Thoth

(thŏth, tōt), in Egyptian religion, god of wisdom and magic. A patron of learning and of the arts, he was credited with many inventions, including writing, geometry, and astronomy. Perhaps originally a moon god, Thoth was also a messenger and scribe for the gods. He was identified by the Greeks with Hermes and as such was specifically named Hermes Trismegistus (see Hermetic booksHermetic books,
ancient metaphysical works dealing essentially with the idea of the complete community of all beings and objects. Authorship of the books was attributed to the Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth, whose name was sometimes translated into Greek as Hermes Trismegistus

). He was variously represented as an ibis, as an ibis-headed man, or as a baboon.

Thoth

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

In Graeco-Roman times, the Egyptian Moon God Djehuti, or Zehuti, took the form Thoth (pronounced "Toe-th"). He was associated with Hermes. In Egypt, Thoth was patron of literature, science, wisdom, and inventions. He was also the spokesman for the gods and Keeper of the Records.

Thoth is depicted with the head of an ibis and, many times, wearing a solar disk sitting on a crescent on his head. Thoth also was occasionally depicted as a dog-headed ape, suggesting that he may have been derived from a fusion of two earlier lunar deities. He is usually counted as the oldest son of Ra but sometimes as the child of Geb and Nut.

Thoth had all knowledge and wisdom. He invented mathematics, astronomy, magic, medicine, music, and all the arts and sciences. He was also the inventor of hieroglyphs and, as such, became known as "Lord of Holy Words." As Moon God, it was his job to measure time.

A tarot deck designed by Aleister Crowley, with the art executed by Frieda Hariss, is known as the Crowley Thoth Tarot.

En este sentido -por el cual la hermeneutica es un angel, es decir, literalmente un mensajero-, asentado por Platon, la hermeneutica aparece relacionada con la interpretacion de los oraculos (Politico, 260d-e; 290c) y, al menos en parte, con la poesia, ya que tambien los poetas son mensajeros de los dioses (Ion, 534e); a este ambito se refiere la etimologia tardia que hace remontar la hermeneutica a Hermes, el mensajero de los dioses, correspondiente al Thot egipcio, inventor de la escritura, y al Mercurio romano, dios de los intercambios, del comercio y protector de los ladrones.
