Late Classical Astrology: Paulus Alexandrinus and Olympiodorus (Out of Print)

by Greenbaum, Dorian Gieselr

Publisher: ARHAT (Robert Hand)

Binding: Spiral or comb-bound

Book ID: ARHA01, ARHA01

Description

Late Classical Astrology: Paulus Alexandrinus and Olympiodorus contains works which offer the most complete look at the Astrology of late Classical Antiquity. It shows this tradition just on the verge of making the leap to the Medieval Arabic world in which it was combined with Persian and Indian traditions. From this came the synthesis that gave rise to the Astrology of Medieval Europe, the immediate ancestor of modern Western Astrology. No other body of Greek texts gives quite this view of Astrology in transition.

This is the third translation of Paulus' Introduction, but this is the first time that the work has been published along with the commentaries of later Greek astrologers as well as the extensive commentary now attributed to Olympiodorus, a noted Neoplatonist of early sixth century Alexandria. The Olympiodorus work is itself as extensive as the Introduction of Paulus to which it was to serve as commentary. The Paulus by itself has proven to be a rather terse and unclear work which is of limited value by itself as an introduction to late Greek astrology, but when it is combined with the scholia and the Olympiodorus Commentary, we have a much more complete description of this school of astrology.

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
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...
