Abstract

Hermetism's influence on early modern magic has frequently been challenged since the pioneering work of Frances Yates. This article argues that hermetic ideas did exert significant influence over early modern magical systems, particularly through the figure of Cornelius Agrippa. Rather than borrowing from hermetism's approach to magic, however, Agrippa was influenced by certain hermetic ideas of gnosis.
