• The Testament of Solomon

Pseudepigraphic treatise on the forms and activities of demons and the charms effective against them. The Testament professes to be Solomon's own account of certain experiences of his during the building of the Temple. Learning that his chief overseer was plagued by a demon who every evening took the half of his wages and his food, and drew the life out of him by sucking the thumb of his right hand, he appealed for help to God, and received through the angel Michael a seal-ring of magic power. With this he controlled the offending demon, and forced him to bring the chief of the demons, Beelzebub. This valuable book is a crude formulation of conceptions regarding demonic power that were almost universal in the Jewish and the Christian world for many centuries.
