Modern Magick: List of Demons of the Goetia

The demons of modern magick began with demonology classifications by Johann Wier in the mid-1500s, with Collin de Plancy’s illustrated Dictionnaire Infernal in 1863, and with a 17th century grimoire called the Goetia. Golden Dawn member, SL MacGregor Mathers, translated and compiled the list of Goetic demons in 1904. Below are four key books on demons and demonology from the late 16th century to 20th century.

Pseudomonarchia daemonum (1583) -Reginald Scot's translation of Johann Wier's text
Dictionnaire Infernal (1863) - Collin de Plancy's book of demons & illustrations
Abramelin The Mage (1898) - 15th century Hebrew work offering a hierarchy of demons
Goetic Demons (1904) - Mather's translation of the Lesser Key of Solomon the King
