The Hermetica as Ancient Science
The Corpus Hermeticum1(CH) is a compilation of philosophical, theosophical, mystical and cosmological texts dating, in their present form, from the third-fourth centuries C.E. and attributed, according to tradition, to Hermes Trismegistus. These texts exerted considerable influence upon western philosophers, scientific thinkers and mystics throughout the Middle Ages, especially influencing the Renaissance Neoplatonists. Scholarly discussions of the Hermetica once focused upon this Corpus, which some have felt contains lofty ideals and noble speculations.
