Broadcast notes:

With the imminent releases of the new Harry Potter film and book on July 11 and July 21 respectively I thought it would be of interest to listeners to learn about an actual magical manuscript held in the University’s collections.

One of the more unusual and exotic treasures of The University of Newcastle is a French magical manuscript entitled Talismans Cabalistiques Magiques, grands secretes des Planettes. The manuscript from an unknown scribe bears the date 1704 in the reign of the Sun King Louis XIV, le Grand Monarque and le Roi Soleil (1638-1715).

The book is a compendium of information relating to the manufacture of celestial talismans. The availability of such works in this country are scarce and places the University in the vanguard of the great continental European libraries and Beinecke Mellon Collection of Yale University.

The work is a manual of practical Cabalistic magic which instructs the reader in the art of using talismans which will attract and magnify the powers of the planets and which in turn give the user power over angels whose names have been revealed by the Cabalistic tradition.

The work is a quarto volume of ca. 500 pages with sixteen pages of hand-colored diagrams and arcane symbols and written on twenty ruled lines within a frame of c.180 x 120 mm ruled on each page. About 10 containing human figures or mythical creatures, the others Hebrew and alchemical characters, and with dozens of other pages of tables of Hebrew, alchemical and astrological symbols. On p.455, there is an alphabetical index to the content of the book.

The impetus for the acquisition of the work was the lack of primary research materials held by the Library in this newly emerging field of historical research. Interest in the field on campus and the wider community is significant as displayed by the huge number of enrollments in the University’s Classics courses on Magic & Witchcraft in Antiquity, the most successful non first year subject in the Department’s history.

After a careful examination of the written text we can confirm that the work consists of an eclectic re-arrangement of chapters from Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s De Occulta Philosophia (Three Books of Occult Philosophy) originally published in full in 1533.

Provenance of the Manuscript

The University of Newcastle purchased the manuscript in 1999. It was formerly in the Library of the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles California. This library was established by the late Manly Palmer Hall.

The manuscript also bears the bookplate of “Newborough” with the motto “Suaviter in modo fortiter in re” (Gentle in manner, resolute in execution). There is the possibility that the manuscript could have resided at Plas Glynllifon, once the seat of the Newborough family. In 1948, a large part of the estate was sold and it was probably at this time that the book was sold as well. (see the Cyngor Gwynedd Council website for more information)

The identity of the French scribe who copied the manuscript from Cornelius Agrippa’s famous work remains a mystery.

Henry Cornelius Agrippa (1486-1535)

Henry Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim was born on the 14 September 1486 Cologne and died around 1535 in Grenoble.
He was a well educated man with an encyclopediac mind who spoke eight tongues – German, French, Italian, Spanish, English, Latin, Greek and Hebrew.

In the Winter of 1509 the 23 year old Agrippa met the Abbott Trithemius to discuss magic, especially the restoration of the magical arts.

Agrippa’s influences included Trithemius (Steganographia), Pliny the Elder, Raymond Lull (Ars Brevis) , Reuchlin’s De Verbo Mirifico – and attended lectures of 1509. Classical greek and latin and Arabic authors.

Other influences include Marilio Ficino especially his translation of the Corpus Hermeticum.

He sent Trithemius a copy of his work De Occulta Philosophia around 8 April 1510.
Trithemius was full of praise, but cautioned him to examine his topics more closely and be careful with how you divulge the information. This could explain why it remained in manuscript until 1531.

1519 Successfully defended a poor girl accused of witchcraft (because her mother was burned as a witch) and quoted from the ‘stupid’ book Malleus Maleficarum saying “Do figments like these move us to the torturing of harmless women?”

1526 Agrippa loses his pension

1529 Agrippa was archivist and imperial historian at the court of Margareth of Austria

1529 Declamation on the Preeminence and Nobility of the Female Sex argues that women are more than equal to men in all things that really matter, including the public spheres from which they had long been excluded.

1530 De Vanitate published

1531 De Occulta Philosophia (Book 1 only, but contents of 2-3 as well) published – brings criticism

1533 De Occulta Philosophia published in full

1535 Banished to France after being forced into exile by Emperor Charles I who saw the Vanitate as an affront.

1535 Death in Grenoble on his way to Lyons France. Aged 49 years old. Buried within a convent of the Dominicans

A Major influence on Agrippa was Marsilio Ficino translation of Corpus Hermeticum. Works attributed to Hermes Trismegistus (Thrice Greatest Hermes), a contemporary of Moses (or as it was believed until disputed by Issac Causabon in 1614.

1460 Monk Leonardo Di Pistoia brought to Florence the Greek text of the Corpus Hermeticum to Cosimo de Medici
Cosimo gives it to the 30 year old translater of Plato Marsilio Ficino to translate into Latin

1463 Translation is complete and by 1471 is brought together into one corpus

3 thoughts on “Magical Manuscript 1704

  1. This is a most important manuscript for ALL researchers interested in the FOUNDATION of MAGIC from which the WESTERN EMPIRE emerges and SELF SUSTAINS. Whilst many who are CONDITIONED by the materialist reductionist and AUTHORISED science and philosophy that seeks to PRESERVE the COLONISATION and EXPLOITATION of ALL KINGDOMS and of the HUMAN MIND for the BENEFIT OF THE RULING ELITE (FINANCIERS AND INTERNATIONALIST CONSORTIUMS) which today is transparently UNVEILED as the ANGLO AMERICAN AUSTRALIAN JUDEO-CHRISTIAN DEIST allegiance – visible more and more as the INTERNATIONALIST QUEST CONSOLIDATES nationalist imperatives for SOCIAL CONTROL (liberation?)through the continued evolution of SOPHISTICATED TECHNOLOGIES that serve SECURITY and MILITARY BASED ECONOMIES OF POWER and are TURNED UPON THE general population through MASS MEDIA PROJECTIONS presume such occult treasures to issue forth from the SUPERSTITIOUS realm of FANTASTIC and MYTHICAL CONJECTURE- it will be realised that the HIGHERDIMENSIONAL COSMOLOGY that has been PREVENTED FROM GROUNDING as it threatens the socio economic system that is the source of the CURRENT agglomeration of GLOBAL CRISES —- will eventually open a DISCOURSE OF NON DUAL DUALITY- rather than the PERSISTENT simplistic and BINARY bifurcations of CONFLICTING EXTREMES that SUPPORTS FRAGMENTATION AND INCOHERENCE and consequent IGNORANCE and inability to develop CLEAR CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS.
    The history of Magic is inextricably associated and embedded within the history of WRITING – SPELLING – and consequently of RELIGION – of MONOTHEISM AND of philosophical MONISM- of ALPHABETIC GRAMMATRIAS- of GEOMANTIC ARCHITECTURES, of the history of CYBERNETICS and ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE of history of MILITARY NATIONAL SECURITIES and the HISTORY OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING and the DIVISION BETWEEN THE MASSES AND THE RULING CLASSES- and of the FOUNDATIONAL PLAGERISM that occurred with the 17th century establishment of the BRITISH ROYAL SOCIETY under the MOTTO – “on the words of no-one” NULLIUS VERBA- the work of FRANCIS BACON- under the reign of the HEAD OF THE SCOTTISH RITE- KING JAMES I – at a time when ROYAL CHARTERS were instigated- the NEW ATLANTIS embarked upon with the establishment of JONESTOWN- the rest is AMERICAN MASONIC HISTORY and the DIFFERENCE between it and PREHISTORIC INDIGENOUS COSMOLOGIES of CONTINUOUS CREATION and of DIAGONAL WEAVINGS of TOPOLOGICAL FORMS— PRECOLONISATION- (colonisation occurs at the roots of history- “liberation” of the indigenous from the natural state- as a means of ENSLAVEMENT through the IMPOSITION of the SOCIAL CONTRACT- and the consequent THEFT of cosmological knowledge TWISTED TO CONFORM TO THE NEW WORLD PHOENICIAN GREEK PIRATE ROMAN EMPIRE from which this contemporary debarcle springs)

    DEMANDS SERIOUS AND URGENT RESEARCH at a time when the ARTS THEMSELVES are THREATENED and REDUCED as they are not BUSINESS ORIENTED -THE VALUE OF THE ARTS in the UNIVERSITY CULTURE- SUBJECT AREAS DANGEROUSLY THREATENED by the BUSINESS/EDUCATION agenda of the AMERICANISED EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT IS PROGRESSIVELY TURNING ALL UNIVERSITIES INTO GRANDIOSE TECHNICAL COLLEGES.

    WE are facing the WALL of POTENTIAL FUTURES- gross reduction of human freedom and continuous WAR OF LIBERATION (SIC) against EVIL???? and continued destruction of this earth- or WAKING UP OUT OF THE STUPOR OF 3-4,000 years of SOCIAL CONTROL under the ANCIENT PSYCHOPATHOLOGICAL agenda for GLOBAL GOVERNANCE.

  2. Dear Sirs,

    Having read your article, I am the owner of the house Plas Glynllifon which houses a very large stained glass window which is depicted at the beginning of the book.
    Also the Agrippas diary and the date 1519 where he defends a girl accused of witchcraft, is very similar to a story about our resident spirit that is reputed to haunt Plas Glynllifon.
    Also having a book of magic, also relates to another story about an early settler on the estate who was reputed to have stolen a book of spells from a witches coven, because if you look carefully at the shield it shows a black foot which belongs to an ancestor called Cilmyn Troed or Cilmyn blackfoot.
    Could you please get in touch as I have a few more questions that I would like to ask about this manuscript.
    Thank you.
