Gematria is an ancient numerical system used to assign numerical values to words and phrases. It originated in the Jewish tradition and has been used in various forms throughout the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa. Gematria is based on the idea that words have a hidden meaning which can be revealed through numerical values assigned to each letter of a word or phrase. Pythagorean English Gematria is based on a method called “Reduction.” All numbers are reduced to single digits. Letters J-Z have double digit values and need to be reduced. For example, Z is 26 according to the simple English Gematria chart above. According to Pythagorean Gematria, Z will be equal to 8 (2+6) this is the sum of its digits.
