Complete list of Leipzig University magical manuscripts (links)



 Magical circle used in conjuration


Due to Joseph Peterson s amazing generosity with information I found out about one of the most amazing depositories of occult manuscripts online. He notified all those interested in a short Facebook share that the Leipzig University Library (Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig) recently made available a collection online (Link here), with such works as  Clavicula Salomonis, Abramelin, Liber Razielis, Faust material, and many others. 


Seal of the spirit Belus


I spent my time since then researching these manuscripts, carefully noting the shelfmark, the name and what contents they have, especially seals, diagrams, characters and such. 

My private document, with direct links in the titles, could help others access this collection more easily, and help find relevant material whenever needed. 

I know I drew a lot of information and was immensely helped by Frank Klaassen s list over at Societas Magica, so I figured I should not keep this to myself.
This is of course a rough draft with practical uses, not an academic reference tool.

The list does not have a detailed account of the contents, the author, the incipit, the language, the date of redaction and other codicological information, but it is a start in beginning to analise the collection. 

The UniLeipzig website does not list them in any order in particular, so i chose to put them in order according to their shelf-mark. 

I have found 142 manuscripts, if there are more, I have yet to find them.

  2. You re too kind mister Griffin. My honor to be of help. My input is quite small compared to the had work put in by the staff of the Universitary Library of Leipzig. As I recall from one of your speaches, you might be one to actually read the manuscripts.

  4. The links seem to just be loading blank pages for me in chrome, but it is the same when I do it from the university site. Are you using any particular software/browser/viewer?

  11. I've been studying this collection for some time. I ran across it through the Dresden web site several years ago, but until a year or so ago could not establish a link to the collection. I've found a couple interesting things that might be of interest. Most of these mss appear in a small catalogue appended at the end of ps-trithemius's Veterum Sophorum Sigilla, 1732. The catalogue was issued by Friedrich Roth-Scholtz famous for his edition of the Deutsche Chemicum Theatrum. Roth-Scholtz has a short account of the collection prefacing his listing. One can down load the mss fro the Leipzig website but that can prove challenging. One can load only 50 pages at a time, After the first 50 pages the page order gets jumbled. The entire list is catalogued as text numbers which makes for a rather odd arrangement. Pages after that cross from two digits to three have to be prefaced with a leading zero (e.g. 080-120)
