("They"; "The Substitutes") A group of seven (or seventy) spirits who ensure the continuos existence of life & the universe.

Essentially, they see to it that God does not interfere and inhibit the free will he has given to nature in sympathy for the suffering it has chosen. Keep in mind the Abdaals are an extension of God and one in the same. So in a sense, they are the part of God that has no pity by seeing the eminent conclusion of his plan. Only God (Allah) knows their secret names, which are said to keep them distinguishable from him. [See: names]. They are made of God's essence but are not immortal. However when one 'dies' (or returns to him) it is replaced by another with the same psyche.

He recommends that for staying from Eden; 100 of her children die every day but as a compromise Lilith has dominion over infants born of Adam for a certain number of days but be bound by God's name to spare any child bearing an amulet or mark of the triplets. She agrees, the angels leave her & 100 demons born of her die every day, but as a result all children not bearing the mark are under her power for 8 days if they are male, & 20 days if they are female. Alaphar's brief appearance is not mentioned in "The Alphabet of Ben-Shira" where this story was most popularized. In this text, Lilith decides on this compromise herself.

Anak's three sons: Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai (perhaps three subdivisions of the Anakim), were driven out of Qiryat Arba by Caleb.

Anakim (Enim, Anim) - ("Giants" or "Long necked / Tall Kings"). the offspring of those Nephellim called Anak and Enki, born of fallen angels and mortal women, an issue touched on in Genesis 6. The Anakim were so tall that, according to The Zohar, “the Hebrews were like grasshoppers in comparison.” In the latter work, the angels Uzza and Azael are singled out as having begotten children “whom they called Anakim.” The original name of the Anakim was Nefilim (Nephillim). In Ginzberg, the Legends of the Jews I, it is related that the Anakim “ touched the sun with their necks.” This is consonant (consistent?) with the view, often expressed in rabbinic and Islamic writings, that angels reached from Heaven to earth - just as Adam did when he was first formed, and as Israfel did, or does. The Anakim were both the descendants of the Nephellim and related to the Rephaim, Zumim and the Emim peoples.

In David 7:9, the expression is the prophets title and vision of God: “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool; his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.” Dionysius in The Divine names defines the term of Ancient of Days as "both the Eternity and the Time of all things prior to days and eternity and time." The term has also been applied to Israel. William Blake refers to the Ancient of Days as Urizen, the figure of Jehovah in this poet's mystical poems. It is the title of one of his famous drawings. Hymn 519 of the Hymnal of the Protestant Episcopal church opens with "Ancient of Days, who sittest throned in glory; To thee all knees are bent."

Angel (Hebrew, "malakh") -
the word derives from angiras (Sanskrit), a divine spirit; from the Persian angaros, a courier; from the Greek angelos, meaning a messenger. In Arabic the word is malak (a Jewish loan word.) In popular usage an angel denotes, generally, a supernatural being intermediate between God and man (the Greek "daimon" being closer approximation to our notion of angel than angelos). In early Christian and pre-Christian days, the term angel and daimon (or demon) were interchangeable, as in the writings of Paul and John. The Herews drew their idea of angels from the Persians and from the Babylonians during the Captivity. The 2 named angels in the Old Testament, Michael and Gabriel, were in fact lifted from Babylonian mythology. The 3rd named angel, Raphael, appears in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. "This whole doctrine concerning angels" (says Sales in his edition of The Koran, "Preliminary Discourse, p.51)"Mohammed and his disciples borrowed from the Jews, who borrowed the names and offices of these beings from the Persians." While Enoch, in his writings dating back to earliest Christian times and even before, names many angels (and demons), these were ignored in New Testament gospels, although they began to appear in contemporaneous extracanonical works. They had a vogue in Jewish Gnostic, mystic and cabalistic tracts. Angelology came into full flower in the 11th-13th centuries when the names of literally thousands of angels appeared, many of them created through the juggling of letters of the Hebrew alphabet, or by the simple device of adding the suffix "el" to any word which lent itself to such manipulation. An angel, though immaterial, that is, bodiless, is usually depicted as having a body or inhabiting a body, pro tem, and as winged and clothed. If an angel is in the service of the devil, he is a fallen angel or a demon. To Philo, in his "On Dreams," angels were incorporeal intelligences. He held that the rabbis, on the contrary, thought of angels as material beings. In Roman Catholic theology, angels were created in the earliest days of Creation, or even before Creation, tota simul, that is, at one and the same time. In Jewish tradition, angels are "new every morning" and continue to be formed with every breath God takes. In the pseudo-Dionysian scheme with its 9 heavenly choirs, angels as an order rank lowest in the scale of hierarchy, the seraphim ranking highest. The archangels show up 8th in the sequence, despite the fact that the greatest angels are often referred to as archangels. Strictly speaking, when one refers to the named angels in the Bible, it is correct to say there are only 2 or 3. But the following may be considered: Abaddon/Apollyon, mentioned in Revelation as the "angel of the bottomless pit." Wormwood, referred to as a star, but to be understood as an angel. And there is Satan, who in the Old Testament is a great angel, one of the most glorious, certainly not evil and with no hint of his having fallen. He goes by his title of adversary (ha-satan). It is only in Christian and post-Biblical Jewish writings that ha-satan of the Old Testament is turned into an evil spirit. A case for including Rahab among the named angels of the Bible might also be made: Talmud refers to Rahab as "the angel of the sea."

"Angel in the Forest" -
the title of Marguerite Young's chronicle of the Rappites, a German religious sect that established a short-lived community on the Wabash River during the years 1815-1824. the title derives from the angel (Gabriel) whom Father Rapp, cult leader, claimed he saw in the forest - an angel "with the good taste to leave footprints behind" - for these footprints can be seen, to this day, on a stone slab in New Harmony, Indiana.

Angromainyus was God's opposite and opponent from the beginning (in Persian lore). In the Zendavesta, Angromainyus, pregnant with death, leaps from Heaven in the form of a serpent - a form in which he is not infrequently represented. He tries to deceive Zoroaster (Zarathustra) and to cause the latter to rebel against Ahura Mazda (the Persian equivalent of the sovereign power), but fails.

In Revelation 20:1 he "laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years." According to the foregoing, Apollion is a holy (good) angel, servant and messenger of God; but in occult and, generally, in noncanonical writings, he is evil - as in the last century The Biblical Antiquities of Philo and the 3rd-century The Acts of Thomas. The term also applied to the abode of evil spirits (Hell). In Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress Apollion is the devil. Bunyan thus describes him: "clothed with scales like a fish and wings like a dragon, feet like a bear, and out of his belly came fire and smoke." He is so pictured by a 17th-centry artist, the sketch reproduced in an early edition of Pilgrim's Progress. The exegete Volter identifies Apollion with Ahriman, the Persian devil. In Barrett, The Magus, where Apollion is pictured in color he is distinct from Abaddon (also pictured in color). The 2 are denominated "vessels of iniquity" (i.e. fallen angels or demons). Durer did an engraving showing the "Angel with the Key to the Abyss," reproduced on pg. 3.

So named by Gregory the Great in his Moralia on Job, where he says: "Forasmuch then, as mankind is brought to the light of Repentance by the coming of the Redeemer, but the Apostate Angel is not recalled by any hope of pardon," etc. It was Gregory's view that man was created to replace the fallen legions of Satan.

His most notorious Nephillim son was Anak, father of the Anakim, and leader of the Anakites. In Joshua 14:15, he is cited as the "greatest man among the Anakites." He had three possible grandsons listed in the Bible as Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, which were driven out of the land Caleb inherited, as cited in Joshua 15:13-14. Arba's name means "four" but likely came from the word meaning: "to lie with on all fours" or "to make oneself low (as an animal)", and a variant root means: "to lie with" and "to inundate for the sake of improving the soil", both could be associated with his interbreeding with the daughters of men.

Archangel of the covenant - a term applied to Michael in the Coptic Apocalypse of Paul

Archangel ruin’d - Satan is so called by Milton in Paradise Lost I.

Archangels - [See: Heirarchy - Archangels]. The term archangels applies generically to all angels above the grade of (the order of) angels; it also serves to designate a specific rank of angels in the celestial hierarchy. In the pseudo-Dionysian scheme of 9 orders or choirs, the order of archangel is placed 8th - that is, next to the last in rank, immediately above the order of angels. This is a bit confusing, since the greatest angels are referred to as archangels, as in the Old Testament where Daniel calls Michael "one of the chief princes," which is taken to mean one of the archangels. In the New Testament the term archangels occurs only twice: in I Thessalonians and in Jude. In the latter only, however, is Michael specifically designated an archangel. In Revelation 8:2, John refers to the "seven angels who stand before God," and this is commonly interpreted to mean the 7 archangels. The Book of Enoch (Enoch I) names the 7: Uriel, Raguel, Michael, Seraqael, Gabriel, Haniel, Raphael. Later Judaism gives Phanuel as an alternate for Uriel. Other lists in apocrypha and pseudepigrapha give, as variants, such angels as Barachiel, Jehudiel, Sealtiel, Oriphiel, Zadkiel, and Anael (Haniel). The archangels, according to the Testament of Levi, "minister and make propitiation to the Lord for the sins of ignorance and of the righteous." The ruling prince of the order is usually given as Raphael or Michael. The Koran recognizes 4 archangels but names only 2: Gabriel (Jibril), who is the angel of revelation, and Michael, the warrior angel who fights the battle of the faithful. The 2 unnamed angels are Azrael, angel of death; and Israfel, angel of music, who will sound the trumpet (one of 3 or 4 trumpets) on the Day of Judgment. The earliest source for the names of the archangels is traced to Al-Barceloni, a writer of mystic works in the post-Talmudic period, who related them to the planets. In other writings "we meet with the conception of 12 archangels connected with the signs of the zodiac." For the names of the 12 and their zodiacal signs. The cabala cites 10 archangels (actually 9) and places them in the world of Briah (2nd of the 4 created worlds), thus: Methratton, Ratziel Tzaphqiel, Tzadqiel, Khamael, Mikhale, Haniel, Raphael, Gabriel, Methratton. It will be noted the Methrattin i.e. Metatron, appears twice, heading and concluding the list of 10- or rather 9. "The archangels," says Dionysius in his Mystical Theology and the Celestial Hierarchy, "are the messengers bearing divine decrees."

Archangels of the 10 sefiroth - Mathers, The Kabbalah Unveiled, lists the archangels of the Sefiroth as follows: 1. Methattron, for Kether (crown) 2. Ratziel, for Chokmah (wisdom); 3. Tzaphqiel, for Binah (understanding); 4. Tzadqiel, for Chesed (mercy) 5. Khamael, for Geburah (strength or fortitude); 6. Mikhael, for Tiphereth (beauty); 7. Haniel, for Netzach (victory); 8. Raphael, for Hod (splendor); 9. Gabriel, for Yesod (foundation); 10. Methattron or the Shekinah, for Malkuth (kingdom).

Archarzel - an angel invoked in ritual magic by the Master of the Arts

Archer - a governing spirit of Aquarius. Archer shares this post with Ssakmakiel

Archistratege (Arhistratig, Archstrategist) - (“chief of hosts”). When counseling Enoch, God call Michael "my intercessor, my archistratege." The same title is given Michael (Mihail) in the Roumanian text of The Apocalypse of Abraham. In this apocalypse, the tears that Michael, "herald of death," sheds over the coming demise of Abraham, "fall into a basin and turn into precious jewels." The story is found also in Ginzberg, The Legends of the Jews I.

Archons (“rulers”) - angels set over nations and identified or equated with aeons. Shamshiel or Shemuiel is "the great archon, mediator between the prayers of Israel and the princes of the 7th Heaven." In occultism the archons are primordial planetary spirits. In Manicheanism they were the "Sons of Dark who swallowed the bright elements of Primal Man."Scholem uses "archon" interchangeably with "great angel." In Major Trends he writes that "archons and angels storm against the traveler in his ascent (or descent) to the Merkabah." The Papyri Graecae Magicae names 5 of the archons: Uriel, Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Shamuil. In the Ophitic (Gnostic) system, 7 archons are designated: Jaldabaoth, Jao, Sabaoth, Adonaios, Astanphaios, Ailoaios, Oraios. In other lists other angels appear as archons: Katspiel, Erathaol, Domiel, etc.

The name of an angel in the apocryphal Ezra; also in Mathers, The Greater Key of Solomon, the Grand Grimoire, and other tracts of magic, where he is pictured as lion-headed. Cornelius Agrippa says: "Ariel is the name of an angel, sometimes also of a demon, and of a city, whence called Ariopolis, where the idol is worshipped." In Heywood, The Hierarchy of the Blessed Angels, Ariel ranks as one of 7 princes who rule the waters and is "Earth's great Lord." Jewish mystics used Ariel as a poetic name for Jerusalem. In the Bible the name denotes, variously, a man, a city and an altar. In occult writings Ariel is the "3rd archon of the winds." Mention is also made of Ariel as an angel who assists Raphael in the cure of disease. In the Coptic Pistis Sophia, Ariel is in charge of punishment in the lower world, corresponding with Ur of the Mandaeans. In The Testament of Solomon, he controls demons. In Gnostic lore he is a ruler of winds and equated with Ialdabaoth as an older name for this god. In practical cabala he is regarded as originally of the order of virtues. According to John Dee, astrologer royal in Queen Elizabeth's day, Ariel is a conglomerate of Anael and Uriel. In The Tempest, Shakespeare casts Ariel as a sprite. To Miltonhe is a rebel angel, overcome by the seraph Abdiel in the first day of fighting in Heaven. The poet Shelley referred to himself as Ariel, and AndreMaurois is the author of a life of Shelley called Ariel. Sayce sees a connection between Ariel and the arelim (erelim), the valiant ones spoken of in Isaiah 33:7, an order of angels equated with the order of thrones.

The cabala includes him among the 10 evil sefiroth.

Asmodeus - (“creature of judgment”). the name is derived from ashma daeva (see Asmoday, Chammaday). Asmodeus is a Persian rather than a Jewish devil; however, incorporated into Jewish lore, he is there regarded as an evil spirit. According to Forlong, Encyclopedia of Religions, Asmodeus is "the talmudic Ashmedai, a demon borrowed from the Zend Aeshmadeva," a "raging fiend". It was Ashmadai (Ashmedai), says Forlong, who made Noah drunk, and who, in Tobit, slew the 7 bridegrooms of the young Sarah, and who, overcome by the angel Raphael, was finally "banished to upper Egypt." In demonology, Asmodeus in Hell is controller of all gaming houses. Wierus the demonographer says Asmodeu must be invoked only when the invocant is bareheaded, otherwise the demon will trick him. Barrett, The Magus II, pictures Asmodeus in color as one of the "Vessels of Wrath." In Le Sage's romance The Devil on Tow Sticks Asmodeus is the main character. In James Branch Cabell's The Devil's Own Dear Son, Asmodeus is the son of Adam's first wife Lilith by Samael. However, in The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage, we find this report: "Some rabbis say that Asmodeus was the child of the incest of Tubal-Cain and his sister Naamah; others say he was the demon of impurity." Jewish lore charges Asmodeus with being the father-in-law of the demon Bar Shalmon. In Solomonic legends, Asmodeus also goes by the name of Saturn, Marcolf or Morolf. He is credited with being the inventor of carousels, music, dancing, drama, "and all the new French fashions."

Asradel - (Asderel)

Asrael - an angel in a 4-act opera of that name composed by Alberto Franchetti, with libretto by Fontana.

He is also lord of the 3rd gate "leading to the aeon of the archons" (according to Origen in Contra Celsum, who claims the name derives from the art of magic). Astanphaeus is likewise declared to be one of the 7 sons of Sydik (Melchisedec). On the other hand, the name is said to be a variant form of Satan. In Phoenician theogony, Astanphaeus is a primordial power. C.W. King, The Gnostics and Their Remains, declares Astanphaeus to be "the Jewish angel of the planet Mercury" and of Magian origin. King reproduces a Gnostic gem with the name of Astanphaeus inscribed on it.

Astaribo - a name for Lilith in medieval magic

Astaroth (Asteroth) - once a seraph, Astaroth is now, according to Waite, The Lemegeton, a great duke in the infernal regions.

"In the Greek language," says Barrett in The Magus I, "Astaroth is called Diabolus." When Astaroth is invoked, he manifests as "a beautiful angel astride a dragon and carrying a viper in his right hand." His sigil is shown in Waite, The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. Before Astaroth fell, he was (declares the Admirable History of the Possession and Conversion of a Penitent Woman) a prince of the order of thrones. Spence, An Encyclopaedia of Occultism, maintains, to the contrary that he belonged to the order of seraphim. Voltaire finds that Astaroth was an ancient god of Syria. According to the Grimorium Verum, Astaroth has set up residence in America. "In the English tradition," says De Plancy, Astaroth was "one of the 7 princes of Hell who visited Faust."

Astarte (Ashteroth, Ashtoreth, Ishtar, Venus) - chief female deity of the ancient Phoenicians, Syrians, Carthaginians. Astarte was a Syrian moon goddess of fertility. As Ashteroth she was worshipped by the Jews in times when idolatry was prevalent in Palastine: "Ashtoreth, the abomination of the Zidonians", the Zidonians being thee Phoenicians. Jeremiah called Ashtoreth the "queen of heaven." The Greeks borrowed their Aphrodite from Astarte. Finally, Astarte shows up, in occult lore, as the demon for the month of April. In Paradise Lost, Astarte is a fallen angel, equated with Astoreth. Equated also with both Ariel and Astartiel.

Azael, it is reported, is chained in a desert where he will remain until the day of judgment. In Idrash Petirat Mosheh, Azael is mentioned as one of 2 angels (the other being Ouza) who came down from Heaven and was corrupted. Cornelius Agrippa, in his Occult Philosophy, lists 4 evil angels as the opposites of the 4 holy rulers of the elements; among the evil ones Azael is included. Schwab in his Vocabulaire de l'Angelologie identifies Shamhazai (Semyaza) with Azael (Aziel), guardian of hidden treasures.

Azariel - in Talmud, Azariel is the angel governing the water of the earth. In occult lore he is listed among the 28 angels governing the 28 mansions of the moon.

Azazel(Azael, Hazazel) - (“God strengthens”). In Enoch I, Azazel is one of the chiefs of the 200 fallen angels (Revelation speaks of one-third of the heavenly host being involved in the fall). Azazel "taught men to fasion swords and shields" while women learned from him "finery and the art of beautifying the eyelids." He is the scapegoat in rabbinic literature, Targum, and in Leviticus 16:8, although in the latter he is not actually named. In The Zohar the rider on the serpent is symbolized by "the evil Azazel." Here he is said to be chief of the order of bene elim (otherwise ischim, lower angels, "men spirits"). Irenaeus calls Azazel "that fallen and yet mighty angel." In The Apocalypse of Abraham he is "lord of hell, seducer of mankind," and here his aspect, when revealed in its true form, shows him to be a demon with 7 serpentheads, 14 faces, and 12 wings. Jewish legend speaks of Azazel as the angel who refused to bow down before Adam (in the Koran the angel is Eblis or Iblis) when the 1st human was presented to God to the assembled hierarchs in Heaven. For such refusal, Azazel was thenceforth dubbed "the accursed Satan." According to the legend in Islamic lore, when God commanded the angels to worship Adam, Azazel refused, contending "Why should a son of fire (i.e. an angel) fall down before a son of clay (i.e. a mortal)?" whereupon God cast Azael out of Heaven and changed his name to Eblis. Milton in Paradise Lost I 534 describes Azazel as "a cherub tall," but also as a fallen angel and Satan's standard bearer. Originally, according to Maurice Bouisson in Magic; Its History and Principal Rites, Azazel was an ancient Semitic god of the flocks who was later degraded to the level of a demon. Bamberger in Fallen Angels inclines to the notion that the first star which fell (star here having the meaning of angel) was Azazel.

Azaziel - another name for the seraph Semyaza. In Byron's poem "Heaven and Earth, a Mystery" the legend is told of a pious maiden named Anah, granddaughter of Cain, who tempts Azaziel to reveal to her the Explicit Name. In the poem, Azaziel carries Anah off, at the time of the flood, to a planet other than the earth.

Azbogah (Azbuga YHWH)

Azbuga YHWH - (“strength”). one of the 8 great angel princes of the throne of judgment and of a rank superior to that of Metatron. "Originally," says Gershom Scholem, "Asbogah was a secret name of God in his highest sphere." His chief duty, it appears, was to clothe with righteousness the new arrivals in Heaven - those, that is, who were deemed worthy. A late Hebrew charm contains Asbogah's name as one to be invoked for the "healing of all illness and all hurt and all evil spirit."

Azdai -
an angel in Mandaean lore.

Azer - angel of elemental fire; also the name of Zoroaster’s father.

an angel in Syriac incantation rites. In the Book of Protection, Aziziel is grouped with Michael, Harshiel, Prukiel, and other “spellbinding angels.”

Azkariel - a corruption of Ak(h)raziel.

Azkeel - one of the leaders of the 200 fallen Grigori, in the Enoch listings, who descended from heaven to cohabit with the daughters of men, an incident touched on in Genesis 6.

Azliel X - an invocation angel, one of 14; also one of the ineffable names of God.

Azrael (Azrail, Ashriel, Azriel, Azaril) - (“whom God helps”). -in Hebrew and Islamic lore, the angel of death, stationed in the 3rd heaven. To the Moslems, Azrael is another form of Raphael. In their tradition, he has "70,000 feet and 4,000 wings, while his body is provided with as many eyes and tongues as there are men in the world." In Arabic tradition, Azrael is "forever writing in a large book and forever erasing what he writes; what he writes is the birth of a man, what he erases is the name of the man at death." When Michael, Gabriel, and Israfel failed to provide 7 handfuls of earth for the creation of Adam, the 4th angel on this mission, Azrael, succeeded; and because of this feat he was appointed to separate body from soul. (Cf. Murdad, the angelus mortis in ancient Persian lore.) Oriental legend has it that Azrael accomplishes his mission (i.e. bringing death first and separation afterward) by holding an apple from the Tree of Life to the nostril of the dying person. In Jewish mysticism, Azrael is the embodiment of evil. In The Book of Protection he is one of 3 holy angels (the other 2 being Gabriel and Michael) invoked in Syriac charms. He is the angel of death in Longfellow's poem "The Spanish Jew's Tale" and, in the popular edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, he is pictorially represented with King Solomon entertaining a "rajah of Hindostan."

Azra’il - in Arabic lore, a guardian angel invoked in rites of exorcism.

Azriel - a chief angel supervisor referred to as “Azriel the Ancient,” sometimes as “Mahniel” (meaning mighty camp), as in The Zohar. Here he commands 60 myriads of legions of spirits and is stationed on the northern side of Heaven, where he receives prayers. In Ozar Midrashim I, Azriel is one of the chief angels of destruction. His name is found inscribed on oriental charms (kamea) for warding off evil.

Azur (Azar)

Azza (Shem-yaza) - (“the strong”). a fallen angel who is, according to rabbinic tradition, suspended between Heaven and earth (along with Azzael) as punishment for having had carnal knowledge of mortal women. Azza (Shemyaza, meaning “the name Azza”) is said to be constantly falling, with one eye shut, the other open, so that he can see his plight and suffer the more. There is another explanation for Azza’s expulsion from Heaven: it is that he objected to the high rank given Enoch when the latter was transformed from a mortal into the angel Metatron (see Iblis or Eblis). In Solomonic lore the story is that Azza was the angel who revealed to the Jewish king the heavenly arcane, thus making Solomon the wisest man on earth. In Talmud, the sedim (Assyrian guardian spirits) are said to have been “begotten by Azza and Azael on the body of the evil Nammah, daughter of Lamech, before the Flood.” In his introduction to 3 Enoch, Odeberg remarks that, of the 2 groups of angels headed by Metatron, one group (the angels of justice) was under the rulership of Azza. At that time, evidently, Azza was not yet fallen.

Azzael (Azza, Assiel, Azazel, Azzazel) - While Azza and Azzael, in some sources, are referred to as 2 distinct, separate angels, they seem to be one and the same in other sources. Variant spellings are Assiel, Azazel, Azzazel, etc. in the early part of 3 Enoch, Azzael is represented as one of 3 ministering angels (Uzza and Azza being the other 2), inhabitants of the 7th Heaven; later, however, he is represented as a fallen angel and ranked with Azza as one of the maskim. For cohabiting with the daughters of men, he was punished (with Uzza) by having his nose pierced. He taught witchcraft, by the art of which man can cause (or did cause at one time) the sun, moon and stars to descend from the sky, so as to make them closer objects of worship.
