The principal concern of the work is the Arcana of the Witch’s Eye and its mutual interaction with Sentient Luminosity. Treating the twin mysteria of Ocular Malediction (the so-called Evil Eye), and Seership or ‘The Sight’, the book proceeds beyond this duality unto the realm of Telaesthesis –the unique perceptual modalities of the Witches’ Sabbath, grand abberator of the sensorial field. Explored in detail is the magical relation between Hand and Eye, the Body of Void, and the vivification of the Magical Image. As a magico-poetic cartography of the illuminant metaphysic present in the folkloric strata of traditional witchcraft, The Light Heretical serves as both homage and grimoire to its Luciferan arcana.
