Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim (September 15, 1486 – February 18, 1535) was a German magician, theologian, Kabbalist, astrologer, and alchemist.

In her writings Mme. Blavatsky refers the student to Agrippa's writings for further information in matters of Kabbalah. According to her, Agrippa was taught by his friend and instructor Trithemius, an abbot of the Spanheim Benedictines and "a very learned Kabbalist and adept in the Secret Sciences".[1]
