Alexandria, Cults and Mysteries

Alan Cardew, PhD
(Audio: 1 hr 18 min)
Ancient Alexandria was the Open Center of Antiquity, bringing together the religious traditions of the ancient world, attempting to find a spiritual worldview underlying all systems of belief. Many systems and philosophy were fused together in the libraries of Alexandria. University of Essex Professor Alan Cardew examines some elements of the Alexandrian synthesis, including Alchemy, Hermeticism and the cult of Serapis.
