Aug 20, Matt rated it really liked it. An excellent resource on the history of Alchemy. It does rather gloss over the divine origins of Hermes as assymed knowledge. The history of the de evokution of Hermes or Hermes-Mercury, or Hermes-Thoth into the alchemical figure of Trismegistus is very dense, and even here presented, difficult to follow entirely.

A brilliant collation of resources into thesophical and humanist works is also annotated. Jan 26, Maan Kawas rated it it was amazing. Excellent book!

I'm not an academic, so I might have found this book difficult. However, Hermes Trismagistus has special meaning to me, so I loved every page. Hermes is the god associated with depth psychology, because he's the Greek deity who is the guide of the underworld, the land of the dead, dreams, and the psyche.

What I particularly like about Eternal Hermes. As his name, Mercury, implies, like the liquid metal he can change form and appearance, and he can help to bring change in your life. He's the god of change. As messenger of the gods, he brings inspiration and realization, so of course he's a perfect god for writers and seekers.

He's the one god in the Greek pantheon who is credited with a large number of books, still available for us to read, The Hermeticum. I liked the book, of course, because I can't get enough of the topic and the person.

The Eternal Hermes : From Greek God to Magus

By Antoine Faivre. Hermes--the fascinating, mercurial messenger of the gods, eloquent revealer of hidden wisdom, and guardian of occult knowledge has played a central role in the development of esotericism in the West. Drawing upon many rare books and manuscripts, this highly illustrated work explores the question of where Hermes Trismegistus came from, how he came to be a patron of the esoteric traditions, and how the figure of Hermes has remained lively and inspiring to our own day. The title of this collection encompasses two figures who are both distinct and complementary: Hermes-Mercuri us, the God with the caduceus, who belongs to Greek and Roman mythology, and Hermes Trismegistus, whose appearance can be traced back to the early Alexan dian epoch. Each of the six chapters stands on its own, having been published separately, and deals either with the God Hermes, or with Hermes Trismegistus—or with both. Given the similar inspiration running through all six essays, David Fideler and Joscelyn Godwin suggested that they might constitute an anthology endowed with some homogeneity.
