Occultism (from Latin occultus 'hidden', 'concealed', 'secret') is a vague collective term for a wide variety of phenomena, practices and ideological systems, whereby occult can be roughly synonymous with esoteric, paranormal, mystical or psychic.
Evocation (Latin evocatio = calling out / summoning) or as a practice of occultism refers to a magical practice in which a spirit being is to be summoned.
