Yates, first published in The copy I have was published in The book describes in detail an oft-underlooked aspect of the Italian Renaissance period: Hermeticism. TRE is the third in that series and, without having read the first two, I can only suppose that it is a continuation of the same themes espoused therein.
Now all the aforementioned figures no doubt practiced some form of occultism — whether it be in the form of alchemical transmutation, or in the consorting with angels, or simply in the practise of healing another with medicine. All of these things were, in the time of the period being spoke about in the book, seen as blasphemous and heretical behaviour.
Many have been burnt at the stake for less. Both documents were anonymously published in the early 17th century and caused quite the stir among the local peoples of the Germanic country they were published in.
Frances Yates hits the nail right on the head when she supposes that the history of this period cannot be discussed without first addressing the magical and mystical backgrounds which many of the figures who were later to advance the scientific principles had their humble beginnings in.
A fantastic read which, for anyone who is interested in these topics, will be an absolute gold-mine of information. Share this:.
