The basics of Roman magic

The Romans believed that each aspect of nature had its own spirit or divinity, called "n'Amina." The practice of magic consisted of entering into contact with these supernatural forces to obtain their assistance or influence the course of events.

Spirituality and religion played a major role in the use of Roman magic. People used spells and incantations to invoke the gods and trigger inexplicable phenomena.

Many different forms of magic existed in Rome, including religious rites, astrology, alchemy, and even some complex mathematical formulas used by diviners to practice their occult arts.


What type of wizard practiced Roman magic?

The Ancient Romans turned to “augurs” and “haruspices” to obtain predictions and make important decisions. These experts used different tools, notably the sacral bones called “oculus”.

These individuals renowned for mastering the occult arts were highly respected by the local population during the time of ancient Rome. They were frequently consulted by political and military leaders in order to interpret their divine signals which could be an infallible source of guidance during the decision-making process.

Augurs or haruspices used various means to interpret divine signals, the best known of which is undoubtedly the use of sacred knucklebones called “oculus”. These objects then enjoyed a great reputation, because they offered a reliable means of communicating with God and therefore, having access to his infinite knowledge on the unexpected future in political or military matters.

Written/historical traces of Roman magic

The magical practices of the Romans are well documented thanks to the ancient works of S'élire and Pliny the Elder. In "De Medicinal" and "Naturalisé Historia" there is a wealth of information on the spells, potions and rituals used at that time.

Therefore, we can learn a lot from these historical sources to better understand their uses of the ancient Roman magi.


Trivia, deity of Roman magic

Trivial, the Roman goddess of magic, was considered the protector of sorcerers and practitioners of the occult. She is often represented with a staff or wand symbolizing her powers over occult forces.

In ancient mythology, Trivial played an important role in the world of divinatory arts. Sorcerers and magicians looked to her for protection and assistance when invoking supernatural spirits.

The main symbol associated with Trivial is his staff or magic wand which represents his power over invisible spiritual forces. This attribute was believed to give him absolute control over all things related to the occult arts.


Symbol #1: SPQR

The acronym "SP QR" is known throughout the world to symbolize Rome. This mark was often used in religious and mystical ceremonies, where the gods were invoked for divine protection.

These rituals required sacred inscriptions which generally included the symbol SPQR: Roman Populist Senates, meaning: “The Senate and the Roman population”.

Thus, this symbol perfectly reflects the importance of religion in the ancient city of Rome.

Symbol #2: The she-wolf

The she-wolf has always had a strong meaning in Roman culture. It is associated with the founding myth of Rome, representing Romulus and Remus being fed by a wolf. The she-wolf also symbolized access to secret knowledge of the invisible world.

This wild animal fascinated the ancient Romans who believed it had supernatural wisdom and was capable of guiding souls towards their destiny. In Roman magic, it is considered a powerful protective talisman against evil and an inexhaustible source of spiritual power for those who have faith in its ancestral mystery.

People have long sought signs and omens from the remarkable behavior of the she-wolf in order to anticipate the future or find answers to difficult questions they asked about their daily lives.

Wild animals such as this one are often considered to carry magical knowledge inaccessible to ordinary humans, which perhaps explains why they have so captured our imagination!

Divination in Roman magic

Divination in Roman magic

Soothsayers were essential to Roman magic. They used various divinatory practices, such as haruspice and augury, to predict the future. These methods made it possible to communicate with the gods.

Haruspice consisted of interpreting the entrails of sacrificed animals. The augury technique involved observing the flight and song of birds.

Such a form of divination was widespread among the ancient Romans who sought to receive a direct message from the gods about their near or more distant future. The diviners had great influence and were considered reliable oracles capable of interpreting these celestial signs so that the people could determine their destiny according to what was revealed to humans by their respective tutelary gods.


Potions, spells and natural remedies

Roman practitioners of magic used potions, spells and natural remedies to cure physical and psychological ailments. Medicinal plants were an integral part of these practices, as they were believed to contain the healing power of the gods.

This alternative form of treatment has attracted interest over the centuries, particularly to support a variety of conditions. Herbalists have used their knowledge of the natural therapeutic properties of plants to develop a vast catalog of options for patients suffering from a variety of disorders.

Herbal medicine is one of the areas that still benefits from the greatest number of users today. Modern scientific research confirms that certain active substances found in certain herbal remedies can indeed provide effective relief to people suffering from various physical or mental problems.
