These writings are attributed to Hermes Trismegistus an ancient Egyptian the founder of all arts and sciences both mundane and spiritual. Rather than being an actual person Hermes is, in reality, the Egyptian personification of the Gnostic Revealer. In addition to providing translations of the beautiful Greek hymns from the ancient Hermetic writing, Mead offers an interpretation which is sympathetic personal and full of insight. This little volume which might well be called initiatory is an excellent introduction to the Hermetic Gnosis.
