Steganographia (Secret Writing), by Johannes Trithemius. 1500.
Part 1.
Edited by Joseph H. Peterson, 1997-1998.
Note:
If you find this document and others in the archives useful, please do not copy except for privateuse.This is Trithemius’ most notorious work. On the surface it is a system of angel magic, but within is ahighly sophisticated system of cryptography. It claims to contain a synthesis of the science of knowledge, the art of memory, magic, an accelerated language learning system, and a method of sending messages without symbols or messenger. In private circulation, the Steganographia broughtsuch a reaction of fear that he decided it should never be published. He reportedly destroyed the moreextreme portions (presumably instructions for prophecy/divination) but it continued to circulate in mssform and was eventually published posthumously in 1606.Many of the details of the spirits described here also occur in Lemegeton.
Note on orthography:
Because this work deals with hidden writing I have made every effort topreserve the original orthography. Because of the limitations of HTML, tildes (~) which appear abovecertain letters in the original text are here represented by the letter followed by the tilde, i.e. is herewritten ’u~’. They generally represent ’n’ or ’m’. = ’q
e
’ = ’que’. The typographer’s marks’Schwartz’ and ’Roth’ evidently refer to text written with black and red ink in the original manuscript.
