Hermes Trismegistus: Fall and Rise of a Magical Figure

Follow Gary Lachman on Hermes' path into the underworld, and his subsequent resurrection.

In 1463, the lost books of the legendary Hermes Trismegistus were re-discovered by the Florentine power broker Cosimo de Medici's book scout. Translated by the Platonist Marsilio Ficino, they quickly became Renaissance bestsellers. Yet 200 years later, Hermes Trismegistus' reputation was in tatters, his hermetic philosophy a laughing stock. What happened to send the mythical 'thrice great one' into such a critical decline, and what did this mean for the history of western consciousness? Follow Gary Lachman on Hermes' path into the underworld, and his subsequent resurrection. Gary Lachman is author of many books on Western occult history, most recently The Quest for Hermes Trismegistus (Floris).
