- Spirits of Solomon
- Seventy-two DEMONs or DJINN captured by the legendary King SOLOMON, who imprisoned them in a brass vessel and cast it into the sea. The vessel was discovered by Babylonians, who believed it contained a great treasure. When they broke open the vessel, the demons and their legions were set free, and they returned to their home. One exception was BELIAL, who entered an image and delivered oracles in exchange for sacrifices and divine honors.The Lemegeton, or Lesser Key of Solomon, is a grimoire that gives instructions for the evocation of the 72 spirits. They are also known as the Spirits of the Brazen Vessel and the False Monarchy of Demons. Combined, the spirits accomplish “all abominations.”The 72 spirits are, in the order they were commanded into the brazen vessel (see individual entries):Bael Glasyalabolas PerocelAgares Bune FureasVassago Ronove BalamGamagin Berith AllocesMarbas Astaroth CaimValefor Forneus MurmurAmon Foras OrobasBarbatos Asmoday GemoryPaimon Gaap OseBuer Furfur AmyGusion Marchosias OriasSitri Stolas VapulaBeleth Phoenix ZaganLerayou Halpas ValacEligor Malpas AndrasZepar Raum FlaurosBotis Focalor AndrealphusBathin Vepar CimeiesSaleos Sabnack AmdusciasPurson Shax BelialMorax Vine DecarabiaIpos Bifrons SeereAim Vual DantalionNaberius Haagenti AndromaliusFURTHER READING:- Waite, Arthur Edward.
