Aug 20, Matt rated it really liked eternxl. An excellent resource on the history of Alchemy. It does rather gloss over the divine origins of Hermes as assymed knowledge.
The history of the de evokution of Hermes or Hermes-Mercury, or Hermes-Thoth into the alchemical figure of Trismegistus is very dense, and even here presented, difficult to follow entirely.
A eterna, collation of resources into thesophical and humanist works is also annotated. Jan 26, Maan Kawas rated it it was amazing.

I’m not an academic, so I might have found this book difficult. However, Hermes Trismagistus has special meaning to me, so I loved every page. Hermes is the god associated with depth psychology, because he’s the Greek deity who is the guide of the underworld, the land of the dead, dreams, and the psyche.

As god of roads he is able to cross boundaries and become the mediator; As god of thieves he’s able to enter forbidden places and bring treasures you can’t grasp within yourself, and also procure useful information from outside.

As his name, Mercury, implies, like the liquid metal he can change form and appearance, and he can help to bring change in wntoine life. He’s the god of change. As messenger of the gods, he brings inspiration and realization, so of course he’s a perfect god for writers and seekers.
He’s the one god in the Greek pantheon who is credited with a large number of books, still available for us to read, The Hermeticum. I liked the book, of course, because I can’t get enough of the topic and the person.
