The case presented in this book is somewhat dated, with many of her assumptions and conclusions having been refuted by more modern scholarship. That being said this, along with Dame Yates follow-up works, are still the best and most accessible introductions to the case of the reinterpretation and popularization of occult science in the early Renaissance. The beginning of the book gives a brief Dame Frances Yates is one of the most accessible and passionate scholarly writers I have encountered.

The beginning of the book gives a brief history of the mythical character Hermes Trismegistus, the ancient sage said to have delivered all science, medicine and magic to mankind, and outlines the influence of this figure on the minds of the greatest thinkers of the Common Era. From there Yates takes us through the story of the revival of Hermes in the 14th Century in the court of Cosimo de Medici who had his scribe and physician Marsillio Ficino translate the newly rediscovered Corpus Hermeticum, 14 spiritual and philosophic tracts believed to predate the writings of Moses and to have influenced and informed all of the literature of the Monotheistic that led up to the revelation of Christianity.

To develop this point, Yates traces the flood of Hermes ideas and influence through some key figures in the early to late renaissance; Pico de Mirandolla, Cornelius Agrippa and up through the life of Bruno and his contemporaries. The life of Bruno, and the role of the Hermeticum in his thought is the focus of the entire latter half of the book. To a degree I think that she accomplishes this, though at times it is difficult to tell.

This book has continually raised more questions for me than it answered; and this is not a bad thing. The studies that she spent her life developing along with her fellows at the Warburg institute has in large part transformed Renaissance studies and this is one of the seminal works of her life; I cannot recommend this enough.
