Description

Essential Medieval Astrology: Horary Series, Vol. III - The great medieval compendium of Persian and Arabic masters

The Book of the Nine Judges is the largest traditional compilation of horary astrology, drawn from nine Persian and Arabic astrologers. Translated from Arabic sources chiefly by the 12th-Century Latin translator Hugo of Santalla, it achieved legendary status but has never before been translated into any modern language. It includes material by Masha’allah, ‘Umar al-Tabari, Abu Ma’shar, Sahl bin Bishr, al-Kindi, Abu ‘Ali al-Khayyat, “Dorotheus,” “Aristotle,” and Jirjis.

Beginning with a primer on questions by Benjamin Dykes, Judges opens with introductions by Masha’allah, ‘Umar, and Sahl on choosing significators and victors, and identifying modes of perfection. Well-known and lesser-known manuals on questions are then collated by house topic, ranging from matters of wealth, marriage, war, theft, positions of honor and rulership, travel, and horse racing. Notable mundane sections offer methods of predicting weather and prices.

Throughout, Benjamin Dykes provides numerous comments, helpful footnotes, and diagrams. Appendices include Sahl’s Fifty Judgments, advice on questions from Bonatti’s Book of Astronomy, and helpful instructions from Masha’allah’s On Reception. Containing a study guide for astrological basics, a reference table of questions, and the most extensive glossary of traditional astrological terms to date, The Book of the Nine Judges is essential for traditional astrologers.

734 pages The Book of the Nine Judges is a famous medieval compendium of traditional horary astrology, compiled from Abu Ma'shar, Masha'allah, Sahl bin Bishr, 'Umar al-Tabari, al-Kindi, Abu 'Ali al-Khayyat, Dorotheus, Aristotle, and Jirjis. It is the largest known compendium of these sources on answering horary questions, and in many cases is the first modern translation of these Latin/Arabic authors. Complete with an introduction to questions by the translator, with numerous diagrams, tables, and an extensive glossary, it is essential for traditional astrologers.
