The Book of Magic

From PathfinderWiki
Nethys's Holy Symbol

The Book of Magic is the primary holy text of Nethys, the god of magic and the official text of his church.

It is a comprehensive guide for learning and harnessing magic and the ramifications of its use and misuse. The book is full of contradictions. It may act as a primer for an acolyte wizard, but if its metaphors and codicils were taken as a guide to morality, the result would a confused and fractured.12

Due to the countless contradictions within the text, most churches of Nethys adapt the set of ideals they find most convenient.3
