A Magic Square is a matrix arrangement of numbers, usually integers, such that the sum of the numbers in all rows, all columns and both diagonals is always the same constant.
This constant sum is called Magical Constant or Magical Sum, while the number of numbers for each row and column defines the so called order of the Square.
Magical and mathematical properties of Magic Squares were acknowledged in China, India and the Middle East thousands of years ago, spreading up in Europe. They were known as Kamea in Hebrew.
In his De Occulta Philosophia, Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa wrote about the magical virtues of seven magical squares of orders 3 to 9, each connected with one of the seven Planets. Agrippa’s Magical Squares entered in the Western magical tradition and they continue to be used even today in differents magical paths - from Cerimonial Magic to Wicca.
Kameas are usually used as a pattern upon which to construct Magical Sigils, intended for use to call Spirits of differents kind or as powerful Talismans. Those Sigils represents the essence of the Formula they bring cyphered.
