Edited and newly translated from the Greek and Latin Hermetica. Hermes was the god of wisdom in ancient Greece, Egypt and elsewhere. The various Hermetic books, although written anonymously, were all said to be inspired by this great god of wisdom, and the Hermetic teachings were a major source of wisdom for many in the ancient world. In this important book, Greenlees has collected together all of the most important Hermetic texts and put them together in one volume. He does a great job in explaining what the teachings really mean, then closes the book by listing parallel passages, in columns, in order to compare Hermetic verses with those from the Gospels of Jesus, Islam, China, Zarathustra and the Mystic Christ.
