Old Testament Prototypes for the Hermetic Trishagion in Poimandres 31 – and Support for an Old Conjecture

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The article discusses influences from the Book of Isaiah upon the concluding hymn of Poimandres (Corpus Hermeticum I) and uses religio-historical information gleaned from this comparison as a basis for defending a reconstruction of this text based on Papyrus Berolinensis 9794. Various epithets and descriptions of the divine occurring in the hymn are argued to be dependent upon the titulature of YHWH in Isa 6:3; specific differences between the Poimandres text and the presumed background text are put in a religio-historical perspective as being indicative of the specific theological position of the author of the Hermetist author.
