¶ Ars Philtron was the incepting grimoire of the Verdelet of the Cultus Sabbati. Its primary foci are Sabbatic-alchemical gnosis as manifest through the medium of the Potion, and the applications of the principle formulae of Furnace, Vessel, and Water. Its method and praxis concern the principal Sabbatic philtre types, their arcana, pharmacoepia, formulation, and ritual use. As a grammar of the Art Magical, the work instaurates the Philtre as an emanation of the Vinum Sabbati, the manifest elixir of witch-power. Originally released in a very limited edition of only 144 copies, the unique subject matter and scarcity of the work created a very high demand, and in the spirit of continuity of vision Xoanon re-released the work in 2008 in the expanded 'Edition Codex Vasculum'.
