This is Eliphas Levi’s (1810-1875) best-known book. This work arguably made Levi THE most influential writer on magic since the Renaissance. Originally published in French, the English translator is A.E. Waite and it is doubtful that anyone else could have better captured the essence of Levi’s work. The book is divided in two parts; the first is theoretical, the second practical. This is a fascinating and often debated work involving a discussion that covers almost the entire realm of Ritual and High Magic.
About the Author
Alphonse Louis Constant, better known by his pen name Eliphas Levi, was a master of the traditional Rosicrucian interpretation of the Kabbalah. He was born in France in 1810 and through the offices of the parish priest, was educated for the church at Saint-Sulpice. He was later expelled from seminary for teaching doctrines contrary to those of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1824 Levi began studying the occult sciences and wrote about magic and the Kabbalah for the next three decades. His other books include Transcendental Magic, Mysteries of the Qabalah and The Book of Splendours.Read more
