This method of Abramelin the Mage is understood from a different 15th century manuscript preserved within the Bibliothèque de L'Arsenal in Paris. In it, Abraham of Würzburg, a cabalist and gourmand of magics, describes a travel that he made from the then civilized international, traveling sorcerers, magicians, and cabalists, estimating their powers and virtues.

This quantities to an entire path in ceremonial magic (both white and black), which the scholar can pursue by means of himself.
Abramelin, whose process is primarily based on Hellenistic theurgy of the Iamblichan style, yet with Jewish increments from the Cabala, explains the skills had to develop into a magician, purifications, and asceticisms to be practiced month via month, reports and actions accepted in this interval, choice of position and time for operating magic, apparatus wanted, prayers and formulation, evocation of excellent and evil spirits, commanding spirits to do one's will, overcoming rebellious spirits, and comparable fabric. particular directions are provided to strengthen such powers as clairvoyance, divining metals and treasures, heading off evil magic, therapeutic ailment, levitation, transportation, rendering oneself invisible, developing illusions and glamour, interpreting minds, putting compulsions, operating black magic, and a bunch of alternative abilities.
