Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King: Lemegeton - Clavicula Salomonis Regis Book 1
The Lesser Key of Solomon , also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis [note 1] or Lemegeton , is an anonymous grimoire or spell book on demonology. It was compiled in the midth century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older. Goetia is unfortunate, by the commerces of unclean spirits made up of the rites of wicked curiosities, unawful charms, and deprecations, and is abandoned and execrated by all laws. Weyer does not cite, and is unaware of, any other books in the Lemegeton , suggesting that the Lemegeton was derived from his work, not the other way around. The omission of Pruflas, a mistake that also occurs in an edition of Pseudomonarchia Daemonum cited in Reginald Scot 's The Discoverie of Witchcraft , indicates that the Ars Goetia could not have been compiled before
Goetia the Lesser Key of Solomon the King: Lemegeton, Book 1 Clavicula Salomonis Regis
It probably dates back to the 14th or 15th century Italian Renaissance. It presents a typical example of Renaissance magic. It is possible that the Key of Solomon inspired later works, particularly the 17th-century grimoire also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis , Lesser Key of Solomon or Lemegeton , although there are many differences between the books. Many such grimoires attributed to King Solomon were written during the Renaissance, ultimately being influenced by earlier works of Jewish kabbalists and Arab alchemists. These, in turn, incorporated aspects of the Greco-Roman magic of Late Antiquity.
