Chaldean Number

Chaldean Gematria Numerology (to give the full name) is the oldest known numerology system with its origins in ancient Babylon. Between the 9th and 6th centuries BCE the southern part of Babylonia was occupied by the Chaldeans who were well known for their contributions to astronomy, mathematics and the occult, particularly in the field of astrology and numerology. They had a highly developed culture which has left us with a legacy of sacred scripts and mythology. In the 19th century these attracted the attention of occult circles due to the connections with astral elements and spirituality.
