Hexing can come with hefty consequences as we are taught that all of our actions, good or bad, come back to us in one form or another times three. Since a hex interferes with…

    the ones most likely to take part in ritual magic, even though it appears to go against all that is sacred. But the accounts of clergy men being involved are incredibly numerous. Denis Zacaire, in his “Experiences as an Alchemist,” recalls both an abbot and an old monk who had helped him in his endeavors and had advised him on how to become a greater alchemist. George Phaedro Rodocherus, in his discussion of the Philosopher’s Stone, believes that in order to be a successful alchemist, one must…
