Comte de Gabalis , at sacred-texts.com
EEEA Jewish physician who lived in the ninth century. He was greatly in favour with the Emperor Charles the Bald, whose medical attendant he had been. He is said, further more, to have been so great a wizard that once in the presence of the court he ate a whole load of hay, together with the driver and the horses; that at other times he flew around in the air and played other such juggling tricks.
