Book Description

13 Oct 2005
The Dictionary of Magic provides fascinating explanations of all things magical - including creatures, rituals, spells and formulas. It includes entries on the meaning of secret symbols and the symbolism of rites of transformation, gives detailed information on the nature of all types of mythic beings, and examines the extent and context of claims to supernatural powers. The book introduces the reader to mystical traditions such as the Kabbalah, the Tarot, the Hermetic traditions and Gnosticism, putting them in their geographical and historical context, as well as looking at their sacred esoteric texts. It features biographies of leading figures in the field, recounts folklore and mythology from all over the world, examines cases of unexplained phenomena...and much, much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful reference book 12 Dec 2008
By Spirit of the Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had purchased the book Composing Magic: How to Create Magical Spells, Rituals, Blessings, Chants, and Prayer; this was one of the recommended reference books listed in Barrette's book. If you need a good dictionary that explains things of a magical nature in a simple and concise manner this is the book for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Help, I can't see. 30 Nov 2008
By David L. Hicks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great book but do not expect illustrations. Very few and I mean maybe 15 altogether. However, it is a excellent resource book and a keeper. I bought it with the promary intention of using the magical formulas and symbols to create a tattoo. No illustrations worth using for that.
