The Golden Bough is a collection of essays and exploratory texts concerned with the subject of magic as defined by the Heliotropic Brotherhood of the Golden Dawn, a society of self-proclaimed magicians, mesmerists, and demonologists. The book explores Druidic tradition, the history of magic inside and outside of the traditions of the Catholic Church, and the principles of magic as a pseudoscience. It also explores various speculative methods by which magic may be practiced.
