“Magike is mightie and foretelleth great matters.”
From Magi of the Ancient World to such notables as Agrippa, Dee, Faust, and Prospero. From the influence on popular culture and drama of the late Elizabethan Era’s Hermetic movement to the most famous instance of Witches in the world — and the most infamous of those who explored the Mystical Arts — the dark legend of Macbeth. A review of the Magician in Western Culture, this volume is the counterpoint to Fraser’s A Briefe Historie of Wytches. Anyone who has ever been interested in the Witches in Shakespeare’s Scottish Play — A Briefe Historie of Magi is for you.
