Semiphoras and Schemhamforash: Now Available!
Now we turn to a work by Luppius; this time a lesser known gem of the occult literary world, usually combined with the Books of Moses into the same sort of philosophical bundle.
The overall system here is largely categorical and related to Judaist mysticism; it classifies the names of the Hebraic God, the names of his subordinate cosmic forces, the names of different stages of paradise, and so forth- through studying this work and praying fervently a person is capable of using, then, a series of incantations and prayers to protect themselves and do all manner of other powerful things. It has a great deal of similarity to the Ars Goetia in its classifications but provides no seals or sigils for the same, as they are unnecessary.
