This book traces the development of hermeticism from its early literature to its relevance to contemptorary occultism today. Core hermetic doctrines and esoteric philosophy are clearly explained and explored and particular attention is paid to astrology and alchemy, both of which are extremely important in hermeticism's history. The author introduces the lives and thought of key figures such as Agrippa, Bruno, Ficino and John Dee. Thorough and engaging, The Hermetic Link is an essential read for anyone interested in occult history and its influence on contemporary culture. Colour frontispiece, illustrated throughout.
