The Book of Abramelin: A New Translation
The Book of Abramelin is the first modern translation of this magical work since Mathers' original translation over 100 years ago. Not only is the language updated, but Georg Dehn, the compiler and editor, has sourced his work from all extant manuscripts, whereas Mathers used just one. The result is a stunning new translation. Abraham von Worms, long thought to be a pseudonymous figure, is nearly conclusively proved to be the well-known 14th century Jewish scholar, Rabbi Jacob ben Moses ha Levi Moellin, more commonly known as MaHaRIL. Some material attributed to him is still used in synagogues today.
