Reviews
"...the only reliable English translation of the eighteen tractates of the Greek Corpus Hermeticum....Students of Gnosticism and Greco-Roman religion and philosophy will consult this book with great profit." Religious Studies News
"Brian Copenhaver's very welcome translation of the Hermetica is able to draw on these important advances [of modern scholarship]....Copenhaver's industry is exemplary, digesting many years' research in many different areas and languages into a dense but comprehensive introduction which ties together dynastic, social and philosophical history, and adding a full and detailed commentary....Copenhaver's edition and commentary is fully abreast of the main lines of contemporary research, and can be confidently recommended to all scholars seeking precise guidance on these difficult works....[T]his is a remarkably useful edition sure to serve as a focal point and catalyst in our understanding of the Hermetic treatises." Brian Vickers, Ambix
