Stellas Daemonum offers an in-depth analysis of the spirits that appear in several late medieval and early modern grimoires. The book unravels these texts mythical, etymological, magical, and religious dimensions and, most importantly, draws out their astrological correspondences. The author shows how the spirit entities featured in these goetic grimoires can be best understood by studying the celestial nature apparent in the ancient concept of the daimon and through an extensive study of ninety-three of the spirits featured in the medieval and Renaissance texts. The book also explores how Judeo-Christian traditions ultimately demonized such expressions due to their polytheistic roots and made punishable by death any attempts to reconnect with them. The nature of this work is strongly influenced by the authors own magical practices, but its presentation does not resort to subjective or personal experiences, having a style that is more formal and research-based. A 6.69″ x 10.08″ Hardcover book with 368 pages.
