Abstract: Argues that the received account of Ficino's magic, that it is a gentle, natural or spiritus-based magic, are inadequate and that in some little-read passages of his Platonic Theology Ficino revealed his belief in the possibility of a higher and more powerful "angelic" magic based in the rational soul.
