Written by King James I and published in 1597, the original edition of Demonology is widely regarded as one of the most interesting and controversial religious writings in history. The tome, written in the language of its day, has been notoriously difficult to understand.
Now occult scholar Donald Tyson has modernized and annotated the original book, making this historically important text accessible to modern readers. Tyson chronicles King James' obsession with demons, their alleged attempts on his life, and the first recorded witch trials. He also offers a knowledgeable and sympathetic look at the details of the magick and witchcraft of the period. Demonology features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English text in its entirety.

Über den Autor Donald Tyson

Donald Tyson est originaire d'Halifax, Nouvelle-Écosse. Très tôt attiré par la science à travers sa fascination pour l'astronomie, il fabrique son propre télescope à l'âge de huit ans. À l'université, il entame des études scientifiques mais, rebuté par l'aridité d'une vision mécaniste de l'univers, il opte pour des études d'anglais. Depuis l'obtention avec les honneurs de son diplôme, il mène une carrière d'écrivain et se consacre désormais à la recherche de la connaissance absolue de l'art de la magie, en théorie comme en pratique.
