The Chief Princes of the Altitudes ( Choras) the Four Cardinal Points


According to the Ars Almadel Part IV of the Lemegeton "By this art Solomon attained great wisdom
from the Chief Angels that govern the four Altitudes of the World: for you must observe that
there are four Altitudes which represent the four Corners of the West, East, North and South. [See paragraph two]:

According to Rowe, "The four Altitudes of the Almadel are not exactly cognate with the four directions,
or with the Elements. Rather they seem to be representatives of the equinox and solstice points, viewed as the anchor points of the zodiac and the seasons. They are called “corners”, in much the same way that the horizon and vertical points of an astrological chart are called “angles”. Their colors as well appear seasonal rather than elemental; white the pure unsullied freshness of the spring breeze, the red heat of summer, the green of mature plants invigorated by the fall rains, and the darkness of mid winter"
