Using the Greek Magical Papyri
How To Manuals
While the GMP is a must have for those who are interested in ancient Greco-Roman & Egyptian magical materials, some folks find the book a little off putting when trying to convert it to a how- to format. Fear not, for three authors have attempted this already for you.
Hermetic Magic: The Postmodern Magical Papyrus of Abaris edited and introduced by Stephen Edred Flowers, Ph.D. - The first of the books that attempts to take the information within the GMP and make it usable in today’s modern, sanitized society. A worthy exegesis. Highly recommended.
The Seven Faces of Darkness: Practical Typhonian Magic by Don Webb - Webb is a Setian, i.e a Satanist, who taps into the GMP and uses it to plug into its more nefarious aspects. His book is well written but he tends to focus more on spells like “to cause a breakup” or “to cause hatred”. Geared towards the malefic aspects and worthy if you wish to study the sinister.
Greco-Egyptian Magic: Everyday Empowerment by Tony Mierzwicki - When I first read this, I wasn’t impressed and didn't give it a good rating however upon the second recent re-reading, I am doubting my original inclinations. The manual is set up via planetary workings employing Egyptian temple workings. The planetary aspects are covered using invocations and passages from the GMP thus making it more accessible to a person in their everyday life. Recommended.
