rather afraid that the

title

will

scarcely give a correct

idea

of the contents of this book, for there is an old cabala and a new cabala, and these two are different. The first is very mainly Hebrew, and occasionally Greek the second is almost entirely Latin, and of much later invention, not being heard of till about A .D. 1530. The old cabala per gematriam, as it was technically spoken of, is well known to Biblical scholars The new cabala everywhere. is scarcely mentioned in any books of reference, and the works con taining specimens of it are rare in the highest degree this latter fact accounting for the general want of knowledge on the subject. What I mean by saying that the title may convey a wrong idea is that ninetynine persons out of a hundred would think of the old Hebrew and Greek cabala and the Jewish fancies therein displayed, whereas our Cabalistlca has to do with the of Christian record mainly Bibha^ fancy on Christian themes while here the Latin is the one tongue chiefly used.

Women comprise half, or more than half, of the human race, and their susceptibilities to a religion of faith and hope are much stronger and more persistent than those of the sterner sex.

to the fierce warrior or the subtle logician ? Many of the early Christians had, no doubt, been initiates, and when converted to the new method of salvation that Soteria so many were seeking in those days of religious revival they would readily understand the mystic or cryptic allusions in the writings of the New Testament, especially when written by converted initiates, as the writers of the Epistle to the Colossians and the Apocalypse most probably were. The mystic numbers of Daniel and the Apocalypse would be no new ground to initiates and deep religious inquirers. The philosophy of the ancients was greatly geometrical. It is a reported dictum of Plato that God Himself and it was the mark of the wise to under yea^erpet, stand hierophantic and other mysteries, and to deliver them in turn It was esoteric (IlapaSocris). knowledge not meant for those that were without, and therefore there was a certain concealment to preserve such matters from profane eyes ; but it was the duty and privilege of the "wise" within the fold, of those who had to "count "understanding," the number and possess the secret. Besides the cryptic signs known by tradition to the initiates, there was cryptic astrology as well. Many of the mystic numbers in the Bible are connected with the "

astronomy, motions of the heavenly bodies, the yearly motion of the sun (as was then thought) through the constellations, etc.

The

arithmeticians, especially Boethius, had a great deal more to say about than we have, and it was probably triangular and polygonal numbers from these sources that our cabalist obtained his singular notation.

we hear nothing of any Latin cabala till nearly a century and then, in 1621, a circle of literary ecclesiastics started the later, fashion on the occasion of the left arm of Blessed Conrad, a famous hermit in his time, being brought from Netina to Piacenza. A full account is given in the book Anathemata B. Conrado (Placentia, first Latin cabala that was made viz., 1621), and we are even told of the In Italy

His magnum opus, which, as he tells us, cost him the labour of three whole days, was the paragrammata he constructed from Gen. xxxix. 2-33. He took the German pretty well as it came verse by verse, and absolutely made fourteen successive cabalistica out of it, each counting up 11,500, which was the number of a short account of Joseph which he took for his programma. Riederer s preface is interesting for its simple-minded rambling account of his hobby, and how he defended it. He tells us that in 1714 he wished to send a little literary congratulation to a well-known professor at Altdorf, and at that time had not so much as heard what However, while turning over the leaves of that paragramma was.

collection of literary trifles, Das A.E.C. cum not is variorum, he came across a wedding congratulation to a certain Matthew 1703-8, Walther and his bride, wherein their names were cleverly paragrammatised from the first two verses of Psalm xx.

the Jews with their own petard was an ingenious, happy and proved effective in converting several Rabbis and learned thought, Jews when the ordinary Christian propagandist arguments would have been of no avail. The conversion of a Jew, especially a learned one, was thought much more of in those days than at present, and this was the case in England as well as abroad. There would be a public baptism, a great concourse to hear the sermon, and there would be very often a goodly sized pamphlet describing the antecedents and conversion of the baptised Jew. Several such have come down to us, and are preserved in the British Museum and elsewhere. My copy of Klchanon Paulus originally belonged to the Jesuits of Vienna, and has been carefully annotated. The Jesuits and the learned world generally were always ready to help and befriend a learned Jew who had accepted Christ. Indeed, Polanco, the literary manager and editor of Ignatius Loyola s writings, was a Neo-Christian Jew, and a great friend of the Basque saint. hoisting

* This German Scriptural cabala trigonalis obtained considerable credit and applause at Vienna when it was first circulated in 1714, and many copies were afterwards printed. There was a great desire among all the subjects of Charles VI. that the Emperor should have male progeny to maintain the succession to the throne ; and when shortly afterwards the Empress Elizabeth bore a son to the Emperor, this prophetical cabala was still more admired, as well as the one from Luc. i. 15 on the Emperor, which is quoted farther on in its This prophecy had the merit place. of fulfilment, which was more than a very good and famous anagram by a Jesuit succeeded in obtaining. The anagram was Carolus Sextus Imperator = Uxor pariet tres masculos," which was certainly neat and deserved success, though it was unable to command it. The author of our Biblical cabala was J. F. Riederer, a merchantpoet of Nuremberg, who was a very prolific cabalist, as appears in the Bibliography. "

NOVUM TESTAMENTUM CABALISTICUM


NOVUM TESTAMENTUM CABALISTICUM MY

New Testament collection begins with a long cabalistic soliloquy of the Virgin Mary on the words of the angel in Joseph s dream u Flee into ii. 13), (Matt. Egypt." It comes from the remarkable book of Josephus Mazza, the laborious Capucin, a work so rare that I know of no other copies in but own. He uses the for the texts of the England my Vulgate soliloquies, and other texts will be found further on in St. Luke and St. John. Each soliloquy of the Virgin contains sixty-three cabala, that her being supposed age when she died. The wording is generally very appropriate, and the labour entailed in making such excellent cabalistic lines must have been enormous.

These supputationes soon fell out of fashion, and hardly went beyond the circle of the literary dilettanti round about Piacenza, which included J. B. Spadius, Hieronymus Spadius, and Josephus Folianus, of Modena by birth, but a citizen of Piacenza. H. Spadius edited the collection, and J. Folianus gave a good synopsis of the cabalistic artifices and how they came into vogue.

For Ave Templum Sanctissimce Triadis is certainly such an ex in tremely ingenious and appropriate cabalistic interpretation of the words of the Angel Luke i. 28, that those readers who have come so far as this in my book, and have

JOSEPHUS MAZZA. Nay, I could bring nearly five hundred examples in Italian as well and this the only text in the whole Bible to which such remarks are applicable. The explanation of all this is simple enough when we hear it. These first six words of the Angelical Salutation have always been special favourites with \he anagram makers, ever since Joannes Baptista Agnensis, the blind dependent of Cardinal Julius Rospigliosus, sent forth his first hundred in i66r, which were so much admired. Before he died, he made over a thousand, all pure and appropriate and more marvellous still, a Pole, in 1702, sent forth a folio containing three thousand anagrams, all in the elegiac metre, and with other men s attempts my shelves contain nearly ten thousand specimens, all different text.

Now, although

the composition of an anagram is worked out in a way very different from the arithmetical process necessary for a good example of cabalistic art, still, when the anagram is completed, and the full number of letters appropriately used, if we count up the letters by any cabalistical progression we like to use, we get the same numerical result as would be obtained by counting up by the same cabalistical progression previously used the letters of the

BIBLIA CABAL1STICA Petrus Bungus,

who wrote

in the sixteenth century a ponderous few good remarks on 153. He endeavours, as his to show a and wondrous it, title-page expresses unceasing agreement between the old Pythagorean principle of mystic numbers and the of numeration used frequently in the Holy Scriptures. principle Necessarily there is much that is pure fancy in so elaborate a work, but he had carefully gone to all the original sources open to him at the time, and so his book is not without a certain value still. He says that the 153 fishes signify the whole multitude of the elect who shall be on the right hand of the Throne on the Day of Judgment. It was shortly after our Lord s Resurrection that the wonderful of fishes is related, and therein was a reference to the resurrection draught to a new and eternal life for all who were out of the safely brought into the or ark of the Church which floats at deep ship peace on the troubled and rising waters. The net was cast on the right side of the therefore there were no reprobate sinners taken in the net, for all ship these were on the left side. The net was not broken heresy and schism had not yet done damage. As for 153, it is the trigonal number of 17, and 17 represents the man complete in Christ, who has been

And

so the Apostle pointedly says,

The

but the

we must add the Spirit to the Letter, and perform the precepts of the Law in and through the Grace of our Saviour. This is adding 7 to 10 cabalistically, and the number of the perfect Christian (17) comes out, and, rising per cab, trigonalem i + 2 + ... to 3 17 153, represents the whole Church of the Elect and Perfect, which is the Body of Christ.* *

The apostate Ham, if reckoned with his father Noah, becomes 666, Noah and his two other sons, Shem and Japhet (omitting Ham), become 888, the number of the name of Jesus. Again, Shechem Ben Hamor, who in his seduction of Dinah is said while

to prefigure the seduction of Israel by the Antichrist, counts up 666 in the most characteristic way, for Shechem gives 360, and Ben Hamor 306, the same division as in Nero Caesar.

Again, there are three men who stand out in Scripture as avowed enemies of God and His people. Each is branded with this number 6. 1. Goliath, whose height was 6 cubits, and he had 6 pieces of armour, and his spear s head weighed 600 shekels of iron. 2.

This curious book belongs to the same class as the Vaticinia sive Prophetic Abbatis Joachimi, which had a large circulation in Italy towards the end of the sixteenth century, as the many editions tend to show. It is, however, much more bulky and learned than were either the of or the numerous Joachim Prophecies Prophetic and Hieroglyphic There wheels which were published about the same period in Italy. is some likeness between these latter and the Zadkiel and Old Moore s Almanacs of the present day, and though originally in Latin, they were made popular by an appended Italian translation and explanation and the hieroglyphics, as with Zadkiel and the rest, were a great attraction. But though there are hieroglyphical figures throughout the work of Albricius, his is a very different style of culture from Old Moore and his followers. He was a patrician, a philosopher, and a man of medical which makes it all the more strange that he should write such science, ;
