"Legends of King Solomon, his work with Angels and his command of "unclean spirits" were popular in medieval Roman Catholic Europe. In time, this generated a 'Solomonic' tradition among European mystics. These people were among the first to record aspects of their magickal traditions in book form- which we today refer to as 'Grimoires' (textbooks). Included in this genre are such titles as 'The Key of Solomon the King', The 'Lemegeton' or "Lesser Key of Solomon', Agrippa's 'Three Books of Occult Philosphy', Barret's 'The Magus', 'The Grand Grimoire' and many others."
Greetings! And welcome to my grimoiric mailing list - created as an on-line companion (of sorts) to Llewellyn's new 'Secrets of the Magickal Grimoires." Anything discussed in the book is on-topic here: from the grimoires and medieval magick, to the Greek mysteries, shamanism, Western history and religion, and even topics surrounding the work of such men as Tim Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, and John Lilly. -Aaron
