The Corpus Hermetica
Attributed to Hermes Trismestigustus
"Enoch was the first who invented books and different sorts of writing. The ancient
Greeks declare that Enoch is the same as Mercury Trismegistus [Hermes], and that
he taught the sons of men the art of building cities, and enacted some admirable
laws...He discovered the knowledge of the Zodiac, and the course of the Planets;
and he pointed out to the sons of men, that they should worship God, that they
should fast, that they should pray, that they should give alms, votive offerings, and
tenths. He reprobated abominable foods and drunkenness, and appointed festivals
for sacrifices to the Sun, at each of the Zodiacal Signs."
