“For whosoever do, practicing through magical vanities, exorcisms, incantations and other demoniacal works and deceits of idolatry, brag that they can do miracles, I say all these shall be destined to the torments of eternal fire.” 

– Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa

 

Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa was an early 16th-century a German writer on the occult and theology. One of his most important works was “Incertitudine” or “Declamation of Arts and Sciences” which was a satirical account of the disappointing state of science during the 1520s. It was an important contributor to skepticism and philosophers such as Montaigne, Descartes, and Goethe. According to Jones, this book is

“one of the great classics of skeptical literature.”

 

This 1622 printing of “Incertitudine” covers a wide variety of occult topics including alchemy, astronomy, theurgy, magic rituals, summoning gods, discovering one’s psyche, mysticism and the cabala, Abraxas stones and charms, general magic and natural magic, dreams and dream interpreting, dangers of witchcraft, phantasms and miracles, and much more!

 

Agrippa’s aim with this work was

“to propose a cultural alternative, delineating a different philosophical approach, capable of forming a new intellectual élite, who would be seriously interested in the moral and religious progress of human community.” (SEP)
