The Grimoire of Pope Honorius

The first English translation of this Grimoire

 “One word upon this little book so much decried . The grimoire of Honorius is composed of an apocryphal “Constitution of Honorius II”, for the evocation and control of spirits; then of some superstitious receipts …it was a manual of the bad priests who practiced Black Magic during the darkest periods of the Middle Ages. You will find there bloody rites, mingled with profanations of the Mass and of the consecrated elements, formulae of bewitchment and malevolent spells, and practices which stupidity alone could credit or knavery counsel. In fact, it is a book complete of its kind; it is consequently become very rare, and the bibliophile pushes it to very prices in the public sales.

Eliphas Levi, “The Key of Mysteries”

This edition is the most complete and reliable presentation ever published and includes the sigils and illustrations known to be associated with this work. The Grimoire of Pope Honorius has been diligently translated by Ms. Kim Ch’ien from the Old German of 1220. This edition also includes an exhaustive bibliographic prolegomenon by Mr. John Davis. Appended to the work is a translation of the 15th century Ecclesiastic work, Coniurationes Demonum, translated from the Latin by Mr. Matthew Sullivan. Also included for scholars of medieval grimoires is a philologic study of the French and Italian editions of this work. The original German has been included to better enable the serious student to verify the quality of the translation. Also included is both the English and original French texts of the Constitution of Pope Honorius; while not a part of the German grimoire proper, it has been included to make this the most complete edition possible.
