Description

The Chaldean Oracles have survived as fragmentary texts from the 2nd century AD, and consist mainly of Hellenistic commentary on a single mystery-poem (which may have been compilations from several oracular sources, considering the random subject changes) that was believed to have originated in Chaldea (Babylonia). They appear to be a combination of Neoplatonic elements with others that were Persian or Babylonian in origin.

This book has 49 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1895.

Production notes: This ebook of The Chaldean Oracles of Zoroaster was published by Global Grey in 2018.
