The legendary sage-god Hermes Trismegistus (Greek for thrice-greatest Hermes) - a combination of the Egyptian Thoth and the Greek Hermes - was venerated in the ancient world. Re-discovered during the Renaissance, the Greco-Egyptian writings attributed to him influenced Europe’s finest minds, including Blake, Newton, Milton, Shelley, Shakespeare, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Carl Jung. Today they offer a valuable time capsule of Egyptian and Greek esoteric philosophy. This easily accessible translation provides a fascinating introduction to the magico-religious ideas of the antique world. 208 pp.
