Book The Black Arts

The Black ArtsL worship witchcraft evil charms and spells as well as other branches of occult theory The Black Arts is precisely what it claims to be a concise history of dark mystical practices throughout history if not exactly factual all the time This is fine as most of what it's talking about is fictitious anyway so it can be forgiven the handful of times that it affirms magic's successes in reality and a few cases of factual historical misrepresentation I didn't really buy it for that I bought it for its descriptions of black magic practices among some other fairly neutral mystical practices which curiously take up the larger portion of the book and in that regard it satisfied me greatly There is one glaring problem though which dampens my esteem for it As I just stated the section on the actual black magic arts is the minority in this book by a surprisingly large portion This would be forgiveable save for one unfortunate detail the sections on devil worship black mass necromancy psychic attack et cetera the sections of the book after which the entirety of it is named the climax of material excitement is also the most boringI suppose to someone who knows nothing about the material and who has a love of Christian blaspheming it would be entertaining than I found it but sadly I am me and my enthusiastic distaste for Christianity died down some time ago and the material just comes off as dry and repetitious and obsessive I am still mildly entertained by such things and the delightfully bizarre extent to which they carry their mockeries which included impaling live cats on spears but I was still overcome with a sense of tediousness at the near constant spiting to ChristianityAll in all it was a great and informative read and I recommend it to anyone but just a bit dry at the end for my taste

The Black Arts Mobi ì 368 pages Download ↠ Richard cavendish ó This text describes the practice theory and underlying rationale of black magic in all its branches the summoning and control of evil spirits necromancy psychic attack devil worship witchcraft evil charms and spells as well as other branches oThis text describes the practice theory and underlying rationale of black magic in all Since this book was written back in 1967 I wasn't too sure about whether to judge it by the standards of the modern day however it has been re released in recent years and Richard Cavendish the author is still alive so that's what I'm going to do Plus it's not as if the people from the 1960's are going to be reading this review anywayTo start with a positive the book is very widely researched and it is clear that Cavendish is highly well versed on the subject He accesses and engages with a very large amount of diverse source material to provide the information that he does Obviously a subject such as the 'black arts' is very wide reaching but he manages to give a view of many aspects of itUnfortunately the way that things are presented especially in the first half of the book feels a bit chaotic Reading it makes it seems like it was written in a stream of consciousness style which I'm sure it wasn't and it can be uite hard to keep up with everything that the author is writing The subjects seem to change without any thematic direct link and this can be frustratingAlso coming back to my earlier point about the standards of the 1960's being different from the standards of today this book is rather insulting to women It takes the tone that assumes that the person reading the book is a man which clearly isn't always going to be the case The book also emphasises the association of women with evil in many sections especially when talking about numerology and planets However the worst thing that this book does is actually provide instructions for a man to cast magic to actually sexually overpower a woman who had previously been unwilling 1967 or not that kind of thing is disgusting and should have been taken out with the re releaseI find that this book is best when it's discussing the historical aspect of things and that's not a bias due to the fact that I'm a history student but I just find that it concentrates itself and stays within the same theme Things such as the history of witchcraft Satanism and necromancy were fascinating topics and again shows Cavendish's wide researchThis book isn't the most readable of books that I've read so I'm not sure I'd recommend it simply for general reading unless you have a particular interest Perhaps try a modern author? I think maybe this book is best as a reference book if you actually wanted to try and perform one of these rituals or write some kind of fiction ad use this as a guide then I imagine it would be sufficiently reliable As general reading it is interesting but frustrating and a little shocking at points
