The Book of Coelius, by Christopher Bradford
The Book of Coelius presents a new system of practical alchemy rooted in the Western Hermetic Tradition. Kameothic Internal Alchemy is a distillation of ceremonial, alchemical and African-American conjure magic utilizing the practical methods of Hoodoo paired with Spagyric Alchemy to create change in the external world by working upon the individual from the Outside-In. While the system has roots in antiquity, it is a new tradition begun by the author and his brothers in the Ordo Octopi Nigri Pulveri. This book is the training manual of that order.
Author Christopher Bradford covers such topics as the Language of the Birds, the use of the Picatrix, and describes alchemical tools of his own making, including the Staff of Imhotep. An explanation of the Spagyric Art as well as ritual practices and an analysis of Philalethes’ Font of Alchemical Truth are only some of the areas treated in depth and with the excruciating care one expects from an active practitioner of alchemy. Bradford, himself trained in the Hermetic Tradition, offers here an exciting new system for the practicing magician.
