A Cunning Spellbook: Working with the Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet with Dr Alexander Cummins

September 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Contained in Sloane MS 3851 is a collection of charms, rituals, and operations for calling angels, summoning visions, detecting thieves, conjuring devils, scrying in stones, and using plant, animal, and mineral materiato work sorceries of enchantment, protection, lust, and healing.

This collection is held to have been assembled by one Arthur Gauntlet, an early modern cunning-man, not as an archive of spells and occult oddities to collect on a shelf but as a working repertoire of his magical wares, sorcerous services and cunning trade secrets. This grimoire is thus a testament to the professional.
