What is a Grimoire?

Also called the book of shadows, it is a book filled with magic formulas, which also serves as the magic practitioner’s journal of experimentation with magic. In ancient times, grimoires contained demonic lore and crude images of demons, while medieval grimoires provided descriptions of demons along with demonic seals (1).
