Untitled[edit]

SenoraRaton- Are Agrippa's books copyrighted? I have links to PDF's versions that I would like to add. If they aren't.

Considering that he lived a considerably long time ago. His books are pretty much up for grabs really. go on upload your documents and let us all benefit from them. Regards, DCW.  :-D

Interesting reading over these pages. I wrote my book 'The Occult Science of Correspondences' on the topic some 20 years ago now, I've put an abridged version of it on the page as an external link. It's been on the web since the early 90's. I wouldn't write the same book today but most of the conclusions would be the same I think, it would just be better written. Regards, DCW.

What is a theologist? Something different from a theologian?

Sebastjan

OED seems to think that they're the same.

Rudy



I beleive that they have the same meaning. The diferrence may be that a theologist has studied the subject, in contradiction with the theologian who may just have some certain beliefs about God or religion. (This is just my opinion please do not take it as granted).

Nikos - Greece

The difference you describe is entirely imaginary.

http://www.renaissanceastrology.com/agrippa.html Astrology & Magic of Agrippa[edit]

The link

[[Astrology & Magic of Agrippa]]

is from an IP having made lots of addition of these pages, most of which seem completely unnecesary, could someone with more insight into these areas please check if the website is notable? Lundse 15:37, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

The information on Renaissance magic in general and Agrippa in particular seems reasonably solid, but the page really seems to be an advertisement for various astrological and magical services, applications, lessons, etc. for sale through that site. I'd exclude it from the article. 208.102.87.91 (talk) 15:01, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Conflicting Paragraphs[edit]

THe paragraph describing his service to Maximilian I says he WAS persecuted, the very next says he was not. I've tagged both for citation, so that perhaps a rewrite can be made. ThuranX 16:35, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Real People in Harry Potter[edit]

Cornelius Agrippa, Nicolas Flamel, and Mrs. Flamel are three people from the real world who appear in the Potter Universe ("Potterverse"). Are there any others besides these three? Das Baz, aka Erudil 15:51, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Dating of his being at the University of Dole[edit]

According to George Knowles at Controverscial.com he was here in 1509 and at the University of Pavia in 1512. He quotes 4 references but does not indicate from which one this comes.

From the order of the author's writing it appears 1509 could be correct, and 1512 a confusion with his time at the University of Pavia Dr Ron Howe (talk) 13:41, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

A bit of Pop Culture?[edit]

Just a heads up that Cornelius Agrippa is featured as a main character in the video-game Amnesia: Dark Descent along with ideas of his life work twisted to fit the game's story. 84.92.16.13 (talk) 09:53, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
