The book of ceremonial magic; the secret tradition in Goëtia, including the rites and mysteries of Goëtic theurgy, sorcery, and infernal necromancy by Arthur Edward Waite ( Book )
43 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arthur Edward Waite writes ""The Book of Ceremonial Magic"" as a newer and more accurate edition of his previous title ""The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts, "" written in 1898. As most ancient texts on magical literature are rare and hard to come by, it becomes very difficult for modern scholars to ascertain an accurate knowledge of ancient spells and rituals. Waite responds to this lack of accessible literature and approaches this text as a methodical and systematic account of magical procedures of the past. He remains faithful to the original sources before making any conclusions by way

The author was among the first to study western occultism as a spiritual tradition rather than as pseudoscience or religion.

Waite makes it a point to extensively describe all source texts of the Grail legend--employing readable yet interesting prose

This is a fascinating and often debated work involving a discussion that covers almost the entire realm of Ritual and High Magic. </DIV>
