Leraje - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)

Leraie [Loray], alias Oray, a great marquesse, shewing himselfe in the likenesse of a galant [handsome] archer, carrieng a bowe and a quiver, he is author of all battels, he dooth putrifie all such wounds as are made with arrowes by archers, Quos optimos objicit tribus diebus, [who best drives away mobs from the days (?)] and he hath regiment over thirtie legions.

Original Text: Loray, alias Oray, magnus Marchio, se ostendens in forma sagittarii pulcherrimi, pharetram and arcum gestantis: author existit omnium præliorum, and vulnera putrefacit quæ à sagittariis infliguntur, quos objicit optimos tribus diebus. Triginta dominatur legionibus.

Leraje - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy

Original Text :

Oray ou Loray, grand marquis des enfers, qui se montre sous là forme d’un superbe archer portant un arc et des flèches; il anime les combats, empire les blessures faites par les archers, lance les javelines les plus meurtrières. Trente légions

le reconnaissent pour dominateur et souverain.
Leraje - Demon and Spirit of Solomon
Leraie: The fourteenth demon of the Goetia. The name of this demon appears in many forms, depending on the source consulted. In Wierus’s Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, his name is given as Loray. The same text suggests that he is sometimes also known as Oray. In Scot’s Discoverie of Witchcraft, the name of this demon is spelled Leraie, which
is curious, considering Scot was merely translating Wierus’s Pseudomonarchia. In the Goetia of Dr. Rudd, the name is given as Leraic, while elsewhere in manuscripts attributed to Dr. Rudd (including the Treatise on Angel Magic), it is spelled variously Leraje and Leraye and Leraiel. By the time it gets to Steve Savedow’s Goetic Evocation, the name is spelled Leriakhe. Despite the confusion on the spelling of his name, almost all sources agree that this demon appears in the form of an archer, complete with a bow and a quiver full of arrows. He is a martial demon with the power to putrefy all wounds made by arrows. He is also said to instigate battles. He holds the rank of marquis and has a regiment of thirty legions at his command. In the Goetia of Dr. Rudd, he is called Leraic, and he is constrained by the angel Mebahel.
