Miracles

Heron of Alexandria (10-70AD) was an ancient Greek engineer employed by temple priests to invent things that could be used in temple magic. His hydraulic device shown below was used during sacrifices or at other pivotal moments when the Gods needed to make an appearance. When an altar fire was lit, the hydraulic system would make the temple doors open, usually timed for when the sacrifice was complete. These and similar types of hydraulic systems were also used to make statues or automatons move or weep blood.
