So before we look at what the Necronomicon actually is – let’s look at what it isn’t:
It isn’t a secret spell book book used by modern witches
It isn’t the first grimoire in existence
It isn’t a old esoteric occult text
It isn’t even a real book at all…
The Necronomicon is a fictional book referenced in the writing of H.P.Lovecraft (of Cthullu fame). The book has never existed in real life and has no significance to witches beyond an enjoyment of the author’s writing. You can find all you need to know about the Necronomicon on the Wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necronomicon and I strongly suggest if you hear anybody claiming to own/use this book for real you have a good laugh at them and tell them to do their research before spouting and making themselves look a pillock.
