Thrice Greatest HermesG.R.S. Mead
This complete and unabridged edition of Thrice Greatest Hermes contains translations of existing sermons and fragments of Trismegistic (Hermetic) literature, with introductions, commentaries, and notes. It will be of great value to anyone studying Hellenistic theosophy or interested in the historic, mythic, and mystic origins of Christianity. G. R. S. Mead’s extensive study of Hermetic literature, Eastern philosophy, and Greek mysticism led him to the conclusion that the Wisdom of Egypt formed the background for many of the principal teachings of Early Christianity. In these ancient texts he also found many of the underlying principles shared by a wide variety of religions and esoteric disciplines.
