PostSubject: Witches Alphabet.   Sun Dec 07, 2008 8:22 am

Also called the Theban Alphabet, many witches use this alphabet to encode their spells and writings in their Book of Shadows. In doing this they keep their writings safe from prying eyes. They also use this to secretly writethe symbols into wood, candles and stone to use as amulets or for spells.




History of the Alphabet.
The earliest known source for the Theban alphabet is as said above from Cornelius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" first published at Antwerp in 1531. Agrippa provided the Theban Script in Book III, Chapter 29 and wrote, "Of this kind of character therefore are those which Peter Apponus notes, as delivered by Honorius of Thebes". This is almost certainly a reference to the author of the early 14th century "Liber Juratus, or the Sworne Booke of Honorius".

However, it is believed that the Theban alphabet actually originated as a Latin cipher before the 11th-century. The origin of the letterforms is obscure, but all the evidence is consistent with an origin as an early alchemical cipher alphabet influenced by Avestan. Others say that the alphabet first appeared in the book entitled, "The Magus" by Honorius II (Pope from 1216 to 1227) Users of this magickal alphabet often include a stylized character at the end of a writing. This character is translated as the Greek Alpha and Omega.

I found it in my early teens in a book and I was mesmerised by it lol. It's beautiful to write in too - I don't use it for my spells but I use it for my blogs in my BoS Smile
