Everything is interconnected.
So, this quote from Agrippa: “In like manner Moses, the lawgiver and ruler of the Hebrews, being skilled in the Magic of the Egyptians, is said by Josephus to have made rings of love and oblivion. ”
…led me to look up the history of the word “oblivion” in the OED…
“1. a.1.a The state or fact of forgetting or having forgotten; forgetfulness.
1390 Gower Conf. II. 23 Which Ring bar of Oblivion The name.”
Which, if it’s not clear, is Gower’s Confessio Amantis– which has that amazing section on the Behenian stars and their magical usages.
