Iamblichus: De Mysteriis

by Dillon, John M., Iamblichus

Short description

Writings from the Greco-Roman World, V. 4. “The need for a new English version of Iamblichus’s De mysteriis, an important attempt to give Neoplatonic theurgy a philosophical basis, has been a pressing issue for many years. This distinguished and reliable new translation by the team of Clarke, Dillon, and Hershbell, based on the excellent Budé text of Des Places, is a very careful and idiomatic rendition of the original and will certainly remain the standard and authoritative edition for years to come. Each page of the translation faces the corresponding page of the critical Greek text of Des Places. The book includes an important introduction and many helpful textual annotations. Every student of late antiquity will want to have this significant volume in her or his library.”—David E. Aune, Professor of New Testament, University of Notre Dame. Society of Biblical Literature; Bilingual edition (November 1, 2003). Tranlated with introduction and notes by Emma C. Clarke John M. Dillon and Jackson P. Hershbell. 427 pp., searchable pdf.
