The Origin of the Word "Grimoire" is the Old French "gramaire" or "grammar," which came to English from the Greek letter of the alphabet, "gramma" which came from "of letters" or grammatikos, to the Latin grammatica, which brings us to the Old French... It gets even more complicated but at least we can agree that the consensus of Grimoire's definition is; a manual for invocations, summoning spirit, magick, spells, acquiring occult knowledge, necromancy, or an encyclopedia of spells and incantations. Recorded use of the term dates from 1849.
Dr. Oliver I. Spence, W.D. elaborates on Grimoire as being: a variation of the word "glamour", glamour defined as "A mortal syntheses of "Beauty" -a synthesis because; only The Creator can give birth to Original Beauty. It is in the practice(s) found in the Grimoire that mortals manifest, or practice Magick...
Contemporary facination with the Grimoire is reflected in cinema and art such as Indiana Jones, The Ninth Gate, Frankenstein, the work of Dan Brown, Harry Potter and much of the art of H.R. Giger are all influenced or center on a legend of the Grimoire. The interest in these works is growing in popular culture as well as occult circles.

"Some books cannot be opened and read with impunity. Enlightenment such-as-this is a loss of innocence, for you cannot unlearn Magick nor-then live in a fool's paradise; blind to good & evil or deaf to the herald of truth... this adventure is one-way... crossing the threshold of ignorance and shedding the veil of convention... prepare to see great things... prepare to experience your magnificent self..." -Oliver I. Spence
