Occult Origins of European Esoteric Mysticism and Alchemy – ROBERT SEPEHR
Western esotericism is a term which categorizes a wide range of loosely related ideas and movements largely distinct from orthodox Judeo-Christian religion. The earliest recognized traditions were disseminated from the Eastern Mediterranean during Late Antiquity, where Hermeticism, Gnosticism, and Neoplatonism developed as schools of thought distinct from what became mainstream Christianity.

Renaissance Europe saw increasing interest in many of these older ideas, with various intellectuals combining “pagan” philosophies with the Kabbalah and Christian philosophy, with the more socially controversial aspects going underground as alchemy.
