The Term “Magic”
The term “magic” comes from the Old French word “magique”. Also there was the Old Persian priests who were called magosh in ancient times.
Magic is not about the devil
Although from yesteryears, magicians had been associated with the occult, in reality, magicians were illusionists who performed acts of illusion. They were not interested in doing things related to witchcraft.
Eighteenth-Century Brought respect for Magicians
Magic acts were always a part of fairs and were never taken seriously as an art form in the early days. It was only in the early 18th century when magic became a respectable profession. Magicians started getting recognition as performers, and were invited to perform by rich private patrons for high-profile parties, where people respected their talent. Today, you can be just like those from the past, and can book JASON PALTER top magician in Houston and add an incredible flair and energy to your party.
Specific magician appearance
The specific magician appearance or “look” which is the fancy attire many see as a stereotype image, was first started by Alexander Hermann (also known as Hermann the Great) in the late 1800’s. He was a French magician and always carried a top hat, wore a tailcoat, and also had a goatee.
Magic organizations and their existence
Many laypeople wonder if there is such a thing as an organization of magicians. There are many around the world, such as The Society of American Magicians, which is the oldest organization of magicians, and was once headed by the great Houdini.

The Secrets of Magic Tricks
The secrets of magic tricks have also been considered sacred by magicians, and never shared in an open forum. Magicians always kept their secrets concealed. However in 1584, Reginald Scot’s “Discoverie of Witchcraft” was published; this book talked about magic tricks and their secrets. Even today, you cannot find a lot of books on the revelation of magic tricks. However, many magic tricks secrets are available online.
There were times when magic tricks were used by Catholic schools to bring back the kids to the school. For instance, in the 19th century, an Italian priest, St. Don Bosco, used magical tricks in Turin to encourage children to attend church and school. This was the birth of what is known is as gospel magic.
