Necromancy is the art of using the dead to do magickal workings. So i would imagine that blood magick, and many rituals involving the death of things, or dead things are involved. Are you sure you want to study this?

Sincerely,
Scrupulous

Blood magic has been used for a great many practices. You see stories of sacrifice in both the old and new testaments. You see stories of human sacrifice within Celtic and Norse traditions. You see modern day muslims letting blood in self flagellation. Beyond this, blood magic may require but a drop of blood. It is somewhat more unusual for it to ever involve death.


Necromancy, while generally involving the dead, does not require the death of something to practice. It may involve communication with the spirits of the departed. Otherwise, in modern practice, it utilizes "death energy," or the energy of all things that end. Every ending results in something new beginning. It is the energy of change. And it can be a very positive force.

Also, the Necronomicon is not necromancy. Is is supposed Sumerian practice, most frequently exploring the opening of several gateways to otherworldly entities. This, again, is not Necromancy but invocation or evocation.

I would elaborate on this point and express that the Necronomicon origins are entirely rooted within a work of fiction. There is no historical basis to the book beyond clever inclusion of vague historical facts included by the science fiction horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. This is part of what made his stories so brilliant - they involved figments of occult practice that was popular at the time so as to make the stories more believable.

The most popular version of the Necronomicon is written by a man who goes only by Simon and appeared first in the 70s. It claims to be full of ancient Sumerian lore but in truth its methods and practice have more in common with practices explored in the Golden Dawn, such as the Abramelin Operation, than much of anything that was actually born of the ancient Sumerians. Indeed, the entire introduction tries to draw connections between Aleister Crowley, H.P. Lovecraft, Babylonian Mythology, and various other faiths. It's like if people took the DaVinci Code, another work of fiction, and decided it was real.

Oh wait, people did that too.

As above said, the necronomicon is a fake, however the entities in there will come if called and are dangerous...

Thanks for the lolz XD

Awake is right and sadly enough people mix a little bit of truth with a bunch of fiction all the time nowdays. Anyone that works communing with spirits is technically doing necromancy.

The basic thing a Necromancer strives to do is to blur the line between life and death. We do more then just talk to the dead. There are multiple subsets of Necromancy. We also use Death Essence because energy can't be created or destroyed. Lots of people like to use energy but death and energy don't go together.

http://www23.brinkster.com/falcis/ this is a good site on Necromancy. I still wish we could raise the dead that would be hilarious at funerals but eh we can't.
