This word is from the Hebrew, and signifies knowledge transmitted by tradition. Paracelsus and several authors of the 16th and 17th centuries have spoken much of this species of magic, which they distinguished into Juda'ic or theolo'gian, and Hermet'ic or medic"inal; the latter being, according to them, the art of knowing the most occult properties of bodies by an immediate communication with spirits,-the knowledge being thus acquired by inspiration, and incapable of inducing error. It was also called Ars cabalis'tica seu signa'ta, 'cabalistic art.'
