Thessalos of Tralles – On the Virtues of Herbs


Thessalos of Tralles: On the Virtues of Herbs is the earliest extant astrological botanical text, detailing the herbs sacred to each zodiacal sign and planet, with instructions for the correct times and places to pick the plants and formulas for making cures. The introduction tells how a young student from Asia Minor traveled to Alexandria for medical schooling, and then received this information during a divine revelation vision in an Egyptian temple in Thebes. Demetra shares some of the information from this text for the first time, based upon her original translations from ancient Greek.

Virtues of Herbs

It has been difficult for me to find correlations between the planets and herbs. This class was helpful in understanding the ancient perspectives. I hope there will be more to come on this topic.
