Grimoire Verum and Mathers vs. Crowley.

Postby milkBoxx » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:00 pm

So, I've been doing some research into the art of evocation and it's lead me to the clavicles of Solomon
by Mathers as well as the Grimoire Verum. The Grimoire Verum has some very interesting material, and although
in the Mathers text that I'm currently reading Mathers strictly advises against the use of the Grimoire Verum
due to it's "black magick" content. I'm finding that both the Clavicles of Solomon (Edited by Mathers himself) and
the Grimoire Verum have uncanny similarities. As I've been comparing the two writings, I couldn't help but wonder
what Crowley's opinion would have been (due to his disassociation from Mathers) on Grimoire Verum? Any insights?

Always a good technique for taking one's mind of anything serious, and relaxing with a good "none of us could ever know" kind of idleness. :twisted:

FWIW (digression), of Crowley's two primary mentors, Allan Bennett was a Goetia man, and Cecil Jones favored the so-called 'Greater Key.'
