Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition, Paperback Book

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.
