Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to study of astrology and magic historically in a philosophical context, and also in that of religious ideas in the Renaissance. The definition of natural magic given by Ficino and Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola in 1486 was taken up by Agrippa and through him by Della Porta: the encyclopedias of magic produced by these writers ensured a long life for the formulas of the Florentine magicians.

Keywords: Della Porta; Ficino; Giovanni Pico della Mirandola; natural magic; religious ideas
