Conjuration of the Sword analysis.(II)





4. Conjuring the Sword by 45 divine names and titles of Christ.












Although, in all honestly, our text does not say they are the names of Christ, there are a number of conjurations out there that contain much the same enumeration of epithets, that are just that. There are quite a few traditions that mention the 72 names of Christ, but fail to mention them. Some of them seem to be Greek or Cophtic, some Aramaic, bot most are Latin.


Some of the editions of the Key of Soomon do keep in one or more conjuration these names, but we only analyzed the ones reffering to the sword.

The only complete list by far is contained in the Munich Manual  (Kieckhefer, p.330), and i shall put that at the head of the list.

Liber Juratus also has similar formulas:

O my God, father almighty, of everlasting power who art able to make him clean that is conceived of an unclean seed. Primogenitus + Primellus + Principium + Sapientia + vertus + Sol + Splendor + Gloria + Pax + Lux + Panis + Os + Verbum + Salus + Angelus + Sponsus + Perpheta + Agnus + Ovis + Vitulus + Serpens + Aries + Leo + Vermis. Hear mercifully the prayers and invocations of thy servant, that through the virtue of thy holy names, my body being washed, I may see thee visibly
whilst I live, with thy nine orders of angels, that my soul may worship and praise thee. Amen.

The Burnett Psalter has similar prayers, attributed to “St. Leo, the pope”:
An invocation of the names of God.
Messyas + Sother + Emanuel,\ + Sabaoth + Adonay, + Pan\ton, + Craton, + Ysus, + Pri\mogenitus + Mediator, + Rex, + Alpha\ Et Omega, + Omousyon, + Salvator +\ Vita + Via + Sapiencia,\ + Virtus +\ Ego sum, + Qui sum, + Agnus, + Ovis +\ Vitulus, + Aries, + Serpens, + Leo,\ + Vermis, + Rex, + Christus + Pater +\ Filius, + Et spiritus sanctus. Amen.
Introduction to the invocation, Adonay, Flos, Sabaoth.
These are the names of our Lord to guard against plague, for women in labour or whoever are afflicted by fire or water.
Invocation, Adonay, Flos, Sabaoth.
An invocation of the names of God.

Amen.

A very complete list of names of Christ, together with other divine names, epithets, and magical names, appears also in our text:

Any attempt to systemize these lists will prove too troublesome at this time, so the seeker that wants a finale for the Conjuration of the Sword has 3 options:
1. Keep to the text in the Keys of Solomon, for tradition’s sake.
2. Re-formulate the conjuration using the 72 names listed by Kieckhefer.
3. Make a list of as many names as possible, mentioned in these various texts, without repetition.

1st name: Abraham. The name of the patriarch is celebrated by all of the three monotheistic traditions, but never as a name of God. Rather, the formula God of Abraham, or the longer  God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob.
2nd name: Liber Juratus often cites Abrac as a divine name, and Abracio is the 63rd divine name of the 100. It adds, in one of the conjurations, Abracio + who didst speak to thy servant Moses in the midst of a bush in a flame of fire.”
We also have similar examples, such as
“coniuro per ab, per gap, per abx, per abra, per abraca, per gebra, per abracala, per abracasap, per abracaleus, per zargon, per abrion, per eleyon, per sargionand of course, the famous line from the Lemegeton and Heptameron:
“Bathac super Abrac ruens, Abeor super Aberor.”
We shall not count Abracadabra, since I believe it is a later extrapolation. It is not contained in any of the earlier works, and Liber Juratus does not mention anything of the sort. Abraxio occurs in the text later on. Possible connection with gnostic Abraxas.

3rd name: Tetragrammaton. Quite a well-known epithet for the holy name YHVH, which was not meant to be uttered. The Aubrey manuscript replaces it with Jehova, and Mathers goes further, simply spelling the name in Hebrew.

4th name: Agla. Again, a well;known and attested name of God. It’s actually the first name of God from the Liber Juratus list. It’s a commonly known fact that this word is the acronym of the second blessiong of Shemoneh 'Esreh, A(tah) G(ibor) L(e-olam) A(donay), Thou arth strong forever, o Lord.

Synthetic conjuration, part 1:

I conjure you, o sword, by these most holy names, that are of the God ABRAHAM : ABRACH, TETRAGRAMMATON,  AGLA, that in my works you shall not be able to hurt me.

Coniuro te per nomen sanctum quod est onoyteon et purum stimulaton et per festinâtem Elsefarêa, et per iustum emsyotam,
A striking similarity with one adjuration in Liber Juratus:
“per sanctum nomen 21,[Rasamarathon],  per sanctissimum 22 [Anethi],  per purum 23 [Erihona], et per iustum 24 [Iuestre], et per festinantem 25[Saday], et per alia dei nomina pura que sunt[...].

 Again, we have:
[...]iustum Ombonar, per verum Stimulamathon, per sanctum Orion, per sanctissimum Eryon, per magnum Noyygl, per festinantem Pep[...]

There is a pattern here, in which four names are given atributes like  Holy, Most-holy, Pure, Just,  True, Great and Hasting (Hasteful? Haste-worthy? Festinantem proves quite problematic).
1st  name: Onoyteon. In the Liber juratus, we find the exact same name, number 54 in the list of 100 names. We also have the description:
 Onoitheon + who hast done all things through wisdom”.
2nd  name: Stimulaton. In all works consulted, like the Lemegeton, Heptameron and Liber Juratus, this name is spelled Stimulamaton. Liber Juratus describes it as : „Stimulamathon + Insubstantia + Invisibilis”(Insubstantial, invizible).

3rd  name: Elsefarêa. In Liber Juratus we find a close match, Elzephares, the 36th name of God, mentioned quite a few times. It’s called in one oration:
Elzephares + Defensor “(The Defender).
4th  name: Emsyotam. No exact matches in the Liber Juratus, we have only Elyorem(97) and Erihona (23), but we are inclined to believe it is Elyorem, due to the cited adjuration similar in wording. Liber Juratus has the conjuration:

Elyorem, which being presented unto God in the temple of Jerusalem by the hands of  Simeon, gavest unto the same Simeon the effect of knowledge as he doth witness himself, saying, "now Lord lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people alight to lighten the Gentile's and the glory of the people of Israel."


Synthetic conjuration, part 2:

I conjure you by the sacred name that is Onoytheon, and the pure Stimula(ma)ton,   and the hasting Elzephares, and the just Emsyotam (Elyorem?),

et per hec nomina dei ineffabilia Egyrion, Usirion, Osistion, Etionam, Usiromis, Brasni, Onela, Perasni, Rohim, Zocoph,

Juratus has a similar formula:
“et per ista decem dei nomina ineffabilia que sunt Egirion 38 [*37], Betha 38, hombonar 39, Stimulamathon 40, Oryon 41, Eryon 42, Noymos 43, Peb 44, Nathanothay 45, Theon 46."( and by these ten ineffable names that are ...)
Liber Juratus provides, here and there, traditions related to the names, and attributes:
Egyrion + protector
Usyryon + who gavest to thy thirsty people out of the hard rock innumerable waters to drink,
Oristion + Potentissime (Most powerfull)
Heriona, almighty, incomprehensible, invisible, and indivisible God,
Usiston+ Gloriose (Glorious)

The Munich Manual also has a few atributes of these names mentioned in the conjurations:
Et per nomine  Oristion,  in nomine oristion, quod Moyses nominauit, et fluuij omnes ebulierunt ranas, et absconderunt in domibus Egyptiorum, (and by the name Oristion, in the name of Oristion, that Moses spoke and fled there toads, and the Egyptians hid in their houses, )
Et per nomine Ysistion,  in nomine Ysistion, quod mare audiuit et submersit omnes currus pharaonis, (and by the name Ysistion, in the name Ysistion, that the sea heard and submerged all of Pharaoh’s  chariots,)
Et per nomine Egyryon,  in nomine Egyryon, cum quo Yosue pugnauit et inimicos destruxit suo et victoriam obtenuit,(and by the name Egyryon, in the name of Egyryion, with which Joshua stroke and destroyed his enemies and obtained victory,)
Synthetic conjuration, part 3:

And by these  ineffable names of God: Egirion, Usirion, Oristion, Erihona, Usiromis (Usiormis?), Brasin, Onela, Perasin, Mayim, Joseph.

Next article will be upon the 72 names of Christ used in this conjuration.
