The Chaldean Oracles
Text, translation and commentary by Ruth Majercik.
The Chaldean Oracles hold a special place in the development of the Platonic tradition: they gave a new impetus and inspiration to a number of philosophers now known as Neoplatonists.
Since its publication in 1989, this presentation of the Chaldean Oracles in parallel Greek text and English translation, with Ruth Majercik's detailed notes and analysis, has established itself as the modern baseline for scholarly work upon the Oracles. This is a facsimile edition of that publication.
272 pages. Hardcover.
