Présentation de l'éditeur

The first easily accessible translation of the esoteric writings that inspired some of the world?s greatest artists, scientists, and philosophers.

Here is an essential digest of the Greco-Egyptian writings attributed to the legendary sage-god Hermes Trismegistus (Greek for thrice-greatest Hermes)?a combination of the Egyptian Thoth and the Greek Hermes.

The figure of Hermes was venerated as a great and mythical teacher in the ancient world and was rediscovered by the finest minds of the Renaissance. The writings attributed to his hand are a time capsule of Egyptian and Greek esoteric philosophy and have influenced figures including Blake, Newton, Milton, Shelley, Shakespeare, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Jung.

Providing a fascinating introduction to the intersection of the Egyptian and Hellenic cultures and the magico-religious ideas of the antique world, The Hermetica is a marvelous volume for anyone interested in understanding the West?s roots in mystical thought.

Biographie de l'auteur

Timothy Freke is the author of many books on mystical philosophy, including The Tao Te Ching and, with Peter Gandy, The Complete Guide to World Mysticism. He lives in England.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Introduction To The Hermetcia 5 février 2013
Par Jeff Marzano - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I found this book interesting for getting the basic idea of what the Hermetica is.

I guess some reviewers think it's too watered down and doesn't match the voluminous original texts. However I read one such book years ago which was overloaded with footnotes and sections written in the original language which unfortunately for me I am not fluent in. There's something to be said for creating an approachable introduction to such a metaphysical subject.

The statements attributed to Thoth / Hermes in this book are very eloquent and poetic at times. He describes the universe as a goddess named Destiny who governs the stars and the constellations of the Zodiac. The Zodiac in turn governs the affairs of us mortals. On the day we are born the position of the constellations will foretell our destiny during this incarnation.

I would like to find a good book about astrology that shows the connections between the Zodiac and Egyptian mysticism if anyone can think of one. I'm interested in what the 12 signs mean in relation to the effects of the constellations on the affairs of mortals.

Some people see a connection between the Egyptian god Thoth and Christ like Thoth was Christ in another incarnation. Edgar Cayce stated that Thoth was the living embodiment of 'The Word' or something to that effect. The Gospel Of John describes Christ in that same way.

Another possible connection with Christ is the way Thoth explained what the term 'born again' means. Christians use that term often but do they know what it really means ? Perhaps they do know but they usually won't explain it in terms of Egyptian mysticism.

I believe Christ traveled to Egypt and studied with the Egyptian priests during the so called missing years that weren't captured in the bible. Christ experienced the Egyptian initiation rites I believe. If what some people believe is true it was Christ Himself who created the Egyptian priesthood and the initiation rites during his life experience as Melchizedek. Although who knows if Melchizedek and Thoth were even normal human beings. Perhaps they were something more.

That's why Saint Augustine said that Christianity has always existed and is the one true religion. The authors show that quote in the introduction.

It's an interesting theory that ancient and secret knowledge is passed along to a chosen few in every generation. Some people think that Pythagoras and Plato may have been two of those people.

The search for the origins of philosophy will I believe lead us back to ancient Egypt and ultimately to Atlantis. Mythology is the common thread between all of the world's religions, even the evil ones like Satanism. Although I'm not sure that saying Satan is 'evil' is totally accurate either.

Zeus, Osiris, Isis and those others are very real. Have no doubt about that.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Misleading Title. Better to Buy The Kybalion. 11 décembre 2013
Par Zalmorion the Fantastic - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I think the authors' other works are pretty interesting and informative, but this little book is a misleading effort. It is NOT the Hermetica. It is a series of brief commentaries on snippets of Hermes' writings. The quoted material is not earth-shattering, but simple, quaint, and prosaic. If this book is anything, it is an introduction to the Hermetica. Unfortunately, it does little to interest one in the larger works of Hermes.

The writing is professional and smooth. It is an easy read unburdened by academic clunkiness, but the content is just not there. If you are in for a quick read about Hermes, buy this. If you want a more in-depth treatise, avoid.

If you truly want to have your life changed, encounter ideas that are worth pondering, I recommend you buy The Kybalion by The Three Initiates. There are a few versions here on Amazon. In fact, there may be free versions online elsewhere. The Kybalion is what this book purported to be and then some. It offers a way to view life that religions have barely touched upon. It makes sense, and is an uplifting and inspiring read.

Freke and Gandy have a lot to offer as well. If you enjoy these authors, I recommend The Jesus Mysteries: Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God?.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This should be mandatory reading for everyone! From Satanists to Christians and everyone in the middle. 11 mai 2014

I had to read this as a lesson in Demonaltry, it's required reading and I see why. This book to me answers more questions than any other book I've read so far and it allowed me to view "God" or "Atum" as he is referred to in the text, through child like eyes and wonder. I don't normally say this but I feel it should be mandatory Philosophy" reading, it did inspire Shakespeare, Plato and the Greeks, so in all fairness this text has helped sculpt civilization as we know it, so it's worth reading:)
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring synopsis, a classic to keep 16 octobre 2012
Par Paul Smyres - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Hermes was clearly a great genius, but it's hard to know the precise meaning of the ancient writings, so scholars are prone to argue about translations. In my view, the arguments miss the point. Great truths resist translation to words, so we must use our intuition to ride along with the prose so we can receive enlightenment. Then our understanding can be filled in directly from source, within. In this version, I found the streaming lyrical script this author uses to be very inspiring and illuminating. I just like to keep this book around, pick it up now and then, and read. Hermes was what in India would have been called a guru, a sage, a mahatma, and he is talking about the living cosmos, the embodiment of awareness from top to bottom in this universe. He says the universe is breathing and singing, and in that divine vibration everything is happening. We are an intimate part of it, and knowing that is incredibly exciting. As above, so below. As without, so within. We are an atom in a galaxy, but within us are billions of tiny worlds as well. There is no end to the glory of Atum ( the one god and infinite spirit ). Every time I read this book I get a little more understanding. compare to Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and tibetan teachings about the nature of the cosmos. Wonderful book. If you also want a more scholarly approach to the complete teachings of Hermes, there are many other great titles.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hermticism 19 mai 2013
Par Stark - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The subject of Hermeticism is certainly controversial among different scholars. This pre-Christian variant of Gnostic ideas both encompasses and surpass Monotheism, Pantheism, Panentheism, Deism and Henotheism. This book did a good job exposing the readers of different strains of Hermetic ideas. If one understand the writings of Hermetic texts one can understand why during the Age of Science, many scientists of the 1700s read Hermetic texts whose alchemical ideas and "As above so below" philosophy became the precursor of modern science. Very cool book.
