A History of the Practice of Witchcraft
by Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold
Hardback with dustjacket.
Published in 2009.
"Arts of the Night invites the reader into a history of the practices of witchcraft by focusing on Mesopotamia as the possible cradle for the arts and crafts popularly assigned to what we name as 'witches'. In this book it is suggested that witchcraft is a poetic reality that pertains to humankind at large. It is my hope that this tome will heighten the awareness of the Wise Arts being originally a traditional vestige of the great mysteries. In our corrupted world, marked by all forms of traditional deviations, I present this work in the hope that it can aid a little bit to restoring the Craft to its rightful place and order."
