" Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?" Acts 7:42
"And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth." Jeremiah 8:2



  • Various numerological properties have also been associated with magic squares. Pivari associates the squares illustrated above with Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon, respectively. Attractive patterns are obtained by connecting consecutive numbers in each of the squares (with the exception of the Sun magic square). [17]
    • Religions based on "cosmic priciples" based on 7 planets:
  • Here are some additional notes on the history of magic squares (from the on-line magazine Convergence). [18]
    • The idea of the magic square was transmitted to the Arabs from the Chinese, probably through India, in the eighth century and is discussed by Thabit ibn Qurra (known for his formula for amicable numbers) in the early ninth. A list of squares of all orders from 3 to 9 are displayed in the Encyclopaedia, (the Rasa`il), compiled about 990 by a group of Arabic scholars known as the "brethren of purity" (the Ikhwan al- safa), (see [11], Vol. 1, pp. 660f.). Despite all this, no general constructive methods appeared until slightly later. In 1225, Ahmed al-Buni showed how to construct magic squares using a simple bordering technique, but he may not have discovered the method himself. Biggs ([3], p.120), referring to a paper by Camman ([5] ), suggests that the methods explained by Moschopoulos may have been of Persian origin and be linked to those expounded by al-Buni. Camman indeed claims that the two methods given by Moschopoulos for constructing odd magic squares were known to the Persians, citing an anonymous Persian manuscript (Garrett Collection no. 1057, Princeton University). Even so, this document contains examples and not explicit methods.
    • It appears that magic squares were introduced to Europe through Spain. Indeed, Abraham ben Meir ibn Ezra (c. 1090-1167), an Hispano-Jewish philosopher and astrologer, translated many Arabic works into Hebrew and had a deep interest in magic squares and numerology in general. He travelled widely throughout Italy and beyond, and may have been the one of the people responsible for the introduction of magic squares into Europe.

Sator Square

  • Various notes:
    • The Sator-Rotas Square (or Templar Magic Square), with the embedded anagram of Pater Noster, is an ancient charm of great power and mystery. The earliest example was discovered scratched on a wall in the buried city of Pompeii and dated back to the first century AD. Although used by early Christian Mystics as a magical charm the square has surfaced in cultures and religions all over the world. Because of the hidden anagram, Pater Noster, the square was originally thought to be of Christian design, but there is now strong evidence that it predates Christianity by a considerable margin and refers to the ancient God, Mithras. In Rome during the Middle Ages this square was inscribed on a variety of common, everyday objects such as utensils and drinking vessels. It was also found above doorways. It was believed that the square had magical properties, and that making it visible would ward off evil spirits. The words on this square roughly translate to "The Creator (or Savior) holds the working of the spheres in his hands." C. W. Ceram read the square boustrophedon (in alternating directions), with tenet repeated. This produces Sator opera tenet; tenet opera sator, translated: 'The Great Sower holds in his hand all works; all works the Great Sower holds in his hand.' (Ceram 1958, p. 30) [19]
    • According to the 16 th century grimoire "geistliche Schild" (spiritual shield) To extinguish the fire mark letters "Sator, Arepo, Opera, Rotas" on each side of a plate and throw it into fire. [20]

Usage of Sigils and Magic Squares

  • The Abramelin operation: After the preparatory phase has been successfully completed, the magician's Holy Guardian Angel will appear to reveal, to the magician, magical secrets. Once this is accomplished, the magician must evoke the twelve Kings and Dukes of Hell (Lucifer, Satan, Leviathan, Belial, etc.) and bind them. Thereby, the magician gains command of them in his own mental universe, and removes their negative influence from his life. Further, these spirits must deliver a number of familiar spirits (four principal familiars, and several more associated with a set of magical word-square talismans provided in the Abramelin's Book Four). The magical goals for which the demons can be employed are typical of those found in grimoires: the practitioner is promised the ability to find buried treasure, cast love charms, the ability of magical flight, and the secret of invisibility- to list a small number of examples.
