The Necromancer was formerly a demon named Armand, who had a tumultuous relationship with Penny Halliwell, the grandmother of the Charmed Ones. Though they truly and passionately loved each other, he betrayed her, causing her to vanquish him. Presumably foreseeing that either she or her descendants would have to deal with his return at some point in the future, she added an entry of him in the Book of Shadows.
THE ORIGIN OF NECROMANCER AND NECRONOMICON:
.The word necromancy is adapted from Greek nekromanteía, a compound of Ancient Greek (nekrós), "dead body", and manteía, menaing divination by means of; this compound form was first used by Origen of Alexandria in the 3rd century AD. The Classical Greek term was nekyia, from the episode of the Odyssey in which Odysseus visits the realm of the dead. Nekyia however is not a Greek word, but Sanskrit and it means cluster, collection, multitude, referring to Nirukta, which provides insight into the hidden content of the Veda, called Vedanges, which is referring to the number 6. Just like the limp of the body, they perform various supportive functions in the study of Veda.
The six Vedangas are Siksha, Chhanda, Vyakarana, Nirukta, Jyotisha and Kalpa. The Veda contains mysterious symbolism, not understood at all, which is obvious from Greek mythology, the interpretation of the Sanskrit words becoming spells, witchcraft and mythology turned science upside down. A good example is the mythology of the scorpion, based on Scorpius, a giant scorpion sent by Gaia to kill Orion. Latin sources add that Oenopion was the son of Dionysus. Dionysus sent satyrs to put Orion into a deep sleep so he could be blinded. Another source tells the same story but converts Oenopion into Minos of Crete. It adds that an oracle told Orion that his sight could be restored by walking eastward and that he found his way by hearing the Cyclops' hammer, placing a Cyclops (Cyclops from Sanskrit Kalpa) as a guide on his shoulder; The Cyclops or Kalpa hammer is referring to the rhythm of the drum played in the performance of rituals, mantra, vedic hymns. The Vedic hymns with the right sound vibrations opened the mind to the medium of ether, space, communication with the universe, and not with the dead.
Necronomicon, from Sanskrit Nirukta is a study of Sanskrit, an interpretation and analysis of difficult words, which provides insight into the hidden content of the Veda. It doesn't mean communicating with the dead or spell. Nirukta contain obscure and unknown words, an in-depth study, which helps to discover the hidden meaning of its linguistic and philosophic significance. However, the study of the words didn't only apply to long words, but each letter contain a hidden meaning. For example studying the word ORION reveals its hidden secrets. For instance O is a representation of observation, eye, RI is referring to gamut, scale, collective inhabitants, and nA means knowledge, centre, and our connection as an umbilical cord to the ORION star system and to humanity... It is a highly advanced picture thinking, and with one word you are able to see its many components as one.
With the arrival of the Gorgon Demons and with the enslavement of the Romany people (gypsies) all this knowledge is wiped out and used upside down, given different meanings altogether and it is in fragments. That is what the blinding of the Cyclops representing, wiping out the ancient knowledge, blinding you to the truth..
The Charmed Cards is coming soon, for those, who are collectors of Charmed. The Charmed Book of Shadows, or "the Book of Shadows", is a fictional book of witchcraft from the TV series Charmed. Witches however, always used their own "Book of Shadows" where they kept their spells, recepies and every Book of Shadows is different. In the movie, the Charmed Book of Shadows was created by Melinda Warren and was passed down through many generation to the Charmed Ones. The Charmed Book of Shadows contains spells, incantations, potions and information of the evil beings that their ancestors have once faced. They first find out that they were witches when Phoebe finds the Book of Shadows in their attic, at midnight on a full moon, and reads an incantation. The Book of Shadows is enchanted. It can protect itself from any evil being who touch it. Outside of the television series, a Book of Shadows is considered to be a collection of magical and religious texts of Wicca and other Neo-pagan and witchcraft traditions, containing witches ethics, philosophy, the rituals, practices.
