"Enoch was the first who invented books and different sorts of writing. The ancientGreeks declare that Enoch is the same as Mercury Trismegistus [Hermes], and thathe taught the sons of men the art of building cities, and enacted some admirablelaws...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 theyshould fast, that they should pray, that they should give alms, votive offerings, andtenths. He reprobated abominable foods and drunkenness, and appointed festivalsfor sacrifices to the Sun, at each of the Zodiacal Signs."− Hebraeus
The First Book.
O my Son, write this first Book, both for Humanity's sake, and for Piety towards God.
For there can be no Religion more true or just, than to know the things that are; and to acknowledge thanksfor all things, to him that made them, which thing I shall not cease continually to do.What then should a man do, O Father, to lead his life well, seeing there is nothing here true ?Be Pious and Religious, O my Son, for he that doth so, is the best and highest Philosopher; and with− outPhilosophy, it is impossible ever to attain to the height and exactness of Piety or Religion.
