PostSubject: The Alphabet of the Magi   Sun Jul 22, 2007 10:24 pm

The Alphabet of the Magi as it is called is another of what are considered the magickal texts becasue they came to be used for reasons relating to the occult or the arcane.

The Alphabet of the Magi was invented by Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (also known as Paracelsus) in the 16th century. He used it to engrave the names of angels on talismans which he claimed could treat illnesses and provide protection. It was probably influenced by the various other magical alphabets that were around at the time and also by the Hebrew script.
