The Emerald Tablet, also known as Smaragdine Table, Tabula Smaragdina, or The Secret of Hermes, is a text purporting to reveal the secret of the primordial existence and its forms. It claims to be the work of Hermes Trismegistus (“Hermes the Thrice-Great”), a legendary Egyptian sage, identified with the Egyptian god Thoth, the Roman god Mercury and the Greek god Hermes.
This cryptic text was highly regarded by European alchemists as the foundation of their art, in particular the Hermetic tradition.
