On Thursday October 25th, 2018 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon

will present a discussion on the late Medieval astrologer magician Cecco

d' Ascoli who was burned at the stake by the Inquisition in 1327 a.d.

for publishing books connecting astrology with magick, necromancy and

demonology. In several ways he presaged the sad career of Giordano Bruno

who went to the stake 273 years later in 1600 for a similar offense.

Cecco expounded his magick on a geocentric universe model, whereas Bruno

paganized (or demonized) a later Coperican universe. Cecco d' Ascoli may

be considered the father of Solomonic ceremonial mirror magick. One of

his most heretical revelations was a description of summoning (evoking)

the demon "Floron", in a mirror of polished steel. Floron had fallen

from the Order of Cherebum and served under the Goetic king Amaymon.

Such a mirror was described in Picatrix and later depictions of it

reveal that it was in fact a hand mirror. After Cecco's execution

magicians no longer wrote of magick mirrors but their use continued

until the present day. We will draw primarily from Lynn Thorndike's

"History of Magic and Experimental Science", Volume 2 (1923) with

current material from Christopher Warnock. So if you want to find out

where this dark mirror magick got started, tune in and we'll pull

another Italian magus out of the fire.
