(NOTE: I’m not and have never been in university or college and thus I have no “institutionally recognised” education in literature, religion or any language other than English so don’t think that my opinion is substantial evidence to form solid conclusions.Do some research! I have never attempted to use magick or evoke a spirit of any sort and thus have no personal experience with magick and spirits as of yet.)
Greetings fellow occultists!
I have done an immense amount of reasearch into the Goetia(multiple versions), the Stegonographia by Johannes Trithemius, the Pseodomonarchia Daemonum by Johann Weyer alongside many other religious texts and medieval grimoires as well as BALG forums for better insight on the goetic demons and their personalities, experiences, similarities in energy and appearance etc. A part of me says “These entities can be explained as reactions of the mind to the given stimuli due to complex, intricate workings in the mind of The All” and another that says “These entities are to precise to be merely mental creation”.
There are many issues with the Goetia and all that it encompasses, yet we can not ignore the numerous claims of its effects, unless they are fools who proclaim a false truth! (which unfortunately and undoubtedly, there shall certainly be ). This leads to many other questions, such as: in what language are the enns’ spoken, what are the meanings of individual symbols within the sigils, where are the first appearances of these demons in known literature and other intriguing questions. With much time and effort, I hope to become a conjurer myself and write my own detailed, refined book on demons and their elaborate history to put to rest the concerns of those who have doubts in the Goetia.
… this is where you come in!
I can Google all the ancient pdf files I want, but as the title states, all accounts of the Goetic demons are welcome! If there is a text or grimoire you feel could be connected to the Goetia and any of it’s prayers, rituals, sigils, appearances of the demons, even conspiracy theories… anything that can be of use in tracing their language and true origins are all wanted and appreciated. Hopefully, this forum will bring light upon a dark topic .
