The Practice Of Magical Evocation
The Practice of Magical Evocation
A new translation of Franz Bardon's second volume of The Holy Mysteries. In magical terms, the book is a practical guide to the proper evocation of and communication with spiritual, magical and divine entities.

But beyond that, there is a fascinating glimpse into a complete magical universe.

Included with the names and descriptions of the various entities are a collection of previously unknown magical sigils, as well as a true account of ancient astrology.
