    An excellent historical guide for students of History or Religion. The Myth of the Magus is a very good and readable introduction to the history of magic in the West from the Magi refered to in the New Testament to Madame Blavatsky. Gives some insight into the historical survival of magical ideas and beliefs to the present, but the treatment ends in the early 20th century. Belongs with books by Norman Cohn, Frances Yates, Carlo Ginzburg, and Peter Levenda. One final note: The book does not ignore alchemical ideas but does not go into detail on them either.
