Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition, Paperback

Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition Paperback



Emphasizing the primary importance of Hermetism in Renaissance thought, Yates demonstrates that Bruno was at once a rational philospher and a magician - burned at the stake - with an unorthodox religious message.

Her acclaimed study gives an overview not only of Renaissance humanism but of its interplay - and conflict - with magic and occult practices.
