DR JAMES A. REEDS AT&T, New Jersey, U. S. A.

"RENAISSANCE CRYPTOGRAPHY AND JOHANNES TRITHEMIUS"

During the 16th century cryptography became fashionable, the
subject of many books by such authors as Trithemius, Cardano,
della Porta, de Vigenere, and in the following century, Wilkins,
Kircher, and Schott. These authors (who were not themselves
cryptographic practitioners) introduced a wealth of new cryptographic
techniques which did not become fully assimilated into practice until
the 18th and 19th centuries. What were their motives? For the post
1550 authors, a shared interest in "magia naturalis" can explain the
use of cryptography as an illustrative example, but this explanation
has not been taken as covering Trithemius's motives for writing
cryptography books in 1500 and 1508. Instead, following D. P.
Walker and F. Yates, it has been popular in our century to connect
Trithemius's cryptography with demonic magic. Recent work has,
however, exposed the evidence for this connection as largely illusory.
