Corrections, Secrets of Solomon (2018)

Since publication the following corrections are to be noted:

Page/line:
pg. i, line 21 “Longo, a tailor from Naples” should read: “Longo, a former Dominican monk, came from Naples, but perhaps a native of Rhodes”
pg. ii, line 3 Delete: “Viola was a Dominican monk from Padua.”
pg. ii, line 5 “Viola may have been the actual scribe” should read: “Longo may have been the actual scribe”
pg. ii, lines 14-20 Replace 'fertility issues, and invokes by the authority of both God and “the Most High Governess” (Gubernatrix altissima). Although Governess was sometimes used as an epithet of Mary the mother of Jesus, she is never mentioned in the text, and it would be highly unusual to refer to her as “Most High.” It is tempting to link the epithet rather to Amalthea (Greek “Tender Goddess”), since the spirits being invoked are referred to as the Amalthai.' With 'fertility issues. The chief spirits are referred to as the "Governesses” (Gubernatrices). It is tempting to link the epithet to Amalthea (Greek “Tender Goddess”), since the spirits being invoked are referred to as the Amalthai.'
pg. xiii, line 7 “perhaps Viola himself” should read: “perhaps Longo himself”
pg. 72, line 1 Replace "maker if Heaven" with "maker of Heaven"
pg. 84, lines 23-24 Replace “I invoke you O intelligences of the whole world, by order of the Most High Governess” with “I invoke you O Governess intelligences of the whole world, by order of the Most High”
