For modern students of magic the Renaissance has an irresistible appeal. Yet, when confronted with the mass of material that such masters of the Art as Agrippa present, they are often overwhelmed. It is not just five hundred years that seperate us from them, but an entire attitude, a way of looking at the world. Schrodter helps us to bridge that gap and makes the visible and invisible worlds of the Renaissance Magi accessible to modern practitioners of the arcane arts. While not a book for beginners, it is an excellant adjunct to anyone attempting to read Cornelius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" or even the works of Dee, Ficino, Trithemius, or Albertus Magnus.
Willy Schrodter's Commentaries On The Occult Philosophy Of Agrippa provides an excellent specialized survey of Agrippa's works and philosophy and is recommended reading for any examining Agrippa's classics. Recommended reading for any studying Agrippa's philosophy or early occult literature.
