A tireless worker for the Light, Franz Bardon left behind him four legendary books which have become acknowledged classics of occult literature. The Practice of Magical Evocation is the second work in Bardon’s opus, and thoroughly unique. In magical terms, the book is a practical guide to the proper evocation of and communication with spiritual, magical and divine entitles. It is perhaps the only truly significant modern study of direct contact with the universal teachers –– the other major works in the field are products of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation periods.
The Practice of Magical Evocation is also unique in terms of its depth and complexity. Not only does it provide a powerful intellectual rationale for and explanation of the art of evocation itself, it also outlines the actual practice of the art in great detail, including instruction as to the creation of magic wands, circles, garments, and so on. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into a magical universe.
(1909 - 1958)
Born on December 1, 1909, in the Czech Republic, Bardon is considered a leader in Hermetic literature, and destiny proved him to be one of the most remarkable magicians of the 20th century.
Though he maintained a normal life as an industrial mechanic and family man in the Czech town of Opava, his other, occult life was full of attainment and tragedy.
During the last years of WWII, Bardon spent 3-1/2 months in a concentration camp and was subjected to various tortures because he would not aid the powers that be in winning the war with his occult powers. After the war, he dedicated himself to writing of his now famous books on Hermetics.
His work was interrupted forever in 1958 when he was falsely incarcerated for not paying taxes on alcohol used in the preparation of his spagyric remedies.
On July 10, 1958 Bardon died in a prison hospital in Brno, Czechoslovakia.
