But in order to understand later Western esoteric traditions, one must understand what came before them. And with that, let us turn to the emergence, in this Greco-Roman ambience, of Hermetic, Gnostic, and Christian forms of esotericism in late antiquity. NOTES 1 See Garth Fowden, The Egyptian Hermes: A Historical Approach to the Late Pagan Mind (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1986), xxiii. 2 See Fowden, Egyptian Hermes, 46—50. 3 Fowden, Egyptian Hermes, 94. 4 See Martin Nillson, The Dionysiac Mysteries (Lund: Svenska Institute, 1957), 11.
8 See Moshe Idel, Absorbing Perfections: Kabbalah and Interpretation (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2002), 419. 9 Antoine Faivre, Access to Western Esotericism (Albany: SUNY Press, 1994), 10—15. 10 See Wouter Hanegraaff, “Empirical Method in the Study of Esotericism,” in Method and Theory in the Study of Religion 7 (1995) 2: 99-129; Hanegraaff, “On the Construction of ‘Esoteric Traditions,”’ in A. Faivre and W. , New Approaches to the Study of Religion (Berlin: DeGruyter, 2004). 11 See Kocku von Stuckrad, “Western Esotericism: Towards an Integrative Model of Interpretation,” in Religion 35 (2005) 78—97, in particular, 88—89, 92—93.
But throughout most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, there had remained almost no acknowledgment in academia that “esotericism” or “Western esoteric traditions” could be seen as constituting a whole area of study, that such diverse traditions or movements as alchemy, astrology, magic, Rosicrucianism, and theosophy all bear certain defining elements in common and should be considered in the larger historical context of Western esoteric traditions from antiquity onward. This situation, however, most emphatically has begun to change.
