Goetic Magic and Evocation

The grimoire called Goetia and its 72 demons do have some sort of a “cult status” within communities of Pagans, Witches, Satanists, and Occultists in general. However, there are a lot of misconceptions about the Lemegeton and its Goetia regarding its origins, its magical operations, and the nature of the spirits listed in the grimoire.
