Giordano Bruno & the Hermetic Tradition by Frances A. Yates (for historical purposes)

Book Cover: Giordano Bruno & the Hermetic Tradition by Frances A. Yates (for historical purposes)

Emphasizing the primary importance of Hermetism in Renaissance thought, Yates demonstrates that Bruno was at once a rational philospher and a magician – burned at the stake – with an unorthodox religious message. Her acclaimed study gives an overview not only of Renaissance humanism but of its interplay – and conflict – with magic and occult practices.
