Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Athanasius Kircher – Musurgia Universalis (Rome 1650) translated by Joscelyn Godwin
The globe of Mars follows, which with its fiery and incendiary energy suits best the Virtues; a fire which by its virtue burns up the bile in us, makes us able easily to accomplish hard tasks and increases our strength and fortitude. To this globe are subject all things in the lower world endowed with a martial nature.
