Item description for Corpus Hermeticum by RS Mead Hermes Trismegistos G...
A collection of Greek writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistos, dating from some time before the close of the second century AD, Corpus Hermeticum forms the core of the Hermetic tradition, and was one of the main influences on and motivational factors for the Renaissance. This OMTO edition is based upon the classic translation by GRS Mead, lightly updated into more contemporary English to make the writings more accessible, however, with every effort made to leave Mead's masterful grammatical style intact. This is one of the world's greatest religio-philosophical and spiritual texts. It speaks directly to the human spirit and is the antithesis of an exoteric work, but rather one that aims to promote personal Gnosis. For these reasons, this edition resists the temptation to impose further interpretation or commentary upon the reader.

Beautiful!!!! Aug 8, 2008
This would have got all 5 stars from me if it was G.R.S Mead's translations I always love the origenal translations I really don't need them in lamens terms with that said this is a beautiful collection of writing not intended for the average Joe which would have no clue what these scriptures meant or even cared yet very special for those who are truly spiritual 4 stars from me
AWAKENING AND INSPIRING May 11, 2008
A classical, one of the timeless pivotal readings to start a spiritual path along the right lines. No wonder so much has been written throughout the ages based on these early scripts, how many breakthroughs in philosophy, religion and even science it provided inspiration to! Compared to more recent translations, this OMTO's version based on an early 1900's by G.R.S. Mead preserves the strong spiritual impact such a selection of texts is forcefully bound to have. Making this kind of knowledge available to the present day seekers of the meaning of existence is truly a great service to mankind!
