‘The Three Purifiers: Asperging Herbs in the Grimorium Verum’ in Jake Stratton-Kent, Dis Albion and Erzebet Carr (eds.), Conjure Codex II (Hadean Press, 2013).
This essay focuses on the three purifying herbs of the Grimorium Verum - marjoram, mint, and rosemary - used in asperging ritual tools, spaces, and the operator themselves. It traces the world history of these three herbs in medicine and magic.
‘Alexander Cummins, writing on the purifying herbs of the latter grimoire, demonstrates further inter-relatedness while his articulate commentary sets a benchmark for other authors.'
