Georg von Welling was born in Schwaben, Bavaria, in 1655. He worked as the director of the BadenDurlacher Office of Building and Mines until 1723 and died in 1725 in Frankfurt. Von Welling was primarily known for his book Opus MagoCabbalisticum et Theosophicum, which influenced numerous subsequent authors and informed much of the tradition of Western Ritual Magick. Joseph McVeigh is a professor of German Studies at Smith College with the interest and skills necessary to translate such an arcane occult classic.
