The Spiritual Wisdom of the Ancients
Translated by Robert Turner
Authored anonymously in the 16th century in Switzerland, Arbetel makes for a rather unique grimoire. In addition to promoting values such as community, charity and forsaking the common nothing of hermetic isolation, Arbatel is further incredibly honest with its origins, in a time where many occult works claimed to be written much earlier in far off lands, only to be “rediscovered” by the actual author,
Arbatel is based on the celestial order of “Olympic Spirits” and humanities relationship with them, based on correspondes to various planets and elements. It is a significant work for any student of grimoire magick or the Western Esoteric Tradition.
