7 of the occult sciences in the twelfth century. The Spanish schools in Toledo and Barcelona translated works on astronomy, astrology, geomancy, and sympathetic magic. If Flint’s thesis is correct, however, this first renewal of occult sciences merely brought out what was already festering under the surface. What changes at this point, according to Flint, is the complicity of the Catholic Church (1990: 12). In the Middle Ages, most theologians believed in the occult sciences, but felt that magic was evil.

Medieval scholasticism taught that individuals were subject to Divine law. Humankind’s ability to influence its destiny was reduced to choosing a good or evil path. Choosing to obey natural law and accepting one’s station in life were cornerstones of the medieval ethic. Divine will, never the stars, determined the outcome either choice would have. Furthermore, a properly contrite and repentant sinner could always see the error of his ways and choose the course of salvation. The occult arts and sciences threaten the Church in two key respects.

Often found in Latin as “homo sapiens dominabitur astris,” the proverb illustrates the power of humankind to assert its will over the natural world, a position that cannot possibly conflict with Church doctrine (Tester 176–177; Coopland 175–177). Once the link between magic and natural science was forged, Renaissance theologians were able to drive the demons out of magic or simply co-opt them. The Neoplatonists, such as Ficino, used the Greek spelling daemon to indicate a philosophically neutral use of the term.
