Demonology and Theology

ByNathaniel Holmes

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Nathaniel Holmes (or Homes) (1599–1678) was an English puritan, covenanter and prolific Calvinistic writer. He is described as a Puritan writer of great ability, and a scholar. In the following treatise, Holmes covers demonology, a study of the devices and black arts of Satan. He launches this study with 1 Timothy 4:1, “...giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” Holmes investigates the occult and the black arts in two ways: 1.Generally, considering them in their causes and means; and, 2. Specially, looking at particular arts pertaining to the operation of strange things like charms, luck, witchcraft, divination by familiar spirits, casting lots, necromancy and astrology (the section on astrology is astoundingly exhaustive and helpful). This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
