This two-volume set of Geosophia: The Argo of Magic is Jake Stratton-Kent's magisterial exploration of the development of magic from ancient Greece to the Grimoire tradition. Revealing a continuation of magical practice which encompasses the pre-Olympian worship of Dionysos and Cybelle, the Graeco-Egyptian Magical Papyri and the later traditions of Grimoire-rooted practice, Jake Stratton-Kent demonstrates conclusively that contemporary magical practice has its roots not in Solomon or Kabbalah, but ancient Greek Magic. Weighing these developments in terms of their implications for contemporary esoteric practitioners, Jake Stratton-Kent challenges us to take the rituals of our ancestors forwards into living magical practice.
