In this manner a remote and abstract magnificence has been allocated to the practical work; but between this aspect as we know it otherwise and that dream as it has been dilated in the forms of its expression there is the kind of relation which subsists between renown and its non-fulfilment.

If Magic in its proper and original meaning be synonymous with wisdom; if that wisdom, by virtue of this assumption which I have mentioned, were something inconceivably great, it is of certitude that it had no causal connection with the congeries of arts and processes which are understood by Practical Magic.

That there was, as there still is, a science of the old sanctuaries, I am certain as a mystic; that this science issued in that experience which imparts wisdom I am also certain; but it did not correspond to any of the arts and processes to which I refer here, nor to anything which can be received by the mind as the result of their exaltation. The consideration of a possibility thus already condemned is therefore ruled out of the inquiry which I have attempted in the present work.

I have also ruled out, as it will be seen, the distinctions which have subsisted between the good and evil side of the arts and processes, not that it does not exist on the bare surface, but because the two aspects dissolve into one another and belong one to another in the root that is common to both. The actual question before us is after what manner, if any, magical procedure draws anything from secret tradition in the past, and so enters into the general subject of such tradition, whether in Christian or anterior times.

It would and could only be of tradition on its worthless side, and it will not exalt a subject which the records of centuries have shewn to be incapable of being raised; it will, however, let us know where we are. But enough of that. You know when you had to write research papers in college and you were forced to find academic sources, so you type your query into your college's database and end up getting something with the most perfect title ever, only to click on it and find it's a book review instead of the information you need?

That's this book.

Arthur Edward Waite - The Book Of Ceremonial Magic (4.7 MB)

The book is basically just a bunch of book reviews of grimoires from the medieval era with some prayers stuck here and there and maybe Charlemagne's name thrown in to spice things up.

Maybe that's useful to someone else, but for a novice looking for information into the occult who thought this would be a great reference, oh my god I just wanted to throw this book against the wall. It's as dry as my mom's infamous pork chops and as far as I can tell all pages were not worth cutting down a tree for.

I even skipped ahesd to part two, which is supposed to be about how to do ceremonial magic. It just keeps going on and on about what different texts from the medieval era think. And then what he thinks about it. And then he throws in a bunch of prayers.

The Book of Ceremonial Magic

Jesus don't want your ceremonial occultism nonsense any more than I want to read it. And I mean, maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe I'm just annoyed, but really it's because I'm uneducated about practicing magick and when I learn a thing I'll be super ashamed of this judgement and I'll come back and shout praise for Waite from the mountain tops.

But for right now, quite honestly, I'd rather have some trees than this book. Anybody who is 35 years or older and got into the occult early on probably has read this book, considering it was one of the few books you could actually find with somewhat ease.

Considering the time it was a good book to have as an introduction but A. Waite was notorious for leaving critical stuff out of what he put into his books.

So nowadays be happy we have so many original source material so readily available and don't have to rely upon this.

I give it three stars mainly for the nostalgia Anybody who is 35 years or older and got into the occult early on probably has read this book, considering it was one of the few books you could actually find with somewhat ease.

I give it three stars mainly for the nostalgia. Jan 04, Edric Unsane rated it liked it Shelves: This may be an Occult classic, but it has become a bit outdated in terms of modern research.

The Book of Ceremonial Magic is still worth reading, but I would advise that the Reader move on to current author's like Owen Davies and Jake Stratton-Kent if you are interested in more accurate, and better annotated, pieces of literature which are similar to this work by A.

He is very critical and in my opinion thus ahead of his time.

D there is a lot ridiculous stuff, but then again it's from the middle ages. Thurough and thoughtful I had recently come across a series of particular manuscripts in languages that I don't speak common in my interests , and upon inquiring about one particular manuscript that I was hoping to find a pdf of in its original language and illustrations, I was directed to this book as it included the translation thereof.

As a practitioner of necromancy, I found the section on composite rituals to be of most interest. Though I did find it hard to tell when I was reading the tr Thurough and thoughtful Though I did find it hard to tell when I was reading the translators commentary or the translation itself, the way it was structured, I feel that this matters less to a practitioner, though would be quite important to a scholar. Ultimately, I would love to have a copy of this on my shelf, and I suspect it would be a great addition to any practitioner, and most scholars of the English speaking persuasion.

I would be interested in being a complete observer of such a ceremony, but never as a full participant. Dec 27, Royce rated it really liked it.

Great summary of the most important medieval grimoires. Occasionally Waite's own religious beliefs intrude on his commentary, but I feel like they don't distract from what he has presented. The authour's research and attention to detail has to be commended, it's interesting for the fact that he manages to debunk, with quite a bit of humour, the philosophy behind black magic while still giving some interesting insights into the history and culture of this subject.

The long tracts of rambling incantations of supposed warlocks is rather hard going, I used it as a aid to getting me to sleep when I had insomnia, worked a treat. An often erroneous work, Waite has however produced a well compiled work. There are translation errors and the occasional mislabelled sigil, yet the work remains valuable at the core.

For anyone interested in goetic magic, then Waite's work is a good primer. The best use is however as a reference from which to identify the core texts, thus allowing the procurement of clearer and corrected works from which to work. Feb 24, Ed Chen rated it liked it. I read this book when I was in 4th grade, and visiting Thailand. It was the only English language book at my cousin's place.

It scared the shit out of me and probably affected me in deep and weird ways. Nov 09, Peter Storm rated it it was ok Shelves: Good information as always by Waite yet very slow and dry reading. I love how Waite gloats that he manipulated all of the goetic ceremonies at critical points to "protect fools from their folly.

An interesting book on the topic. Definitely not for everyone considering the subject matter but I personally believe all sides of a subject deserve equal time. You can't know light without darkness. How to annoy infernal spirits.

Wordy and bizarre but I think it is the point. Who on earth has time? Aug 07, Hyperion rated it it was amazing Shelves: Detailed and lengthy.
