Guy Ogilvy's fascinating history of magic and wizardry continues with the Great Wizards of the Renaissance. Beginning with the Greek Neopythagorean philosopher Apollonius, the Gnostic anti-hero Simon Magus, and the significant influence of Hermes Trismegistus, this book details the accomplishments and impact of dozens of figures including Ficino, Pico, Savonarola, Henry Cornelius Agrippa, John Dee, and Trithemius. Within these pages, you will learn how the magic of the ancients was rediscovered and refined by the great Renaissance wizards, establishing the deep roots of modern occultism and all the ideological intrigues and mystical insights that came along with it.
