Stellas Daemonum

Stellas Daemonum

An original, beautifully produced work (see specifications, photos, and video below) that explores the “star demons” and their correspondences in magic and astrology as revealed in the medieval grimoires and classical esoteric texts. Includes: A translucent, velum dustjacket Three-piece genuine cloth case cover, with ¼ black cloth on the binding edge and red cloth material over heavy-weight binders board Three different hits of stamping, including gold and black designs on the boards with blind stamp frames and gold stamping on the spine A black endsheet is used to bind the text block to the case, with rounded back, headbands, and a ribbon marker Smythe-sewn binding Printed on quality, archival (acid-free), 55# natural colored paper, in soy ink Stellas Daemonum offers an in-depth analysis of the spirits that appear in several late medieval and early modern grimoires. The book unravels these texts’ mythical, etymological, magical, and religious dimensions and, most importantly, draws out their astrological correspondences. The author shows how the spirit entities featured in these goetic grimoires can be best understood by studying the celestial nature apparent in the ancient concept of the daimon and through an extensive study of ninety-three of the spirits featured in the medieval and Renaissance texts. The book also explores how Judeo-Christian traditions ultimately “demonized” such expressions due to their polytheistic roots and made punishable by death any attempts to reconnect with them.
