According to the Sixth and Seventh Book of Moses each planet
has Seven Heights and Seven Angels. This is indicated by
the statement :
" King Solomon teaches a hidden Almadel [Salomons Almadel
Art - ARS ALMADEL SALOMONIS]
or a Geometrical figure bearing upon the twelve signs of
heaven [the astroloical signs of the zodiac], which he calls
heights, and gives to each height seven or eight names of
princes. There are also many other methods for seeking after
the powers of heaven in the twelve signs, which, for good
reasons, must not be made known, because they are not
mentioned in the Holy Scriptures and were kept secret."
The heights are recorded as:
1. Samaym. 2. Raaquin. 3. Taaquin.
4. Machonon. 5. Mathey. 6. Sebul. 7. Arabat.
Of the operations of these, and their angels, office, order,
number and measure, an account may be found in a work by
Rasiel, [ Raziel? ] which constitutes the Sixth Book Physicum
Salomonis and Elementia Magica Petri de Alano, page 574.
