This article examines the attention given by Cornelius Agrippa and Giordano Bruno to mirabilibus mundi, a late scholastic text, probably written in the thirteenth century. Its focus is Agrippa’s attitude expressed in De occulta philosophia, towards the secrets of nature examined by De mirabilibus sources, such as Liber aneguemis. In addition, the articles discusses how Giordano Bruno in the De magia mathematica attempts to explain the causal mechanisms of different types of ectraordinay proprietes, first with an Hermetic book, Alexander De septem herbis, then with is a synthesis the Avicennian thesis on the transitive imagination and Al-kindi’ De radiis astrological theories. Finally, the work shows how Agrippa and Bruno tried to resolve the problem of “quid sit magia” using De mirabilibus mundi sources.
