The Grimoiric Legacy of Jake Stratton-Kent

Quote:Gordon examines the grimoiric legacy of Jake Stratton-Kent. This largely breaks down into 3 main areas:

👁️‍🗨️ The centring of the Ancient Greek components of what we can broadly call grimoire magic.

👁️‍🗨️ The attempted rehabilitation of the blue grimoires.

👁️‍🗨️ Early efforts toward cross-cultural comparison between European magic and New World magic, in particular South American magic.

The grimoire revival and Jake's contribution is also explored.

Quote:Hadean Press’s Erzebet Barthold returns to the show this week, on the occasion of the release of Cyprian’s Offices of the Spirits -the posthumously published final volume in Jake Stratton-Kent’s Night School.

🗣 We talk about goetia.
🗣 We talk about the sublunar.
🗣 We talk about English Qaballa.

All the Jake hits, really. And, inevitably, we reminisce about the man himself:

His main ideas and contributions.
Who influenced him and who he influenced.
What future generations will make of his work.
Who he was as a friend and a person.

All in all, a lovely chat, and especially timely as the snappily-titled premium member course 'Grimoires: Our Greek Inheritance (The Jake Edit)' starts this weekend!
