The Heptameron is a grimoire devoted to the angels of the seven days with diagrams of circles, magical sigils and conjurations of the ceremonial art. It includes magical images of the planets engraved by Bernhard Maler [1482] and tables showing correct planetary hours are included. Also included is The Arbatel of Magick, which belongs, with some notable reservations, within the mainstream of the history and tradition of the Ceremonial Magic of Europe. The aphorisms included here represent a kind of Theophrastic Magic. The initial groups of these aphorisms serve to introduce the Ritual of the Olympic Spirits, dwelling in the firmament and in the stars of the firmament, between whom the government of the world is distributed.
