The Gospel of Satan: Grand Grimoire is One of the Creepiest Medieval Manuscripts Out There!

The Grand Grimoire, sometimes referred to as the ‘Red Dragon’ or the ‘Gospel of Satan’, is a medieval grimoire believed to possess immense powers. According to legend, it was written by an apocryphal figure by the name of Honorius of Thebes, who is claimed to have been possessed by Satan himself. The Grand Grimoire is said to be one of the most potent occult books in existence, and contains instructions for the summoning of demons.

This grimoire is often said to have been written during the 16th century. During the 18th century, when there was a ‘cheap grimoire boom’ in France, a version of the Grand Grimoire was produced, and then published in the following century. The original Grand Grimoire (or a copy of the original), however, is said to be kept today in the Vatican Secret Archives, and is not currently available to the public.

Whilst the exact origin of the word ‘grimoire’ is still being debated, it is generally accepted today that it is derived from the Old French word ‘grammaire’. This word, which means ‘grammar’, was used as a reference to books in general, especially those that were written in Latin. Over time, however, the meaning of this term evolved, and eventually became associated with the occult. Therefore, the word grimoire is today the name given to the textbooks used in the occult. The contents of such grimoires normally provide its user with instructions for the creation of magical amulets and talismans, instructions for the casting of magic spells, and even rituals for the summoning of supernatural beings, such as angels and demons.
