Thaumaturgy is the practice or study of magical and supernatural effects.[1] The term is sometimes used to describe a magical effect or object affected by magic, such as a construct or metamagical effect.[2][3]

On Golarion

Sleepless detectives are skilled in forensic thaumaturgy, or the ability to sense magical effects that have recently expired.[4]

One of the theoretical bases of Shory flying city magic, also known as Aeromantic Infadibulum, is the Azlanti practice of electro-thaumaturgy.[5]

Extremely powerful occultists who take on the mythic path of the archmage are often called thaumaturges.[6]
