The Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as Clavicula Salomonis Regis[note 1] or Lemegeton, is an anonymous grimoire on demonology. It was compiled in the mid-17th century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older. It is divided into five books—the Ars Goetia, Ars Theurgia-Goetia, Ars Paulina, Ars Almadel, and Ars Notoria.
The Latin term goetia refers to the evocation of demons or evil spirits. It is derived from the Ancient Greek word γοητεία (goēteía) meaning 'witchcraft' or 'jugglery'.
In medieval and Renaissance Europe, goetia was generally considered evil and heretical, in contrast to theurgia (theurgy) and magia naturalis (natural magic), which were sometimes considered more noble.Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa, in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy, writes 'Now the parts of ceremonial magic are goetia and theurgia. Goetia is unfortunate, by the commerces of unclean spirits made up of the rites of wicked curiosities, unlawful charms, and deprecations, and is abandoned and execrated by all laws.'
The most obvious source for the Ars Goetia is Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum in his De praestigiis daemonum. Weyer does not cite, and is unaware of, any other books in the Lemegeton, suggesting that the Lemegeton was derived from his work, not the other way around. The order of the spirits changed between the two, four additional spirits were added to the later work, and one spirit (Pruflas) was omitted. The omission of Pruflas, a mistake that also occurs in an edition of Pseudomonarchia Daemonum cited in Reginald Scot's The Discoverie of Witchcraft, indicates that the Ars Goetia could not have been compiled before 1570. Indeed, it appears that the Ars Goetia is more dependent upon Scot's translation of Weyer than on Weyer's work in itself. Additionally, some material came from Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, the Heptameron by pseudo-Pietro d'Abano,[note 2] and the Magical Calendar.
Weyer's Officium Spirituum, which is likely related to a 1583 manuscript titled The Office of Spirits, appears to have ultimately been an elaboration on a 15th-century manuscript titled Livre des Esperitz (30 of the 47 spirits are nearly identical to spirits in the Ars Goetia).
In a slightly later copy made by Thomas Rudd (1583?–1656), this portion was labelled 'Liber Malorum Spirituum seu Goetia', and the seals and demons were paired with those of the 72 angels of the Shem HaMephorash which were intended to protect the conjurer and to control the demons he summoned. The angelic names and seals derived from a manuscript by Blaise de Vigenère, whose papers were also used by Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers (1854-1918) in his works for the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (1887–1903). Rudd may have derived his copy of Liber Malorum Spirituum from a now-lost work by Johannes Trithemius, who taught Agrippa, who in turn taught Weyer.
This portion of the work was later translated by Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and published by Aleister Crowley in 1904 under the title The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King. Crowley added some additional invocations previously unrelated to the original work (including some evocations in the Enochian language), as well as essays describing the rituals as psychological exploration instead of demon summoning.
The demons' names (given below) are taken from the Ars Goetia, which differs in terms of number and ranking from the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum of Weyer. As a result of multiple translations, there are multiple spellings for some of the names, which are given in the articles concerning them. The demons Vassago, Seere, Dantalion, and Andromalius are new additions in Ars Goetia that are not present in the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum that it is based upon.
The demons are described as being commanded by four kings of the cardinal directions: Amaymon (east), Corson (west), Ziminiar (north), and Gaap (south). A footnote in one variant edition instead lists them as Oriens or Uriens, Paymon or Paymonia, Ariton or Egyn, and Amaymon or Amaimon, alternatively known as Samael, Azazel, Azael, and Mahazael (purportedly their preferred rabbinic names). Agrippa's Occult Philosophy lists the kings of the cardinal directions as Urieus (east), Amaymon (south), Paymon (west), and Egin (north); again providing the alternate names Samuel (i.e. Samael), Azazel, Azael, and Mahazuel. The Magical Calendar lists them as Bael, Moymon, Poymon, and Egin, though Peterson notes that some variant editions instead list 'Asmodel in the east, Amaymon in the south, Paymon in the west, and Aegym in the north'; 'Oriens, Paymon, Egyn, and Amaymon'; or 'Amodeo [sic] (king of the east), Paymon (king of the west), Egion (king of the north), and Maimon.'
The Ars Theurgia Goetia mostly derives from Trithemius's Steganographia, though the seals and order for the spirits are different due to corrupted transmission via manuscript. Rituals not found in Steganographia were added, in some ways conflicting with similar rituals found in the Ars Goetia and Ars Paulina. Most of the spirits summoned are tied to points on a compass, four emperors are tied to the cardinal points (Carnesiel in the east, Amenadiel in the west, Demoriel in the north and Caspiel in the south), and sixteen dukes are tied to cardinal points, inter-cardinal points, and additional directions between those. There are an additional eleven 'wandering princes', totalling thirty-one spirit leaders who each rule several to a few dozen spirits.
Derived from book three of Trithemius's Steganographia and from portions of the Heptameron, but purportedly delivered by Paul the Apostle instead of (as claimed by Trithemius) Raziel. Elements from The Magical Calendar, astrological seals by Robert Turner's 1656 translation of Paracelsus's Archidoxes of Magic, and repeated mentions of guns and the year 1641 indicate that this portion was written in the later half of the seventeenth century. Traditions of Paul communicating with heavenly powers are almost as old as Christianity itself, as seen in some interpretations of 2 Corinthians 12:2–4 and the apocryphal Apocalypse of Paul. The Ars Paulina is in turn divided into two books, the first detailing twenty-four angels aligned with the twenty-four hours of the day, the second (derived more from the Heptameron) detailing the 360 spirits of the degrees of the zodiac.
Mentioned by Trithemius and Weyer, the latter of whom claimed an Arabic origin for the work. A 15th-century copy is attested to by Robert H.Turner, and Hebrew copies were discovered in the 20th century. The Ars Almadel instructs the magician on how to create a wax tablet with specific designs intended to contact angels via scrying.
The oldest known portion of the Lemegeton, the Ars Notoria (or Notory Art) was first mentioned by Michael Scot in 1236 (and thus was written earlier). The Ars Notoria contains a series of prayers (related to those in The Sworn Book of Honorius) intended to grant eidetic memory and instantaneous learning to the magician. Some copies and editions of the Lemegeton omit this work entirely;A. E. Waite ignores it completely when describing the Lemegeton. It is also known as the Ars Nova.

This catalog of 72 demons is based on a variant of the Offices of Spirits, via Abraham Fleming's (somewhat problematic) English translation which appeared in Reginald Scot's Discouerie of Witchcraft (1584).Compare with Johann Weyer Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, which listed only 69 spirits.The list was expanded to 72 apparently because of the numerological significance of that number, which has resulted in a sort of a negative version of the well-known list of 72 angels associated with the Schemhamphorash.
The spirit sigils do not appear in any of the earlier manuscripts of the Offices of Spirits that I am aware of, although they are reminiscent of those found in some other catalogs of spirits, such as that inMs Plut 89 Sup 38(fol. 95v ff), which contains sigils for 100 demons, or the Secrets of Solomon.

Compare Douce ms. 116 pp. 171-172 (2nd half 17th ce), which has an experiment for transporting anything, which employs spirits named 'Aldiator, Belleracke, Bellonay, Halluhullynza, Saluzem.'The accompanying conjuration starts: 'Conjuro vos spiritis, Aldiator, Ballaroch, Bellonay, Hally-hullinza, Cooluzem, per patrem, + et ff, + et Ss,...'Accompanying 'pentacle of Solomon' (which is a double circle with hexagram inside) has the names of the same spirits inside, againwith slight differences: 'Hally / Hullinza / Aldiator / Ballaroche / Bellony / Hally-Hullinza / (in center): Cooluzem'.

[The Ring of Salomon]
This Ring is to be held before the face of the Exorcist topreserve him from The stinking fumes of spirits &c.
|Around the ring is written the sacred name ANEPHENETON. Above the first N is written 'x', indicating the scribe was not certain if the name was spelled with an N or an X. The name is spelled Anephenethon in the Sworn Book of Honorius, and Anepheneton in Bodleian MS Rawl. D252 (12v). Coxe 25: Athenethon vel Anepheneton; BnF ital. 1524 195v: Anafeneton; SSM fol. 55: Anecphenneton; CLM 849: Anathematon; CLM 10085 4v: Anathemathon. LIH also reads Anephenethon. In the printed Heptameron and in the Folger manuscript it is spelled Anephexeton, but earlier manuscript VSG has Anepheneton. I believe this to be the same as (Greek) Anekphoniton ('Unpronounceable'), sometimes used to refer to the Tetragrammaton (יהוה i.e. YHVH).|

|if [somehow] they do not come at the rehearsing of these 2 fforegoeingConjurations (but without doubt they [normally] will) say one [on] asffolloweth, it being a constraint.|
I conjure the [thee] spirit N. by all the mostglorious and Effacius [efficacious] names of the most great andIncomprehensible Lord god of Host [Hosts], that you comest quicklywithout delay ffrom all parts and places of the world:[wherever thou mayest be,] to make rationell answers to my demandsand that visible and affably speakeing with a voiceIntellegible to my understanding as aforesaid, I conjure andconstrain you spirit N., by all aforesaid and by these sevennames by wch wise Salomon bound thee and thy fellowsin a vessel of Brass. Adonay, Prerai Tetragrammaton;Anephexeton [Anaphexeton], Inessenfatall,Pathatumon, & Itemon. That you appeare hear beforethis Circle, to fullfill my will in all things, that shall seemegood unto me and if you be disobedient and refuse to come I willin the power and by the power of the name of yesupream and Everliving god, Who created both you and me andall the whole world in six days and what is contained in itEye-Saray, and by the power[115r]of his name Primeumaton; which commandeth thewhole hoste of heaven, curse you and deprive you, from all youroffice, Joy & place, and binde you in the debth [depth]of ye Bottomless pit There to remaine unto the day ofthe last Judgement, and I will bind you into Eternall fire &into the lake of fire and Brimstone, unless you come forthwith andappeare heere before this Circle to doe my will in all things.Therefore com [thou!] in and by these holly names Adonay,Zebeoth [Zebaoth], Adonay, Amiorem;come yee, Adonay commandeth you.
If you come so farr, and he yet doth not appeare you may be sure heis sent to some other place by his king, and cannot come and if it beso Invocate the king as followeth to send him, But if he doth not comestill, Then you may be sure he is bound in chains in hell: and he isnot in the Custody of his king: So if you have a desier to call himffrom thence, you must rehearse the spirits Chaine &c.
For to Invocate the Kinge say as ffolloweth -
O you great mighty and Powerfull kinge Amaymon, who bearethrule by the power of thy supreame god El over all spirits bothsuperior and Inferiour of the Infernal order in the Dominion ofthe Earth [East], I invocate and command you by the especial and truestname of your god and by god that you worship and obey, and bythe seal of ye Creation, & by the most mighty & powerfullname of god Jehovah Tetragrammaton, who cast you ought [out] of heavenwith all other of the Infernall spirits and by all ye most powerfulland great names of god who created heaven, Earth & hell, and all thingscontained in them, and by their power and vertue, & by ye namePrimeumaton who commandeth the whole host of heaven, that youcause, enforce & compell N. to come unto me hear before thisCircle in a fair & comely forme, without doeing any harme tome or any other Creature, and to answere truely & faithfullto all my Requests, That I may accomplish my will and desiers,in knowing or obtaining any matter or thing wch by office youknow is proper for him to performe or to accomplish, threw [through] thepower of god El who createth and disposeth of all thingsboth celestiall, ayerall [aerial], Terrestiall [terrestrial] and Infernall.
After you have Invocated the king in this manner twise or thriceover, then conjure ye spirit you would have calld forth bythe aforsaid conjurations rehearsing them severall times together,and he will come without doubt if not at ye first or secondtime rehearsing. But if he doth not come, add the spirits Chaine tothe end of ye afforsaid Conjuration and he will be forced tocome even if he be Bound in chains: for the chaines will break of [off]from him and he will be at liberty &c.[115v]
The generall Curse, called the spirits Chaine against all spiritsthat Rebell.
O thou wicked and disobedient spirit, because thou hast rebelledand not obeyed nor regarded my words which I have rehearsed Theybeing all most glorious and Incomprehensible names of ye truegod Maker and creator of you and me and all the world, I bythe power of those names wch no creature is able to resistdoe curse you into the debts [! depths] of ye Bottomless Pitt,There to remaine untill ye day of doom in chaines of fireand Brimstone unquenchable, unless you dost forthwith appear beforethis circle in This Triangle To doe my will;Therefore come paceably [peaceably] and quietly [quickly] in & bythese names -- Adonai [Adonay], Zebaoth,Adonay, Amioram; come come why stay you, Adonaycomandeth you.
When you have read so farr and he doth not come, Then write his nameand seal in [on] virgins parch [parchment] and put it into a blackBox with Brimstone aquafateda [assafoetida] and such things that havea stincking strong smell and bind the Box round with a wire and hangit on ye swords point and hold it over the fire of Charcoles,and say to the fire first [as followeth] (it being placed towardthat quarter the spirit is to come)
[The Conjuration of the fire]
If he cometh not yet, say as followeth:
