Pre-Roman paganism, its magic in Iberia and particularly in Lusitania can be a hard subject, the sources are scarce – not as scarce as painted – and historians are often afraid to make decisions based on the archaeological findings. To worsen it, almost no author magician has leant over it far enough, partially discouraged by academics against any form of revival but also because creating a system to work with the ancient spirits of Iberia would require the capacity to do precisely that, and to do it in connection with the respective tutelary deities.
This work can count with extensive readings by the author of academic and archaeological papers, as well as the study of the conjectures of fellow pagans who adhere to the cause of the Lusitanian deities and ancestral traditions. However, the work at hands is mainly the result of group workings starting in 2007 at ancient pagan sites in Portugal, followed by a larger period of solo work with the deities and the ancestral cults.
The first attempts by the author to form an effective mode for the solo practitioner to work with these gods and goddesses, in 2010, were considered by himself non efficient, and were aborted. However, in one of his previous initiations the oath of undergoing this mission had been taken, and it was twelve years after first attempting to succeed, that the art matured enough to be easily used by any magician experienced in the evocational tradition.
