The Arabic Hermes: From Pagan Sage to Prophet of Science

The Arabic Hermes: From Pagan Sage to Prophet of Science review Ö 103 And the founder of ancient religion This book shows how the Arabic Hermes developed out of the earlier Greek and other late antiue traditions into something new which would in turn form the background to the later reception of the Greek Hermetica in the Italian Renaissance Assembling information in Greek Arabic Syriac and Coptic primary sources The Arabic Hermes will be of great interest to scholars in many fields including Classics Arabic Studies Iranian Studies Egyptology and Medieval Studi. Van Bladel seeks to answer the uestions of when why in what ways and by whom the Greco Egyptian literary character Hermes Trismegistus whose imagined authority served to legitimate countless scientific philosophical and mystical texts transmitted in his name since the second century CE came to continue in much the same role for the early medieval Arabic translators and compilers of learned traditions encountered and absorbed by the expanding empire of Islam The substance from which van Bladel extracts his conclusions consists of tortuously ramified and intentionally obfuscated chains of bibliographic transmission which he carefully and to this non specialist reader s satisfaction convincingly reconstructs and elucidates by means of rigorous textual and historical analysis

The Arabic Hermes: From Pagan Sage to Prophet of Science review Ö 103 That Hermes had lived in extremely ancient times perhaps before the Deluge and his antiuity endowed him with a pristine intellectual priority and made him attractive as an authority in religious arguments Early Arabic literature beginning in the eighth century also includes detailed discussions of Hermes Trismegistus both as a teacher of ancient legend and as the alleged author of works on the apocryphal sciences especially astrology Moreover Hermes is imagined in Arabic as a prophet lawgiver. As a huge fan of the character of Hermes Trismegistus throughout history I was absolutely intrigued by this work I was as I think many who sought out this book were a bit disappointed to find out that this is just part one of a two part series this being a work detailing the life of Hermes throughout the history of the Middle East and the different places and times that his story and his influence springs up I am holding my breath currently as I was when I first ordered this on to get a copy of the forthcoming Arabic Hermetica which purports to detail the key Hermetic texts utilized I assume by the figures introduced in the current volume This is a monumental task and I hope that Mr van Bladel is up to the task of completing it in my lifetime This is an excellent companion to Garth Fowden s study on Hermes and the Hermetic literature as contination of that study into the pre renaissance
