the ancient cabalistic alphabetical code
(In a proper English translation, you can't omit the word "alfabetico," or replace it with "symbolic"!)
This phrase is a reference to the practice (based in the Kabbalah, as noted above) of assigning numbers to each letter of the alphabet and inferring meanings from the results of various manipulations (usually addition) of the numbers.
Incidentally, if this type of numerology is applied to the full name of the Roman emperor Nero, the result is "666" -- the so-called "number of the Beast."
