IFW V: The Real Hermetic Tradition (Hanegraaff)

In collaboration with the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica

“The Real Hermetic Tradition”, by Wouter J. Hanegraaff

In his second Infinite Fire Webinar, Wouter Hanegraaff argues that Frances Yates’ notion of a “Hermetic tradition” in the Renaissance had much less to do with the hermetica than she claimed. Instead, there are traces of a real hermetic tradition, represented by a different set of figures than the ones Yates discussed. Watch the webinar to find out who.
