Prisci Theologi and the Hermetic Reformation in the Fifteenth Century (New)
by Heiser, James
Book ID: 9781461093824, 1461093821
Usually available in 3-5 days
Before Martin Luther called upon the Church to return "ad fontes" to Holy Scripture, Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) endeavored to call the Church to a far different 'font' -- the writings of the "prisci theologi" (ancient theologians) of pagan antiquity. Zoroaster and Hermes Trismegistus were interpreted as inspired teachers whom men such as Ficino and Pico believed could provide guidance for the Church in their time. Their students included future popes (most notably Pope Leo X) and leaders of the Renaissance, such as Johannes Reuchlin (1455-1522). Their influence lives to this day in the "Traditionalist" movement and in the "postmodern" belief that all religions ultimately lead to the truth. James D. Heiser is Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA) and Pastor of Salem Lutheran Church in Malone, Texas. He also serves as Dean of Missions of the Augustana Ministerium. He earned his M.Div. and S.T.M. at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
