Magical Mystical Theban Jewelry – The Witch’s Alphabet
Theban is an alphabet used today primarily by witches and Wiccans. Their mythical and sacred quotes and sayings are carefully inscribed on beautiful pieces of jewelry to be worn as talisman, amulets or reaffirmation of a person’s faith.
The Theban alphabet, also known as the ‘Witch’s Alphabet’, is widely used today to hide magical writings such as the contents of a Book of Shadows from prying eyes. This alphabet serves to disguise or put into cipher the meaning of a text and to give it a mystical quality.
The origins of the Theban alphabet are not exactly known. Theban is not a runic alphabet but is known as the Runes of Honorius or the Honorian Alphabet after the legendary magus. It emerged during the European medieval period when Cabbalistic studies were foremost in the practices of magicians often being referred to as “Witch Writing” or “Witches’ Runes”.
The Theban alphabet bears little resemblance to other alphabets. The parent alphabet is Latin, there is a one-to-one correspondence between letters of the Theban and Latin alphabets with the exception of the letters j and u. These letters are represented by the letters for i and v. The script is also characterized by its left to right writing in a horizontal line.
The Theban alphabet is also known as the Theban Script or Angelic Script. It is one of several different scripts used to communicate with angels. When someone wants to petition an angel for help, it’s more powerful if written with this script.
Many Pagans, Witches, and Wiccans use the Theban alphabet to encode their writings in their Books of Shadows or spell books. Many Witches use the alphabet today, primarily for talismanic inscriptions and magickal spells and works. The letters can be carved on stone or wood as an amulet, or on candles for candle spells.
Keep the magic close to you. Wear with pride, jewelry with inscriptions in Theban.
