Oracles and Mysteries - Thomas Taylor
Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) was the first English translator of the works of Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus and the later Platonists. Oracles and Mysteries brings together Taylor's translation of the Chaldean Oracles with a selection of his own essays exploring subjects such as the Eleusinian Mysteries, the Mysteries of Bacchus, the Restoration of Platonic Theology and the Platonic Demonstration of the Immortality of the Soul. Essential reading for lovers of ancient philosophy and mystical thought.
