"Hermès Trismégiste est un auteur imaginaire. Son existence est insoutenable, ses œuvres apocryphes, leur rédacteur inconnu. Et pourtant, résistant à toutes les critiques, il a connu plusieurs renaissances. Aujourd'hui les spécialistes y trouvent l'expression d'authentiques idées égyptiennes et les historiens de la philosophie analysent ses exercices spirituels. Composés au début de notre ère, ces écrits philosophiques n'exposent pas un système, mais une voie, c'est-à-dire une progression mentale, où les valeurs s'affirment à chaque étape. La fortune d'Hermès est due à l'idée qu'il incarne : la certitude que l'homme, loin d'avoir perdu la gloire du paradis, peut trouver, dans les mythes ancestraux, sa mémoire et les profondeurs de son esprit, la force de remonter jusqu'à l'intellect divin dont il est issu. Trismégiste est-il le troisième et le plus grand d'une lignée de sages ou est-ce le même qui s'est incarné trois fois pour enseigner les trois puissances divines ? Les textes grecs et latins ont été publiés dans la CUF en 4 volumes, de 1941 à 1954, par A. D. Nock et A.-J. Festugière. Depuis, d'autres témoins ont été découverts, en grec, en copte, en arménien, en syriaque et en arabe. Parmi ces Paralipomènes, se révèlent quelques pierres angulaires de l'édifice hermétique."--Site de l'éditeur

8 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Asclepius is one of two philosophical books ascribed to the legendary sage of Ancient Egypt, Hermes Trismegistus, who was believed in classical and renaissance times to have lived shortly after Moses. The Greek original, lost since classical times, is thought to date from the second or third century AD. A Latin version survived, however, of which this volume is a translation." "Like its companion, the Corpus Hermeticum (also published by Duckworth as The Way of Hermes), the Asclepius describes the most profound philosophical questions in the form of a conversation: the nature of the One, the role of the gods, the stature of the human being. Hermes is said to have categorised his talks as either 'open' or 'secret'. To the latter evidently very few were admitted; in the case of the Asclepius only three close disciples. Hermes is adamant that this teaching should remain secret lest 'a conversation worthy of such reverence' be profaned by the presence of many people." "Not only does the Asclepius offer spiritual guidance, but it is also a valuable insight into the minds and emotions of the Egyptians in ancient and classical times. Many of the views expressed also reflect Gnostic beliefs which passed into early Christianity."--BOOK JACKET

Hermetica : the Greek Corpus Hermeticum and the Latin Asclepius in a new English translation, with notes and introduction by Brian P Copenhaver( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hermetica are a body of theological-philosophical texts written in late antiquity, but long believed to be much older. Their supposed author, Hermes Trismegistus, was thought to be a contemporary of Moses, and the Hermetic philosophy was regarded as an ancient theology, parallel to the received wisdom of the Bible. This first English translation based on reliable texts, together with Brian P. Copenhaver's comprehensive introduction, provide an indispensable resource to scholars in ancient philosophy and religion, early Christianity, Renaissance literature, and history, the history of science, and the occultist tradition in which the Hermetica have become canonical texts."--Publisher's description
