (of the same second heptagon) to the first angle, this other sacred name of God should be written: yalgal, such that the letter y is written in the space of the same side which is above the first syllable of Gabriel, and the syllable al is above the last, and the syllable gal should be written in the space of the same side which is between the intersection and the first cross.

Then, in the middle of the first side and the third heptagon, to the right, should be written vos, and in the next place Duymas, and in the next Gyram, and in the next Gram, andin the next Aysaram, and in the next Alpha, and in the next [omega].

Then, in that small space which is under the second and the third angle of the first heptagon, should be written this name of God: el,
and in that small space which is to the right under the second and third angles of the heptagons under the second cross, this name: ON,
and in the next space under the third cross, again this name: el,
and in the next under the fourth cross, again: ON,
and in the next under the fifth cross, again: el,
and in the next under the sixth cross, again: ON,
and in the next under the seventh cross: [omega].

Then in that small space which is enclosed between the first angle of the second heptagon and the second angle of the same, and the first side of the third heptagon, and the part touching those angles of the circle, draw a single cross in the middle, namely in that space. And in the top-left space of the cross, write the letter: a,
and in the top-right space of the cross this letter: g,
and in the lower-right space write another letter: a,
and in the fourth lower space this other letter: l.

Then in the middle of the next small space to the right, write this name of God: Ely,
and in the next, this name: Eloy,
and in the next: Christos,
and in the next: Sother,
and in the next: ADONAI,
and in the next: Saday.

This of course comprises AGLA (acronym/name of God) based on "Attah Gibbor Le'olam Adonai," -- "the first four words of the second benediction of Shemoneh 'Esreh" See Agrippa OP3.11 and the Jewish Encyclopedia. The drawing in Sl. 313 shows the 'a' on the bottom left, and the 'l' on the bottom right.

After this you shall know that commonly in the exemplars the five-cornered star or amulet is made of red, with the space within dyed saffron [yellow], and the first seven-cornered star of azure, the second of saffron, the third of purple, and the round circle of Black.

And the space between the circles where the name Schemhamphoras is, is died with saffron. At other spaces are to be coloured with green.

<Where Tetragrammaton ye & the circle about that white, with the angels names and planets.>

But in operations it must otherwise be done. For it is made with the blood either of a mole or of a turtledove, or a lapwing, or of a bat, or of them all, and in virgin parchment of a calf, or of foal, or a hind calf [i.e. deer]. And so is the Seal of God perfect.

And by this holy and consecrated seal after it is consecrated, you may work operations which shall be declared afterwards in this book. The manner of consecrating of this holy seal ought thus to be as followeth.

S3: After this thow shalt knowe that comonly in the examplars the fyve cornarde cyrkyll or mullet [=amulet] is made of redd died wt saffron wtin the spaces & the ffirst crkell wt 7 corners of azure, the seconde of saffron.

[12v]
Inspirante domino dixit salomon unus | est solus deus, sola fides, sola virtus, quam | dominus hominibus voluit reuelari et di-| stribui hoc [*tali] modo. dexit angelus .Samael. | Salomoni hoc dabis populo Israel qui et | aliis similiter tribuent [sic placuit creatori] et iubet ipsum domin-| vs taliter consecrari, primo sit mundus op-| erans non pollutus, et cum deuocione fac-| iat non astute, non commedat neque vibat, | donec perfecerit opus, et sanguis quo scrip-| tus [*scriptum] fuerit primo sit benedictus sicut postea | dicetur, deinde suffumigetr, hoc sigillum am-| bra musco aloe lapdano albo et rubeo, mastice, | olibano margaritis et thure.

By the inspiration of God, Solomon said: there is only one God, one faith, and one virtue, which the Lord intended to be revealed to men and distributed of this wise. The angel [Samael] said to Solomon, "This shall you give to the people of Israel who also shall likewise give to others. So it has pleased the creator."

And the Lord commands it thus to be consecrated: § First, let the worker be clean, not polluted, and let him do it with devotion, not deceytfully. § Let him not eat nor drink till he has done his work. § And the blood wherewith it shall be written, first must be blessed as shall be said afterward. Then the seal must be [per]fumed with amber, musk, aloes, lapdanum, white and red mastick, olibanum margarith [i.e. pearls], and frankincense, calling upon and praying to the Lord and all holy angels, by saying as follows:

S3, fol. 128r: By the inspiracion of god, Salomon said: þer is only one god only faith only vertue wch the lord wolde to be reueled to men & distributed of this wyse. The angell said to Salomon this shalt thow geve to the people off Israell whiche also shall likewise geve to others, so it hathe pleased the creator. / & the lorde comaundeth it thus to be cõsecrated / ffirst let the worker be cleane not polluted & let hym do it wt deuocion not deceytfully / let hym not eate nor drynke tyll he heaue done his worke / & the blode wherwith it shalbe written first must be blessed as shalbe said afterward. than the seale must be fumed wt amber, muske, aloes, lapdanum the white & redd / mastyke, Olibanum margaritis & encensce, callyng uppõ & prayng to the lorde & all holy angels, by sayng as foloweth.

Oration.

"That you, O Lord, through the annunciation, the conception" etc.1 "that you would deign to bless and consecrate this most holy name and your seal, so that through it with your mediation, I or such person N, will be able to conquer such heavenly powers, of the air or earth, with the infernal ones, to subjugate, invoke, transmute, conjure, constrain, arouse, congregate, disperse, bind and return them without harm. To appease people and favourably obtain from them their petitions, to pacify enemies, to disunite those pacified, to protect the health of those who are healthy, or to sicken them, and to cure the sick. To guard good people from evil, and to distinguish and recognised them, to evade all physical danger, to make favourable judges be favourably disposed again, to have victory in all things, to destroy carnal sins, and rout, conquer, and rout spiritual ones, to increase wealth in good things, and on the Day of Judgement that I may appear on your right hand with your saints and elect, and be able to recognise your majesty.”
1. Tr. JHP. This oration is given in full in chapter CXIX, which is unfortunately not included in J. S3, fol. 128v: That thow lorde by the annunciacion, conceptiõ &c. wilte vouchesafe to blesse & cõsecrate this thy most holy name & seale that by it through thy mediacion I may or suche one maye N. convitco heuenly powers ayrely earthy & infernall to subdue invocate to alter coniure, cõstrayne, reyse up, cõgregate dryve away to bynde & to make them not able to hurte or harme to pacifie men & of them to haue graciouslye myne or his peticions to quyet enemyes. / them þt be at peace to disseuer & to kepe seke [=sick] men in helth or to make them seeke./ to make seke men whole, to keper evyll men from good & to dyvide & to know them. / to skape all bodely daunger, to make Iudges pacified at pleasure./ to obteyne victory in all thyngs, to mortifie carnall synnes & to dryve away ouercome & avoyde, the spirituall./ to encrease riches in good thyngs & whan in the daye of iudgement, I or he shall appere of thy ryght hande wt thy saynts & electe I or he maye knowe thy maiestie.

Then that night let him lay it without the house in the clear air. Then you shall have new gloves made without fingers thereon [perhaps better: without whitening with chalk], into the which no man ever did put his hand, in the which the seal shall be fast put and thus is accomplished this holy [*consecrated] seal [whose first heptagon designates the seven orders, whose second designates the seven twofold events, and whose third designates the seven sacraments.]

S3, fol. 128v: Than that nyght let hym ley it wtout the house in the cleare ayre, then, thow shalt haue new gloves made wtout fyngrs theron, in to the wch no man euer dyd put his hande in the whiche the seale shall be fast put & thus is complisshed this holy seale.
Prima mundatio that is to saye the beginninge of the | clensinge or powrginge of him þt shall worke in this arte ffor | he must be cleane ffrom all filthynes of soule and bodye. */*/*/*

[V.] The beginning of the cleansing or purging of him who shall work in this art, for he must be clean from all filthiness of soul and body.


[13v]
Now that we haue fynisshed the composityon | or makinge of the seale of god, let vs procede to kno-| w how we shall obtayne the visyon or sighte of the deite. | ffirst he þt shall worke must be very penitent and trew-| ly confessed of all his sinnes. he muste vtterly forbere þe | company of women and all there intycements, in so | muche þt he maye nott looke vpon them, ffor as salo-| mon sayeth, it is better to abyde withe a bere or a ly-| on in there dennes then to be in a howse wt a wickyd | woman, he maye kepe no company wt wicked or sin-| full men, for as dauid sayethe wt þe holy thow shalte | be holy, and wt the wicked thow shalte be wicked. the-| rfore he muste leade a pure and a clene lyffe. for dau-| id sayeth blyssed are the vndefyled and those þt walke | in the lawe of þe lorde, lett not his apparryll be filthe | but rather new, or elles very cleane waschyd, sal-| omon meanithe here by þe new garmentes vertu | and purenes of lyffe, ffor god and his holy ang-| ells care for no wordely thinges, and that do-| the appere, for the pore men doo soner worke | effectually in this arte then the ryche men, | but in this worke folowinge clene apparr-

[14r]
yll is necessarye, for angells doo abyde wt me~ | and they be clene, and therfor they desyre to h-| aue clene apparryll, and therfore salomon di-| d speke generally aswell of the clennes of þe | soule as of the clennes of apparryll, and let | him that shall worke neuer be ydell least | his harte doo the soner enclyne to synne for | the scripture sayeth, be alwayes doinge som-| e thinge lest ye be fownde ydle, and lett | him alwayes praye vnto god withe these praye-| rs folowinge for the scripture sayethe bless-| ed is the seruant whome the lorde when | he commethe shall fynde wakinge */*/*/*/*/*

Now that we have finished the composition or making of the Seal of God, let us proceed to know how we shall obtain the vision or sight of the Deity.

First he that shall work must be very penitent and truly confessed of all his sins. He must utterly forbear the company of women and all their enticements, insomuch that he may not look upon them. For as Solomon says, "It is better to abide with a bear or a lion in their den than to be in a house with a wicked woman." He may keep no company with wicked or sinful men, for as David says, "With the holy you shall be holy, and with the wicked you shall be wicked." Therefore he must lead a pure and clean life. For David says, "blessed are the undefiled and those that walk in the law of the Lord." Let not his apparel be filthy, but rather new, or else very clean washed. Solomon means here by the new garments virtue and pureness of life, for God and his holy angels care for no worldly things, and that does appear (?). For the poor men do sooner work effectually in this art than the rich men. But in this work following clean apparel is necessary, for angels do abide with men and they be clean, and therefore they desire to have clean apparel. And therefore Salomon did speak generally both of the cleanness of the soul and of the cleanness of apparel. And let him that shall work never be idle, lest his heart do the sooner incline to sin. For the scripture says, "Be always doing something lest you be found idle." And let him always pray to God with these prayers following. For the scripture says, "blessed is the servant whom the Lord when he comes shall find waking."




"Blessed is the servant": Matt. 24:46.
the suffumigatyons as heare foloweth */*/*/*/*

The suffumigations as here follows.

The following sections on suffumigations and the names of angels are not found in other manuscripts of Liber Iuratus (S5, S4, or Sl.313). They jump directly to the Orations. I have accordingly placed the text in italics. The section on suffumigations seems to have been taken from Agrippa (1533), or Agrippa's source, Sepher Raziel. The section on the names of the angels is not found in Agrippa.
Thimiamate for the satter daye is all good | things and well smelling roottes as ys cost-| us and herbe thuris, */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*
Thimiamate vpon sounday is masticke, | muscus and suche lyke and all other good


[14v]
gumes of good odoure, as thus, beniamen, | storax, labdanum, ambre armoniacum, | and such lyke */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Thimmiamate for Saturday is all good things and well smelling roots such as costus and the herb thuris.

Thimiamate for Sunday is mastic, musk, and such like, and all other good gums of good odor, as thus, benjamin, storax, labdanum, amber armoniacum, and such like.

OP1.44 (based in turn on Raziel): "a suffumigation of Saturn is all fragrant roots, such as costus and herb frankincense"; "For the Sun is all gums, such as frankincense, mastic, benjamin, storax, ladanum, amber, and musk."
Thimiamate vpon moondaye is folium | mirti, and lawlri, and leues of good odor | of all swet flowers */*/*/*/*/*/*
Thimiamate on the tewsdaye is sanders | the redd blake and white, and all swete | woodes as lygnum aloes cipres, balsami | and such lyke */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Thimiamate on the thowrsdaye is all swe-| te frutes as nuttmuges, cloues, the ryndes | of orenges and citrynes drye and powdred | with suche lyke of good odoure */*/*/*

Thimiamate for Monday is folium mirti, and lawlri, and leaves of good odor of all sweet flowers.

Thimiamate for Tuesday is sanders, the red, black, and white, and all sweet woods as lignum aloes, cypress, balsam, and such like.

Thimiamate for Wednesday is the rinds of all sweete woods, as cinnamon, cassia ligina corticus, lauri, and macis, and all sweet seeds.

Thimiamate for Thursday is all sweet fruits as nutmeg, cloves, the rinds of oranges and citrines, dry and powdered with such like of good odor.

OP: "For the moon are the leaves of all vegetables, such as the indum leaf (malabathrum?), and the leaves of myrtle and laurel"; "of Mars is all fragrant woods, such as sandalwood, cypress, balsam, and lignum aloes"; "For Mercury are the barks of woods and fruits, such as cinnamon, lignum cassia, mace, citrus peel, and laurel seeds, and also all fragrant seeds"; "of Jupiter is all fragrant fruits, such as nutmeg, or cloves."
Thimiamate on the frydaye is mace roses

[15r]
violates and all other frutes or flowers | of good odoure as crocus and suche lyke */*/*/*

Thimiamate for Friday is mace, roses, violets, and all other fruits or flowers of good odor, as crocus and such like.

Agrippa: "For Venus are flowers, such as the rose, violet, crocus and the like."
Hermes sayde of thimiamate, that thimia-| mate of the [Moon] is cinamonium, and lignum | aloes, and masticke, and crocus, and costus, | and maces, and mirtus we put this þt yche | planett haue a partye in it. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Hermes said of thimiamate, of the Moon is cinnamon, lignum aloes, mastic, crocus, costus, maces, and myrtle. We put this that each planet has a part in it.

Compare Agrippa OP1.44: "But Hermes describes the most powerful fume to be, viz. that which is compounded of the seven aromatics, according to the powers of the seven planets, for it receives from Saturn, pepperwort, from Jupiter, nutmeg, from Mars, lignum-aloes, from the Sun, mastic, from Venus, saffron, from Mercury, cinnamon, and from the Moon, the myrtle."
Salomon making a destinctyon upon the | dayes and planettes of the spyce with þe | which aman oughte to make thimiamate, | sayde that of [Saturn] is eche good rootte in good | and euill, of [Jupiter] all frutes, of [Mars] eche tree, | of [Sol] eche gumme, of [Mercury] eche rynde, of [Venus] | eche flowers and odoriferus herbe, of the | [Moon] eche lefe, */*/*/* bacce, cardamonum wax, | put also with ^thes thinges */*/*/*/*/*/*

Solomon, making a distinction upon the days and planets of the spice with which a man ought to make thimiamate, said that of Saturn is each good root in good and evil, of Jupiter all fruits, of Mars each tree, of Sol each gum, of Mercury each rind, of Venus each flower and odoriforus herb, of the Moon each leaf. Bacce, cardamonum wax, put also with these things.

OP1.30: "every thing that bears fruit is from Jupiter, and every thing that bears Flowers is from Venus, all Seed, and Bark is from Mercury, and all roots from Saturne, and all Wood from Mars, and leaves from the Moon."
Hermes sayeth that he founde in an olde | booke þt these were þe more suffumigatyons | thimiamate grecum, masticke, sandalus,

galbanum, muscharlazerat, mirram and | ambram and these be þe collectyons of spir-| ites */*/*/*/* and he saythe there is no suche | suffumigatyon to call spirites as is amb-| ra, lignum aloes, costus muscus crocus | and bloode of a lapwinge wt thimiamate | mixt all to gethere wt equall porcions, so | þt it be odiferus of the goumes. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Hermes says that he found in an old book that these were the more suffumigations: thimiamate grecum, mastic, sandalus, galbanum, muscharlazerat, myrrh, and amber, and these be the collections of spirits. And he says there is no such suffumigation to call spirits as is ambra, lignum aloes, costus muscus, crocus, and the blood of a lapwing, with thimiamate mixed all together in equal portions, so that it be odiferus of the gums.

OP1.43: "And Hermes saith, that there is nothing like the fume of Sperma Ceti [spermaceti] for the raising of spirits: wherefore if a fume be made of that, and Lignum-aloes, Pepperwort, Musk, Saffron, red Storax tempered together, with the blood of a Lapwing, it will quickly gather airy spirits together"
Suffumigacions compounded of sartai-| ne thynges heare foloweth. atrubited vn-| to the planettes. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Suffumigations compounded of certain thinges here follow, attributed to the planet.

Agrippa OP1.44: "The compositions of some fumes appropriated to the planets." For suffumigations of the planets see also Picatrix, Ed. Pingree, pp. 200-2.
For the sonne take saffrone, amber, muske, | lignum, aloes, lignumbalsami, the frutte | of laurell, wt cloues, mir, and thuer equall | porcions so þt it be mixt all to gether after | such manner þt it be veri swete of odour | of the goumes aforsaide, put to this þe | braines of an eygell and the bloude of an | whytte coke suche quantite as yt may be

For the Sun take saffron, amber, musk, lignum, aloes, lignum balsam, the fruit of laurel, with cloves, myrrh, and thuer equal portions, so that it is mixed all together after such manner that it be very sweet of odor of the gums aforesaid. Put to this the brains of an eagle and the blood of an white cock, such quantity as it may be very odiferous as before said. And make it into little balls or pills and keep it very closed from the air or wind for your use.

Agrippa: We make a suffumigation for the Sun in this manner, viz. of saffron, ambergris, musk, lignum-aloes, lignum-balsam, the fruit of the laurel, cloves, myrrh, and frankincense, all which being bruised, and mixed in such a portion as may make a sweet odour, must be incorporated with the brain of an eagle, or the blood of a white cock, after the manner of pills, or trochisks.

For the Moon take the heads of frogs made of the air, which you may gather after some showers of rain, with the eyes of a bull and the seed of white poppy with thure, and camphir, equal portions, mixed all together with sangine menstruo, and the blood of a white gander, such quantity as it may be very odiferus, and lay it safely up for your use as before said.

[CXXXVII 20-22]

Before that, these three prayers following must be said over the blood. You must go [=face] towards Jerusalem, that is, Eastward, and you must say over the blood the exorcism that is [also] said over the salt which is put into holy water. And that must be said three [times], except that the names must be changed thus, "I exorcise thee O thou creature of blood", instead of "... thou creature of salt," which God commanded by Solomon to be put into the seal, instead of which God commanded by his prophet Helyzeus to be put into water, and so forth of the rest, and this exorcism thus said three [times], with a stole [=scarf] about your neck, then say the prayers following thrice. That done, the blood shall be consecrated, and meet [=suitable] for the seal.

This introductory paragraph to the rite of exorcism of blood is "discussed but not given in full" in the Latin manuscripts (Hedegård, p. 17). Also, the Latin manuscripts mention only salt, not substituting blood.

O Invisible God, O Inestimable God, O Ineffable God, O Incommutable God, O Incorruptible God, O most mercifull God, O most Sweet God, O High and Glorious God. O God of infinite mercy, I, although an unworthy sinner, full of iniquity, deceit, and malice, most humbly come to your mercy, praying and beseeching you not to have respect to all and innumerable mine iniquities, but even as you are wont to have mercy upon sinners, and to hear the prayers of the humble and meek, even so I beseech you to vouchsafe to hear me, your servant, although unworthy, yet calling unto you for the blessing and consecrating of this blood, your creature, that it may be made apt and worthy for the ink of your most precious and Holy Seal, and of your name Schemhamphoras, so that it may have the aptnes and meteness which it ought to have by your most holy name, which is written with four letters, Joth, He, Vau, Daleth, Agla, Eloy, Yayin, Theos, Deus, which being heard all celestial, terrestrial, and infernal creatures do tremble, fear, and worship it. And by these your most holy names, On, Alpha and Omega, Principium, El, Ely, Eloe, Eloy, Elion, Sother, Emmanuel, Sabaoth, Adonay, Egge, Ya, Ya, Ye Ye, may this creature of blood be blessed, prepared, and made apt for the ink of your holy seal, and of your most holy name, Schemhamphoras, which is blessed, world without end. Amen.


The exorcism of the blood is not found in the Latin manuscripts, though it is explained in the previous paragraph. Compare this exorcism with that in Scot, Discovery of Witchcraft Book 15, chapter 15.

[I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.]

[XIII. Oratio 7: Symbolum Athanasianum]

"Whoever wishes to be saved [and have the vision of God], should above all things hold to the Catholic faith. Whoevery fails to keep it whole and undefiled, without doubt shall perish everlastingly. And the Catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the persons, nor dividing the substance. For there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Spirit. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit is all one, the glory equal, the majesty coeternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate, and the Holy Ghost uncreate. The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible. The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Ghost eternal. And yet they are not three eternals, but one eternal. As also there are not three uncreates, nor three incomprehensibles, but one uncreate and one incomprehensible. So likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, and the Holy Ghost almighty. And yet they are not three almighties, but one almighty. So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God, and yet they are not three Gods, but one God. So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord, and yet they are not three Lords, but one Lord. For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge every person by himself to be God and Lord, so are we forbidden by the Catholic religion to say there are three Gods or three Lords. The Father is made of none, neither created, nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone, not made nor created, but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son, neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding. So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts. And in this Trinity none is before or after another, none is greater or less than another. But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together, and co-equal. So that in all things, as is aforesaid, the Unity in Trinity and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshipped. He therefore that will be saved must thus think of the Trinity. Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation that he also believe rightly the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the right faith is, that we believe and confess that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man. God, of the substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds; and Man, of the substance of his mother, born in the world. Perfect God, and perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting. Equal to the Father as touching his Godhead, and inferior to the Father as touching his Manhood. Who, although he be God and Man, yet he is not two, but one Christ. One; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh, but by taking of the Manhood into God. One altogether, not by confusion of Substance, but by unity of Person. For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man, so God and Man is one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, rose again the third day from the dead; He ascended into heaven, he sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God, Almighty; from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies; and shall give account for their own works. And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting; and they that have done evil into everlasting fire. This is the Catholic faith, which except a man believe faithfully, he cannot be saved. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."

(This oration is based on the well-known Athanasian Creed (Symbolum Athanasianum.)

1. GH: Dei.

2. GH omits the last 3 words.

3. GH adds: et visionem divinam habere.

4. GH adds: et divinam visionem.

5. GH adds: et visionem divinam, quam nunc petimus.

6. GH adds: cui nunc abrenunciare postulamus.

7. GH omits the rest of the creed, and concludes with: nec hanc divinam visionem optinere quibit.
42 Ego diuina institucione formatus et preceptis | salutaribus imprecatus audebo dicere hic dic | orationem dominicam. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

[XIV. Oration 8]

Following divine instruction, and the teachings of the Saviour +called down+, I dare to say:15

15. The mass introduces the Lord’s Prayer with nearly identical wording: GH considers “imprecatus” (called down, prayed for, uttered curses or blessings) as corrupt.
43 Pater noster qui es in celis, sanctificetur nomen | tuum. adueniat regnum tuum, fiat voluntas tua, | sicut in cælo et in terra. panem nostrum quotid-| ianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nost-| ra: sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris, | et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos | a malo. Amen. */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*
Our Father,1 who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.
1. This of course is the well-known "Lord's Prayer."

[XV. Oration 9.]1

Alpha and Omega, O almighty God, the beginning of all things, without beginning, the ending without an end, hear today my prayers, O most holy one, neither repay me according my iniquity nor my sins, O Lord, my God, but according to your mercy, which is greater than all things visible and invisible. Have mercy on me, the wisdom of the Father, O Christ, the light of the angels, the glory of the saints, the hope and haven and refuge of sinners, the originator of all things and redeemer of human frailties, who holds the weight of heaven and earth, and the seas and mountains in the palm of your hand. I beg and entreat you, O most holy one, that you, being one with the Father, will illuminate my soul with the ray of your most Holy Spirit, (Here recite your petition; if for the divine vision, say as follows:2) that I may be able to progress in this most sacred art, so that I might be worthy to achieve the vision of your face, O God eternal, through the virtue of your most Holy Spirit and of your name. And you, who are are my God, who in the beginning created the heaven and the earth, and all things out of nothing, who through your holy Spirit you restore, fill, and renew all things, heal my soul, that I may glorify you through all my thought, and words, and deeds. O God the Father, strengthen my oration, and increase both my comprehension and my memory, for undertaking your blessed vision while my mortal body is yet living, and for learning the most high and eternal, facing your essence, you who live and reign through the infinite ages of the ages. Amen.

NYNE prayers are sett in the beginninge | which doo last unto this prayer . helisthemaht hazara-| m wherof the firste 8 are a preparatyon of the way to worke | and to prepare the worke to obtayne but the 9 Is off the effect | of this worke as for the fyrst 8 they oughte to be sayd euery | day that yow wil worke very early in the morninge before the bre-| ke of the daye and no more to be sayd that day and the 9 owght | alwayes to be sayd in the beginninge of the prayers that folowe-| th those 8 and in the ende of them also,

NINE prayers are set in the beginning which do last unto this prayer: 'Heliscemaht, hazaram' (XVI) whereof the first 8 are a preparation of the way to work and to prepare the work to obtaine, but the 9 is of the effect of this work. As for the first 8, they ought to be said every day that you will work, very early in the morning before the break of the day, and no more to be said that day. And the 9 ought always to be said in the beginning of the prayers that followeth those 8, and in the end of them also.

Novem orationes sunt in principio posite usque ad illam orationem: 'Helistemaht, hazaram...', quarum octo sunt preparacio vie [S4 fol 121v] ad operandum et preparacio operis ad obtinendum, sed nona est prima oratio de intrincesitate huius operis. de octo dico [tibi] quod summo mane paululum ante crepusculum matutinum ante incepcionem operis cuiuslibet diei ipse sunt proferrendae, et non oportet de tota die amplius, de nona dico, quod semper in principio orandi per orationes alias ab illis octo praedictis et in fine est proferenda.
after that there be othere 8 | prayers folowing which be called the 8 termes and the be good | to cause yow to obtayne your request at godes hande, so upon þe | fryday after that yow haue truly repented your selfe and confe-| ssyd yow shall fast breade and water and very early in the mor-| ninge before the breke of the daye thow shalt say 10 prayers | which thow shalte fynde wrytten after that Is to say the 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, and these muste ye saye | wt greate deuocyon.

After that there be 8 other prayers following, which be called the 8 terms, [or "Ends"] and they be good to cause you to obtain your request at God's hand, so upon the Friday after you have truly repented yourself and confessed, you shall fast bread and water, and very early in the morning before the break of the day, thou shalt say 10 prayers which thou shalt find written after, that is to say, the 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32. And these must ye say with great devotion.

After that yow shall pawse a whyle remem-| bring your petycion and rehersing It and then shall ye saye | the 8 termes afore wrytten and in the ende of euery terme | yow shall powse a lytle and reherse your petycyon. After þt

[45r]
when yow haue thus donne once in the morninge yow must doo | so agayne abowt the 3 hower, and lykewyse abowt the middaye & | then yow may dyne.

After that you shall pause a while, remembering your petition and rehearsing it, and then shall ye say the 8 terms afore written, and in the end of every term you shall pause a little and rehearse your petition. After that, when you have thus done once in the morning, you must do so again about the 3 hour, and likewise about the midday, and then you may dine.

the day folowinge þt is to saye upon | satturday yow moste doo euen as ye did the day before in any | wyse upon the sonday yow shall doo lykewyse sauinge þt yow | shall nott fast but that yow may eatte fyshe or fleshe as ye | will but moderately, then after noñe that Is to saye when | ye haue prayed 3 tymes then in the nyghte folowinge shall be | reuelyd unto yow by an angell whether yow shall obtayne your pe-| tycyon or noo.

The day following, that is to say upon Saturday, you must do even as ye did the day before. In any wise upon the Sunday you shall do likewise, saving that you shall not fast, but that you may eat fish or flesh as ye will, but moderately. Then after noon, that is to say when ye have prayed 3 times, then in the night following shall be revealed unto you by an angel, whether you shall obtain your petition or no.

yf your petycyon be graunted then shall ye doo as yow | shall be tawght in this booke, and yf hit be denyed then shall yow | awayte another tyme and in the meane whyle ye shall prepare | your selfe better that yow may obtayne your petycyon:

If your petition be granted, then shall ye do as you shall be taught in this book, and if it be denied, then shall you await another time, and in the meanwhile ye shall prepare yourself better, that you may obtain your petition.

But | here is to be noted that this prayer O Jesu the sonne | etc. with that prayer that foloweth Elyminator, be cause it | Is parte of the same prayer owght to be sayde thryse after | euery tyme of your prayinge softely and allwayes at the | ende of them to reherse your petycyon, then yf þt be put | backe that thow doest nott obtayne, then doo as yow dyd the | fryday saturday and sonday before sauynge that upon the | sonday in stede of your fast yow shall geue almose to 3 poore | folke charytably and wt good deuocyon.

But here is to be noted that this prayer, "O Jesus the Son ...," etc. [XXVI] with that prayer that followeth, "Eleminator ..." [XXVII] because it is part of the same prayer ought to be said thrice after every time of your praying, softly and always at the end of them to rehearse your petition; then if that be put back that thou dost not obtain, then do as you did the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before, saving that upon the Sunday instead of your fast, you shall give alms to three poor folk charitably and with good devotion.

after that in the fyrst | moone that Is to say the munday folowinge doo as ye dydest | before and after the same maner lykewyse the 2, 3, and 4 | moone or munday and so euen to the ende that peraduenture | god will haue mercy upon the, but in the latter prayers þu | must change thy petycyon that is to saye þu shallte nott | desyer of god to graunte the thy petycyon butt onely that | he wyll haue mercy upon the.

After that in the first moon, that is to say the Monday following, do as ye didst before, and after the same manner. Likewise the 2, 3, and 4 moon or Monday, and so even to the end that peradventure God will have mercy upon thee, but in the latter prayers thou must change thy petition, that is to say, thou shalt not desire of God to grante thee thy petition, but only that he will have mercy upon thee.

And It Is to be noted th-| at he that will saye those prayers or suche lyke | must be chaste and cleane and he must say them | with greate deuocyon and he that doth otherwyse | he shall be openly plaged of god, in those greke,

[45v]
hebrue and chaldey prayrs there be the most sacred and hooly na-| mes of god and his holy angells which owght nott to be spoken | of man but only thorow the mercy of godd, and when thow | arte put bakke of thy request thow oughtst not to dispayre | but truely to confesse thy selffe and not to dissemble with god | and to serche thy conscyence thorowly and to geue almose la-| rgely, and to cause dyuerse massys to be sayd, and to say dyu-| ers prayers knelyng upon thy knees and with bitter teeres | to entrete and besiche almighty god to be mercyful unto þe | ffor thus were the wyse men wont to doo to cume to theyr | purpose.

And it is to be noted that he that will say those prayers or such like must be chaste and clean, and he must say them with great devotion, and he that doth otherwise he shall be openly plagued of God. In those Greek, Hebrew, and Chaldaic prayers there be the most sacred and holy names of God and his holy angels, which ought not to be spoken of man but only through the mercy of God, and when thou art put back of thy request thou oughtest not to dispair, but truly to confess thyself and not to dissemble with God, and to search thy conscience thoroughly, and to give alms largely, and to cause diverse masses to be said, and to say diverse prayers kneeling upon thy knees and with bitter tears to entreat, and beseech almighty God to be merciful unto thee for thus were the wise men wont to do to come to their purpose.

Yff Adonay that Is to say, allmyghty god doo graun-| te the thy request or petycyon that Is | to say revele unto the in thy slepe that thow shalt obtayne | then must þu worke as here after folowythe, that is to saye þe | 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32 of the moone in the morning thow | shallte say these prayers folowynge oonce abowt 3 of the | cloke oonce abowt 9 of the cloke and oonce at euening þt is to say | assaylemaht and nazaihemaht lameht leynaht, | O most high and Inuisible god theos, and I beseche the o | my lorde and that which Is the prologge that Is to saye | o most hyghe and Inuisible god, but that those 3 fyrst | prayers are of the secretes of this arte, alpha et omega | and helischemaht and theos megale patir with | there prologe o almyghte and euerlastinge god the | father the lyght which ought to be sayd after yt must be sa-| yd fyrst

[LI. The first purification.]1

IF ADONAY, that is to say, almighty God, do grant thee thy request or petition, that is to say, reveal unto thee in thy sleep that thou shalt obtain, then must thou work as hereafter followeth, that is to say, the 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, and 32 of the Moon in the morning thou shalt say these prayers following once about 3 of the clock, once about 9 of the clock, and once at evening, that is to say, "Assaylemaht and nazaihemaht lameht leynaht, O most high and invisible God theos", and "I beseech thee O my Lord", and that which is the prolog, that is to say, "O most high and invisible God," but that those 3 first prayers are of the secrets of this art, "Alpha et Omega" and "helischemaht" and "Theos megale patir" with their prolog "O almighty and everlasting God, the father the light" which ought to be said after that [which] must be said first.


1. S4: Prima Mundacio.
and after that lett hassailemaht be sayd but | yow must fyrst pawse a lytle and reherse your petycyon þt | same most holy prayer lameht ragna with his parte | folowinge Semeht Segaht with his prologge ought to | be sayd the fyrst daye of the moone 4 tymes that Is to | saye early in the morning abowt 3 of the cloke oonce,

And after that let "hassailemaht" be said. But you must first pause a little and rehearse your petition that same most holy prayer "lameht ragna" with his part following "Semeht Segaht" with his prolog ought to be said the first day of the Moon 4 times, that is to say, early in the morning about 3 of the clock once, about 9 of the clock, 3 about midday, 3, and the 3 moonday ye must say it thrice, that is to say in the morning once, about 9 of the clock once, and about the midday once.

The 3rd day of the moon it must be said 3 in the morning once, about 9 of the clock once, and about 12 of the clock once.

The 6th day of the moon it must be said twice, that is, at 9 of the clock once, and at 12.

The 9th day it must be said 3 in the morning 3, at 9 of the clock 3, and 3 at 12.

The 12th day it must be said 3 in the morning 3, at 9 of the clock 3, 3 at noon, and 3 at night.

The 15th day it must be said 3 in the morning [3], at 9 of the clock 3, at 12 of the clock 3, and 3 at night.

And upon the 18th day, 21st day, and the 23rd, 26th, 29th, and 30th days ye must say them even as you did upon the 15th day. But note that this prayer must be said in great chastity and cleanness.

it is good to be sayde | also agaynst all perrylles and daungers of fyer beastes and | dyuells but then yow nyde not haue respecte to the day our | hower, but that most holy prayer hazaram hihel wt his | 4 partes folowinge which be these hihelma helma & | c. agloros theomythos and c, megal agal and | c. hamicchiahel and c. with there prologges which are | these confyrme strengthen and c. almyghty and euerlastinge | god and c. o the truthe the waye and c. I wretched synner & | c. as the ly be fore in order owght to be sayd plesauntely and | with good deuocyon after the forsayd prayers lameth ra-| gua the same dayes and howers excepte hit be in one | cause that when your petycyon Is for sume great busy-| nes as to speke with sprytes or to se the deyte, then it | ought nott to be sayd but oonce that is to say in the morn-| inge

It is good to be said also against all perils and dangers of fire, beasts, and devils, but then you need not have respect to the day or hour, but that most holy prayer "Hazaram hihel ..." [chap XXXI] with his 4 parts following, which be these, "Hihelma helma ..." [XXXII], "Agloros theomythos ..." [XXXIV], "Megal agal ..." [XXXV], "Hamicchiahel ..." [XXXVII], with their prologs, which are these, "Confirm, strengthen ..." [XXXIII], "Almighty and everlasting God ..." [XXXIVb], "O the truth, the way, ..." [XXXVI], "I, wretched sinner..." [XXXVIII], as they lie before in order, ought to be said pleasantly and with good devotion after the foresaid prayers "Lameth ragna ..." [XXVIII] the same days and hours, except it be in one cause that when your petition is for some great business as to speak with spirits or to see the Deity, then it ought not to be said but once, that is to say in the morning.

but when yow aske for scyence or knoledge or to be | saued from euylles, or for the knoledge of the heauens & | angells and there seales or suche thinges then muste ye [46v] doo as Is afore sayde of lameht . ragna . and this pray-| er hathe the same effycacye and strengthe that lameht . | ragna . hathe and sumwhat more specyall or that Is better | excepte it be in case þt yow wil aske of þe celestyall sprytes any | greate or harde thinge as to come doune and speke to a man or | ells to constrayne the sprytes of þe ayer or of þe earthe to cume | and obey yow

But when you ask for science or knowledge, or to be saved from evils, or for the knowledge of the heavens and angels and their seals, or such things, then must ye do as is aforesaid, of "lameht ragna" [XXVIII] and this prayer hath the same efficacy and strength that "lameht ragna" hath, and somewhat more special, or that is better, except it be in case that you will ask of the celestial spirits any great or hard thing, as to come down and speak to a man, or else to constrain the spirits of the air or of the earth, to come and obey you.

and this prayer Semoht . Gehel . and þe other | Almyghty And euerlasting Gog, [sic] and this other pra-| yer, Semoht lamen, with this O Jesu, shall be sayde in | those dayes in the which þe other owght nott to be sayde as Is | before appoynted that the shulde not be sayde as þe 2 day of þe | moone the 5, 7, 14, and so forthe of other as Is apperythe | before and not yf any man hathe any greate cause beforre | a Iudge which cane nott be determyned, then þe daye before | he shall go to þe courte to playte his cause lett him fast breade | and water and after lett him saye twysy these 3 prayers | folowinge softely Semoht Gehel and cc. Almighty | And euerlasting God and Semoht lamen, and | there shall be suche wysdome and eloquence gyuen him in | propownding of his cause þt he shall soune obtayne but he | must be chast and clene also yow ought to say this prayer | with lameht Ragna, when any spryte is called and | dothe come that yow may auoyde þe perylls and daunger | and to abtayn wysdome and eloquence to speke boldely | unto the sprite that Is called.

And this prayer "Semoht Gehel" [XXXIX] and the other "Almighty and everlasting God" [XL], and this other prayer "Semoht lamen" [XLI] with this "O Jesu" [XXVI] shall be said in those days in the which the other ought not to be said, as is before appointed that they should not be said as the 2nd day of the moon, the 5, 7, 14, and so forth of other, as appears before. And note, if any man hath any great cause before a judge which can not be determined, then the day before he shall go to the court to plead his cause, let him fast bread and water, and after let him say twice these 3 prayers following softly: "Semoht Gehel..." [XXXIX], "Almighty and everlasting God..." [XL], and "Semoht lamen..." [XLI], and there shall be such wisdom and eloquence given him in propounding of his cause that he shall soon obtain. But he must be chaste and cleane. Also you ought to say this prayer with "lameht Ragna..." [XXVIII] when any spirit is called and doth come, that you may avoid the perils and danger and to obtain wisdom and eloquence to speak boldly unto the spirit that is called.

Now Seing that he | shall doo no other thinge althought he hathe done nor th-| ought upon any syne yet lett him contynually pray upon | god in other howers then in the fyrst appoynted howres | with the 6, 10, and 12 prayers and in the morning lett | him go to the chyrche and as he goeth lett hym saye the | 16 prayer and in the chyrche lett hym saye the 22 pra-

[47r]
yer and also þe 14, 24, 21, 32, 33, 34, 29, 30, and so lett hym doo | contynually by þe space of 20 dayes, and lett hym alwayes | take dylygent hyede that he fall in to no syn, and yf by cha-| nce he fall into syn lett him forthewith repent and be confess-| ed and yf he cane lett him fast contynually yf nott lett him | release the oone, but by the space of 7 in order he must fa-| st and abstayne from all dedely syn

[LII.]

Now seeing that he shall do no other thing although he hath done, nor thought upon any sin, yet let him continually pray upon God in other hours than in the first appointed hours, with the 6th, 10th, and 12th prayers, and in the morning let him go to the church, and as he goeth let him say the 16th prayer, and in the church let him say the 22nd prayer, and also the 14, 24, 21, 32, 33, 34, 29, 30, and so let him do continually by the space of twenty days, and let him always take diligent heed that he fall into no sin, and if by chance he fall into sin, let him forthwith repent and be confessed, and if he can, let him fast continually; if not let him release the one, but by the space of 7 in order he must fast1 and abstain from all deadly sin.

1. I.e. he should fast every other day for at least seven days.
then lett hym haue awa-| re and a faythfull priste which may saye unto hym matters | pryme and howres and a masse of the holy gost and in his int-| royt lett hym say þe 13 prayer, and after the offertory the 9 | prayer, then take francumsence and incense and cence the alter | saying þe first prayer and be cause the holy fathers did trust in þe | sayntes þt were there named therfore thei did so, and yf he that | shall worke haue more douocyon to any other sayntes then be ther | named lett hym change name for name for faythe dothe alwa-| yes worke as I sayd before

Then let him have a wary and a faithful priest which may say unto him matters prime and hours, and a mass of the Holy Ghost, and in his introit let him say the 13th prayer, and after the offertory the 9th prayer. Then take frankincense and incense and cense the altar saying the first prayer, and because the holy fathers did trust in the saints that were there named, therefore they did so, and if he that shall work have more devotion to any other saints, then be there named, let hym change name for name, for faith doth always work, as I said before.

then lett þe 2 prayer be sayde In-| imedyatly and after te igiter in the masse lett be sayd the 3, 4, | 5, 7, 8 prayers and so in consecrating of þe body of chryst, let the | pryst praye for hym þt shall worke, þt thorow the grace of god | he may obtayn the effecte of his petycyon and so must þe pryst | doo in all his prayers that he shall saye for hym þt shall worke | but adde nothinge ells to then [sic], also after þt poscconione þe pryst | shall saye the 26 prayer and after masse he that shall worke | shall receue þe sacrment [sic] sayng the 19 and 20 prayer, but lett | hym take hide þt he receue nott þe body of chryst for an euille | purpose, for þt were dethe unto him, wherfore sum man haue | entytuled this booke callinge It þe dethe of þe soule and þt is trew | to them that worke for an euil entente and purpose & nott to | haue sume scyence or sume good thinge, for þe lorde sayeth aske & | It shall be geuen yow seke & ye shall fynde & in an other place | he sayeth where 2 or 3 are gatheryd to gether in my name I ame [47v] in the myddest of them and euery thing that thei shall | aske the father in my name and he will fullfyll and doo it.

Then let the 2nd prayer be said immediately and after te igiter in the mass; let be said the 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 prayers and so in consecrating of the body of Christ, let the priest pray for him that shall work that through the grace of God he may obtain the effect of his petition. And so must the priest do in all his prayers that he shall say for him that shall work, but add nothing else to them. Also after the communion the priest shall say the 26 prayer, and after mass he that shall work shall receive the sacrament saying the 19th and 20th prayer. But let him take heed that he receive not the body of Christ for an evil purpose, for that were death unto him, wherefore some men have entitled this book calling it The Death of the Soul, and that is true to them that work for an evil intent and purpose, and not to have some science or some good thing; for the Lord sayeth "Ask, and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall finde," and in another place he sayeth "where 2 or 3 are gathered together in my name, I am in the midst of them and everything that they shall ask the father in my name and he will fulfill and do it."

The prayers whereof sum are named before | and sume here after are thes.

[LIII]

The prayers, whereof some are named before and some hereafter, are these:

Agla the lighte the truthe the lyfe and the waye | mercyfull Iudge the way the strengthe by thy | pacyence conserue and helpe me :::: Hic recita peticyoñem | sed per deitate dic ut sequitur:::: and helpe me in this holy | visyon and for thy greate mercy haue mercye upon me, | and for the service of this Holy fumygatyon, and for this | Holy sacrafyce of or lorde Iesus Christ and by the merytes of | the gloryous virgin marye mother of thy sone owr lord Iesus | christ and by the merytes of the Holy apostells, peter, paule, | andrew, Iames, philip, bartholemew, mathew, Symon, | thadee, lyne, clete, clement, sextus, cornelius, cypriane, | laurenes, grisogone, Ihon, and paule, cosme, and damya-| ne, and all thy sayntes thorow whose merytes and prayer-| s. :::: Hic recita petycyonem tuam sed per deita dic ut seq-| uitur :::: thow wilte graunte me thy holy visyon thorow the | sonne owr lorde Iesus christ. Amen.

And let him always remember God, and pray unto Him for the forgiveness of his sins, for God is righteous and ought to be feared, for he that doth not love Him, as Solomon sayeth, "the beginning of wisdom is to fear God."1 Therefore every man ought to fear him, for no man of his own worthiness or goodness doth deserve or doth get glory or health nor can see God without grace of his savior. And again let him fast other twelve days bread and water wholly, without any other refection [i.e. respite], doing as he did before in the other days until he come to the thirteenth day, which must be a Thursday. And then again if he perceive any wickedness or sin in himself, let him purge it, and then again receive the body of Christ, saying:

And know that no man that is troubled with worldly things can do this thing, for the soul, by means of earthly blindness is utterly sequestrate from all godly secrets. Therefore it doth very hardly understand them but so much the more as the flesh doth consent to the works of the spirit, so much the sooner and easier doth it understand the secret mysteries. And therefore, they that found out these sciences did the more abide in secret places, because they would not through worldly temptations be let from their works. And if he that shall work but for a part of this science must be sequestered from worldly things, how much the more ought he to abstain that shall work for the whole.

Then let him put on a haircloth next to his skin, and black cloths, and so go into the choir and there sit, then let him begin the Psalter with the litany and the proper prayers following, and all other as I said before, and when he hath done, let him say these names following:

Hosannah in the highest," which to be Lord over mankind camest out of Heaven down to the Earth.

OrHa, which be Gabriel in the temple of Jerusalem didst give knowledge to Mary the virgin thy mother of the beginning of thy incarnation.

Hospsk, which madst the dry rod to florish in the hands of Joseph.

GofGar, by which John the Baptist didst send unto thy people of Israel testimony and foreknowledge of thy coming by preaching of those things which were spoken of thee and of thy birth by the prophets and didst send a light unto men sitting in darkness by the which they knew thy holy coming.

Octynnomos, which didst send the first star to the three kings, Jaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar, who came to worship thee, and thou didst receive their gifts, showing thyself unto them to be truly God and mortal man, and shewest unto them in their sleep by thy angel the falsehood of Herod, which hast crowned gloriously in Heaven the holy innocents who suffered for thy name.

Elyorem, which being presented unto God in the temple of Jerusalem by the hands of Simeon, gavest unto the same Simeon the effect of knowledge as he doth witness himself, saying, "now Lord lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people alight to lighten the Gentile's and the glory of the people of Israel."

Theloy, which at the marriage of a certain ruler didst turn water into wine.

Rabuch, which by the space of forty days didst fast in the desert, and there were tempted of the devil, who didst remit and forgive Mary Magdaline weeping most bitterly at thy feet wiping them with her hair and annointing them all her sins, and didst raise again from death Lazarus her brother who had lain dead four days, and gavest sight unto him that was born blind, and didst vouchsafe thy body to be sacrificed to be drawn cruelly, to be entreated and spitefully to be judged, and to be blasphemed, and to be bitterly wipped with sharp cords, to be vexed with buffets and spittings, to be crowned with thorns, to be nailed to the cross with sharp nails both hand and foot, to drink vinegar and gall, and thy side to be opened with a spear and to be laid in thy grave, and to be kept of soldiers and all for us miserable sinners, which by thy mighty power and with the sign of thy holy cross with the which I do now sign me with mine own hands.

Then let him sleep, and after that speak no more, and so he shall see the celestial palace and the majesty of God in his glory, and the nine orders of angels, and the companies of all blessed spirits. But some man will say, because God doth say "man shall not see Me and live," it followeth then that he that seeth God must nides die bodily, then he shall no more rise till the Day of Judgement, for no man dieth bodily twice, but it is false that a man should die bodily, because he seeth the Deity, for the spirit is carried into Heaven, and the body is fed in the Earth with angel's food or meat. For we read of many who have been ravished in spirit to whom many celestial secrets hath been revealed, for at the time of the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ many bodies did rise, as we read.

He þt shall worke mvst be willinge in his worke & vtterli | clensed ffrom all fylthynes ffor þe more he suffereth þe more | he shall obtayne for yf or superyour þt Is it saye christ w-| olde suffer for his subiectes & inferyours bo cause [sic] he wo-| lde glorefy them in his sighte, muche more owght þe infer y-| our suffer for him selffe þt he may please his lorde, ffor | þe sighte of þe deyte will nott be hadd wt owt perfett pure-| nes for he will nott constrayned but prayed vnto and | entreatyd & yet it wil be very harde to obtayn it, for | þe lorde hathe geuen þe earth to men, & þe knowledge of | his law as dauyd testefyeth sayinge þe heaven of heav-| ens is þe lordes, but þe earthe hathe he gyven to þe son-| nes of men, & in another place take hide my people | vnto my law & because faythe dothe nott merytt wh-| ere man is able to proue it by naturall reason therfor | it is þe hardest thinge for a man to see þe deyte or deuyen | maiestye because it is a thinge supernaturall */*/*/*

He that shall work must be willing in his work and utterly cleansed from all filthiness, for the more he suffereth the more he shall obtain, for if our superior, that is to say Christ, would suffer for his subjectes and inferiors because he would glorify them in his sight, much more ought the inferior suffer for himself, that he may please his Lord. For the sight of the Deity will not be had without perfect pureness, for he will not be constrained, but prayed unto and entreated. And yet it will be very hard to obtain it, for the Lord hath given the Earth to men, and the knowledge of His Law, as David testifieth, saying, "the Heaven of Heavens is the Lord's, but the Earth hath he given to the sons of men," and in another place, "take heed my people unto my law." And because faith doth not merit where man is able to prove it by natural reason therefore it is the hardest thing for a man to see the Deity or Divine Majesty, because it is a thing supernatural.

In thys worke lett never man remember deathe. | for thorow þe vertues of prayer & þe power of god in | whome he hathe his hoole trust his body is made as

[65r]
It were a spirytuall bodye & he shall be fedd wt spiry-| tuall meate evyn as þe younge crowes or younge ra-| vens whome god of his mercye dothe noryshe as | dauyd testfyeth saying he dothe gyue þe oxe meat & þe | younge ravens or crowes þt call vpon him but lett him | þt shall worke beware þt he be in noo deadly synn for | yf he be he shall be mad ever after, & this is þe cause for | his vnderstandinge, which commeth from þe soule the | which dothe desyer to see god in whom it delytethe, & | dothe nott see him thorow þe Impedyment of synn do | the never after remember any other thinge, & therfo-| re as conseruinge his bodye he is an vnresonable | creature, & soo lykewyse we see many which be abstr-| act because they cane nott obtayne þe thinge þt they | wolde haue. god therfore of his Infynyte goodenes | graunte vs grace to cum to þe sighte of his deyte | which lyueth in þe trynite of personnes and in the | vnyte of substance worlde wt owt ende. Amen. */*/*

In this work let never man remember death. For through the virtues of prayer and the power of God in whom he hath his whole trust, his body is made as it were a spiritual body, and he shall be fed with spiritual meat, even as the young crows or young ravens whom God of his mercy doth nourish, as David testifieth, saying, "He doth give the ox meat and the young ravens or crows that call upon him." But let him who shall work beware that he be in no deadly sin, for if he be he shall be mad ever after, and this is the cause, for his understanding, which cometh from the soul, the which doth desire to see God in whom it delighteth, and doth not see him through the impediment of sin do the never after remember any other thing. And therefore as conserving his body he is an unreasonable creature, and so likewise we see many which be abstract because they cannot obtain the thing that they would have. God therefore of His Infinite Goodness grant us grace to come to the sight of his Deity, who liveth in the Trinity of Persons and in the Unity of substance, world without end. Amen.

[CII.] Of the chapters of the first book.

Now that ye be taught to come to the sight of the Deity, and of the knowledge of the Divine Power, of washing away of your sins, and of establishing of yourself that ye fall not into mortal sin, and of the redemption of three souls out of purgatory, now will we treat of purgatory. But if any man will work for any of these four, do as is before said for the vision of the Deity, but you must change your petition from "the sight of the Deity," into the petition of "the knowledge of the Divine Power," or into the petition of "remission of sins," or into "the establishing of grace," or "for the redemption of three souls out of purgatory." And so without doubt thou shalt the more easier obtain it. And note, if thou wilt work for all these things aforesaid, then thou must say every day the aforesaid Eight Termes with these ten prayers: 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 32. For these thou shalt regard neither the Moon nor the hour, but shalt especially say them in the morning and about three of the clock, and about midday, for these prayers do bring again to right whatsoever a man through his frailty hath wrought amiss, and the more and oftener they be said so much the more is the fault amended, and saved from erring.

Now that we have done with the vision of the Deity, and of the nine orders of angels, now let us begin to treat of the second angels, whose nature is such that they do principally serve God, and after that, man whom they do naturally love. And they do reign in the spheres of the stars, and they do take upon them a firey body when they be sent by the commandment of God to man in this world that be cleansed and purified to company with them, and to comfort them. And of them there are seven sorts whose natures ought to be known, for every one of them hath his proper office appointed him although they may at some time take some other office.

[And there are four demons under them: a king and his three ministers, and all the other demons of the moon are obedient to those, and placed under them, and they are these: Harthan, the king, Bileth, Milalu, Abucaba, which rule the demons of the West wind, which are five: Hebethel, Arnochap, Oylol, Milau, Abuchaba, they may be compelled to serve, or they rest.]1

Omitted in R, but found in the Latin editions: "et habent 4 demones sub se, unum regem et tres eius ministros, quibus omnes alii demones Lune obediunt et eciam supponuntur, 4 et isti sunt Harthan rex, Bileth, Milalu, Abucaba, qui demones in ventis zephiro subditis, [qui] sunt 5, Hebethel, Arnochap, Oylol, Milau, Abuchaba, penantur vel requiescunt."

Here ffolowith the makinge of the cyrcle */*/*/*/*

[CXII.] Here followeth the making of the circle.

Now that yow haue dwe knowledge of there nature | power, regyon, and forme when þu wilte call them | þu shallt doo thus, take harde stonnes, and playne in the wh-| ich there Is neyther hoole nor ryft or ells, tyles specyally | made for that purpose, and lett him that shall make them be

[69v]
cleane from all pollucyons, and lett him haue lyme & | sande of the seae banke mengled to gether wherwt he | shall Ioyne the stonnes, then of them he shall make a | place wherin the cercle shall be drawen, and this place | shall thus be fashyoned ffyrst lett the cercle be equall wt | the earth having in lengthe and brede .14. foete wt in þe | which make a croked cercle lyke halfe a cercle higher then | the other, in length and breade contayning .7. foote, & | in heyght .3. ffoote and an halffe, yet be cawse of pover-| ty this place may be made of clene earthe thinke or cley | yf it be well purged so that there be no ryft or breke in | It, and when the place for the cercle Is fynished then | he that shall worke as I sayd be fore muste be clensyd | or purged as Is declared in the first clensinge but yor | petycyon must be alteryd or changed, for the prist w-| hyle he dothe consecrate the bodye of christ must saye | thys prayer ffolowinge */*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*/*

Now that you have due knowledge of their nature, power, region, and form, when thou wilt call them thou shalt do thus:

Take hard stones, and plain (i.e. uniform), in the which there is neither hole nor rift, or else tiles specially made for that purpose, and let him that shall make them be clean from all pollutions, and let him have lime and sand of the sea bank mingled together wherewith he shall join the stones. Then of them he shall make a place wherein the circle shall be drawn, and this place shall thus be fashioned:

First let the circle be equal with the earth, having in length and breadth fourteen [*nine]1 feet, within the which make a crooked circle like half a circle, higher than the other in length and breadth, containing seven feet, and in height three feet and an half.

Yet because of poverty this place may be made of clean earth think or clay if it be well purged, so that there be no rift or break in it. And when the place for the circle is finished, then he that shall work as I said before must be cleansed or purged as is declared in the first cleansing, but your petition must be altered or changed. For the priest while he doth consecrate the body of Christ must say this prayer following:

1. Per S4, GH.
O thow lorde Iesu christ god and man which diddest | votsaffe by thyne owne selffe to visytt thy faythfull | people to there health I humbly besiche the, pray the, | and desyer the, euyn thyn owne sellffe whom I doo n-| ow holde in my handes for thy servant .N. that th-| orow the gyfte and permyssyon of thy grace all those | angells whome he shall call to haue there cowncell it

O thou Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, who didst vouchsafe by thine own self to visit thy faithful people to their health, I humbly beseech thee, pray thee, and desire thee, even thine own self whom I do now hold in my hands, for thy servant .N., that through the gift and permission of thy grace, all those angels whom he shall call to have their council it would please thee to send them and constrain them, that by the means of thee he may mercifully company with them.

[CXIII.] The First Day:

Who, as I said before, after he hath received the body of Christ, shall depart out of the church, saying continually the Seventeenth Prayer, until he come to the place of the circle.

The Consecrating of the Circle

Then let him bless the circle, saying the Fifteenth Prayer, and that day he shall do no more.

[CXIV.] The Second Day.

He shall go to the church and after complain he shall go the circle saying again the Seventeenth Prayer, and let him have a pair of censors with coals in them whereupon he shall cast pearls, and with them he shall perfume the place out of the which he will call, and the four parts of the world, heaven, and earth thrice, saying the First and Second Prayer.

This done thrice, going about the circle and perfuming it, beginning at that place out of the which thou wilt call and there ending again, thou shalt name the angels for the which thou wilt work with the angels of the day and hour, month, time, and the face in the which thou wilt work saying:

Michael, Miel, Saripiel, [Gabriel, Michael, Samyel, Athitael, Boel, Cafziel, Michrathon, Sathquyel, Raphael, Pahamcociel, Assassayel, Samael, Satiel, Yturaihel, Amabihel, Raphael, Caphael, Dardiel, Hurathapel, Hanael, Raquiel, Salguiel]2 peace doth overcome, a gift subdueth, patience getteth the victory, humility doth nourish concord, I therefore, N. the son of N. and N., humbling myself unto you, give me peace unto you thus doing, I give my gift unto you that you being pacified and patient may gently grant the petitions which by God's means and sufferance I shall ask of you.

This done, draw two circles whereof the one shall be a foot from the other, and it must be done with a new knife. And write in the compass the names of the angels of the hour, of the day, of the month, of the time, and of the face, saying:

Come all ye angels .N. peaceably unto the seat of Samaym which the Lord commanded the tribes of Israel to the increase of his honor, wherefore I do invocate and call you, O ye .N., as Zebedie commanded his subjects to obey. Therefore come.

[CXV.] The third day.

Being bathed, and having upon you a clean shirt or linen, having also white apparel, and being clean shaven from the hairs of your body, having your face toward the part out of the which you will call, standing upright without the circle, you shall thus begin:

The Preparation to the Invocation

Have the Seal of God in thy right hand, clean [i.e. neatly] made and consecrated, and then perfume thy circle, doing and saying as I told thee before, and then perfume the seal and also thyself, and then kneel down and say the Thirty-first Prayer, with the prayer of Solomon the Forty-ninth, "Rothon, [*Fothon] Maker of Heaven and Earth, and etc."

[Addition.]

Thou shalt add in the end of every prayer, "... that I may friendly be accompanied with thy holy angels which through the sufferance of thy most blessed Will may fulfill all my just desires and requests."

Manuscript R omits the rest of Liber Juratus, which includes more instructions on the invocation of angels, details on the spirits of the air, of the 4 cardinal directions, and the earth. Instead it appends the following material evidently derived from de Abano's Heptameron and Agrippa's de occulta philosophia. Curiously however, Agrippa (book III chap. 29) in turn quotes from "Peter Apponus [Petrus d'Abano] ... as delivered by Honorius of Thebes."

Invocacio angelorum.

Ecce formacionem seculi. spiritus autem spiritum vocat. Amor dei nos coniungat, sua potencia nos dirigat, sua misericordia nos coniunctos misericorditer nos custodiat. // Vos igitur nomine illius dei vivi et veri qui vos et me verbo creavit, cuius nomina sunt tremenda que sunt 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, Quoniam magnus altissimus sanctissimus excellentissimus potentissimus, fortis, iustus, [col. 2] pius, clemens, dulcis, adiutor, protector, defensor, largitor, misericors, cuius potencia ineffabilis, cuius substancia indivisibilis, sciencia inestimabilis, veritas incommutabilis, misericordia incommensurabilis, essencia incorruptibilis. Cuius gloriose gracie pleni sunt celi et terra. Cuius forti potencie genuflectuntur omnia celestia terrestria et infernalia vos invoco humiliter et deposco ut vos infra circulos hic circumscriptos descendere dignemini apparentes in forma benivola, de omnibus quesitis michi veritatem respondentes.

Invocation of the angels.

O you mighty angels of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon:1 Boel, Cafziel, Micrathon, [Saterquiel,] Satquiel, Raphael, Paamchociel, Asassaiel, Samael, Satiel, Yturaiel, Amabiel, Raphael, Caphael, Dardiel, Hurathaphel, Anael, Raquiel, Salguyel, Michael, Miel, Sarapiel, Gabriel, Michael, Samyel, Athithael, mighty in heaven, iin the clouds, and in the abyss.

Here, with an open hand, raise the Seal of God towards heaven, saying:

Behold the design of the world. Whereupon the Spirit calls the spirit. May the love of God join us, may his power direct us, may his mercy mercifully guard our union. You therefore, through the name of that living and true God who created you and me with the word, whose names are terrible, which are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, Because the great, most high, most holy, most distinguished, most powerful, strong, just, blessed, merciful, sweet, helper, protector, defender, generous giver, merciful, whose power is indescribable, whose nature is indivisible, whose knowledge is priceless, whose truth is unchangeable, whose mercy is immeasurable, whose essence is incorruptible, of whose glorious grace the heavens and earth are full,2 before whose mighty power all the heavens, lands, and infernal realms kneel, I humbly invoke and beseech you, that you may condescend to come down and appear here before this circle in a perceptible and agreeable form, to answer truly all my questions. I order you through the virtue of that one, whose name is marked. Amen.

2. From the Sanctus prayer, adapted from Isaiah 6:3.

Sigillum et ligacio.

{V}os igitur sanctissimos angelos peticionibus meis obedire sigillo deposco, invoco et eciam coniuro, sigillo sanctorum nominum dei, quo Dominus humane creature servire sigillavit, dicere et facere que licita sunt et honesta. ya, ya, ya, laaaa, Adonay, sabaoth, heloy, genouem, mesquerpon, usye, Achedion, Zebedio, greba. Cum istis et per ista sacratissima [nomina] iterum ad concordiam vos appello vos meis peticionibus obedire et coniuro atque virtute dei precipio ut vos meo placati munusculo prompti michi in omnibus locis honestis obedire super sedem samaym hic infra circulos hic circumscriptos a saturninis, iovinis, martialibus, solaribus, venereis, mercurialibus lunaribus speris descendere dignemini que sunt ista. bacalgar, totalg, yfarselogon, alchedion, meremieca, ureleguyger, ioath, somongargmas, iohena. Obedite ergo Zebedeie qui vos salomoni et tribubus Israel sibi fidelibus ad laudem et honorem sui sancti nominis sabaoth quod est exercitus angelorum in honestis et licitis obedire precepit. Et vobis super hoc et ad hoc nomine suo me munitum optime represento, quoniam misericors est, non ex nostris meritis, set ex sue gracia largitatis.

Seal and binding.

Therefore, O most sacred angels, I seal, beseech, invoke, and also conjure you to obey my petitions, through the sigil of the sacred names of God, which the Lord sealed to serve human creatures, which are lawful and honourable to say and to make. Ya, Ya, Ya, Laaaa, Adonay, Sabaoth, Heloy, Genouem, Merquerpon, Usye, Achedion, Zebedio, Greba. With those same and through those same most sacred [names] I again call you to union, to obey my petitions, and I conjure and with the virtue of God I order, that you will be appeased with the small present which I have presented, to obey me in all honest places over the seat of Samaym here below the circles here circumscribed, to deign to descend from the Saturnian, Jovian, Martial, Solar, Venusian, Mercurial, and Lunar spheres, which are these: Bacalgar, Totalg, Yfarselogon, Alchedion, Meremieca, Ureleguyger, Ioath, Somongargmas, Iohena. Obey therefore Zebedei,3 whereby you commanded Solomon, and the tribes of Israel who were loyal to him, to honestly and lawfully obey, for the praise and honor of his holy name Sabaoth, which is "the army of angels," and with his name, which I accurately set forth, protecting me, because he is merciful, not because of our merits, but because of the abundance of his grace.
3. Zebedei: This name also appears in the list of names of God at the beginning of this paragraph, and in the magic circle. The sense seems to be that this is the name of God which Solomon invoked to command the loyalty of the people of Israel. Hebrew “Gift of God”. Also the name of various biblical personalities. In CXIV the spirits are exhorted to "obey as Zebedie ordered his subjects to obey," but this doesn’t seem to match any biblical incident.

Nomine igitur ipsius vos, N, placatos sub hiis sanctis nominibus iterum appello, legemoth, gonathaym, maloth, phoston, hemonege, anephene<s>ton, stobr, otheos, tutheon, thereis, chatheon, agla.

With his name therefore I again appeal to you N, placated by these sacred names: Legemoth, Gonathaym, Maloth, Yhoston, Hemonege, Anepheneton, Stobr, Otheos, Tutheon, Thereis, Chatheon, Agla. In these (names) therefore, with the perfection of the sigil, although your knowledge [teaches] you to obey the commandments of the Creator with humility, nevertheless I N. son of N., ............. ...........

Finitis capitulis incipit prohemium in spiritibus aereis.

Cum igitur ignoratis superioribus angelorum illos constringere sit impossibile, nomina spirituum aeris et ventorum in precedenti posuimus capitulo. ut sui superiores clarius viderentur. et a quibus poterat quilibet subiugari. Nunc autem de natura aeris et omnium spirituum in ipso residencium hic faciemus tractatum. // Aer est elementum corruptibile liquidum et subtile inter cetera nobilius. passibiles recipiens qualitates. et est simpliciter invisibilis set ipso composito videtur. In quo sunt spiritus quos sancta mater ecclesia dampnatos appellat, set ipsi oppositum asserunt esse verum, et ideo eos neque bonos neque malos volumus appellare et illi spiritus in aere reguntur secundum ipsius aeris qualitates et ideo eius qualitates videamus. // Aer igitur in quantum elementum a planetarum influenciis gubernatur. Bene igitur accipit diversas complexiones quas nunc dicemus, quia [132r] quidam sunt demones ad tribulacionem aeris constituti quos ventos Salomon appellavit, quoniam ventos excitant, et secundum quemlibet mutatur aer, et penatur spiritus illius partis, unde quilibet debet aspicere ventum sue operacioni competentem, quia tunc illius partis demones excitantur. // Set non semper invenitur ventus invocacioni habilis ideo eos precipimus excitari, qui <tunc> aere sereno vocantur indifferenter. Et ideo cum angelis ventos ponemus, ut in eis veniant et vincantur, quorum opera in subsequentibus sunt dicenda.

(CXVII) End of the chapters, and beginning of the preface on the aerial spirits.

Know therefore, since it is impossible to bind those higher angels, we have listed the names of the spirits of the air and winds in the preceding chapter(s);1 in order that the superiors might be clearly seen, and through which anyone can be subjugated. Therefore we now will make a treatise concerning the nature of the air and all the spirits residing in it.

The air is a corruptible fluid, and subtile element, ..................................

1. Chapter: i.e. chapters CV-CXI.

Divisio spirituum aereis.

Aereorum vero spirituum duo sunt modi, quoniam quidam sunt boni, quidam mali, quidam mites, quidam feroces. // Boni mites et fideles sunt illi, orientales et occidentales, et dicuntur boni: quia operaciones eorum iuvant in bono, et vix nocent alicui nisi ad hoc cogantur divina virtute. // Mali sunt et cum superbia feroces: australes et septemtrionales et dicuntur mali quia opera eorum sunt mala in omnibus, et nocent libenter omnibus, et vix aliquid quod sequatur ad bonum faciunt nisi ad hoc superiori virtute cogantur. // Set inter istos sunt alii collaterales istis qui neque boni neque mali dicuntur, quoniam in omnibus obediunt invocanti sive in bono fuerit sive in malo de quibus hic est cognicio cuiuscumque. //

(CXVIII) Divisions of the spirits of the Air.

There are two kinds of aerial spirits, some being good and others evil; some are mild and others wild. The good, mild, and faithful ones are the Eastern and Western ones, and are called good, because operations with them help in good, and rarely do they harm anyone, unless they are forced with divine strength.

The evil, arrogant, and wild ones are the Southern and Northern ones, and are called evil, because their works are evil in everything, and they willingly harm anyone, and will scarely do good for anyone unless they are forced with superior strength.

[De spiritibus mediocribus.]

{C}um igitur de perfecte bonis et malis diximus de mediocribus hinc dicamus. Set est advertendum quod operans non debet operari in istis nec pro perfecte bono nec pro perfecte malo. set in rebus mobilibus sicut in itinere in revocacione et subtraccione et similibus operantur.

(CXXIII) [Concerning the intermediate spirits.]

Having treated of the spirits which are either fully good or fully evil, we will now talk about the intermediate ones. .... But they operate in movable things such as in journeys, in the recalling and withdrawing, and similar things.

[De spiritibus inter orientem et meridiem.]

Dicamus igitur quod inter orientem et meridiem est una regio que consol appellatur et sunt in ea angeli qui dicuntur equinocciales, et sunt isti 4. Formione rex, guth, maguth, gutrhyn eius ministri, quibus omnes alii regionis illius demones subduntur, et sunt subditi iovi et vento [*ventis] eius qui boreas et subsolanus dicuntur.

(CXXIV) [Concerning the Spirits between the East and the South.7 ()]

We therefore declare, that between the East and South is a single region, which is called “Consul”, and in it are angels, which are called “equinoctial”, and they are these four: Formione the king, and his ministers Guth, Maguth, and Gutrhyn, and all other daemons of this region are placed under these, and they are subordinate to Jupiter and his winds, quick are called Borean (Northerly”) and Subsolar (“Easterly”). And calling them (the winds) forth are these five: Harit, Iesse, Ryon, Nesaph, and Naadob, and these have four daemons and their subordinates to call them forth, gather them, disperse them, and bind them to their proper place. Their nature is to grant friendship and favor of women, but not carnal relations.

Their bodies are large, as much sanguine as choleric, of medium stature, very jittery, appearing very mild, their manner of speaking flattering, ....



7. Cp. CVI, Heptameron, p. 149, and OP4.5b.

De spiritibus inter austrum et occidentem.

{A}lii sunt inter austrum et occidentem et sua regio est nogoham [*nogahem], qui sunt isti, sarabocres rex, nassar, cynassa eius ministri, quibus omnes alii demones regionis obediunt et subduntur, et sunt subditi veneri et ventis eius qui sunt subsolanus et zephirus. Et excitantes eos sunt isti 4, cambores <rex>, trachatat, nassar, naassa, et habent hos tres demones excitare congregare dispergere constringere ac in loco proprio ligare, et eorum natura est dare argentum in quo est impressio signata, et sta gnum [*stagnum] ad libitum hominis calefacere, luxuriam excitare, inimicos per luxuriam concordare, ut matrimonium ostendit, constringere homines in amorem mulierum et ipsas ad hominum voluntates constringi, homines infirmare vel sanare et facere omnia que moventur. Sua corpora sunt medie stature pulcra dulcia et iocosa color eorum e~ sicut nix insuper deaurata. Motus eorum sicut stella clarissima. Signum eorum quod puelle extra circulum ludere et ipsum vocare videbitur invocanti.

(CXXV) Concerning the Spirits between the South and the West. ()

Others are between the south and the west, and their area is Nogahem, which are these: Sarabocres the king, Nassar, and Cynassa his ministers, with which all other daemons of the area obey and are subjugated, and they are subordinate to Venus and its winds, which are easterly and westerly. And there are four spirits which arouse them: Cambores, Trachatat, Nassar, Naassa, and they have those three daemons to arouse, bring together, disperse, constrain, and bind in their own place.

And their nature is to give silver, in which the sign is impressed, and tin, for arousing human desire, to cause luxury, to bring harmony to enemies through luxury, as marriage shows, to bind men in love of women, and bind women to the wills of men, to sicken or cure people, and to make all things which are moved. Their bodies are medium in stature, pretty, pleasant, and merry. Their color is like snow over gilding. Their movements are like the clearest star. Their sign of their presence (or, their image) is that when invoked, a girl will be seen playing outside the circle, and calling to you.

[De spiritibus inter occidentem et septemtrionem.]

{A}lii sunt inter occidentem et septemtrionem et sua regio est frigicap, qui sunt isti 5, abas [*abaa] rex, hyici, quyron, zach, eladep [*eladeb] eius ministri quibus omnes alii illius regionis demones obediunt et subduntur et sunt subditi mercurio et ventis eius qui zephirus et affricus dicuntur. Et excitantes eos sunt isti 4, zobha <rex>, drohas, palas, zambas, et habent hos 5 demones excitare congregare dispergere constringere ac in loco proprio ligare. Natura eorum est omnia metalla de mundo quecumque fuerint literata vel sculpta cum auro et argento ad libitum dare, omnia preterita presencia et futura terrena revelare, iudices placare, in placito victoriam dare, experimenta et omnes sciencias destructas rectificare et reedificare et eciam docere, corpora eciam ex elementis mixta convertibiliter unum in aliud transmutare et eciam elementa, senem iuvenem facere et e contrario dare infirmitatem quamlibet vel eciam sanitatem, si placeat invocanti pauperes sublimare sublimes opprimere dignitates dare vel auferre cuicumque spiritus ligare [f133r] ad tempus inclusum impedire seraturas aperire, transfiguraciones facere. Et isti possunt omnes operaciones aliorum facere, set hoc non ex perfecta potencia vel virtute: set sciencia bene. Sua corpora sunt medie stature frigida humida, veneranda pulcra rauca in eloquio, humanam formam habencia, ad modum armigeri compti et cucufati, color eorum sicut nubes clara. Motus eorum sicut nubes argentea. Signum est quod horripilacionem tribuunt invocanti. Et isti possunt indifferenter ubicumque vocari.

(CXXVI) [Concerning the Spirits between the West and the North.] ()

Others are between the West and the North, and their area is Frigicap. Which are five: Abaa the king, and Hyicuses, Quyron, Zach, and Eladeb his ministers. ....

Finita divisione angelorum et spirituum, Incipit modus operandi in eis.

{S}i ergo de istis aliquis voluerit operari, si[bi] primo districte precipimus ut peroptime mundetur, sicut diximus in predictis donec venerit ad diem 14am in qua die convenit ieiunare, tunc in ea recipiat corpus Christi dicendo 19, 20, et cum missa de sancto spiritu ut diximus igitur celebratur, sacerdos tenendo corpus Christi antequam gentibus ostendatur petat pro operante sic dicens.

(CXXVII) End of the divisions of the angels and spirits, and beginning of the manner of working with them.

If therefore anybody wishes to operate with those spirits, we must first warn him strictly that he must be thoroughly purified, as we have said in the preceding, until he comes to the fourteenth day, on which day he must begin his fast. Then when the mass of the Holy Spirit is being said or celebrated, when the operator is receiving the body of Christ (eucharist), he should say prayers 19 and 20 (LXXVII-LXXIX), as we have said, when the priest is holding up the body of Christ (i.e. wafer), to reveal it to the congregation, he should pray on behalf of the operation, saying thus:

Oracio.

{D}omine ihesu Christe fili dei vivi quem credo firmiter hominem et deum et iudicem meum venturum, peto te in hoc articulo in virtute istius sacramenti tui ut talis N ex dono tuo ac tua voluntate sine dampnacione corporis et anime sibi spiritus N in omnibus subiciat, ut apparere perficere custodire respondere eos [ad] omnia precepta constringat ut sperat et desiderat amen.

Oration.

O Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God, whom I truly believe is man and God, and my judge soon to come, I beg you in this critical moment, by the power of your sacraments, ....

// Tunc audito completorio ut dictum est de ecclesia recedat dicens 17, donec veniat ad locum in quo debet fieri circulus, tunc locum benedicat: dicens 15. Hoc facto protrahat circulum 9 pedum dicens 18, in quo duos circulos protrahat, quorum unus distet ab alio per unum pedem inter quos scribes nomina angelorum diei, et hore mensis, temporis faciei dicendo.

O vos angeli sancti et potentes sitis michi in hoc opere adiutores. Tunc protrahes infra istos duos circulos eptagonum communem omnibus invocacionibus aptum, cuius forma cum parcium suarum dimencionibus et diffinicionibus subsequitur inferius in figura. Nota quod operans debet esse diligens ut addat ista nomina aliis nominibus, quia durum est homini ignoranti virtutes spirituum et eorum malicias cum eis sine municione maxima aliqualiter habitare. Et assimilatur illi qui vult debellare militem sagacem et ignorat [col. 2] arma eius et quis miles, et que virtus militis quem debellat. Bene igitur sibi caveat quia ingenium viribus prevalet et ideo oportet ipsum esse sagacissimum in suo circulo faciendo, quia ibi iacet tuicio operantis.

// 13 Primo sic aptetur locus quod terra sit plana et equa nec sint ibi lapides aut herbe et quando eum protraxerit aerem supra se duobus diametris ubicumque signet, dicens.

Signum salomonis ad salvacionem et defensionem pono supra me ut sit michi proteccio a facie inimici. In nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti. Amen. // Sic tuo completo circulo exi et extra eum scribe in terra vel in cedulis 7 nomina creatoris que sunt lialy [*Laialy], lialg, veham, yalgal, narath, libarre, libares, nec plus facies in hac nocte.

(13) First you must prepare the place thus, for the earth should be flat and level, and free from stones or vegetation, and when it has been drawn, mark in the air above .... saying: (14) “I put the Seal of Solomon upon me for salvation and defence, in order that it protect me in the face of the enemy. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen." (15) Thus with your circle complete, exit and write outside in the earth or on small pieces of parchment, the seven names of the creator, which are L[a]ialy, Lialg, Veham, Yalgal, Narath, Libarre, Libares, and nothing more is accomplished this night.

Compare Wellcome 110, fol. 45v.

Secunda dies.

In crastino dum matutinam primam, terciam, missam,1 meridiem, nonam, vesperas et completorium audieris, venies ad circulum dicendo 17. Tunc habeas thus et thuribulum in quo sint prune, et ponas thus super prunas et suffumiges circulum dicens 1 et 2 incipiens ab oriente in occidentem a meridie in septemtrionem. Tunc a consol in noghahem et a noghahem in frigicap, et postea celum et terram, et ita ter facies, set primo debent 7 predicta nomina deleri. Hoc facto suffumigando circulum ventos novies taliter excitabis.

(CXXVIII) The Second Day.

On the next day you should hear matins, prime, terce, mass, none, vespers, and compline, then go to the circle saying prayer 17. ....

1. Sl. 3853 adds: "post oraciones in meridie dicendas".

Incipit excitacionis ventorum primus circulus incipiens in oriente et terminans in meridie.

Tunc intres circulum per partem inter frigicap et occidentem pro meta positam et tunc socii stantes pedibus in circulo stent, donec recluseris circulos dicens 18. // Tunc situa socios et enses in circulo tali modo. Set antequam intraverunt, 7 predicta nomina deleantur, quia non possent aliter apparere.

Ut ille vel illi N spiritus quos ego invocavero ad me constricti veniant sub tali forma N letantes appareant de omnibus quesitis veritatem respondeant et omnia mea precepta veraciter adimpleant et adimpleta diligenter et sine corupcione custodiant, per illum qui divisit lumen a tenebris, qui diabolis potestatem suam abstulit, sub cuius potestate sunt celestia terrestria et infernalia, qui vivit et regnat deus in deitate sua, trinitas, pater et filius et spiritus sancti amen.

// Hoc facto dicat sociis quod non timeant, et inclinato capite terram et ensem et nichil aliud respiciant, et si siciunt bibant. // Et tunc magister tenens baculum lauri vel coruli illius anni in manu dextra et thuribulum in sinistra Incipiens in oriente novies circuiens suffumiget circulum dicens.

(CXXXII.)

With this done, he should say to the associates, that they should not fear, but bow their heads, and pay attention to nothing other than the earth and the sword, and if they are thirsty, they may drink. And then the master takes in his right hand a stick of laurel or hazel from that year,2 and in his left hand the censer. He then begins to suffumigate the circle, starting in the East, and going around nine times, saying:

2. This is called baculus (a stick or staff) here, but virgula (wand, rod, twig) just below.

{A}ramorule, thanthalatisthen, 97, rabud, thanthalatisthen, 28, 29, principium et finis, 30, 31, 32, te suppliciter exoro et invoco, ut tuo iudicio convicti et constricti veniant advocati et dent michi responsa vera de quibus interrogavero non nocentes alicui creature, non ledentes, non frementes, non furientes nec me sociosque meos vel aliquam creaturam terrentes, neminem offendentes set peticionibus meis [obedientes] pocius et que precepero diligenter adimplentes.

Then say once towards the four parts of the universe with bent knees:

'[A]ramorul, Thanthalatisthes, 97, Rabud, Thanthalatistha, 28, 29, the beginning and the end, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34 I humbly beg and call upon you, that by your judgment they may be bound and constrained to come and give true answers to those things which I shall ask them, not hurting any creature, (35) not hurting or roaring or raging against either me or my associates or frightening any creatures, offending nobody, but rather [+obeying] my petitions and diligently fulfilling my orders.’1

// Tunc stans pedibus sibila sepcies percuciat et tunc semel circueat [136v] circulum dicens, Bethala et cetera usque ad occurrite. // Tunc stans in medio circuli aperta manu super aerem eis signum ostendat dicens. Sigillo salomonis veniant advocati et dent michi responsum verum.

Then standing on his feet, he should strike the whistle seven-times, and then circumabulate once around the circle, saying ‘Bethala’ etc. up to 'you meet!' Then standing in the middle of the circle with the open hand over the air to them he should show the sign saying: 'To the sigil of Solomon the counsellors may come and may give to me true answers.'

Incipit placacio spirituum.

{G}eneolia, chide,6 ministri tartaree sedis primathie, principes prepotentes sedis apoloice, potestates maonamirie, ego vos invoco et invocando vos coniuro atque superne maiestatis munitus virtute potenter imparo per eum qui dixit et factum est, cui obediunt omnes creature. Et per hoc nomen ineffabile tetragramaton, ioht, he, uau, deleth, in quo plasmatum est omne seculum, quo audito: omnes exercitus celestium terrestrium et infernalium creaturarum tremunt et colunt, quatinus cito et sine mora et omni occasione cessante ab universis mundi partibus adveniatis: racionabiliter de omnibus quecumque interogavero respondeatis non nocentes michi nec sociis meis, non mencientes set pocius veritatem dicentes et veniatis {pa}cifice manifestantes quod cupimus coniu{rat}i per nomen eterni vivi et veri dei, 97.

Here begins the placating of the spirits.

Geneolia, Chide, ministers of the Tartarean seat of the primate’s office, mighty princes of the seat of Apologia, powers of Maonamiria, I invoke you and by invoking you I conjure and protected by the strength of the heavenly majesty, I potently command you through Him who spoke, and it was done, whom all creatures obey, and through this ineffable name "Tetragrammaton": Ioht, He, Vau, Daleth, through which all the ages were formed, which heard, all celestial, terrestrial, and infernal hosts tremble at worship that you cease all pretexts and come quickly and without delay, from all parts of the world, responding rationally to everything which I will ask, not harming me nor my associates, (42) not speaking deceptively, but rather truthfully and may you come peacefully, revealing what we wish, being conjured with the eternal name of the living and true God, 97.7
6. S3: "Geuolia chide." GH, following only Sl. 3854 here, reads "{.}eneolia, chide."

7. Name 97 is "Elyorem." Compare H, pp. 120-122: "Beralanensis, Baldachiensis, .... by the name of the living and true God, Helioren [*Heliorem]."

Quo facto statim apparebunt visiones infinite et illusiones sicut choros, organa, cithare et omnia instrumenta dulcissima, ut possint socios ad exitum provocare, quia supra magistrum nichil possunt. Illis vero transactis, venient exercitus militum et ballivorum ut debeant pro timore de circulo fugere. // Post hec venient sagittarii cum omnium ferarum genere ac si eos crederent devorare. Set operans providus loquatur sociis dicens. Nolite timere ecce signum domini creatoris nostri, convertimini ad eum quia potens est vos eripere de ore malignancium.

With that done, immediately infinite visions and illusions will appear, such as choirs, organs, lutes, and all the sorts of the sweetest instruments, in order to provoke the associates to flee, because they are able to exert no such influence over the master. (44) After this armies of soldiers and bailiffs will come, in order to frighten them to flee from the circle. (45) After these archers and all types of all wild beasts will come, and act as if they intended to devour them. But he should set about to speak to the associates saying, "Have no fear. Behold the sign of the Lord, our creator. Turn back to him, because he has the power to snatch you away from the jaws of the wicked."

// Tunc dicat magister spiritibus manu clausa, fugiat hinc iniquitas vestra virtute vexilli dei. Et tunc aperiat7, ut obedire cogantur. Et statim nichil socii videbunt. Tunc confortando eos dic. Sicio. Potemus. Quid vobis videtur? Nolite timere. Sperantes autem in domino misericordia circumdabit. Letamini igitur in domino et gloriamini. Et scias quod de cetero non timebunt.

(47) Then the master, with closed hands, says as follows to the spirits: “Flee hence with your iniquities, by virtue of the banner of God.” And then he should uncover [the Seal of God],7 to compel them to obey, and immediately the associates will see them no more. (48) Then encourage them, saying, “I am thirsty. We may drink. What does it seem like to you? Don’t be afraid, but put your hope in the mercy of the Lord. Therefore rejoice in the Lord.” And know that they will fear no more.

7. S3 adds "signum dei."
[col. 2]

// Tunc dicat eis quod de cetero non loquantur. Et tunc in medio circuli conversus teneat manum dextram in aere dicens. Ecce Opus sacratissimum. i.e. signum dei. Et est [*Ecce] mirabilis i.e. tota quasi accidentalis dei potencia descripcio. Ecce capita8 vestra prefigurata scilicet boal. erunt. rata ad destruccionem vestram Sanctissimis dei nominibus exornata. Ecce [signum]9 salomonis cum suis literis karacteribus et figuris quod ante vestram adduxi presenciam. Ecce personam exorcizatoris in medio exorcismi, qui est optime a deo munitus, intrepidus providus viribus qui potenter vos exorcizando vocavit et vocat. Venite igitur cum omni festinacione o aye, samye [*saraye], ne differatis venire per nomina eterna vivi et veri dei, 98, 99, et per hoc presens sacratissimum opus et per sanctum sigillum quod super vos potenter imperat, et per virtutem celestium spirituum et per personam exorcizatoris coniurati festinate venire et obedire preceptori vestro qui vocatur occinnomos.10

(49) Then tell them that they should not speak any more, and then, in the middle of the circle, he should hold his right hand in the air, saying, (50) “Behold the most sacred work. Behold this wonderful depiction. Behold your divisions prefigured, embellished with the most holy names of God. (51) Behold the sign of Solomon with its letters, characters, and figures, which I have brought before your presence. (52) Behold the person of the exorcist in the midst of the exorcism, who has been well fortified by God, undaunted, prepared with powers, who has powerfully called you, and calls you with exorcising. (53) Come therefore with all haste, O Aye, Samye, come without delay. Through the eternal names of the living and true God, 98, 99, and by this most holy work, and by the Holy Sigil, (54) which commands power over you, and by the virtue of the heavenly spirits, and by the person of the exorcist who is conjuring you, hasten to come and obey your master, who is called "Occinnomos."

8. S3: "Ecce opus sacratissimum est signum dei, et est mirabilis descripcio. Id est tota quasi accidentalis dei potencia. Ecce capita...."

9. So S3. Sl. 3854 is missing the word; GH: "[sigillum]". H reads "pentaculum."

10. Compare Heptameron, p. 123

Hic sibilet undique semel et statim videbit motus et signa propria, set non nocebunt de cetero. // Et tunc dicat sicut homo ferens imperium divine, maiestatis et quasi eos in infimo suppeditans. // Quid tardatis? que est ista mora quam facitis? properate vos et obedite preceptori vestro, bathac2 super Abrac ruens, Abeor super Aberor. Et statim venient in forma propria, Si illis venientibus dum fuerint circa circulum dicat magister ostendens eis sigillum. Ecce coniuracionem vestram, nolite inobedientes fieri. Et statim videbit eos in forma pulcherrima et pacifica dicentes: Pete quod viso nunc, parati sumus quicquid preceperis adimplere, quia nos dominus subiugavit. Tunc pete quod vis et tibi fiet, vel aliis, pro quibus volueris operari.

(55) Here he should whistle1 once on each side, and immediately he will see movements and relevant signs, but they will not harm anything. And then he should speak like one bearing the command of divine majesty, and as if they are humbly satisfying your needs: (56) “Why are you not yet here? What is the reason for your delay? Hurry and obey the commands of your master, Bachac rushing upon Abrac, Abeor over Aberor.” (57) And they will come immediately in their proper forms, ....

{E}xcitacio ventorum est principium operandi in illa XIa hora diei operis sacri et debet fieri extra domum longe a circulo ad duo stadia vel tria. Et debet prius esse bene preparatus de necessariis suis, de optimo vino de 7 ensibus, de sibilo, de virgula coruli, de sigillis, de signo dei, de thure, de thuribulo, de candela virginea et sic de aliis ut prius patet.

(CXXXIX) Fourth chapter of the Fifth Treatise, concerning the beginning of undertaking the work of invocation.

....

// Et scias quod in illa pelle ubi est sigillum domini debent esse tria sigilla predicta sub signo: ita quod pendeant de manu. // Sigillum angelorum sit immediate sub signo dei, et Sub illo sigillum aereorum et sub illo terreorum.

Et quando cognoscentur motus eorum appropinquare oportet ire ad circulum et delere 7 nomina creatoris, et tunc item ut prius extra iuxta circulum excitare, et cum videbitis motus eorum intrare circulum et facere ut est predictum.

// Virga autem sit quadrata et in uno latere scribatur in summitate, adonay. In secundo latere sabaoth. In 3o hiskiros, in 4o Emanuel. In medio virge fiat pentagonus salomonis et ubi virga tenetur crux, et sic erit parata operi sacro et miro.

But the wand should have four sides. On one side should be written “Adonay;” on the second side “Sabaoth;” on the third, “Hiskiros;” on the fourth “Emanuel.” On the middle of the wand make the pentagonal figure of Solomon, and where the wand is held, a cross, and thus it will be prepared for sacred and wonderful works.

Hiskiros: Greek ισχυρος, Iskhiros (Mighty One).

Quintum capitulum quinti tractatus de composicione sibili et exposicione cuiusdam dicti in 3o tractatu.

(CXL) Fifth Chapter of the Fifth Treatise, concerning the composition of the whistle, and an explanation of certain sayings in the Third Treatise.

{F}ac sibilum de ere albo vel de argento vel de auro vel avellana, et sit eptagonum, id est septem latera habens, sit grossum ad placitum, sit longum ad longitudinem trium digitorum.

// Tunc in summitate eius sculpatur hoc nomen, on. Et inferius in alia summitate beel. Et in latere primo ubi est forus sibili scribatur nomen regis orientalis, scilicet barthan. In secundo latere a dextris nomen regis consol, scilicet formione. In 3o regis meridiei, scilicet yammax. In 4o regis nogahelis, scilicet sarabocres. In 5 latere regis [col. 2] occidentalis, scilicet harthan. In 6o regis frigicapicis, Abaa. In 7o regis septemtrionalis, maymon. Et postea benedic eum sicut cruorem nisi quod mutabis nomen, et ubi dicebatur in sigillum dei te mitti iussit, nunc dices, in clamatum spirituum te clangere iussit.

Make a whistle from white copper,1 or from silver, or from gold, or even hazel, and it should be heptagonal, i.e. having seven sides. It may be as large as you please, and its length should be as long as three fingers.

....

1. White copper: an alloy of copper and nickel, often including zinc.

Et scias quod quando vocantur angeli boni non debet habere sibilum neque virgam neque ensem [*enses], et tu debes stare extra circulum, et ipsi debent apparere infra circulum, qui debet esse altus tribus pedibus et semis. // Set in aliis aereis et terreis oportet predicta habere. Set differt inter illos quia illi aerei apparent extra circulum in aere homine existente infra circulum qui debet esse totus planus sicut +epiparet+. Set in terreis sic est quod ipsi apparent infra circulum concavum, profundum et rotundum homine existente infra alium circulum, ab illis circulis predictis, qui tamen similiter debet esse planus et equus et circa eum scripta solum 4 nomina dei, prout patet.

// Angeli hore sunt qui regnant in hora operis angeli diei qui in die operis, Angeli mensis angeli lune, vel principii mensis Angeli faciei qui regnant facie ubi est eorum dominium ascendente. Temporis omnes insimul et principes eorum omnium sunt 7, ut patuit supra, casziel, satquiel et cetera. // Adhuc sunt 7 superiores, scilicet barachiel, uriel et cetera.

Explicit liber de vita anime racionalis, qui liber sacer vel liber angelorum vel liber iuratus nuncupatur, quem fecit honorius magister thebarum. Hic est liber quo deus in hac vita facialiter quit videri. Hic est liber quo quilibet potest salvari et in vitam eternam procul dubio deduci. Hic est liber quo infernus et purgatorium queunt sine morte videri, hic est liber quo omnis creatura exceptis novem ordinibus angelorum possunt subiugari. Hic est liber quo omnes siencie possunt haberi. Hic est liber quo substancia imbecillissima potest substancias robustissimas et devincere et subiugare. Hic est liber quem nulla lex habet nisi Christiana, et si habet, nil [139r] sibi prodest. Hic est liber qui est maius iocale a domino datum omni alio iocali exclusis sacramentis. Hic est liber quo natura corporalis et visibilis cum incorporali et invisibili alloqui racionari et instrui potest. Hic est liber quo innumerabiles thesauri haberi possunt. Et multa alia per hunc fieri queunt que narrare dispendium esset. Ideo merito Sacer nuncupatur.

Here ends the book concerning the life of the rational soul, which is called the Sacred Book, or the Book of the Angels, or the Sworn Book, which was made by Honorius, the master of Thebes. This is the book with which one is able to see God face to face, while still alive. This is the book....

[72 angels from Schemhamphoras]

Et hi sunt qui præsident septuaginta duobus quinariis coe-| lestibus, totidemqe nationibus et linguis, et humani corpor-| is artubus, cooperanturqe septuaginta duobus synagogæ | senioribus, totidemqe christi discipulis. et nomina eorum sec-| undum extractionem quam faciunt cabalistæ patent in hac |
[75v]
sequenti tabella, secundum vnum modum quem diximus. |
Sunt autem et alii plures modi ex eisdem versiculis fabrican-| di Schemhamphoras, vt cum omnes tres recto ordine sibi | subalternatim a dextram sinistram scribuntur, præter illos | qui per tabulas Ziruph, et tabulas commutationum extr-| ahuntur, de quibus in superioribus mentionem fecimus | et quoniam hæ tabulæ omnibus tum diuinis, tum angel-| icis nominibus inseruiunt, ideo illas etiam huic capiti su-| biungemus.

These two paragraphs appear to have been quoted verbatim from the 1533 edition of Agrippa, OP3.25. Cf. V. Perrone Compagni, p. 473 ll. 7-19. Agrippa got this from Francesco Georgi (or Zorzi) De harmonia mundi: Venetiis, 1525, 1: 4, 13, f. 61v; 2: 7, 23, f. 328r.

"And these are those that are set over the seventy-two Celestial quinaries, and so many Nations, and tongues, and joints of man's body, and cooperate with the seventy-two seniors of the Synagogue, and so many disciples of Christ: and their names according to the extraction which the Cabalists make, are manifest in this following table, according to one manner which we have spoke of. Now there are many other manner or ways of making Schemhamphorae out of those verses, as when all three are in a right order written one after the other, from the right to the left, besides those which are extracted by the tables of Ziruph, and the tables of commutations, of which we made mention above. And because these tables serve for all names, as well divine, as angelical, we shall therefore subjoin them to this chapter."
