“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble!” This week, we’re doing a bit of black magic and calling up demons. Specifically the demons in the Ars Goetia, the 72 kings, dukes, presidents and barons of Hell. We run down the history of this notorious book of demonology, its unlikely origins and its connections to pop culture and roleplaying games.
