Something legal this time :)

The Jewish National and University Library has digitized a large number of books, including Peculium Abrae by Abraham ben Meir de Balmes, which contains the Transitus Fluvii alphabet which also appears in Panteo's Voarchadumia.

Requires the DjVu plug-in (available from the website as a free download). Does not work in Chrome but functions OK in Firefox.

Also available is the Hebrew Grammar by Gesenius, and a large collection of works on the Cabala:

http://aleph500.huji.ac.il/nnl/dig/books_kab.html

Most of these are in Hebrew, but there are also works by Pico and Khunrath.

Also Steinschneider's "Die hebräischen Übersetzungen des Mittelalters":

http://aleph500.huji.ac.il/nnl/dig/books_msc.html

...and alchemical works by Michael Maier and Artephius:

In this work, Splendor lucis (Vienne, 1745), from the pen of ‘Aloys Weiner ’ (actually, Perlin Lippman), later knighted von Sonnenfels, and given to Jung by Gershom Scholem ...

... the author draw a list of the patriarchs, beginning with Hermes (?!), Abraham, Isaac, etc.

At the section ‘Solomonis, Canticum Canticorum de Tinctura Physica’, on page [138]126, is this strange ‘TABULA SPHIROTICA’, an interesting attempted at correspondence:

http://www.e-rara.ch/cgj/content/pageview/2574960


But since the work is a rather late one, I was wondering if Lippman really came up with these analogies himself, or if he was ‘inspired’ by a previous author. Anyone that saw it printed before?

Certainly very strange. I have never seen Tiphareth assigned to the Moon anywhere else. Usually = the Sun.
