The Key of Solomon is probably the most famous and influential of all Grimoires. While it claims to have originated with King Solomon, scholars typically identify the Grimoire as a 14th- or 15th-century piece of Latin literature. It inspired many other grimoires such as The Lesser Key of Solomon.

The Key of Solomon is divided into two sections:

The first section of the Key of Solomon includes a variety of chants, spells, and curses to summon or restrain demons and the spirits of the dead. The section also touches on other magic spells dealing with how to become invisible and how to find love.

The second section of the Key of Solomon lists and describes a variety of purifications an exorcist should undergo. Instructions are given on clothing, magical devices, and even animal sacrifices.

The Key of Solomon has received attention due to being featured in Dan Brown’s bestselling 2009 novel The Lost Symbol.
