The Keys of Solomon are two distinct grimoires, or books on magic incorrectly attributed to King Solomon. They likely date back to the 14th or 15th century Italian Renaissance, and present a typical example of Renaissance magic. It is possible that the Greater Key of Solomon inspired later works, particularly the 17th century grimoire also known as Clavicula Salomonis or The Lesser Key of Solomon, although there are many differences between the books. Many such grimoires attributed to King Solomon were written in this period, ultimately influenced by earlier (High Medieval) works of the Jewish kabbalists and Arab alchemists, which in turn hark back to Greco-Roman magic of Late Antiquity. Several versions of the Key of Solomon exist, in various translations, and with minor or significant differences.Présentation de l'éditeur :
The Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis) was translated from Latin manuscripts within the British Library by S. L. MacGregor Mathers in 1888. "IN presenting this celebrated magical work to the student of occult science some few prefatory remarks are necessary. The Key of Solomon, save for a curtailed and incomplete copy published in France in the seventeenth century, has never yet been printed, but has for centuries remained in Manuscript form inaccessible to all but the few fortunate scholars to whom the inmost recesses of the great libraries were open. I therefore consider that I am highly honoured in being the individual to whose lot it has fallen to usher it into the light of day." S.L MacGregor Mathers, London, 1888
