The sum of all rows is  34!
The sum of all columns is 34!
The sum of all corners is  34!
Move the fields one step clockwise and it is still 34!
Move the fields another step and it is still 34!
The sum of the fields in the center is 34!
5 + 9 + 8 + 12 = 34
3 + 2 + 15 + 14 = 34
The same is true for the diag on a l s . . .
And so on : 34!
Dürer created this square in 1514.  “D“ for Dürer is the 4th letter  of the alphabet and “A“ for Albrecht is the 1st!
Genius! . . . He was very proud for creating this magic square – and he should be!
