Hermes Trismegistus and the Egyptian connection

The truth is over here....

“As above,
so below.”

~ The Emerald Tablet,
a text attributed to one ‘Hermes Trismegistus’ supposedly written c. first three centuries AD

In alchemy the most common name you will hear is ‘Hermes Trismegistus’, sometimes called the ‘thrice-greatest’. His name is attached to various texts which were later compiled into the Corpus Hermeticum. Catholic priest and humanist philosopher Marsilio Ficino1433-1499, born and died Italy, was responsible for translating many of these texts into Latin. Over a hundred different editions were published between 1500 and 1641. The ORIGINAL authorship is unknown. Some sources point to Neo-Pythagorean philosopher Apollonius of Tyana who lived in the 1st century AD, but they exist regardless. Fragments of texts were also found at Nag Hammadi with the Dead Sea Scrolls.
