Goetia is a practice which involves invoking ("calling") angels and demons. The word came from the 17th-century grimoire The Lesser Key of Solomon. It describes the calling of seventy-two demons. The book was edited by Aleister Crowley in 1904. It was then called The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King.

The word comes from the Greek: γοητεία goēteia, meaning "sorcery".
