Athanasius Kircher – Musurgia Universalis - Saturn



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Athanasius Kircher – Musurgia Universalis (Rome 1650) translated by Joscelyn Godwin

Saturn, the third globe, corresponds to the Thrones or the intelligence Schabtael.  By its influent virtue it generates in us firm fixed and unshakeable judgement [prudentia], as if binding man especially to the throne of his councils.  Not without cause do the Hebrews call this Schabtai that is 'my seat'.
