As it was seen in Summoning Magic post, one of the main material we have nowadays aboiut this subject is Lemegeton – The Lesser Key of Solomon, Solomon’s grimoire which is made of 4 books that list spirits, seals, and instructions on how to summon them. Accordingly to some researchers, there is a fifth book with notes and some general information.

The fist of these books is called Goetia, greek word for “sorcery”. In this book, we find a list of 72 demons with their respective seals. In this post, we are going to check the first 25 demons.These posts are merely illustrative and aim to contribute to the magical knowledge of each one. For information on how to summon the demons, in case of interest, we suggest a cautious reading of the book.
