Magic And Witchcraft

Magic And Witchcraft Image

Book: Magic And Witchcraft by George Moir

This book of the worthy Church-Coimsellor is rather a singular one : it is not a history of Magic, but a sort of spiiitual periodical, or magazine of infernal science, supported in a great measure by contributions from persons of a ghostly turn of mind, who, although they affect occasionally to write in a Sadducee vein, are many of them halfbelievers at heart, and would not walk through a churchyard at night, except for a consideration larger than we shoidd like to pay. The field over wliich it travels is too extensive, for us to attempt to follow the author throughout his elaborate subdivisions. Dante divided hell, hke Germany, into circles; and Mr. Horst, adopting sometliing of a similar arrangement, has parcelled out the territoiy of the Prince of the Air into sundry regular divisions, by which its whole bearings and distances are made plain enough for the use of infant schools. It is only at one of the provinces of the Inferno, however, that we can at present afford to glance though for those who are inclined to make the grand torn', the Counsellor may be taken as an intelligent travelling companion, well acquainted with the road. In fact his work is so methodical and distinct, and the geography of the infernal regions so clearly laid do^Ti, according to the best authorities, from Jamblichus and Porphyry down to Glamil and the Abbe Fiard, that the whole flistrict is now about as well known as the course of the Niger ; and it must be the traveller's own fault if he does not find his exit from Avernus as easy as its entrance has proverbially been since the days of Viigil.
