Beschreibung

First published in 1924, this classic four-volume work contains various Greek and Latin writings of religious or philosophic teachings ascribed to Hermes Trismegistus, with Walter Scott's extensive notes, commentary, and addenda. It is said that these teachings are records of private, intimate talks between a teacher and one or two of his disciples. The setting was in Egypt under the Roman Empire, among men who had received some instruction in Greek philosophy, and especially the Platonism of the period, but were not content with merely accepting and repeating the dogmas of the orthodox philosophic religion that would better satisfy their needs. Included here are alchemical writings in Greek and Latin about the "Hermetica," as well as addenda and indices compiled after Scott's death. Volumes I, II, and III of "Hermetica," which contain Scott's translation, his notes on the "Corpus Hermeticum," and his commentary on "Asclepius" and the Hermetic excerpts of Stobaeus, are also published by Shambhala.
