     or The Sorcerer's Thesaurus 


    This is a book mentioned by M João Grande.:

    «Supriano [Cypriano] has a book about this... saying that it comes from the Africans, ... the charms that you put in your body. There's a fava bean that you put in your body... it's not practiced anymore... you put the bean here [in your arm] and close it, iron can't penetrate you. Besouro had done that. Fava bean in the body. A bullet would hit him... and fall on the ground. Cobrinha Verde had it also. A knife couldn't cut him, nothing could cut him. After Besouro lost his power, it didn't work anymore.»

      After cutting take the beans back home and put them one by one in your mouth. When, however, it appears to you that you are invisible, it is because the fava that you have in your mouth has the presice magic power, and so when you fancy to go to a place where nobody should see you, you put the fava in question to your mouth.

      This serves for an occult virtue without the need to make a pact with devil, as do the witches...


      When you are watering the favas many fanthoms will appear to you with an end to scare you so that you wouldn't follow your intent. The reason for this is very simple. This is because the devil is very envious of whom uses this magic, without
