Overview

The Key of Solomon (Latin Clavis Salomonis or Clavicula Salomonis, Hebrew Mafteah Shelomoh (מפתח שלמה)), is a grimoire, a book on magic incorrectly attributed to King Solomon. It probably dates back to the 14th or 15th century Italian Renaissance. It presents a typical example of Renaissance magic.It is possible that the Key of Solomon inspired later works, particularly the 17th century grimoire also known as Clavicula Salomonis or The Lesser Key of Solomon, although there are many differences between the books.

According to the mythical history of the document, as recorded in its introduction, Solomon wrote the book for his son Rehoboam, and commanded him to hide the book in his sepulchre upon his death. After many years the book was discovered by a group of Babylonian philosophers repairing Solomon's tomb. None could interpret the text, until one of them, Iohé Grevis, suggested that they should entreat the Lord for understanding. The Angel of the Lord appeared to him and extracted a promise that he would keep the text hidden from the unworthy and the wicked, after which he was able to read it plainly. Iohé Grevis then placed a conjuration on the book that the unworthy, the unwise or those who did not fear God would not attain the desired effect from any of the workings contained therein.

This edition of The Key of Solomon is specially formatted for e-readers, includes original illustrations, and a Table of Contents.

    Powerful...

    The magic and spells contained in this book are most powerful. Do not take it lightly. It is a great book to use in conjunction with Christian Magick. The symbols and incantations in this book connect us with God...our most intimate Father.

    Not for the Faint of Heart

    This book is not for the faint of heart, nor for the person who has no idea what they're doing!! Be very wary with this book!
