Describing the ancient magical rituals of Egypt, Assyria, and Chaldaea, Iamblichus's primary work is often viewed as one of the mystic cornerstones of Neoplatonism and esoteric studies, which has been studied by thinkers of all faiths and backgrounds over the centuries. This work brings together not only Iamblichus's work, but a number of other Neoplatonic philosophers as well.
