Who was Hermes Trismegistus?
Sunday 16th January – 6pm
A zoom talk by Gary Lachman
From the sands of Alexandria via the Renaissance palaces of the Medicis, and into our own times, Hermes Trismegistus — the ‘thrice-great one’ — has had a profound influence on the western mind. For centuries his name ranked among the most illustrious of the ancient world.
Considered by some a contemporary of Moses and a forerunner of Christ, this remarkable figure arose in ancient Egypt, from a fusion of the Egyptian god Thoth and the Greek god Hermes. Master of magic, writing, science, and philosophy, Hermes was thought to have walked with gods and be the source of the divine wisdom granted to man at the dawn of time.
Through centuries of wars, conquests and religious persecutions, the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus have still survived. My talk, based on my book The Quest For Hermes Trismegistus, will chart the influence this legendary sage has had on western civilization, and look at how we might recover his vision and awaken a shift in human consciousness.
