Thrice-Greatest Hermes, Vol. 3

By G.R.S. Mead

This, the third and final part of G.R.S. Meads' collection of Hermetic literature focuses on the residual texts known from second- and third- hand references. Many of the longer fragments are gleaned from Stobaeus, a fifth century CE late pagan anthologizer of Greek literature. The remainder come from the early Church Fathers, embedded in polemics and doctrinal discussions. This volume closes with the invaluable series index, which spans all three volumes.
