darkbooks.org began in early 2008 I am happy to donate my time to providing you this resource, I would also like to note, that, although I try, I do not always have enough time to deal with the site, including, unfortunately, I do not always have time to answer all letters, because I have to earn money for a living. If you can financially help me, it would free me from the worries of earning money for living, perhaps partially, but ideally completely, then all 100% of my time could be devoted to the site. Also I do pay monthly web server/files storage and hosting costs to keep this site on the air. Please consider making a donation to help me continue this activity and devote more time to it or at least offset the cost of paying for storage/hosting. Even a small contribution helps!

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.
