Magician

The tarot card Magician or Magus has also been historically known as, among other things, the Juggler or il Bagattino. There is a lesser known character in the commedia named Bagatino, who is a zanni and therefore related to Arlecchino and others. I’ve read Bagatino described as being similar to il Dottore in that he knows everything but can't figure anything out. He's a quick talker, maybe even a confidence man; but, probably all his plans are slightly insane. He's a trickster, a twister, a wicked go-getter. He's got the characteristics of a pig and a cat and a bird. The masks I've seen are closer to Arlecchino than il Dottore; a full half-mask like Arlecchino, but with a furrowed forehead similar to the Doctor.

Here you will find a bunch of assorted documents that I've put together at one time or another in relation to my interest in esoteric studies, whether that's more specifically about philosophy, spirituality, magick, culture or something else entirely.
