Hermes Trismegistus, classical god

Engraving depicting Hermes Trismegistus, a syncretism (joining) of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. The writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus were hugely influential on mediaeval alchemists and led to a revival of the Hermetic movement in western Europe. This in turn led to various brotherhoods being established, notably the Rosicrucians and the Golden Dawn. This engraving comes from Symbola aureae by Michael Maier, published at Frankfurt in 1617

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite engraving of Hermes Trismegistus, a remarkable fusion of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. The joining of these two deities resulted in a syncretic figure whose writings held immense influence over medieval alchemists. These profound texts attributed to Hermes Trismegistus sparked a revival of the Hermetic movement throughout western Europe. The impact of this ancient deity's teachings was so significant that it led to the establishment of various brotherhoods, most notably the Rosicrucians and the Golden Dawn. Their pursuit of knowledge in alchemy and esoteric wisdom was deeply rooted in the principles expounded by Hermes Trismegistus. Dating back to 1617, this engraved masterpiece is extracted from Symbola aureae by Michael Maier, published in Frankfurt during the 17th century. Its horizontal composition beautifully captures both the German landscape and symbolic elements associated with hermetism. Todd-White Art Photography has skillfully captured every intricate detail within this monochrome image, allowing us to appreciate not only its historical significance but also its artistic brilliance. This print serves as a visual gateway into a world where gods are conflated, societies are shaped by dual influences, and ancient wisdom continues to inspire seekers on their quest for enlightenment.
