AAH - Order of the planets...?
If the AAH is correct, it would appear that the order of the planets in the
VMS is surprisingly modern (and, needless to say, heliocentric):-
Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn
Whether that's cosmologically based or cryptographically based is another
question entirely. :-/
By way of reference, the Chaldean order of the planets (thought to be the
order of the heavenly spheres, and which was used to form the "planetary
days of the week") was:
Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon
Trithemius' order (in De Septum Secundeis) was:
Saturn, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Moon, Sun
Does anybody know any other (medieval or earlier) planetary-order
traditions by way of comparison?
