  • 1. Albrecht Dürer And his magic square
  • 2. On the wall to the right hangs the magic square Dürer created.
  • 3. It looks like this. And what is the magic? It is the number 34! This number is the sum of the various fields within the magic square.
  • 4. The sum of all rows is 34!
  • 5. The sum of all columns is 34!
  • 6. The sum of all corners is 34!
  • 7. Move the fields one step clockwise and it is still 34!
  • 8. Move the fields another step and it is still 34!
  • 9. The sum of the fields in the center is 34!
  • 10. 5 + 9 + 8 + 12 = 34
  • 11. 3 + 2 + 15 + 14 = 34
  • 12. The same is true for the diag on a l s . . .
  • 13. And so on : 34!
  • 14. Dürer created this square in 1514. “D“ for Dürer is the 4th letter of the alphabet and “A“ for Albrecht is the 1st!
  • 15. Genius! . . . He was very proud for creating this magic square – and he should be!
