These Oracles are considered to embody many of the principal features of Chaldæan philosophy. They have come down to us through Greek translations and were held in the greatest esteem throughout antiquity, a sentiment which was shared alike by the early Christian Fathers and the later Platonists. The doctrines contained therein are attributed to Zoroaster aka Zarathustra. || The Collectanea Hermetica is a 10 volume set of Occult Hermetic books edited by William Wynn Westcott.
