e-Book Wizards: A History (Dark Histories) epub download

by P. G. Maxwell-Stuart



Maxwell–Stuart’s history of the wizard from ancient times to the present shows just how extraordinary a character the wizard has proved to be-not merely a conjuring trickster or malicious egotist in league with Satan (though there have been plenty of both), but also a deeply religious person intent on using magic the better to understand the mind of. God. . Maxwell–Stuart is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of St. Andrews. He is an acknowledged expert on the occult and his other books include Witchcraft and Witch Hunters, both published by Tempus

An interesting study by Maxwell-Stuart, although lacking the depth of his other works into witchcraft and the witch-hunts. The approach is as scholarly as always and he calls upon a wide array of resources. The scope of the work is perhaps too broad however and the final impression is that MS lacked a focus.

From Simon Magus to Merlin, Faust to Cornelius Agrippa, the Comte de Saint Germain to Aleister Crowley, the magician has been both fêted and feared. An awesome figure in real life and in literature, he has retained his hold on the Western imagination in the teeth of scientific advance. P.G. Maxwell–Stuart’s history of the wizard from ancient times to the present shows just how extraordinary a character the wizard has proved to be—not merely a conjuring trickster or malicious egotist in league with Satan (though there have been plenty of both), but also a deeply religious person intent on using magic the better to understand the mind of God.
