Of the Appearance of the Spirits

THESE things being duly performed, there will appear infinite visions, apparitions, phantasms, & c. beating of drums, and the sound of all kinds of musical instruments which is done by the spirits, that with the terror they might force some of the companions out of the circle, because they can effect nothing against the exorcist himself after this you shall see an infinite company of archers, with a great multitude of horrible beasts, which will arrange themselves as if they would devour the...

With Us

WE might doubt whether angels or demons, since they are pure spirits, use any vocal speech or tongue among themselves or to us but that Paul, in some place says, if I speak with the tongue of men or angels --but what their speech or tongue is, is much doubted by many. For many think that if they use any idiom, it is Hebrew, because that was first of all, and came from heaven, and was before the confusion of languages in Babylon, in which the law was given by God the Father, and the gospel was...

Of Sympathetic Medicines

IN the year 1639, a little book came forth, whose title was, 'The Sympathetical Powder of Edricius Mohynus, of Eburo,' whereby wounds are cured without application of the medicine unto the part afflicted, and without superstition it being sifted by the sieve of the reasons of Galen and Aristotle wherein it is Aristotetically, sufficiently, proved, whatsoever the title of it promises but it hath neglected the directive faculty, or virtue, which may bring the virtues of the sympathetical powder,...

Of The Wonderful Virtues Of S Ome Kind Of Precious Stones

IT is a common opinion of magicians, that stones inherit great virtues, which they receive through the spheres and activity of the celestial influences, by the medium of the soul or spirit of the world. Authors very much disagree in respect of the probability of their actually having such virtues in potentia, some debating warmly against any occult or secret virtue lying hid in them others, as warmly, shewing the causes and effects of these sympathetic properties. However, to leave the se...

Become A True Magician

IT is fit that we who endeavour to attain so great a height should first study two things viz. First, how we should leave vain and carnal affections, frail sense and material passions Secondly, by what ways and means we may ascend to an intellect pure, and joined with the powers of the celestials, without which we shall never happily ascend to the scrutiny of secret things, and to the power of working wonderful effects, amp c. Now, if thou art a man perfect in thy understanding, and constantly...
