Publisher Description

This is the extended and annotated edition including



* an extensive annotation of almost 10.000 words about the history and basics of Gnosticism, written by Wilhelm Bousset



The so-called Hermetic writings have been known to Christian writers for many centuries. The early church Fathers (Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria) quote them in defense of Christianity. Stobaeus collected fragments of them. The Humanists knew and valued them. They were studied in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and in modern times have again been diligently examined by many scholars.
