The Grimoire of St Cyprian: Clavis Inferni by Stephen Skinner, St Cyprian

Although it is highly unlikely that the text is by the historical St Cyprian, this does not detract from its extraordinary contents. This is a Solomonic manuscript unlike the more rustic Black Books of Wittenburg (Scandinavia), or the Catholic Cyprianic texts of the Iberian peninsula. Its lineage is from the "Heptameron," the Faustbooks of Germany, and the "Goetia." It addresses the summoning and use of the four Archangels, Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel as well as their opposite numbers, the four Demon Kings, Paymon, Maimon, Egyn and Oracus (Oriens). The later are drawn in their animal and human forms along with their sigils, a resource unique amongst grimoires.
The text is in a mixture of three magical scripts, Greek, Hebrew, cipher, Latin, and reversed Latin with many shortforms, but these are expanded and made plain by the editors. The title of the manuscript, "Clavis Inferni sive magia alba et nigra approbata Metratona," literally means 'The Key of Hell with white and black magic as proven by Metatron'.
