Summary

Written by King James I and published in 1597, the original edition of Demonology is widely regarded as one of the most interesting and controversial religious writings in history. The tome, written in the language of its day, has been notoriously difficult to understand.Now occult scholar Donald Tyson has modernized and annotated the original book, making this historically important text accessible to modern readers. Tyson chronicles King James' obsession with demons, their alleged attempts on his life, and the first recorded witch trials. He also offers a knowledgeable and sympathetic look at the details of the magick and witchcraft of the period. Demonology features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English text in its entirety.
