Free download available in PDF, epub, and Kindle e-book formats. Skip straight to downloads.
Originally published in 1531-1533, De occulta philosophia libri tres, (Three books of Occult Philosophy) proposed that magic existed, and it could be studied and used by devout Christians, as it was derived from God, not the Devil. Agrippa had a huge influence on Renaissance esoteric philosophers, particularly Giordano Bruno. This edition is a pastiche of a portion of a translation of Agrippas' libri tres by an unidentified translator; excerpts from a book on Agrippa by Henry Morley with extensive background; and some self-promotional material by the publisher, L. W. de Lawrence.
This book has 285 pages in the PDF version. This edition was originally published in 1913.
Production notes: This e-book of The Philosophy of Natural Magic was published by Global Grey in 2018.
