Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition By Frances A. Yates




Placing Bruno--both advanced philosopher and magician burned at the stake--in the Hermetic tradition, Yates's acclaimed study gives an overview not only of Renaissance humanism but of its interplay--and conflict--with magic and occult practices.

"This brilliant book [is] an intellectual adventure to read. Historians of ideas, of religion, and of science will study it."--Hugh Trevor-Roper
