What Is Hermeticism? By Colton Swabb

By Colton Swabb

 

The hermetic tradition represents a non-Christian lineage of Gnosticism, which is the name for a variety of ancient religious ideas and systems dating back to the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D.

 

The surviving writings of Hermeticism are known as the Corpus Hermetica, which is composed of a series of letters from a master, Hermes Trismegistus, wherein he tries to enlighten his disciple. These letters were lost to the western world after classical times, but survived in the Byzantine libraries.

 

 

 

Inspired by this wave of innovation, these timeless principles were resurrected again by the Freemasons and showed up in the teachings of the American revolutionaries.

 

But why is this philosophy so influential?

Being a Gnostic tradition, Hermeticism is a school of ideas and systems that focuses on the pursuit of Gnosis  meaning the pursuit of empirical knowledge pertaining to spiritual mysteries.

 

You see, in a historical world where all major religions had gatekeepers to the spiritual experience, the Gnostics, and later Hermeticists, rebelled in thought.

 

They took the pursuit of the mystical experience into their own hands and developed a way of thinking about the world that helped them communicate with and directly experience what they call a more visionary reality.
