The Testament of Solomon comprises a family of texts, some dating to the fourth century CE or earlier, relating an extra-Biblical account of King Solomon's divinely-conferred power to constrain the demons who plague the human race. It is also, implicitly, a handbook for those bold or foolhardy enough to follow his example in the demonological sciences. Translated here for the first time from fifteenth-century Byzantine Greek manuscripts, one such text of this secret Solomonic history has finally been made available in English. Along with the unique catalogue of spirit names, sigils, dominions, and offices found in this text - among which readers will discover some genuinely surprising characters - this edition also includes an expository introduction and annotations by the translator which situate the text within its historical milieu, manuscript tradition, and a lineage of magical and demonological theory reaching back to the Greek Magical Papyri. This scholarly analysis, no less than the evidence of the manuscripts themselves, emphasizes that the Testament in all of its forms was first and foremost a work of practical magic.

Todd Klutz examines the main issues in scholarship on the Testament of Solomon, for instance, the Testament's textual identity and its tradition history. By approaching the issues in the light of new thinking about 'magic' and the structure of texts, he also sheds light on the motivations behind its final redaction and the sorts of discourses to which its composition may have been a response. Klutz argues that the Colbert manuscript ('P') is unparalleled in value as a repository of clues to the Testament's literary sources and tradition history. Focusing special attention on the structure and dominant motifs of P, he identifies a previously unnoticed scheme of astrological motifs that indicates chapters 1-15 once circulated independently. As both this section and the material in chapter 18 (i.e., Solomon's interviews with the thirty-six decans, or the 'world-rulers of darkness'), are found to differ starkly in genre and point of view from the final eight chapters, an unprecedentedly clear history of the Testament's development is postulated. Most notably, Klutz argues that the final stage of the text's editing included the composition of chapters 19-26; the primary aim of which is to undermine the reputation of Solomon as the origin of a powerful tradition of magico-religious healthcare. This is volume 53 in the Library of Second Temple Studies series (formerly the Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha Supplement series).

In the early Christian era, many Testaments of the Patriarchs circulated in Jewish and Christian communities. The Testaments of Job and Solomon was used by the Christian Montanist sect, and the Gnostic Valentinian sect in the 2nd century. The Testament of Solomon was widely used by Christian and Gnostic astrologers in the first few centuries of the Christian era, however, clearly began as a pre-Christian prophetic text, predicting the coming of Emmanuel, the Israelite Messiah whose Gematria value would be 644, which is not the Gematria value of Jesus. While references to Jesus' life and crucifixion are present in this testament, the predictions are believed to have been added later, likely before the year 200 AD. The second half of the Testament of Solomon is largely drawn from ancient Egyptian astrology, which divided the circle of the Zodiac into 36 decans, or small-constellations. These later decans formed the basis of Indian astrology, who called it 'Greek' astrology, beginning with Sphujidhvaja's Yavanajātaka, published around 150 AD. The content of the testament places its origin sometime before the time of Jesus, however, unlike most Jewish texts from the time, it treats the Jewish priesthood in the Second Temple with disdain, and refer to the priesthoods established by Ezra and Nehemiah under Persian authority as a corruption. This means it could not have been a Pharisee or Sadducee work, however, does not clarify if it was a Samaritan work, or the work of another Jewish sect, such as the Tobian Jews (Τουβιανοὺς Ιουδαίους) mentioned in 2nd Maccabees, who lived in Seleucid controlled regions. The attack on Ezra would be equally valid for Samaritans or the followers of the High Priest Tobiah, who Ezra kicked out of the Temple in Jerusalem in the Septuagint's 1st Ezra. The apocalyptic message seems to point to it originating in the same sect as the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, Testament of Job, and Testament of Moses, as well as the books of Enoch, Tobit, Jubilees, and Job, which were likely the work of the Tobian Jews. However, as the Tobian Jews were described as living in Bashan (southern modern Syria), and this was not part of Judah, but rather part of the Tribe of Manasseh's territory, therefore this testament strongly implies that the Tobian Jews were Samaritans, which would explain why most of their texts were never accepted by Rabbinical Jews.

King Solomon is arguably the most famous of all ancient Israelite kings, with several books in the Septuagint dedicated to him, or about him, or even by him, yet, to date, no archeological evidence for his life has been found. Additionally, the Testament of Solomon has survived from the Second Temple era which displays another side of King Solomon. The lifetime of King Solomon falls during the Third Intermediate Period (dark age) in Egyptian history, and therefore are no records of Solomon within the very limited Egyptian records from the time. Egyptologists believe the Kingdom of Egypt collapsed at the beginning of the time period, and by the time that Solomon would have lived, in the early-9th century BC, the king of Egypt only controlled the northern region, while the rest of Egypt was under the rule of the High Priest of Amen (Amun). The various books associated with Solomon that made it into the Septuagint, include 3rd Kingdoms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Wisdom of Solomon, and Psalms of Solomon, als of which have been retranslated into modern English. The first book in this collection is 3rd Kingdoms, which tells the life of Solomon, likely from Ezra the Scribe's perspective, 500 years later. The book likely dates to before the reign of King Josiah, circa 700 BC, but is believed to have been redacted by Ezra the Scribe, or someone else in his era. The second book, Proverbs, also called Proverbs of Solomon, is generally attributed to King Solomon, who is explicitly referred to as the author of some of the proverbs. A number proverbs are known to have been copied from older collections of proverbs, most notably the Wisdom of Amenemope, which was apparently written by Amenemope son of Kanakht sometime before Pharaoh Akhenaten, circa 1350 BC. The third book, Ecclesiastes is generally also attributed to King Solomon, however, he is not mentioned anywhere by name. The idea that King Solomon was the author, is found in the introduction to the text. At some point before the Greek translation was made, someone added an introduction and conclusion to the text, in which the author is described as being the 'son of David,' and a 'King in Jerusalem.' The fourth book, Song of Songs, also called the Song of Solomon, is a song about King Solomon theoretically written in his time, circa 950 BC. The book does not list its author, but it was clearly written by a woman in love with Solomon. She is believed to have been referring to herself as a Shulamite in chapter 7, which suggests she was Abishag the Shulamite, King David's youngest concubine. The fifth book, Wisdom of Solomon was added to the Septuagint sometime between 250 and 132 BC, and while it was traditionally attributed to King Solomon, today scholars generally believed to have been composed in Greek, shortly before it was added to the Septuagint. The Wisdom of Solomon itself appears to have been redacted before the Greek translation, as the first half is about the spirit of wisdom, Sophia in Greek, who is credited with actually doing most of what the Lord (Iaw/Yahweh) was credited with doing in the Septuagint and Masoretic Texts, however, this changes abruptly to crediting the Lord in chapter 11, and Sophia disappeared entirely from the rest of the book. The sixth book, Psalms of Solomon, is also called Psalms of Salomon in many of the surviving manuscripts, although it is not clear why. At this time, it is universally agreed that the Psalms of Solomon is a pre-Christian work, as early Christian writers referred to it even though it is clearly not about the life of Jesus as described in the gospels. The seventh book, Testament of Solomon, was widely used by Christian and Gnostic astrologers in the first few centuries of the Christian era.

The Demons of Solomon is a modern Luciferian adaptation of the Testament of Solomon. This grimoire is a guide to practices of Hellenistic, Egyptian, Syrian, and Judeo-Christian demonology, contemporary throughout the 1st Century. The Testament of Solomon is an early legend with contents revealing a tome of magickial instruction. This Grimoire delves into the history with a structure of invoking using the teachings of demonology, angelology & talismans within the Luciferian Tradition. The Luciferian Path reveals practical Goetic Theurgy via the Black Art of Klesis, inspiring & enhancing the force of will towards Apotheosis. Beautifully illustrated by Mitchell Nolte with Kitti Solymosi.The Demons of Solomon contains: -The origins and descriptions of each demon and the sigils for invoking and consecrating the talismans for the magickial work of the Luciferian Magickian. -The myth, legend and context of the Testament of Solomon as a magical text written between the 1st and 5th century; while a mythological tale, the spirits contained therein were commonly known in Coptic-Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Syrian and Greek traditions in the Ancient Near East. -Modern Left-Hand Path adaptation, bringing a revitalization of nearly forgotten Magickial methods within a Luciferian framework, elevating the honor and intent of mutual patronage between Spirit and Black Magickian. The term of "Black Magician" is correctly unveiled to be defined as "Who uses Hidden and Forbidden Knowledge to Command forces and energies according to his or her own Will". -Sigils and Talismans are constructed utilizing the etymology, planetary, cosmological, and esoteric associations, and traits with symbolic attributes by author Michael W. Ford.
