The Eight Most Holy Tables Of The Fathers.

This post is a compilation of comments from various contributors from FB group: Solomonic Secrets of the Magickal Grimoires , a group managed by Aaron Leitch.All the Contributors names (to whom I am very grateful) are written at the end of the post. The Table of Practice from the  Teurgia Goetia contains the famous Table of Solomon , which is also represented in the Magickal Calendar . We can see that Wisdom virtue is represented by the Table of Solomon, and we can also note that it is the model of the figure that is used on the Great Pentacle of Solomon, according to the Greater Key of Solomon . Finally, we can see that seven other Tables also exist, which may be used for various magical purposes. This first peculiar figure below is one of eight wax seals, and whoever wishes to use them will have to pour soft wax on them, and then affix these famous magic Seals, to imprint them. The Teurgia Goetia  clearly indicates to place the crystal on the table of practice: " You may call

De Candariis Salomonis - De Quatuor Annulis & Duodecim Candariarum (De Novem Candarii) [En]

Ms W4664 which is written in 'François', gives important informations about the Candarii. In the text, another passage describes the famous Annuli Quartet or The Four Rings. In the same way, the reader will realize that the ritual of the 'Quatuor Annuli' in question here refers to the amking of 4 magical rings. So (unless I'm mistaken), there is no mention here of the Annuli Salomonis Quartet attributed to Peter of Abano (Petri de Abano - Cod.Mag 34). Moreover, the reader will also realize that the 4 rings must be arranged in a rather particular way and that the ritual of the 4 rings is connected to the ritual of the 12 Candaries to the extent that they are all integral parts of the same ritual (or Conjuration). Let's now compare the contents from W4664 with the content from Ms Bnf 14787, which also describes the Candaries and the 4 Rings.  Let's start with the 4 figures of the 4 rings according to Ms W4664 and according to Ms 14784.
