The Sworn Book (Liber Juratus) is one of the oldest and most influential texts of Medieval magic. It is believed that the text was compiled to help preserve the core teachings of the sacred magic, in the face of intense persecution by church officials. This was the first attempt at an English translation of this grimoire. Scholars have often noted that Driscoll's version of the Sworn Book is incomplete and innacurate in places, as well as stating that he took some serious liberties with the texts, etc.
