Magus

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

An adept, or master magician. In ancient Persia the Magi (plural of Magus) were the wise men of the priesthood. In many secret magical societies, such as the Golden Dawn, the title is given on achieving the highest degree of advancement. In Wicca, it is a gratuitous title given to a High Priest when his High Priestess becomes a Witch Queen, or "Queen of the Sabbat."
