Peter de Abano: Heptameron, or Magical Elements

This digital edition by Joseph H. Peterson, Copyright © 1998, 2008. All rights reserved.

The earliest edition of this concise handbook of ritual magic appears to be Venice, 1496 (Lynn Thorndike (Magic and Experimental Science, vol. II, p. 925). European libraries also list editions of 1559, 1565 It later appeared as an appendix of Agrippa's Opera, following Agrippa's Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy.

Note that the theoretical framework for the text is indebted to Sepher Razielis, though redacted or adapted.

There are also close parallels between the chapters on the spirits of the planets and chapters CV-CXI of the Sworn Book of Honorius of Thebes (see also note on the "Theban alphabet" below). See Gösta Hedegård, Liber Iuratus Honorii: , Stockholm: Almqvist & Wiksell, 2002, p. 41. There are also close parallels with Sepher Razielis (Book 6). Compare for example Sloane 3846, fols. 154r-158r, transcription in appendix 8 of The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses.

The editions I have used are as follows:

L1565 Agrippa von Nettesheim, Heinrich Cornelius, and Petrus. Henrici Cornelii Agrippae liber qvartvs De occvlta philosophia, seu de cerimonijs magicis. [Marburg?:] Impressum, 1565. Facsimile included in: Agrippa von Nettesheim, Heinrich Cornelius, and Karl Anton Nowotny. De occulta philosophia. Graz: Akademische Druck u. Verlagsanstalt, 1967.
L1600Latin text is Lyon 1600 (?). Facsimile in Agrippa von Nettesheim, Heinrich Cornelius. Opera I. With an introduction by Richard H. Popkin. Hildesheim: G. Olms, 1970. This introduces some errors not present in L1565 (such as Escerchie instead of Escerehie).
RT An English translation by Robert Turner was first published in 1655, included in a collection of esoteric texts along with Agrippa's Fourth Book: Petrus, Gherardo, Georg Pictorius, Robert Turner, and Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim. Henry Cornelius Agrippa's Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, and Geomancy. Magical Elements. London: [s.n.], 1655.
FB Barrett, Francis. The Magus, or Celestial Intelligencer; Being a Complete System of Occult Philosophy. 1801, pp. B106ff.
Gollancz Gollancz, Hermann. Sepher Maphteah Shelomo = Book of the Key of Solomon. London: Oxford Univ. Press, 1914. Facsimile of Hebrew manuscript includes Heptameron. It was probably translated into Hebrew from Italian.

The attribution of the text to the famous physician Peter de Abano (1250-1316) "seems quite certainly spurious" according to historian Lynn Thorndike (op. cit., p. 912). His reputation as a magician developed quite early however. Agrippa refers to de Abano in his Third Book as being his source (via Trithemius' Polygraphia) for the Theban alphabet of Honorius of Thebes. This alphabet has been widely used in modern Wicca. The Heptameron ("seven days") details rites for conjuring angels for the seven days of the week. It is heavily based on texts of the Solomon cycle, and in fact appears in the Hebrew Key of Solomon (Mafteah Shelomoh) fol 35a ff under the title the Book of Light (though without the Christian elements). It was also apparently one of the chief sources for the Lemegeton.

Ritual implements include: perfume, holy water, a new earthen vessel with fire, vesture, pentacle, the book, and a sword. The section On the manner of working mentions pentacles in the plural; this is another indication that this present method is indeed based on Clavicula Solomonis.

Note corrections to Turner's translation. Translations in the marginal notes are supplied from F. Barrett, The Magus, 1801, pp. B106ff. -JHP.

HEPTAMERON, SEV

ELEMENTA MAGICA PETRI

de Abano philosophi.

[Introduction by the editor.]

In the former book, which is the fourth book of Agrippa, it is sufficiently spoken concerning Magical Ceremonies, and Initiations.

But because he seemeth to have written to the learned, and well-experienced in this art; because he doth not specially treat of the Ceremonies, but rather speaketh of them in general, it was therefore thought good to adde hereunto the Magical Elements of Peter de Abano: that those who are hitherto ignorant, and have not tasted of Magical Superstitions, may have them in readiness, how they may exercise themselves therein. For we see in this book, as it were a certain introduction of Magical vanity; and, as if they were in present exercise, they may behold the distinct functions of spirits, how they may be drawn to discourse and communication; what is to be done every day, and every hour; and how they shall be read, as if they were described sillable by sillable.

In brief, in this book are kept the principles of Magical conveyances. But because the greatest power is attributed to the Circles; (For they are certain fortresses to defend the operators safe from the evil Spirits;) In the first place we will treat concerning the composition of a Circle.

[S]uperiore libro, qui est quartus Agrippæ, satis abvndè dictum est de Cerimoniis & initiationibus Magicis. Verum quoniam doctis, & iam in hac Arte prouectis videtur scripsisse, quod speciatim de Cerimoniis non agat, sed in genere potius locetur, consilium fuit addere Elementa Magica Petri de Abano, vt rudes adhuc, & qui superstitiones Magicas non gustarunt, in procinctu habeant, quomodo in iis se exercere possint. Videbunt enim in hoc [98] libello Isagogen quandam Magicæ vanitatis, &, quasi versentur in re præsenti, distinctas Spirituum functiones conspicient, quomodo illos ad colloquium allicere oporteat, quid quolibet die, quaue hora agendum sit, & quomodo quasi syllabatim, descriptum legent: in summa omnium Magicarum præstigiarum principia in hoc libello, qui verè gradus est ad Magicas operationes, tenebunt. Sed quoniam summa vis circulis tribuitur (sunt enim munimenta quædam, quæ Operantes à malis Spiritibus reddant tutos) primò loco de Circuli compositione tractabimus.

locetur: L1600: loquatur.
Videbunt: L1600: Videmus.

Of the Circle, and the composition thereof.

De Circulo, & eius compositione.

THe form of Circles is not alwaies one and the same; but useth to be changed, according to the order of the Spirits that are to be called, their places, times, daies and hours. For in making a Circle, it ought to be considered in what time of the year, what day, and what hour, that you make the Circle; what Spirits you would call, to what Star and Region they do belong, and what functions they have. Therefore let there be made three Circles of the latitude of nine foot, and let them be distant one from another a hands breadth;
  1. and in the middle [i.e. inner] Circle, first, write the name of the hour wherein you do the work.
  2. In the second place, Write the name of the Angel of the hour.
  3. In the third place, The Sigil of the Angel of the hour.
  4. Fourthly, The name of the Angel that ruleth that day wherein you do the work, and the names of his ministers.
  5. In the fifth place, The name of the present time [i.e. season such as Spring].
  6. Sixthly, The name of the Spirits ruling in that part of time, and their Presidents.
  7. Seventhly, The name of the head of the Signe ruling in that part of time [season] wherein you work.
  8. Eighthly, The name of the earth, according to that part of time [season] wherein you work.
  9. Ninthly, and for the compleating of the middle Circle, Write the name of the Sun and of the Moon, according to the said rule of time [season]; for as the time is changed, so the names are to be altered.

And in the outermost Circle, let there be drawn in the four Angles, the names of the presidential Angels of the Air, that day wherein you would do this work; to wit, the name of the King and his three Ministers.

Without the Circle, in four Angles, let Pentagones be made.

In the inner Circle let there be written four divine names with crosses interposed in the middle of the Circle; to wit, towards the East let there be written Alpha, and towards the West let there be written Omega; and let a cross divide the middle of the Circle. When the Circle is thus finished, according to the rule now before written, you shall proceed.

[99]

Circulorum autem ratio non est vna eadémque semper, sed pro ratione Spirituum inuocandorum, locorum, temporum, dierum, & horarum mutari solent.

Oportet enim, in constituendo Circulo considerare, quo tempore Anni, quo die, & qua hora Circulum facias: quos spiritus aduocare velis, cui stellæ & Regioni præsint, & quas functiones habeant. Fiant igitur tres Circuli latitudinis pedum nouem, & qui distent vnus ab alio palmum vnum: & in medio circulo scribe primò nomen horæ in qua tu facis opus, secundo loco nomen Angeli horæ, tertio sigillum Angeli horæ: quarto nomen Angeli, qui præest ei diei qua tu facis opus, & ministrorum eius: quinto nomen temporis [100] præsentis. Sexto nomen Spirituum regnantium in ea temporis parte, & ei præsidentium. Septimo nomen capitis signi regnantis ea temporis parte qua facis opus. Octauo nomen Terræ secundum eam partem temporis in qua facis opus. Nono, & pro complemento medij circuli scribe nomina Solis & Lunæ secundum prædictam temporis rationem. Mutato enim Tempore mutant & nomina. In superiore autem circulo assignentur in quatuor angulis, nomina Angelorum aeri præsidentium eo die, quo facis opus: Regis scilicet et trium ministrorum eius. Extra circulum in quatuor angulis sint Pentagoni. In inferiore circulo scribantur quatuor nomina Diuina, crucibus interpositus. In medio circuli, scilicet ad [101] orientem, scribatur Alpha, & ad occidentem, scribatur & ω, diuidatque crux medium circuli: Perfecto circulo, secundum rationem infra scriptam procedes.

Of the names of the hours, and the Angels ruling them.

IT is also to be known, that the Angels do rule the hours in a successive order, according to the course of the heavens, and Planets unto which they are subject; so that that Spirit which governeth the day, ruleth also the first hour of the day; the second from this governeth the second hour; the third; the third hour, and so consequently: and when seven Planets and hours have made their revolution, it returneth again to the first which ruleth the day. Therefore we shall first speak of the names of the hours.

De nominibus horarum, & Angelorum eis præsidentium.

Sciendum est autem, Angelos ordine successiuo, secundum Cœlorum & Planetarum rationem, quibus præsunt, Horis etiam præesse. Adeoque Spiritus, qui præest diei, imperat etiam primæ horæ diei, secundus ab hoc Planeta, præest secundæ, Tertius tertiæ, & sic consequenter. Septem autem Planetis & horis reuolutis, rursus reditur ad primum qui præest diei. De nominibus [102] igitur horarum primò dicemus.

Of the names of the Angels and their Sigils, it shall be spoken in their proper places. Now let us take a view of the names of the times. A year therefore is fourfold, and is divided into the Spring, Summer, Harvest and Winter; the names whereof are these.

De nominibus Angelorum & sigillis eorum dicetur suo loco. Nunc videndum est de nominibus temporum. Annus igitur quadripartitus, diuiditur in [103] Ver, Aestatem, Autumnum & Hyemem, quorum sunt hæc nomina:

The Consecrations and Benedictions: and first of the Benediction of the Circle.

De Consecrationibus, & Benedictionibus: & primo de Circuli Benedictione.

WHen the Circle is ritely perfected, sprinkle the same with holy or purging water [i.e. lustral water -JHP], and say, [106]
Postquam ritè perfectus erit Circulus, asperge eum Aqua Benedicta seu Lustrali, & dic:
Thou shalt purge me with hysop, (O Lord,) and I shall be clean: Thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter then snow.
Asperges me Domine hyssopo, & mundabor: Lauabis me, & super niuem dealbabor.
This text from Psalm 50.9 is used in the Mass as well as virtually every grimoire.

The Benediction of perfumes.

Benedictio fumigiorum.

THe God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, bless here the creatures of these kindes [better: "these creatures of spices" -JHP], that they may fill up the power and vertue of their odours; so that neither the enemy, nor any false imagination, may be able to enter into them: through our Lord Jesus Christ, &c.
Deus Abraham, Deus Isaac, Deus Iacob, benedic has creaturas specierum, vt vim & virtutem odorum suorum amplient, ne hostis, nec fantasma in eas intrare possit, Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, &c.
has creaturas: L1600: huc creaturas
fantasma: L1600: phantasma

Compare with version given in Gollancz' Hebrew edition of the Key of Solomon (Mafteah Shelomoh, fol. 37b):
O God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, put Thy blessing upon these perfumes, so as to enlarge the power of their fragrance and their efficacy, in order that no enemy shall be able to enter them, nor any other forms, in the Name of Adonai, the Living God, and Ruler for generation upon generation. Amen!

Then let them be sprinkled with holy water.

Deinde aspergantur Aqua Benedicta.

The Exorcisme of the fire upon which the perfumes are to be put.

Exorcismus ignis, cui superponuntur fumigia.

THe fire which is to be used for suffumigations, is to be in a new vessel of earth or iron [*clay]1; and let it be exorcised after this manner.

Ignis quo vtendum est, ad suffumigationes, [107] sit in vase fictili seu Terreo, nouo, Exorcisatur2 autem hoc modo:

1. Turner reads or misreads "ferreum" (iron), but I have only seen "terreo" (earthen) in the various Latin versions.

2. Exorcisatur: L1600: Exorcizatur.
I exorcise thee, O thou creature of fire, by him by whom all things are made, that forthwith thou cast away every phantasme from thee, that it shall not be able to do any hurt in any thing.
Exorcizo te creatura Ignis, per illum, per quem facta sunt omnia, vt statim omne fantasma eiicias à te, vt nocere non possit in aliquo.
fantasma: L1600: phantasma.

Then say,

Bless, O Lord, this creature of fire, and sanctifie it, that it may be blessed to set forth the praise of thy holy name, that no hurt may come to the Exorcisers or Spectators: through our Lord Jesus Christ, &c.

Deinde dic:

Benedic Domine Creaturam istam Ignis, & sanctifica, vt benedicta sit, in collaudationem nominis tui sancti: vt nullo nocumento sit gestantibus nec videntibus: Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, &c.

Of the Garment and Pentacle.

LEt it be a Priests Garment, if it can be had, let it be of linen, and clean. Then take this Pentacle made in the day and hour of Mercury, the Moon increasing, written in [paper or] parchment made of a kids skin. But first let there be said over it the Mass of the holy Ghost, and let it be sprinkled with water of baptism.

De Veste & Pentaculo.

Vestis sit sacerdotis, si fieri potest, si non possit haberi, sit Linea & nitida. Deinde sumat hoc pentaculum Die & hora Mercurij, crescente luna, in charta vel membrana hœdi. Sed prius dicatur super illo, Missa Spiritus sancti, & aspergatur Aqua Baptismali.
[108]

hoc pentaculum: L1600: hoc pentaculum factum.

charta vel membrana: L1600: charta membrana.

kids skin: i.e. a young goat.

For the sigil, compare with version in the Hebrew Key of Solomon (Mafteah Shelomoh):

An Oration to be said, when the Vesture is put on.

ANcor, Amacor, Amides, Theodonias, Anitor, by the merits of thy Angel, O Lord, I will put on the Garments of Salvation, that this which I desire I may bring to effect: through thee the most holy Adonay, whose kingdom endureth for ever and ever. Amen.

Oratio dicenda quando induitur vestis.

Ancor, Amacor, Amides, Theodonias, Anitor, per merita Angelorum tuorum sanctorum Domine, [119] induam vestimenta salutis: vt hoc quod desidero, possim per ducere ad effectum: per te sanctissime Adonay, cuius Regnum permanet, per omnia secula seculorum, Amen.

[119] [sic] *109.

This oration also occurs widely in magical texts. The version in the Lemegeton is almost identical, and indeed may have been taken directly from de Abano. Compare also with the version in Liber Iuratus Honorii and that in Ars Notoria.

Of the manner of working.

LEt the Moon be increasing and equal, if it may then be done, and let her not be combust.

The Operator ought to be clean and purified by the space of nine daies before the beginning of the work, and to be confessed, and receive the holy Communion. Let him have ready the perfume appropriated to the day wherein he would perform the work. He ought also to have holy water from a Priest, and a new earthen vessel with fire, a Vesture and a Pentacle; and let all these things be rightly and duly consecrated and prepared. Let one of the servants carry the earthen vessel full of fire, and the perfumes, and let another bear the book, another the Garment and Pentacle, and let the master carry the Sword; over which there must be said one mass of the Holy Ghost; and on the middle of the Sword, let there be written this name Agla +, and on the other side thereof, this name + On +. And as he goeth to the consecrated place, let him continually read Letanies, the servants answering. And when he cometh to the place where he will erect the Circle, let him draw the lines of the Circle, as we have before taught: and after he hath made it, let him sprinkle the Circle with holy water, saying, Asperges me Domine, &c. [Wash me O Lord, &c.]

De modo operationis.

Sit Luna Crescens, & par, si fieri potest, & non sit combusta. Operans sit nitidus & purus, per nouem Dies, ante inceptionem operis, sit confessus & communicatus. Habeat fumigium assignatum diei, in quo facit opus, habeat item Aquam Benedictam à Sacerdote, vas fictile nouum igne plenum, vestem & Pentaculum: & sint hæc omnia debitè & ritè consecrata & præparata: Vnus è discipulis ferat vas terrenum igne plenum, & fumigationes, [110] alius portet librum, alius vestem & Pentaculum: & Magister ferat gladium, super quo dicta sit vna Missa de Spiritu Sancto, & in medio, cuius sit scriptum hoc nomen, AGLA +. & in alio latere, hoc nomen + ON + Eundo ad locum consecrandum, dicat semper Litanias, & Discipuli respondeant: Et cum peruenerit ad locum, vbi vult facere Circulum, protrahat Circuli lineas, vt suprà docuimus. Et postquam perfecerit, aspergat Circulum Aqua Benedicta dicens: Asperges me Domine. &c.

The Master therefore ought to be purified with fasting, chastity, and abstinency from all luxury the space of three whole dayes before the day of the operation. And on the day that he would do the work, being clothed with pure garments, and furnished with Pentacles,* Perfumes, and other things necessary hereunto, let him enter the Circle, and call the Angels from the four parts of the world, which do govern the seven Planets the seven dayes of the week, Colours and Metals; whose name you shall see in their places. And with bended knees invocating the said Angels particularly, let him say,

Magister igitur ieiunio, castitate & abstinentia ab omni luxu, purificatus, triduum totum ante Diem operationis, die ipso operationis mundis vestibus indutus, cum Pentaculis, fumigiis & rebus ad hæc necessariis, [111] ingredietur Circulum. Et à quatuor Mundi partibus, inuocabit Angelos qui præsunt septem Planetis, septem diebus hebdomadis, coloribus & metallis: quorum nomina, suo loco videbis. Et, genibus flexis inuocans nominatim dictos Angelos, dicet.

* Note the reference to pentacles, not the single pentacle described above.
O Angels [sic] supradicti, estote adjutores meæ petitioni, & in adjutorium mihi, in meis rebus & petitionibus.


O Angeli supradicti, estote adiutores meæ petitioni, & in adiutorium mihi, in meis rebus & petitionibus.


O angels spoken of before, be my helpers in these petitions, and help me in my affairs and petitions.

FB does not translate, but reads: "O Angeli! .. adiutores mihi & .."

Then let him call the Angels from the four parts of the world, that rule the Air the same day wherein he doth the work or experiment. And having implored specially all the Names and Spirits written in the Circle, let him say,

Deinde inuocabit Angelos à quatuor partibus Mundi, Aeri dominantes in die illo, in quo facit opus seu experimentum. Et imploratis speciatim omnibus nominibus & spiritibus in circulo circunscriptis, dicat:

O vos omnes, adjuro atque contestor per sedem Adonay, per Hagios, ò Theos, Ischyros, Athanatos, Paracletos, Alpha & Omega, & per hæc tria nomina secreta, Agla, On, Tetragrammaton, quòd hodie debeatis adimplere quod cupio.


O vos omnes, adiuro atque contestor, per sedem Adonay, per Agios, o Theos, Ischyros, Athanatos, Paracletus, Alpha & ω, & per [112] hæc tria nomina secreta: Agla, On, Tetragrammaton, quòd hodie debeatis adimplere quod cupio.


Agios: L1600: Hagios.

o Theos, Ischyros: L1600: ô Theos, Iscyros.

ω: L1600: omega.

"I adjure and call you all forth, by the seat of Adonay, and by Hagios, O Theos, Iscyros, Athanatos; Paracletus, Alpha & Omega, and by these three secret names: Agla, On, Tetragrammaton, that you at once fulfill what I desire"

Compare with version in the Lemegeton (Goetia, conjuration 2):

"and by the name Hagios, and by the seal [*seat] of Adonay and by Otheos, Iscyros, Athenatos; Paracletus and by these holly and sacred names Agla, On, Tetragrammaton and by the dreadfull Judgement of god; ... now without delay, to manifest what I desire."

These things being performed, let him read the Conjuration assigned for the day wherein he maketh the experiments, as we have before spoken; but if they shall be partinacious and refractory, and will not yeild themselves obedient, neither to the Conjuration assigned to the day, nor to the prayers before made, then use the Conjurations and Exorcismes following.

His peractis legat coniurationem diei assignatam, in qua facit experimentum: vt infrà dicemus. Quò si pertinaces & refractarij sint, neque obedientes se præstiterint coniurationi diei assignatæ, neq; precationibus antè factis: tunc vtere sequentibus Coniurationibus & Exorcismis.

An Exorcisme of the Spirits of the Air.

Exorcismus Spirituum Aereorum.

Nos facti ad imaginem Dei, dotati potentia Dei, & ejus facti voluntate, per potentissimum & corroboratum nomen Dei El, forte & admirabile vos exorcizamus (here he shall name the Spirits he would have appear, of what order soever they be) & imperamus per eum qui dixit, & factum est, & per omnia nomina Dei, & per nomen Adonay, El, Elohim, Elohe, Zebaoth, Elion, Escerchie, Jah, Tetragrammaton, Sadai, Dominus Deus, excelsus, exorcizamus vos, atque potenter imperamus, ut appareatis statim nobis hic juxta Circulum in pulchra forma, videlicet humana, & sine deformitate & tortuositate aliqua.

[We being made after the image of God, endued with power from God and made after his will, do exorcise you, by the most mighty and powerful name of God, El, strong and wonderful, (here name the spirit which is to appear,) and we command you by Him who spoke the word and it was done, and by all the names of God, and by the name Adonai, El, Elohim, Elohe, Zebaoth, Elion, Eserchie, Jah, Tetragrammaton, Sadai, Lord God Most High: we exorcise you, and powerfully command you that you forthwith appear unto us here before this circle in a fair human shape, without any deformity or tortuosity; come ye all such, because we command you by the name Yaw and Vau, which Adam heard and spoke; and by the name of God, Agla, which Lot heard, and was saved with his family; and by the name Joth which Jacob heard from the angel wrestling with him, and was delivered from the hand of his brother Esau; and by the name Anaphexeton, which Aaron heard and spoke, and was made wise; and by the name Zebaoth, which Moses named, and all the rivers were turned into blood; and by the name Eserchie Oriston, which Moses named, and all the rivers brought forth frogs, and they ascended into the houses of the Egyptians, destroying all things; and by the name Elion, which Moses named, and there was great hail, such as had not been since the beginning of the world; and by the name Adonai, which Moses named, and there came up locusts, which appeared upon the whole land of Egypt, and devoured all which the hail had left; and by the name Schema Amathia, which Joshua called upon, and the sun stayed his course; and by the name Alpha and Omega, which Daniel named, and destroyed Bel and slew the dragon; and in the name Emmanuel, which the three children, Sidrach, Misach, and Abednego, sung in the midst of the fiery furnace, and were delivered; and by the name Hagios; and by the seal of Adonai; and by Ischyros, Athanatos, Paracletos; and by these three secret names, Agla, On, Tetragrammaton, I do adjure and contest you; and by these names, and by all the other names of the living and true God, our Lord Almighty, I exorcise and command you, by Him who spoke the word and it was done, to whom all creatures are obedient; and by the dreadful judgment of God; and by the uncertain sea of glass, which is before the divine Majesty, mighty and powerful; by the four beasts before the throne, having eyes before and behind; and by the fire round about his throne; and by the holy angels of heaven; by the mighty wisdom of God, we do powerfully exorcise you, that you appear here before this circle, to fulfil our will in all things which shall seem good unto us; by the seal of Baldachia, and by this name Primeumaton, which Moses named, and the earth opened and swallowed up Corah, Dathan, and Abiram: and in the power of that name Primeumaton, commanding the whole host of heaven, we curse you, and deprive you of your office, joy, and place, and do bind you in the depth of the bottomless pit, there to remain until the dreadful day of the last judgment; and we bind you into eternal fire, and into the lake of fire and brimstone, unless you forthwith appear before this circle to do our will: therefore, come ye, by these names, Adonai, Zebaoth, Adonai, Amioram; come ye, come ye, come ye, Adonai commandeth; Saday, the most mighty King of Kings, whose power no creature is able to resist, be unto you most dreadful, unless ye obey, and forthwith affably appear before this circle, let miserable ruin and fire unquenchable remain with you; therefore come ye, in the name of Adonai, Zebaoth, Adonai, Amioram; come, come, why stay you? hasten! Adonai, Sadai, the King of Kings commands you: El, Aty, Titcip, Azia, Hin, Jen, Minosel, Achadan, Vay, Vaah, Ey, Exe, A, El, El, El, A, Hy, Hau, Hau, Hau, Vau, Vau, Vau, Vau.]

A Prayer to God, to be said in the four parts of the world, in the Circle.

Oratio ad Deum, quæ dici debet in quatuor partibus Mundi, in Circulo.

A Morule, Taneha, Latisten, Rabur, Taneha, Latisten. Escha, Aladia, Alpha & Omega, Leyste, Oriston, Adonay: O my most merciful heavenly Father, have mercy upon me, although a sinner; make appear the arm of thy power in me this day (although thy unworthy child) against these obstinate and pernicious Spirits, that I by thy will may be made a contemplator of thy divine works, and may be illustrated with all wisdom, and alwaies worship and glorifie thy name. I humbly implore and beseech thee, that these Spirits which I call by thy judgement, may be bound and constrained to come, and give true and perfect answers to those things which I shall ask them, and that they may declare and shew unto us those things which by me or us shall be commanded them, not hurting any creature, neither injuring nor terrifying me or my fellows, nor hurting any other creature, and affrighting no man; but let them be obedient to my requests, in all these things which I command them.


Amorule, Taneha, Latisten, Rabur, Taneha, Latisten, Escha, Aladia, Alpha & ω, Leyste, Oriston, Adonay, Clementissime Pater mi Cœlestis, miserere mei licet peccatoris, clarifica, in me, hodierno die, licet indigno filio tuo, tuæ potentiæ brachium, contra hos spiritus perticinacissimos: Vt ego te volente, factus tuorum Diuinorum operum contemplator, possim illustrari omni [120] sapientia, & semper glorificare, & adorare nomen tuum. Suppliciter exoro te, & inuoco, vt, tuo iudicio, hi spiritus, quos inuoco, conuicti, & constricti, veniant vocati, & dent vera responsa, de quibus eos interrogauero: dentque & deferant nobis, ea quæ per me vel nos præcipietur eis, non nocentes alicui creaturæ, non lædentes, non frementes, nec me sociosque meos, vel aliam creaturam lædentes, & neminem terrentes: sed petitionibus meis, in omnibus quæ præcipiam eis, sint obedientes.


Compare LIH, CXXXIII.33.

Amorule: L1600 and RT: "A Morule", but with drop case A, "Amorule" is probably intended.

illustrari: L1600: illustirari.

Then let him stand in the middle of the Circle, and hold his hand towards the Pentacle, and say,

Tunc stans in medio Circuli, teneat manum prope Pentaculum, & dicat:

Per Pentaculum Salomonis advocavi, dent mihi responsum verum.
Per Pentaculum Salomonis aduocati, dent mihi responsum verum.
By the pentacle of Solomon I have called you; give me a true answer.

Then let him say,

Deinde dicat:

Beralanensis, Baldachiensis, Paumachiæ & Apologiæ sedes, per Reges potestaiesiá magnanimas, ac principes præpotentes, genio Liachidæ, ministri tartareæ sedes: Primac, hic princeps sedis Apologiæ nona cohorte: Ego vos invoco, & invocando vos conjure, atque supernæ Majestatis munitus virtute, potenter impero, per eum qui dixit, & factum est, & cui obediunt omnes creaturæ: & per hoc nomen ineffabile, Tetragrammaton Jehovah, in quo est plasmatum omne seculum, quo audito elementa corruunt, aër concutitur, mare retrograditur, ignis extinguitur, tera tremit, omnesque exercitus Coelestium, Terrestrium, & Infernorum tremunt, turbantur & corruunt: quatenus citò & sine mora & omni occasione remota, ab universis mundi partibus veniatis, & rationabiliter de omnibus quæcunque interrogavero, respondeatis vos, & veniatis pacifice, visibiles, & affabiles: nunc & sine mora manifestantes quod cupimus: conjurati per nomen æterni vivi & veri Dei Helioren, & mandata nostra per ficientes, persistentes semper usque ad finem, & intentionem meam, visibiles nobis, & affabiles, clara voce nobis, intelligibile, & sine omni ambiguitate.

Beralanensis, Baldachiensis, [121] Paumachiæ & Apologiæ sedes, per Reges potestatesque magnanimas, ac principes præpotentes, Genio Liachidæ, ministri Tartareæ sedis: Primac, hic princeps sedis Apologiæ, nona cohorte: Ego vos inuoco, & inuocando vos coniuro, atque supernæ Maiestatis munitus virtute, potenter impero, per eum qui dixit, & factum est, & cui obediunt omnes creaturæ: & per hoc nomen ineffabile, Tetragrammaton Iehouah, in quo est plasmatum omne seculum, quo audito Elementa corruunt, aër concutitur, mare retrogradatur, ignis extinguitur, Terra tremit, omnesque exercitus Cælestium, terrestrium, & infernorum tremunt, turbantur & corruunt: quatenus cito, & sine mora, & [122] omni occasione remota, ab vniuersis Mundi partibus, veniatis: & rationabiliter de omnibus quæcunq; interrogauero, respondeatis vos, & veniatis pacificè, visibiles, & affabiles: & nunc sine mora, manifestantes quod cupimus: coniurati per nomen æterni, viui & veri Dei Heliorem, & mandata nostra perficientes, persistentes semper, usq; ad finem & intentionem meam, visibiles nobis, & affabiles, clara voce, nobis intelligibili, & sine omni ambiguitate.


Heliorem: L1565 has Heliore, with a tilde over the final e, which could be read "Heliorem" or "Helioren." Since the form "Elyorem" occurs in Liber Iuratus, I consider the former to be more correct. (97th name of God, Hedegård 2002, p. 112.) RT and FB both follow the reading in L1600: "Helioren."

intelligibili: RT: intelligibile.

BERALANENSIS, Baldachiensis, Paumachia, and Apologia Sedes, by the most mighty kings and powers, and the most powerful princes, genii, Liachidæ, ministers of the Tartarean seat, chief prince of the seat of Apologia, in the ninth legion, I invoke you, and by invocating, conjure you; and being armed with power from the supreme Majesty, I strongly command you, by Him who spoke and it was done, and to whom all creatures are obedient; and by this ineffable name, Tetragrammaton Jehovah, which being heard the elements are overthrown, the air is shaken, the sea runneth back, the fire is quenched, the earth trembles, and all the host of the celestials, and terrestrials, and infernals do tremble together, and are troubled and confounded: wherefore, forthwith and without delay, do you come from all parts of the world, and make rational answers unto all things I shall ask of you; and come ye peaceably, visibly and affably now, without delay, manifesting what we desire, being conjured by the name of the living and true God, Helioren [*Heliorem], and fulfil our commands, and persist unto the end, and according to our intentions, visibly and affably speaking unto us with a clear voice, intelligible, and without any ambiguity.

[Compare second paragraph with version in the Lemegeton (Goetia, conjuration 1).]

Visions and Apparitions.

QUibus ritè peractis, apparebunt infinitæ visiones, & phantasmata pulsantia organa & omnis generis instrumenta musica, idque fit à spiritibus, ut terrore compulsi socii abeant à Circulo, quia nihil adversus magistrum possunt. Post hæc videbis infinitos sagittarios cum infinita multitudine bestiarum horribilem: quæ ita se componunt, ac si vellent devorare socios: & tamen nil timeant. Tunc Sacerdos sive Magister, adhibent manum Pentaculo, dicat:

Visiones & apparitiones.

[Q]vibus ritè peractis, apparebunt infinitæ visiones, & Phantasmata pulsantia Organa, & omnis generis instrumenta [123] Musica: idque fit à Spiritibus, vt terrore compulsi socij, abeant à Circulo: quia nihil aduersus Magistrum possunt. Post hæc videbis infinitos sagittarios, cum infinita multitudine bestiarum horribilem: quæ ita se componunt, ac si vellent deuorare socios, & tamen nil timeant. Tunc Sacerdos siue Magister, adhibens manum Pentaculo, dicat:

These things being duly performed, there will appear infinite visions, apparitions, phantasms, &c. beating of drums, and the sound of all kinds of musical instruments; which is done by the spirits, that with the terror they might force some of the companions out of the circle, because they can effect nothing against the exorcist himself: after this you shall see an infinite company of archers, with a great multitude of horrible beasts, which will arrange themselves as if they would devour the companions; nevertheless, fear nothing.

Then the exorcist [*priest or master], holding the pentacle in his hand, let him say, [Compare LIH CXXXIII:47. Note the Anti-Catholocism evident in Barrett's translation.]

Fugiat hinc iniquitas vestra, virtute vexilli Dei.
Fugiat hinc iniquitas vestra virtute vexilli Dei.
Avoid hence these iniquities, by virtue of the banner of God. [Better: Fly away with your iniquities.... -JHP]

Et tunc Spiritus obedire magistro coguntur, & socii nil amilius videbunt.

Et tunc Spiritus obedire Magistro coguntur: & socij nil amplius videbunt.

Then will the spirits be compelled to obey the exorcist, and the company shall see them no more.

Then let the Exorcist say, stretching out his hand to the Pentacle,

Deinde Exorcizator, tenens manum prope Pentaculum, dicat:

Ecce Pentaculum Salomonis, quod ante vestram adduxi præsentiam: ecce personam exorcizatoris in medio Exorcismi, qui est optimà à Deo munitus, intrepidus, providus, qui viribus potens vos exorcizando invocavit & vocat. Venite ergo cum festinatione in virtute nominum istorum, Aye, Saraye, Aye, Saraye, Aye Saraye, ne differatis venire, per nomina æterna Dei vivi & veri Eloy, Archima, Rabur: & per hoc præsens Pentaculum, quod super vos potenter imperat: & per virtutem coelestium Spirituum dominorum vestrorum: & per personam exorcizatoris, conjurati, festinati venire & obedire præceptori vestro, qui vocatur Octinomos.
Ecce Pentaculum Salomonis, quod ante vestram adduxi præsentiam: ecce personam exorcizatoris, in medio exorcismi, qui est optimà [124] à Deo munitus, intrepidus, prouidus, qui viribus potens, vos, exorcizando, inuocauit, & vocat. Venite ergo cum festinatione, in virtute nominum istorum, Aye, Saraye, Aye, Saraye, Aye Saraye, ne differatis venire, per nomina æterna Dei viui & veri Eloy, Archima, Rabur: & per hoc præsens Pentaculum quod super vos potenter imperat: & per virtutem Cælestium Spirituum, Dominorum vestrorum: & per personam Exorcizatoris, coniurati, festinati venire, & obedire præceptori vestro qui vocatur Octinomos.
Behold the pentacle of Solomon, which I have brought into your presence; behold the person of the exorcist in the middle of the exorcism, who is armed by God, without fear, and well provided, who potently invocateth and calleth you by exorcising; come, therefore, with speed, by the virtue of these names; Aye Saraye, Aye Saraye; defer not to come, by the eternal names of the living and true God, Eloy, Archima, Rabur, and by the pentacle of Solomon here present, which powerfully reigns over you; and by the virtue of the celestial spirits, your lords; and by the person of the exorcist, in the middle of the exorcism: being conjured, make haste and come, and yield obedience to your master, who is called Octinomos.

His peractis, sibiles in quatuor angulis mundi. Et videbis immediate magnos motus: & cum videris, dicas:

His peractis, sibilet in quatuor Angulis mundi. Et videbis immediatè magnos motus: & cum videris, dicas:

This being accomplished, you should whistle towards the four parts of the world, and you will immediately see great movements, and when you see this, say:

[(My tr.) Barrett's translation reads: "This being performed, immediately there will be hissings in the four parts of the world, and then immediately you shall see great motions; which when you see, say..." However, this is clearly inconsistent with the Latin text. The true meaning is evident by comparing with Liber Iuratus, which contains elaborate instructions for preparing a magic whistle used to call forth the spirits. Unfortunately, Lisiewski (Ceremonial Magic, 2004, p. 166.) and others have perpetuated Barrett's mistake.]

Quid tardatis? quid moramini? quid factis? præparate vos & obedite præceptori vestro, in nomine Domini Bathat, vel Vachat super Abrac ruens, superveniens, Abeor super Aberer.
Quid tardatis? quid moramini? quid facitis? præparate vos, & obedite [125] Præceptori vestro, in nomine Domini Bathat, vel Vachat super Abrac ruens, superuiuens, Abeor, super Aberer.
superuiuens: L1600, RT: superveniens.

Why stay you? Wherefore do you delay? What do you? Prepare yourselves to be obedient to your master in the name of the Lord, Bathat or Vachat rushing upon Abrac, Abeor coming upon Aberer.

Tunc immediatè venient in sua forma propria. Et quando videbis eos juxta Circulum, ostende illis Pentaculum coopertum syndone sacro, & discooperiatur, & dicat:

Tunc immediatè venient, in sua forma propria. Et quando videbis eos iuxta circulum, ostende illis Pentaculum coopertum sindone sacro, & discooperiatur, & dicat:

Then they will immediately come in their proper forms; and when you see them before the circle, shew them the pentacle covered with fine linen; uncover it, and say,
Ecce conclusionem vestram, nolite fieri inobedientes.
Ecce conclusionem vestram, nolite fieri inobedientes.
Behold your conclusion if you refuse to be obedient;

Et subito videbis eos in pacifica forma: & dicent tibi, Pete quid vis, quia nos sumus parati complere omnia mandata tua, quia dominus ad hæc nos subjugavit. Cum autem apparuerint Spiritus, tunc dicas,

Et subitò videbis eos in pacifica forma: & dicent tibi, Pete quid vis, quia nos sumus parati complere omnia mandata tua, quia Dominus ad hæc nos subiugauit. Cùm autem apparuerint Spiritus, tunc dicas:

and suddenly they will appear in a peaceable form, and will say, Ask what you will, for we are prepared to fulfil all your commands, for the Lord hath subjected us hereunto. Then let the exorcist say,
Bene veneritis Spiritus, vel reges nobilissimi, quia vos vocavi per illum cui omne genu flectitur, coelestium, terrestrium & infernorum: cujus in manu omnia regna regum sunt, nec est qui suæ contrarius esse possit Majestati. Quatenus constringo vos, ut hic ante circulum visibes, affabiles permanetis, tamdiu tamque constantes, nec sine licentia mea recedatis, donec meam sine fallacia aliqua & veredicè perficiatis voluntatem, per potentiæ illius virtutem, qui mare posuit terminum suum, quem præterire non potest, & lege illius potentiæ, non pertransit fines suos, Dei scilicet altissimi, regis, domini, qui cuncta creavit, Amen.
Bene veneritis Spiritus, vel Reges nobilissimi: quia vos vocaui per illum, cui omne genu flectitur Cœlestium, terrestrium & infernorum: [126] cuius in manu omnia Regna Regum sunt: nec est qui suæ contrarius esse possit maiestati. Quatenus constringo vos, vt hic ante Circulum visibes, affabiles permanetis: tam diu, tamque constantes, nec sine licentia mea recedatis, donec meam, sine fallacia aliqua & veredicè perficiatis voluntatem, per potentiæ illius virtutem, qui mari posuit terminum suum, quem præterire nemo potest, & lege illius Potentiæ, non pertransit fines suos, Dei scilicet, Altissimi Regis, Domini, qui cuncta creauit, Amen.
veridicè: L1600, RT: veredicè.

nemo: L1600, RT: non.

Welcome spirits, or most noble princes, because I have called you through Him to whom every knee doth bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; in whose hands are all the kingdoms of kings, neither is there any able to contradict his Majesty. Wherefore, I bind you, that you remain affable and visible before this circle, so long and so constant; neither shall you depart without my licence, until you have truly and without any fallacy performed my will, by virtue of his power who hath set the sea her bounds, beyond which it cannot pass, nor go beyond the law of his providence, viz. of the Most High God, Lord, and King, who hath created all things. Amen.

Then command what you will, and it shall be done. Afterwards license them thus:

Tunc iube quod vis, & fiet. Post hæc licentia eos sic:

+ In nomine Patris, + Filii, & + Spiritus Sancti, ite in pace ad loca vestra: & pax sit inter nos & vos, parati sitis venire vocati.
+ In nomine Patris, Filij, & Spiritus Sancti, ite in pace ad loca vestra: & pax sit inter nos & vos, parati sitis venire vocati.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, go in peace unto your places; peace be between us and you; be ye ready to come when you are called.


These are the things which Peter de Abano hath spoken concerning Magical Elements.

But that you may the better know the manner of composing a Circle, I will set down one Scheme; so that if any one would make a Circle in Spring-time for the first hour of Lords day, it must be in the same manner as is the figure following.

Hæc sunt quæ Petrus de Abano [127] de Magicis elementis dixit.


Vt autem facilius Rationes Circuli
possis cognoscere, subducam schema
vnum. Sit ita, vt aliquis velit
Veris tempore, prima
hora Diei Dominicæ

Circulum facere, is erit eiusmodi,
qui in Figura
sequenti conspi=
citur.


subducam ("I will convey"): L1600: subiiciam ("I will expose").

The figure of a Circle for the first hour of the Lords day, in Spring-time.

Compare with the version in Gollancz' Hebrew Key of Solomon (Mafteah Shelomoh) fol 40a and that in the Oriental ms.

It remaineth now, That we explain the week, the several dayes thereof: and first of the Lords day.

Super est nunc vt Hebdomadam exploremus, singulosque Dies, & Spiritus qui illis præsunt: & primò de die Dominico.

singulosque Dies: L1600: singulosq; illius dies.

Considerations of the Lords day

Considerationes Diei Dominicæ

[129]

Angelus Diei Dominicæ, & Sigillum eius, Planeta eius, & signum Planetæ, & nomen quarti Cœli.

This section is ultimately derived from Sepher Razielis. The seven Heavens in Raziel are listed as "Shamayim, Raquia, Shehaqim, Machonon, Machon, Zebul, Araboth." Heptameron associates these with the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn respectively, i.e. the normal order of planets reversed.

"Machen" in Heptameron thus corresponds with "Machonon" in Raziel.

The Spirits of the Air of the Lords day, are under the North-winde; their nature is to procure Gold, Gemmes, Carbuncles, Riches; to cause one to obtain favour and benevolence; to dissolve the enmities of men; to raise men to honors; to carry or take away informities. But in what manner they appear, it's spoken already in the former book of Magical Ceremonies.

The Spirits of the Air of Wednesday are subject to the South-west-winde: their nature is to give all Metals; to reveal all earthly things past, present and to come; to pacifie judges, to give victories in war, to re-edifie, and teach experiments and all decayed Sciences, and to change bodies mixt of Elements conditionally out of one into another: to give informities or health; to raise the poor, and cast down the high ones; to binde or lose Spirits; to open locks or bolts: such-kinde of Spirits have the operation of others, but not in their perfect power, but in virtue or knowledge. The what manner they appear, it is before spoken.

vt in coniuratione diei Dominicæ.

Spiritus Aeris diei Mercurij, subijciuntur Africo. Eorum natura est, omnia Metalla dare, omnia terrena, præterita, præsentia, & futura reuelare, iudices placare, victorias in prælio dare, experimenta, & omnes scientias destructas, reædificare, docere: & corpora ex Elementis mixta, conditionaliter vnum in aliud transmutare, infirmitates, vel sanitatem dare, pauperes sublimare, sublimes deprimere, Spiritum, vel Spiritus ligare vel dissoluere, seras aperire. Tales [148] spiritus operationes aliorum habent, sed non ex perfecta potentia, sed in virtute vel scientia. Quomodo autem compareant dictum est libro superiore.

Compare with LIH, Cap. CVI: "Concerning the Spirits of Jupiter: Others are Jovial and are these: Satquiel, Raphael, Pahamcocihel, Asassaiel, and their nature is joy, love, gladness, and are assigned to performing benevolence and gratitude of all persons, the dews, the flowers, the grasses and the leaves to beget and to withdraw, and their region is between the South and East, and four demons are under these, namely one king and his three attendants, with which all other demons of Jupiter are subjugated, and they are Formione the king, Guth, Maguth, and Guthryn, which three demons are subject to the North winds. And those of the East, which are five, are Harith, Iesse, Ryon, Nesaph, Naadob, they are may be compelled to serve, or they rest. Their bodies are of medium stature, and their color is like the color of the sky, or of crystal." (My translation.)

But because there are no Angels of the Air to be found above the fifth heaven, therefore on Thursday say the prayers following in the four parts of the world.

Sed quoniam vltra quintum Cœlum Angeli aeris non reperiuntur, ideo die Iouis, dic in quatuor Mundi partibus orationes sequentes.

The Spirits of the Air of Saturday1 are subject to the Southwest-winde: the nature of them is to sow discordes, hatred, evil thoughts and cogitations; to give leave [*lead]2 freely, to slay and kill every one, and to lame or maim every member. Their manner of appearing is declared in the former book.

But this is to be observed by the way, that the first hour of the day, of every Country, and in every season whatsoever, is to be assigned to the Sun-rising, when he first appeareth arising in the horizon: and the first hour of the night is to be the thirteenth hour, from the first hour of the day. But of these things it is sufficiently spoken.
