Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the formation of Hermetic traditions in the Middle Ages. A tradition education to traditions of hermetic texts seems to be a process of early modern times by a majority opinion research. The reception of hermetic writings can be traced by Christian writers since late antiquity. The reception and appropriation of history of Hermeticism contributed significantly to the diversification of the European and religiousness- and forms of knowledge in the early modern period. The chapter discusses the philosophical Hermetica in the Christian interpretation of the Middle Ages. It demonstrates the discovery of the "technical and operational" Hermetica in the Middle Ages. The chapter discusses the contours of medieval tradition formations of Hermes Trismegistus. Traditions to Hermes Trismegistus have experienced significant formations in the Middle Ages. The original text of the chapter is in German.
