Quite an amazing discovery and an accomplishment, a real necromancer's manual that was never burnt. Please be aware this is a real scholarly publication with full text appended in 15thC. latin, not for teen wiccans or fans of Lovecraft. (Tho' they should be welcome, having some of the transgressive spirit of the Medieval clergy beyond the rood screen.)
One pities some of the operators, being of noble birth and disinherited ,like Claude Frollo himself and put into the celibate clergy, when they call on a magical horse,castle, barque, call on a lover within the circle &c.
I also worry for the wholesale abuse of doves and hoopoes (crack an egg it's just as etherically potent!)in the medieval era, no sacrifice is needed.
Discover the other works of 'Societas Magica', they are a Conclave as potent as any they research.
