Helyes’ Book


This little book could have enabled Helyes of Thoulouse to perform miracles, had he cared to study it. On at least one occasion, he used it to conjure up an apparently demonic apparition to help elucidate a prophecy concerning Duke Galeholt’s term of life.

None of Galeholt’s other clerks had success when they tried to consult this book; perhaps they were not learned enough.
