Conversion : the old and the new in religion from Alexander the Great to Augustine of Hippo by Arthur Darby Nock( Book )

99 editions published between 1933 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the circumstances and psychology of religious conversion during the last three centuries before Christ and the first four of the Christian era. The central theme is, of course, Christianity and its converts, of whom St. Augustine of Hippo is the great example; but Professor Nock also discusses the influence of philosophy, notably on Julian, and surveys the Non-Christian religions of the ancient world, the way in which they spread and the measure of their success. The book is written in untechnical language for the general reader, and it will be of equal interest to students of the Roman Empire and to students of the general problem of religious conversion

"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

Martin Nilsson writes about the popular religious observances of the Greeks, as practiced both earlier in the twentieth century and in classical times, the agricultural festivals and customs, the rituals of family and society. The folk religions of Greece that underlay and continually erupted into the more "elevated" Olympian mythology of Homer and Hesiod are explained in detail by a scholar with unparalleled understanding of the rites and customs of rural life
