Etymology[edit | edit source]

A sage in classical philosophy is someone who has attained the wisdom which a philosopher seeks.

In Latin, Magi is plural of Magus, which means "wizard". Magi is also a term used since at least the 4th century BC to denote followers of Zoroaster, or rather, followers of what the Hellenistic world associated Zoroaster with, which was—in the main—the ability to read the stars, and manipulate the fate that the stars foretold.
