Hymns of Hermes
by G. R. S. Mead
This is a great little book of Gnostic and Hermetic wisdom by the accomplished translator G. R. S. Mead. As a scholar, he was an early proponent of the ancient Hellenistic Egyptian origins of the Hermetica. He has wonderful insight into the inner, spiritual meaning of the Hermetic teachings. Hymns of Hermes is a collection of poetic songs, or ecstatic hymns, designed to foster a personal experience of the Divine.
