“In other news, I’ll debate the relative virtues of Archaic Goetia and authentically ‘traditional’ witchcraft when someone clarifies how they differ.” -Jake Stratton-Kent
In defense of this argument, I present to you this treasure, first shared with me by my dear friend (and the ever knowledgeable) Sfinga of With Cunning & Command, LIBELLUS VENERI NIGRO SACER, The Consecrated Little Book of Black Venus. 6 chthonic spirits, ruled by a black Venus… this sounds rather Witchmother to me!
I’d also like to point out the prevalence of the Grand Grimorie and the Book of Saint Cyprian that are embedded within traditional Mexican brujeria.
The essay “Infernal Conjure Craft” by Chad Barber published in Conjure Codex I from Hadean Press is a fine example of how this works in practice.
