Arbatel of Magic (Grimoire)

Arbatel consists primarily of a set of pious aphorisms, and the description of seven Olympian (or Olympick) spirits.

From the Robert Turner translation:

They are called Olympick spirits, which do inhabit in the firmament, and in the stars of the firmament: and the office of these spirits is to declare Destinies, and to administer fatal Charms, so far forth as God pleaseth to permit them: for nothing, neither evil spirit nor evil Destiny, shall be able to hurt him who hath the most High for his refuge.

Arbatel was transcribed in its entirety into the Grimoire of Arthur Gauntlet, and influenced a number of later texts.
