Demons: Friends or Foes?
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
We will be diving into demonic magical texts in which demons are summoned to assist magicians in their work. From the late medieval period onwards, such texts present the demons as deceptive and malicious creatures, while introducing the magician as a powerful figure who is able to bend them to his will. Thus, even though they represented pure evil, the demons could also be quite helpful, for the “right” practitioner.
