Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

These are the references used in Agrippa's text to support the idea that not only was sex a sacred act, but the mystic marriage and the use of sex to achieve the mystic marriage were in the Bible itself, albeit in coded form.  The book Cornelius Agrippa: The Humanist Theologian and His Declamations by Marc Van Der Poel has been used as the main reference on the texts he used.

A description of the experience

Nunc in quos fines ususque – Sacramentum matrimonii antiquissimum est

1 Kings 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

1 Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat.

2 Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat.

3 So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king.

4 And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.
