Summary:

This is Volume IX of the Echoes from the Gnosis series. The Chaldaean Oracles have survived as fragmentary texts from the 2nd century AD, and consist mainly of Hellenistic commentary on a single mystery-poem that was believed to have originated in Chaldea (Babylonia). The origins of the texts are unknown and mysterious. Some have claimed that the Chaldaean Oracles, in the form in which they survive, were attributed to Julian the Theurgist and his father, Julian the Chaldaean.
