is a work in progress. The owner (Phainolis) is an author, enthusiast of dead languages, and PhD candidate in the history of ancient religions. This website will host articles, original translations, and reconstructed rituals, with an emphasis on Neoplatonic theurgy (Iamblichus, Proclus, etc.) and related ancient literature (HermeticaChaldean Oracles, the Greek magical papyri, etc.).
