Mercurius or Hermes Trismegistus of legend was a personage, an Egyptian sage or succession of sages, who, since the time of Plato, has been identified with the Thoth (the name of the month September) of that people. This Thoth is the reputed author of the Kitual of the Dead, or, as styled in Egyptian phraseology, the Manifestation of Light to the Soul, who through it declared the will of the Gods and the mysterious nature of Divine things to Man.1 Dr Pietschmann, in his work on Hermes, which exhaustively treats of this subject,2 gives a list of authorities for these facts, ranging from Plato down to Syncellus, circa A.D. 790. He states, however (p. 33), that by the time that the so-called Hermeneutical writings were collected together, the identity of Hermes with Thoth was forgotten, and Thoth became his son Tat, and Asclepius his disciple, both of whom he instructs in the writings now translated. Subsequently Pietschmann informs us, quoting Letronne,3 that the epithet Trismegistus appears first in the second century of the Christian era, and that, before that period, Hermes was designated by the repetiA1 tion of the peyas, ft eyas, neya; only, as on the Eosetta Stone. He was considered to be the impersonation of the religion, art, learning, and sacerdotal discipline of the Egyptian priesthood. He was, by several of the Fathers, and, in oi-7 TJ 1R awlinson s Egypt, i. 136, and the authorities there quoted. 2L eipsic, Engelmann, 1875, pp. 31-33. 3I bid. p. 35, Inscription Grecque de Rosette, Letronne, Paris,

Excerpt from The Theological and Philosophical Works of Hermes Trismegistus, Christian Neoplatonist: Translated From the Original Greek, With Preface, Notes, and Indices These same facts serve also to indicate his actual epoch. Although, as De Rouge1 has shown, very early Egyptian monuments now at Berlin and elsewhere express or insinuate the idea of the Eternal' F ather Creator, and of his Son begotten before the worlds, yet the dogma of the Holy Trinity is, as we shall find, expressed in far more categorical terms, and almost in the very words of St. John, by our Hermes in his Poem andres; so also the doctrine of Baptism and the Regenera tion or new birth, as set forth by St. John in the third chapter of his Gospel, as due to The Man, the only Son of God.
