The Corpus Hermeticum

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.

    Wherefore child-making is a very great and a most pious thing in life for them who think aright, and to leave life on earth without a child a very great misfortune and impiety; and he who hath no child is punished by the daimones after death.

    And this is why beyond all creatures on the earth man is twofold; mortal because of body, but because of the essential man immortal.

    Though deathless and possessed of sway o'er all, yet doth he suffer as a mortal doth, subject to Fate
