Stellas Daemonum (hc) by David Crowhurst

US$60.00

Stellas Daemonum offers an in-depth analysis of the spirits that appear in several late medieval and early modern grimoires. The book unravels these texts' mythical, etymological, magical, and religious dimensions and, most importantly, draws out their astrological correspondences. The author shows how the spirit entities featured in these goetic grimoires can be best understood by studying the celestial nature apparent in the ancient concept of the daimon and through an extensive study of ninety-three of the spirits featured in the medieval and Renaissance texts. The nature of this work is strongly influenced by the author's own magical practices, but its presence does not resort to subjective or personal experiences, having a style that is more formal and research-based. A 6.69" x 10.08" Hardcover book with 368 pages.
