It occurred to me that those reading my “Flower of Fire” essay from the Hekate devotional volume (available here) may find this site useful. It’s a synoptic presentation of the extant fragments of the Oracles in the English translations by Majercik and by Wescott together with the German translation by Michel Tardieu after Hans Lewy. There used to be a site with the Greek text of the fragments, but it seems to be defunct.

It has come to my attention that a number of people have been having difficulty downloading the PDF file of my dissertation, “The Metaphysics of Polytheism in Proclus.” My apologies to those who have had such problems. As a result, I have added to the Philosophy page an MS Word file of the dissertation for those unable to download the PDF. Please note that the pagination in this file does not correspond to the PDF, which is the version of record.

I’ve posted my second article from Dionysius, “The Gods and Being in Proclus”, to the Philosophy page.

The Theology page has been updated with the link to an article of mine appearing in the May 2009 issue of Eye of the Heart, a journal published in print and online by La Trobe University. The article is “The Book of the Celestial Cow: A Theological Interpretation,” and can be read profitably in conjunction with the relevant entries in the Encyclopedia. I hope you enjoy it!
The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago is making available, for free, T. G. Allen’s authoritative translation of this essential text, the only complete edition in English. I’d advise anyone seriously interested in Egyptian theology to take advantage of this offer while it lasts. The link’s at the bottom of the page.

I wrote a brief review of an edited volume on the self in ancient and medieval philosophy for Metapsychology Online.
