Chapter Summary

This is the last chapter of the book Marsilio Ficino: His Theology, His Philosophy, His Legacy. There are nine illustrations and drawings such as those depicting a monastery of Fontebuono and Sacro Eremo with ladder ascending to heaven, proposed sketch for the dial of Lorenzo della Volpaia's clock, and bust of a youth. Marsilio Ficino was a great Florentine scholar, philosopher and priest who was the architect of Renaissance Platonism and whose long-lasting influence on philosophy, love and music theory, medicine and magic extended across Europe. The book covers such topics as priesthood, the influence of Hermetic monism, Plotinus and Augustine, Jewish transmission of the prisca theologia, the 15th c. Plato-Aristotle controversy, the soul and its afterlife, the primacy of the will, theriac and musical therapy, the notions of matter, seeds, mirrors and clocks, and other fascinating philosophical and theological issues.

Keywords: Marsilio Ficino; philosophical issues; theological issues
