Summary:

This is Volume 6 (The Chaldaean Oracles of Zoroaster) of 7 Volumes. From the Preface: "THESE Oracles are considered to embody many of the principal features of Chaldaean philosophy. They have come down to us through Greek translations and were held in the greatest esteem throughout antiquity, a sentiment which was shared alike by the early Christian Fathers and the later Platonists. The doctrines contained therein are attributed to Zoroaster, though to which particular Zoroaster is not known; Historians give notices of as many as six different individuals all bearing that name, which was probably the title of the Prince of the Magi, and a generic term."
