Liber Juratus is one of the oldest and most influential texts of Medieval magic. The almost legendary reputation of this work led to the forgery of the so-called Grimoire of Pope Honorius, a ridiculous work so despised by Eliphas Levi and A. E. Waite.
According to Lynn Thorndike, Magic and Experimental Science II, 281 ff, it is also known as Liber Sacer or Liber Sacratus by which name it is
mentioned at least twice in the thirteenth century.
The only attempt at publishing any significant portion of this text was Daniel Driscoll's The Sworn Book of Honorius (sic) the Magician, Heptangle
Books, 1977. Unfortunately, Driscoll did not make use of the best manuscripts, omitted large portions, misread and misplaced angelic names and words
from the prayers, and otherwise took serious liberties with the text. It is, however, a fine example of the book publisher's craft, and has become a valuable
collectible.
