Archangel Metatron from Key to Hell

Archangel Metatron from Key to Hell

Via the superb Public Domain Review. I love this image of the archangel Metatron, taken from the Claris Inferni, or Key to Hell, an 18th Century grimoire. You can see the other beautiful and compelling images from this manuscript at the link above.

From Cyprianus, 18th century. Cyprianus is also known as the Black Book, and is the textbook of the Black School at Wittenburg, the book from which a witch or sorceror gets his spells.
