Publisher’s Description: 

The history of sorcery comes alive with these unique portraits of some of the most remarkable, infamous, and colorful practitioners of magic and alchemy. Join author Guy Ogilvy as he reveals the fascinating beliefs, techniques, and powers mastered by these influential figures. Beginning with the prehistoric culture of the Lion Man, continuing through the great mythical figures such as Orpheus, the pre-Socratic Greeks such as Pythagoras and Aristeas of Proconnesus, and following the trail up to the great alchemists of the Middle Ages and beyond, this book is a treasure trove of information. From antiquity to the Renaissance, The Great Wizards of History is a profound exploration of ideas and practices that were often contested or condemned even as they demonstrated the brilliant results of magical practice.
