Overview

Also see the Theophania Publishing Edition of the Three Books of Occult Philosophy by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.

To the unprejudiced Reader.

AS the fall of man made himself and all other creatures subject to vanity; so, by reason thereof, the most noble and excellent Arts wherewith the Rational soul was indued, are by the rusty canker of Time brought unto Corruption. For Magick itself, which the ancients didso divinely contemplate,
is scandalized with bearing the badge of all diabolical sorceries: which Are (saith Mirandula) Pauci intelligum, multi reprehendunt, & ficut canes ignotos semper allatrant: Few understand, many reprehend, and as dogs bark at those they know not: so do many condemn and hate the things they understand not. Many men there are, that abhor the very name and word Magus, because of Simon Magus, who being indeed not Magus, but goes, that is, familiar with evil Spirits, usurped that Title. But Magicke and Witchcraft are far differing Sciences; whereof Pliny being ignorant, scoffeth thereat: for Nero (saith Pliny) who had the most excellent Magicians of the East sent him by Tyridates king of Armenia, who held that kingdom by him, found the Art after long study and labour altogether ridiculous. Now Witchcraft and Sorcery, are works done merely by the devil, which with respect unto some covenant made with man, he acteth by men his instruments, to accomplish his evil ends: of these, the histories of all ages, people and countries, as also the holy Scriptures, afford us sundry examples.
