Challenging conventional interpretations of the Renaissance which hold that the period signaled an epochal break in which science and secularization combined to form a distinctly modern consciousness, McKnight (history, U. of Florida) identifies and analyzes a neglected source of modern consciousness the prisca theologia tradition of Hermeticism, magic, and alchemy, which was revived as part of the Renaissance recovery of ancient learning.
