Silver Dagger thinks (incorrectly) that he's killed Dr. Strange. Now he wants to "save" Clea, thinking (incorrectly) she's a regular human hippie who got corrupted by Dr. Strange's black magics.
Whenever you hear someone saying "I'm as sane as anyone!" you know they are going into an origin flashback.
Fanaticism. It will nail you every time.
So, the Vatican keeps black magic books. Which makes as much sense the Ministry of Magic keeping "forbidden tombs" in Hogwarts' library where curious students can read them.
Silver Dagger should make sure that "Necronomicon" isn't a prank book created by Lovecraft fans.
I'm pretty sure "fight fire with fire" doesn't hold true for evil magic. This took place shortly after Dr. Strange took over as the Sorcerer Supreme for the Ancient One... by killing him (to stop Shumah-Gorath and save the world), and the Ancient One ascended to a higher plateau.
