It is fair to say that Sumer was the birth of all civilization, where the invention of writing took place, rotuals well as maybe one of the first elaborate forms of religion. Some of the most important esoteric principles and practices were passed into Egypt, where they became associated with the Magical knowledge of the early Egyptians.
This is how really started what we can call the Western Tradition which eventually spread in the countries around the Mediterranean Sea. The God Thot and the Goddesses Isis are the real founders uarum the hermetic and theurgic traditions.
Until the 5th century this fascinating tradition continues to develop in several steps that will be explained in more details on other parts of this website. The first main aspect has been the development of the cult of Thoth solls Hermopolis.
Based on the founding story of the creation of the world, the priests elaborated rites and sacred mysteries. The same happened for the Goddess Isis who was also linked to magic. During the Hellenistic period of Egypt known as Ptolemaic period from the name of its founder Ptolemy I, this very ancient tradition became associated to the Greek Mysteries.
This is the time when philosophy and theurgy were taught in Alexandria. This period and place should be seen as the birth place of the tradition we are referring to. Egypt, birth place of the Western Tradition. The first famous figure to travel to Egypt in order to learn the secrets of this ancient religious and Magical Tradition, was Pythagoras, in the 5th century. He spent a long time there and obviously received the teachings and training that were available in the Temples of this country.
Just as Pythagoras had done, Plato travelled to Egypt in order to receive the teachings from priests who were part of the clergy of Heliopolis. Then back in Athens Greece after years of learning, he founded the Academy.
Today scholars agree on the fact that this Academy maintained the organization of the Pythagorean School by the publication of books, and with oral and private teachings.
It is startling to realize that this Academy was active from the 5th century BCE until 6th century CE, so for over 10 centuries!
It is very likely that he passed on his philosophical heritage and initiations from Plato and Pythagoras to him. Of course, Magic existed prior to this period, but Iamblichus unified these different doctrines, all of which originated from Egypt and Chaldea, upon the theological and ritual foundation of the Chaldaean Oracles. It was really at this moment that this spiritual family found its axis and homeland.
Iamblichus taught in Apamea throughout the entire first quarter of the 4th century. Meanwhile during the period when Iamblichus was teaching, Christianity was rising rapidly, imposing its absolute and intolerant view. Unfortunately, and as is very often true in the history of humanity, it was not the moderate participants who shaped this new religion…. The Ptolemaic dynasty ended in 30 BCE. The school of Alexandria continues to exist until the 5th century. Hypatia was savagely murdered by Christians while the library of Alexandria was destroyed by the rising rage of Christianity.
Initiates, theurgists, philosophers, and scientists flew to other countries such as Italy, Greece, Syria, etc. Keeping these elements in mind, it is possible to say that the Hermetic and Theurgic Tradition was maintained in Byzantium, Greece, and Italy. During the early days of the Christian religion, the Emperor Justinian declared that the Orthodox Nicene Christian faith was the official and only permitted religion that could be practiced in the Empire.
In the Neoplatonic Academy of Athens was closed by order of the Emperor. From that day forward, Paganism was actively suppressed, as were all related pagan creative works books, art, etc. The secrecy of our Tradition and beliefs became an obligation, a simple matter of survival. Gemistus Pletho — met Cosimo de Medici in Florence and influenced the latter’s decision to create a new Platonic Academy there. Cosimo subsequently appointed Marsilio Ficino as head of the newly formed Academy.
He proceeded to translate all Plato’s works into Latin, including the Enneads of Plotinus, and various other Neoplatonic writings. The group that met at the Villa Careggi perpetuated both the initiatic mysteries of the Neoplatonist tradition and the Theurgic initiation.
Besides this main philosophy, other parts of the western tradition were known by some members of the Academy. Both were progressively incorporated to the main beliefs and tradition of the Academy.
We have also to keep in mind that close contacts existed between other Academies in Italy, such as the academy of Venice and Naples Academy of Secrets. We invite you to go deeper on the subject by reading the historic section of this book. After the period of the Renaissance, the Theurgic Neoplatonic tradition continued to exist. This secret organization concealed the laudable object of propagating the Sciences and the love of Virtue.
The Fratelli Obscuri had been established in imitation of an older Society which had existed since before the fall of the Grecian Empire in the towns of Constantinople and Thessalonica. It was divided into three Grades. Eventually, the Fratelli Obscuri in England transformed their society into the Tobaccological Society. Freemasonry, and which seem related to this tradition.
Francis Bacon, Edmund Spenser, Christopher Marlowe and many another notables were among its initiates. Ochino, it may be mentioned, before traveling by way of Geneva to England, had narrowly escaped the trials of the Inquisition in Rome through the timely warning of another initiate, Cardinal Contarini. After further historic investigation it appears that this claim was rooted on some books from the Renaissance, knowledge coming from the previous organizations already mentioned, and a rite called “Rota Fulgens Solis.

Meeting in different places, working in very small groups, and frequently with the assistance of one or more non-members, they did not find it either convenient or desirable to utilise the formal temple workings of the Order, instead relying upon their own knowledge of medieval magical methods, through which they achieved some notable results and gained some unforgettable experiences.
