Gematria is numerology of the Hebrew language and Hebrew alphabet, and is used by its proponents to derive meaning or relative relationship.

Several forms can be identified: the "revealed" form and the "mystical” form. The word itself comes from the Greek word “geometry” and the concept is the same as the Greek isopsephy and the Islamic Hisab al-Jumal.

Although Hebrew Gematria is the best known now, Greek Gematria predates it by many centuries. There is also a Gematria of Latin-script languages, dating from the early Middle Ages, and very possibly back into Roman times, too.
