  • Magonia è un immaginario regno celeste menzionato da un trattato che aveva lo scopo di combattere le superstizioni e la magia meteorologica scritto nell'815 dal vescovo Agobardo di Lione: Contra insulsam vulgi opinionem de grandine et tonitruis .Era il luogo di origine di un popolo di pirati dei cieli (i Magonesi) che viaggiavano su "navi nuvola" e usavano la magia meteorologica per creare tempeste di cui si servivano per rubare il raccolto dei campi. Il trattato di magia di Agobardo in cui si parla di Magonia ci è pervenuto attraverso un unico manoscritto trovato a Lione nel 1605 e in seguito ripubblicato in diverse edizioni. La descrizione che Agobardo fa dei Magoniani ha ispirato numerosi ufologi, che hanno voluto vedere nel racconto di Agobardo un resoconto di antichi avvistamenti di velivoli alieni. Il periodico britannico di ufologia Magonia prende il nome dal luogo immaginario descritto da Agobardo. (it)

dbp:text
  • But we have seen and heard of many people overcome with so much foolishness, made crazy by so much stupidity, that they believe and say that there is a certain region, which is called Magonia, from which ships come in the clouds. In these ships the crops that fell because of hail and were lost in storms are carried back into that region; evidently these aerial sailors make a payment to the storm-makers, and take the grain and other crops. Among those so blinded with profound stupidity that they believe these things could happen we have seen many people in a kind of meeting, exhibiting four captives, three men and one woman, as if they had fallen from these very ships. As I have said, they exhibited these four, who had been chained up for some days, with such a meeting finally assembling in our presence, as if these captives ought to be stoned. But when truth had prevailed, however, after much argument, the people who had exhibited the captives, in accordance with the prophecy "were confounded … as the thief is confounded when he is taken.
