Conversion; the old and the new in religion from Alexander the Great to Augustine of Hippo by Arthur Darby Nock( Book )

81 editions published between 1933 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the circumstances and psychology of religious conversion during the last three centuries before Christ and the first four of the Christian era. The central theme is, of course, Christianity and its converts, of whom St. Augustine of Hippo is the great example; but Professor Nock also discusses the influence of philosophy, notably on Julian, and surveys the Non-Christian religions of the ancient world, the way in which they spread and the measure of their success. The book is written in untechnical language for the general reader, and it will be of equal interest to students of the Roman Empire and to students of the general problem of religious conversion

Hermetica : the Greek Corpus Hermeticum and the Latin Asclepius in a new English translation, with notes and introduction by Hermes( Book )

95 editions published between 1194 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hermetica are a body of mystical texts written in late antiquity, but believed during the Renaissance (when they became well known) to be much older. Their supposed author, a mythical figure named Hermes Trismegistus, was thought to be a contemporary of Moses. The Hermetic philosophy was regarded as an ancient theology, parallel to the revealed wisdom of the Bible, supporting Biblical revelation and culminating in the Platonic philosophical tradition. This new translation is the only English version based on reliable texts, and Professor Copenhaver's introduction and notes make this accessible and up-to-date edition an indispensable resource to scholars."--Amazon.com
