Corpus Hermeticum

Only available in Latin and from the 2nd century by Marsilio Ficino, 1471 CE. A foundation for many of the magical grimoires of the middle ages and renaissance. It is presented as dialogues in which master, Hermes Trismegistus ("thrice-greatest Hermes"), enlightens a disciple. This is the foundation of Hermeticism discussing the divine, the cosmos, mind, and nature. Some touch upon alchemy, astrology, and related concepts. Parts of the Hermetica appeared in the 2nd-century Gnostic library found in Nag Hammadi.

Excerpt

Seeing within myself an immaterial vision that came from the mercy of God, I went out of myself into an immortal body, and now I am not what I was before. I have been born in mind!
