Necronomicon: The Ancient Book Of Magic That Allegedly Drove Readers Insane!


"The book that drives readers insane" sounds like we're trying to sell a modern fiction of a popular author, don't we? It's catchy, isn't it? But this is an ancient book we're talking about here, and we're definitely not interested in selling it! What if this book is really magic and actually does what it claims to do? Here's what Necronomicon is all about...

Necronomicon was supposedly written by the Mad Arab Alhazred in Damascus around 70 c.e.

The original copy was never discovered, but excerpts are being collected and read by many people. The book is famous for its creepy details.

This book is classified as a grimoire, meaning it is a textbook of magic.

Being full of creepy details, this book allegedly brings readers madness and death. It tells about how Alhazred wandered around in the desert and got hold of ancient chronicles.

The book speaks of Azothoth, the time when there were no humans, how to communicate with the spirits and how the dead can be evoked.

It mentions incredible details about The Flood which are similar to long-argued Jewish myths but Orthodox Judaism do not accept these allegations. The book claims to give insight to where the religions got their roots from.

Humans existed somewhere else before arriving on Earth, Necronomicon claims.

They came from other planets, and according Neo-Platonism there is life on other stars. These living things have an evolutionary hierarchy.

Here are other details from the book:

Using special symbols and determining special times, humans can communicate with Elders and gain necessary information to control the past and the future.

On the other hand, this is a dangerous path, because a human being should only bear the burden they can tolerate.

Additionally, Nostradamus talks about a method that originated in Necronomicon that makes people believe that he could see the future because he learned from the book.

And the claims that Necronomicon brings people into the depths of madness...

Because the book challenges everything normal, it brings the reader to madness by disclosing unbearable truths.

People cannot stand horrible realities and get trapped inside their minds after learning about the truth.

There are different versions of the book circulating around.

Some people claim that the original book is in the Vatican and it is banned by the Papacy.

Other people say that, due to his strong interest in magic, Adolf Hitler seized a copy of Necronomicon.

Capitalizing on the notoriety of the fictional volume, real-life publishers have printed many books entitled Necronomicon.

According to H. P. Lovecraft's "History of the Necronomicon", copies of the original Necronomicon were held by only five institutions worldwide:

  • The British Museum

  • The Bibliothèque nationale de France

  • Widener Library of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts

  • The University of Buenos Aires

  • The library of the fictional Miskatonic University in the also fictitious Arkham, Massachusetts
