Used to mock the Christian Messiah Jesus (q.v.) Christ as he was crucified on the cross of galgatha (called Calvary). Secondly said to be a Latin notarikon, "Igne Naturae Renovatur Integra," meaning "Nature by fire is renewed in its integrity" by the Alchemists of the Rennesaince. Medieval alchemists also used INRI as a Latin notarikon, "Inge Nitrum Raris Inventium," meaning, "Shining (or glittering) is rarely found in fire." Finally, INRI is said to be a secret Notarikon of the Jesuit Order of Catholicism from the Latin "Iusticum Necare Regis Impium," meaning, "It is just to kill an impious king."
INVOCATION:To invoke (q.v.). A general incantation or prayer to invoke a deity or other entity.

3) The calling of spirits into an object, such as a crystal, or into a Human Being. Mediums and channelers invoke spirits. See Channeling. It is done by a magician to obtain intimate communication with a spirit or to assume a portion of the spirit's knowledge, skill, ability, or powers.
