The Grimoire of Honorius was described by A.E. Waite as
"perhaps the most frankly diabolical of the Rituals connected
with Black Magic."
In deals directly with the most hated and feared of demons
found within Judeo-Christian traditions, such as Lucifer and
Astaroth. In addition, its reputation was built up by famed
Nineteenth Century French occultist Eliphas Levi, who described
it as horrible, wicked, and profane.
Honorius amalgamates elements from other grimoires, such as
the Key of Solomon and
the Grimorium Verum,
with Catholic priestly ritual. The result is truly bizarre.
I believe its compiler was merely trying to cash in on the notoriety
of the authentic 13th century grimoire,
The Sworn Book of Honorius.
