What's a cool book to read about medieval to modern esoterism/"compendium of occult things" (sort of like a bestiary)?

feralhouse.com maybe?

Cornelius Agrippa's Declamation Attacking the Uncertainty and Vanity of the Sciences and the Arts is a summary of magic and occult ideas since Greco-Roman antiquity and in his Three Books Concerning Occult Philosophy there is a classification of demons. Not
Medieval tough, Renaissance.

And de Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal is a 19th century book on demonology with cool illustrations.

If anyone can recommend a medieval bestiary I'd like to know about that one too.

Wikiped is a pretty cool book continually written by paid demons. They are paid by certain folks that they don't like to criticize. But also people who don't post on here and spend their lives obsessed with a specific god or idea. Like the article on goddess worship.

Like >>17343002 said, Aggrippa kind of wrote a "state of the art" thing with his three books. Took a lot from Ficino and Mirandola.

You should also look at his sources, the Clavicle of Solomon and the Picatrix.

I've read his occult philosophy. Doesn't offer much informations regarding the higher beings.
