The Key of Knowledge (Clavicula Salomonis)

Transcribed from British Library, Additional manuscript 36674.

Edited by Joseph H. Peterson, Copyright © 1999. All rights reserved. Updated May 30, 2019.

The present text is a sixteenth century English translation of the Key of Solomon, the most famous of Grimoires, or handbooks of magic.

In producing his 1889 edition of the Key of Solomon, three manuscripts escaped S.L. Mathers' attention, or he chose to neglect them. They are Sloane 3645, 3847, and Additional Ms. 36,674. All three are in English. It is not clear to me why he did not mention them, but they do not in fact seem to have been used by him, as the wordings and layout are quite different. Mathers' translation seems to be mainly from the Colorno class of manuscripts written in French.

The following is a complete transcription of the English Key of Solomon from Add. 36674, with alternate readings from Sl. 3645. The Add. manuscript dates to mid- to late-16th century. Add. 36674 also appears to be in the same hand as that found in the beginning of Sloane 3854. Sl. 3645 is dated 17th century [1], and seems to be based solely on the earlier manuscript. The drawings included here are based on those in the Sloane manuscript, as they are more legible, and were copied very closely from the older manuscript.

The catalog entry reads as follows:

36674.  COLLECTIONS relating to Magic and Witchcraft from the papers
        of various 16th and 17th century astrologers, finally put together
        probably in the library of John Somers, Lord Somers (v. catalogue
        in Harl. MS. 7191, f. 158 b). The table of contents on f. 3 is in
        the same hand as Somers' catalogue. Artt. 1-4 belonged early in
        the 17th cent. to Gabriel Harvey, the poet and friend of Spenser,
        who has annotated them throughout (compare the hand with
        Add. MS. 32494). Art. 10 and probably some other articles were
        collected by Elias Ashmole. Later owners are noticed below.
    Contents:-
    1. "Here begynneth the booke of Kynge Solomon called the Kay
        of Knowledge," to which Harvey adds "Clavicula Salomonis.
        Extat Latine: et legi." In two books. There are many treatises
        with similiar titles, but this does not agree with the Clavicula
        edited by S. L. M. Mathers (London, 1889), nor with the treatise
        known as Lemegeton. The first rubric is "Orysons to be sayde
        when you coniure," and the last "Here follow the the manner howe
        to make the Pentacle." In a late 16th cent. hand. f. 5.

Contrary to what the catalog entry states, nearly all of this text does in fact closely parallel Mathers' edition, although the wording is simpler in the present text.

It is also full of Christian references which are absent in Mathers' edition and other manuscripts of the Clavicula.

Regarding the third early English translation, Sloane MS 3847, although it has many parallels with the two English manuscripts represented in the present text, it does not seem to be directly related. Rather, it appears to be an independent translation, probably from the Italian or Latin. It is not included in the present edition.

I have taken the liberty of moving the table of contents for book 2 to the beginning of this transcript for convenience.

Amen. Lord Jesus Christ, the loving son of God, which dost illuminate the hearts of all men in the world, lighten the darkness of my heart, and kindle the fire of thy most holy love in me. Give me true faith, perfect charity, and virtue, whereby I may learn to fear and love thee and keep thy commandments in all things; that when the last day shall come, the angel of god may peaceably take me, and deliver me from the power of the devil, that I may enjoy everlasting rest amidst the company of the holy saints, and sit on thy right.

I confess furthermore that I have sinned in pride, in anger, in glottony, and in whatsoever man's frailty may sin, I have sinned. Therefore I pray you all the saints, in whose sight all these things I have confessed, that you witness with me in the day of judgment, against the devil, and so I being clean and confessed of all my sins, let me appear before thee (O Most High) righteous, and grant thy grace to me by thine ineffable clemency, that I may see and know all the spirits which I would have, and accomplish my will and desire.

Straight way after, let him begin to conjure those spirits, as that art doth command, which then he hath in hand, which done they will appear quickly. If not, then call them as followeth and know that if they were bound in iron they wyll come, or send a messenger.

In those days, Jesus was led into the wilderness of the spirit to be tempted of the devill, and after he had fasted forty days he was an hungered, and the devil the temptor, coming unto him, said: "If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones may be made bread." Jesus answering said: "It is written, that man liveth not only with bread, but with every word which cometh out of the mouth of God. Then the devil led him into the holy city, and set him upon the pinnacle of the church, and said unto him: "If thou be the Son of God, cast down thyself headlong, for it is written that he hath given his angels commandment over thee, and they shall take thee up in their hands, lest thou should be hurt." Jesus said unto him: "Again it is written, 'Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.' Again the devil took him up into a very high hill, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and said: "All these I will give thee if thou wilt fall down before me and worship me." Then Jesus said: "Avoid, Satan, for it is written that thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." Then the devil left him, and his angels came and ministered unto him.
