Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, where writing and the first cities developed in the 4th Millennium BCE, is also the birthplace of Western Magick. Known as the Art of Marduk to the Babylonians, Magick was used in the earliest historical records for protection, healing, to bind and control spirits, and to gain the favor of the gods. Despite its foundational importance, very few modern witches or magicians know much about the Mesopotamian origins of their art. Sumerian Exorcism, compiled by renowned occult scholar Michelle Belanger, aspires to reveal this long forgotten knowledge to the contemporary reader. Containing illustrative examples of ancient Mesopotamian spells, along with commentary and explanatory essays, this book explores the beliefs and practices at the very heart of modern Witchcraft, Demonology, and Ceremonial Magick.
