A classic grimoire remade from several source manuscripts with quality in mind. Utilizing Robert Turner's fine enduring translation, much work was done to help facilitate the accuracy of the Latin sourcework. Access to Turners Early translation and Latin source manuscripts can be accessed via links in the frontmatter of this work. In his writings he expounds and advocates the medical and philosophical systems of Averroes, Avicenna, and other Arabian writers. His best known works are the Conciliator differentiarum quae inter philosophos et medicos versantur (Mantua, 1472; Venice, 1476), and De venenis eorumque remediis (1472), of which a French translation was published at Lyon in 1593. The former was an attempt to reconcile Arab medicine and Greek natural philosophy, by answering questions concerning anatomy and physiology. This style of though was called the Paduan School for Medical Dialectics. It was considered authoritative as late as the sixteenth century. It has been alleged that Abano also wrote a grimoire called the Heptameron, a concise book of ritual magical rites concerned with conjuring specific angels for the seven days of the week (hence the title). It should not be confused with the Heptameron of Marguerite of Navarre. He is also credited with writing De venenis eorumque remediis which expounded on Arabic theories concerning superstitions, poisons, and contagions.[

About the Author:

Peter of Abano, a town in the vicinity of Padua, was born in 1250 and was a learned physician of his period, who attempted to conciliate the different medical systems and is supposed to have been the first European who quoted Averroes. He established himself at Paris, but at the instigation of jealous professional brethren he was accused of heresy and fled to his native place. At Padua a chair of medicine was created for him, but the accusation followed its victim; by some he was charged with denying the existence of demons, by others with obtaining his knowledge from seven imps whom he kept in a bottle. The Inquisition instituted a process, but the designed sufferer was delivered by death--as some say, on the eve of his execution. As a counterpoise, a century later his bust was placed in the town-hall of Padua. He remains, therefore, one of the moral martyrs of Magic.
