Book: The Golden Verses Of Pythagoras by Antoine Fabre Dolivet

This is english translation of The Golden Verses of Pythagoras by Antoine Fabre d'Olivet (December 8, 1767-March 25, 1825) a French author poet, and composer whose biblical and philosophical hermeneutics infuenced many occultists, such as Eliphas Lvi and Gerard Encausse (Papus), and Ren Gunon.

The Golden Verses of Pythagoras are a collection of moral exhortations. They comprise 71 lines written in hexameter verse and are traditionally attributed to Pythagoras.

The exact origins of the golden verses are unknown and there are varying opinions regarding their dating. It appears that the verses may have been known as early as the third century BC but their existence as we know them cannot be confirmed prior to the fifth century AD.

The golden verses enjoyed great popularity and were widely distributed in late antiquity being often quoted. Their renown persisted during the medieval ages and into the renaissance.
The Neoplatonists used the golden verses as part of their preparatory program of moral instruction and a number of neoplatonic commentaries on the verses are extant.
