SYMBOLS - PENTAGRAM - PENTAGON Three magical symbols from a 14th century manuscript grimoire, designed to reveal a design which no spirit (when conjured, or otherwise) might penetrate, to reach the magician within. [Top] Within the encircled triangle is the symbol of the World, divided into three parts (the three 'continents' of Europe, Africa and Asia, in the ancient world maps), with the Cross marking the fabled place of the Garden of Eden, to the East. The centre of this world symbol is supposed to be Jerusalem, so this entire figure is centred on this city. [Below left] The encircle

SYMBOLS - PENTAGRAM - PENTAGON Three magical symbols from a 14th century manuscript grimoire, designed to reveal a design which no spirit (when conjured, or otherwise) might penetrate, to reach the magician within. [Top] Within the encircled triangle is the symbol of the World, divided into three parts (the three 'continents' of Europe, Africa and Asia, in the ancient world maps), with the Cross marking the fabled place of the Garden of Eden, to the East. The centre of this world symbol is supposed to be Jerusalem, so this entire figure is centred on this city. [Below left] The encircled pentagram, with a cross marking the central pentagon. The word Saba within this space may be the magical name of The Queen of Sheba. The magician would stand on the cross to evoke spirits. [Below right] The pentagram, with the magical Tau in the central pentagram, reinforced with the Latin words meaning 'Tau Symbol'.
