The Theban Oracle: Discover the Magic of the Ancient Alphabet That Changes Lives by Greg Jenkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Magic with the Theban Runes
No one knows where the Theban Runes originated but they were used by Honorious to write a grimoire. The secret alphabet was meant to conceal from church authorities the real contents of the grimoire. The grimoire itself was compiled by number of popes and magi. The grimoire itself consists of 7 book and 93 chapters. The book is meant to be passed down to a worthy successor. The complete work is not in tact but rather in bits of pieces.
The book itself is simple in outlay. The first part consists of relaying the history. The second part informs the reader on the different types of spreads. The meat of the book deals with the symbols and their divinatory meaning. Connected to each symbol is a historical personage along with meaning and the meaning of the stone in reverse.
The latter half of the book deals with some simple spells and the progresses into correspondences. Finally it covers cleansing and making your tools.
The book is an easy pleasurable read that makes following the instructions rather easy. The spells are easy to perform and understand. What I am not sure of is how accurate the divinatory meanings are. There are good sources listed at the end and the author is well educated. Now is the info based on research or is it based on unverified personal gnosis?
