Online Event: Hermes Latinus / Asclepius

Updated: Jan 5, 2021

In December 2019, Dr Matteo Stefani (Torino) published his new edition of the dialogue entitled Asclepius, a foundational text of the Latin Hermetic tradition. This edition became the latest volume in the CC CM subseries “Hermes Latinus: Opera Omnia”, created by the late professor Paolo Lucentini in the late 1980s. To mark this occasion and to look back and forth on the Hermes Latinus initiative, Brepols & Corpus Christianorum are co-organizing an online alternative to the live event that was originally planned in Napels in May 2020:
