Marjorie Bowen - Black Magic

Marjorie Bowen’s fascinating tale of the rise and fall of the Anti-Christ is a classic of occult literature. Witches, demons and gallant defenders of the faith cross the panoply of her story in superb array as her heroes face the awful trial of marching on Rome itself to fight the devil-driven Pope.

Black Magic is Volume 13 in the Dennis Wheatley Library of the Occult
