The fourteen essays (mainly in English, one in French, two in German) consider aspects of Gnosis in Late Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period: the Hermetic and gnostic tradition, Hermetic-religious rites, magic, alchemy, apocalyptic vision, and the influence of Hermetic thought on Early Christian and medieval theologians. The volume was published in honour of Professor Gilles Quispel, an expert in the field of gnosis.
