Abstract


Hermias Alexandrinus in the Middle Age and in the Renaissance: some remarks

This paper aims at retracing some aspects of Hermias’ fortune in the literature of Byzantium and the Italian Renaissance, by reconsidering a long passage of Psellus about Hermias’ interpretation of Plato’s doctrine of the hyperouranios world (Phaedr. 246e - 247a). In addition, the author outlines Hermias’ influence on Marsilius Ficinus: in his youth, the Italian
Neoplatonist attempted a translation of Hermias, but being unsatisfied with it he left it unpublished. Nonetheless, Ficinus later employed at greater length Hermias in the Theologia Platonica. Considerable attention is given to the manuscript tradition of Hermias, in view of a new critical edition which will be published in cooperation with Carlo Martino
Lucarini.
