In my translation I have endeavoured to express the underlying concepts as accurately as possible - which sometimes necessitated transliterations (qv. the Introduction) - based as this endeavour is on some forty years of study of theological, ancient philosophical, classical, Arabic, and alchemical, texts.

The Greek text used is that of A.D. Nock & A-J. Festugiere, Corpus Hermeticum, Collection Bude, 1946, although occasionally I have followed the reading of the MSS rather than Nock's emendations.

In the translation, angled brackets < > indicate an emendation, missing text, or a conjectural reading of the text.
