[64A to 79B] The divine Iamblichus however, does not think that a history of this kind pertains to what is here proposed to be considered. For Plato is not now speaking about atheistical men, but about such as are wise, and able to converse with the Gods. Nor does he speak of such as are dubious about the works of piety; but to such as wish to be saved by those who are the saviours of wholes, he delivers the power of prayer, and its admirable and supernatural perfection which transcends all expectation. But to this conversion prayer is of the greatest utility. For it attracts to itself the beneficence of the Gods, through those ineffable symbols which the father of souls has disseminated in them. It likewise unites those who pray with those to whom prayer is addressed; conjoins the intellect of the Gods with the words of those who pray; excites the will of those who perfectly comprehend good to the abundant communication of it; is the fabricator of divine persuasion; and establishes in the Gods all that we possess. Tim. "But, O Socrates, all such as participate but in the least degree of temperance, [i.e. wisdom] in the impulse to every undertaking, whether small or great, always invoke divinity."

Elements of Theology
Partial Edition and Study:
    J. Dashian, (Minor Literary Studies), Vienna 1895, pp. 23-48, 147-161; cf. Proclus, The Elements of Theology , ed. E.R. Dodds, (2nd ed.) Oxford: 1963, pp. xxix, xlii.
Unlike all other texts in this survey which were translated directly from the Greek, the translation of PROCLUS produced in 1248 by the monk Simeon of Garni was made through the intermediary of a Georgian translation. Dashian published excerpts from the text and observed that it deviates considerably from the Greek original. This is not surprising, given the fact that the early twelfth-century Georgian translation by John Petritsi was itself not very literal to begin with. Even more curious is the fact that Simeon’s Armenian version was translated back into Georgian in 1757.

Chapter 3
Proclus' Elements
The book is Proclus' Elements of Theology . By 1017 this fifth-century text had likely made its way to Dar al-Hikma. It would have been nestled in the cabinet beside its more popular (and pseudonymous) abridgment, Aristotle's Book of Causes
The Elements of Theology Elements may be the most orderly proof of immortality ever composed by a Hellenic philosopher. For readers who've not seen the text, it will be instructive at this time to study a few Elements which abstract Proclus' argument. This presentation will pass quickly to a critique. The critique brings Proclus' image of the soul into focus, as it disentangles the knot of his immortality argument.
We take up the seamed volume. Leather opens to paper, paper opens to words. The text of Proclus' Elements consists of two hundred and eleven Neoplatonic propositions, organized by a method similar to that which mathematicians use in the construction of mathematical proofs. When a mathematician wants to prove a novel theorem, he uses in his proof theorems which have been proved before. Those axioms are foundational, in the sense that they are uncontroversial and accepted as authoritative by the mathematical community.

St. Proclus of Cyzicus: AGAINST NESTORIUS
Translated from the Coptic by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge.
THE HOMILY WHICH PROKLOS, BISHOP OF CYZICUS, PRONOUNCED IN THE GREAT CHURCH OF CONSTANTINOPLE, WHEN NESTORIUS THE HERETIC WAS PRESENT, CONCERNING HIS CONTEMPTIBLE DOGMA, ON THE SUNDAY WHICH PRECEDED THE HOLY FORTY DAYS. Very great are the riches of the nourishment of the wisdom of the grace of God. Numberless are the benefits of the gathering together of spiritual beings. Honourable is the merchandise of the market of the Church. Joyful is the festival before the altar. Exceedingly splendid is the profit of the traffic with the Saviour. Indescribable are the ungrudged riches of the nails of the Saviour. Great is the pleasure of the gifts which appertain to the beings of heaven. This love knoweth not poverty, for it is Christ Who giveth this charity. And if thou wishest, O beloved, and wilt look into the Holy Scriptures, thou shalt have knowledge of the riches wich are immeasurable [and shall understand that] He giveth great gifts. For He wisheth to make thee to know this with careful exactness, and the forms and ways in which He doeth this are various. For from the beginning our Lord Jesus Christ hath not ceased to do good to the race of men. Having banished [Gen.3:24] the first [man], that is to say, Adam, to the place of one who hath been condemned to punishment, He took him and seated him with Him upon the throne in the heavens.

PROCLUS
The emergence of an increasingly powerful hierarchy in the expanding Christian movement threatened the political, social and philosophical foundations of the ancient Mediterranean world. During the second, third and fourth centuries of this era, church hierarchy came to justify itself as a theocracy without universal or equal access to the Divine. The attendant doctrine of salvation supported the subordination of women in society and their exclusion from religious office, where once they had been the backbone of Roman civil institutions and guardians of its collective religious life. The Graeco-Roman philosophical traditions, which advocated freedom of thought on the basis of the equality of human beings as seekers of divine wisdom, felt the growing pressure of dogmatism based upon the assumed identity of the ecclesiastical structure with a spiritual hierarchy. The neo-Platonic movement founded by Ammonius Saccas, clearly articulated by Plotinus and disseminated by Porphyry, was tied to an understanding of the theurgic significance of classical myths and ceremonies and of the universal truths of the Mysteries. The emperor Julian attempted to refound the theology implied by the Mysteries, but his death in A.D. 363 after only three years' reign marked the end of all such attempts. Nevertheless, the Platonic Academies of Athens and Alexandria were inspired to new heights of philosophical activity by the neo-Platonists.

Ancient and Medieval Philosophy - series 1 - volume 26

(13-16 MAI 1998)
Avec l'assistance de C. LUNA et A.F. METTRAUX Presses Universitaires de Louvain In his Platonic Theology, Proclus offers a systematic exposition of the theology of Plato. Integrating within the 'scienti-fic' framework of the Parmenides all the theological doctrines which are scattered throughout the Plato's dialogues, Proclus develops the Platonic doctrines on the One, the gods and the hierarchical procession of reality. The present volume, which celebrates the completion of the critical edition of Proclus' Platonic Theology by H.-D. Saffrey and L.G. Westerink (+), contains thirty-one contributions by leading scholars in the field of Neoplatonic studies. They present their views on the organisation and principles of Proclus' theology, on the hermeneutics of Platonic dialogues, on the antecedents of this theological synthesis, and on its posterity, from Proclus' immediate successors through the Byzantine, Arabic and Latin Middle Ages. This monumental volume, which is the result of three decades of dedicated scholarly research on the philosophy of Proclus, will stand for many years as an indispensable guide for all those interested in Neoplatonic studies.

Proclus [pr O u s]
Pronunciation Key
Proclus , Neoplatonic philosopher, b. Constantinople. He studied at Alexandria and at Athens, where he was a pupil of the Platonist Syrianus, whom he succeeded as a teacher. As a partisan of paganism he was forced to leave Athens, but he returned at the end of a year. A synthesizer of Neoplatonic doctrines, Proclus gave the philosophy its most systematic form. He kept the elements of Plotinus, but introduced a principle of triadic development in the series of emanations; the three stages are an original, an emergence from the original, and a return in a lower form to the original. Proclus differed from Plotinus in regard to the origin of matter, which he held to emerge from the first emanation rather than from the plastic forces. Among his writings are commentaries on several Platonic dialogues and two treatises, On Plato's Theology and Institutes of Theology.

53. Spira Solaris, The Chaldean Oracles, Proclus And Kepler. Spira Solaris Archytas-
From this viewpoint it was a logical step to consider next the contents ofthe Chaldean Oracles, held in such high esteem by proclus and others.
In considering the astronomical elements in ancients works it seemed advisable to examine the origins of later scientific advances associated in one way or another with these earlier sources. This was especially so with respect to the contributions made by both Galileo and Kepler in light of their acknowledged use of materials provided in Plato's . But this was only one facet of a much wider investigation. Another concerned technical details long-buried in the Babylonian astronomical cuneiform texts of the Seleucid Era [310 BC - 75 A.D.] - information that only surfaced during the latter part of the previous century and has yet to see the light of day even now. Irrespective of how much or how little this neglected corpus of technical knowledge is regarded, there still remains the leading question why Babylonian astronomy was so obviously concerned with synodic motion and varying orbital velocity . It was this question that generated sufficient interest in astronomy and mathematics to apply the general synodic relationship in Parts I and II of the present work. As shown in these earlier sections, this was the vital step that provided the necessary understanding to the "Golden Section" and the

ASTRONOMER proclus OF LYCIA (DIADOCHUS) (fl. 411 486 AD) He died in Athens in485. One of the craters on the moon has been named proclus in his honour.

Ancient Greek Scientists
Neoplatonist philosopher, mathematician and astronomer, Proclus was born in Constantinople and reared in Xanthus, in Lycia. After an early education in Xanthus and Alexandria, under Orion Leonas, Hero (mathematics) and Heliodorus (Aristotelian philosophy), he went to Athens. There he studied with Plutarch of Athens and his disciple Syrianus (Platonic philosophy), eventually succeeding the latter as the head of the Academy. He was influenced by the philosophy of the Pythagoreans, and in turn influenced many Western philosophers: Hegel, for example, admired him greatly. He died in Athens in 485. One of the craters on the moon has been named "Proclus" in his honour.
His principal writings are:
"Hypotheses in astronomy": Treatise on the systems of Hipparchus, Aristarchus and Ptolemy. This work is divided into five parts:
A) Description of the method of calculating the apparent diameter of the sun by the use of Hero's water clock and the information provided by Pappus.
B) Proof of the geometric equivalence of epicycles and eccentrics.

READ: Homily 8: On the Transfiguration of Our Lord and God Saviour, Jesus Christ
PROCLUS was one of the most acccomplished, if not the most accomplished preacher in the post-Chrysostom era in Constantinople, achieving a high level of popularity. Whether we as modern readers can fully appreciate the rhetorically-orientated nature of his preaching or not, the style and contents of his homilies are both impressive and of theological importance respectively. In particular, his homilies are a valuable source for the christological issues of the time, and formed an important basis for the subsequent formulation of the orthodox faith at Chalcedon in 451. Sadly, and in all probability due to Proclus' role as conciliator rather than active participant in the dogmatic disputes of his time, his work has not received the same attention as that of the more prominent players, such as Cyril of Alexandria. In a translation that conveys the highly rhetorical flavour of the original, Jan H. Barkhuizen makes accessible for the first time in English a substantial portion of the corpus, namely the twenty-seven homilies which deal with aspects of the life of Christ. This translation will go a long way towards creating a greater appreciation of Proclus as preacher and exponent of the orthodox faith of his times. Jan H. Barkhuizen is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Ancient Languages, University of Pretoria. He has written variously on the homilies of Proclus and on the

Homily 8 On the transfiguration of our Lord and God and Saviour, Jesus Christ Come, friends, and let us today, without hesitation, touch on the treasures of the gospels, in order that we may from there, as is our custom, draw wealth, which is distributed in abundance, and is nowhere ever exhausted. Come to the all-wise one who guides us well on our way, and let us again follow Luke, in order that we may see Christ ascending a high mountain, as well as Peter and James and John, whom he is taking along as witnesses of his divine transfiguration. For it says that the Lord took aside those surrounding Peter and ascended a high mountain. A high mountain, on which Moses and Elijah conversed with Christ. A high mountain, on which the Law and the Prophets conversed with Grace. A high mountain, on which was Moses, who slaughtered the lamb of pascha, and sprinkled its blood on the doorposts of (the houses of) the Hebrews. A high mountain, on which was Elijah, who cut the ox in pieces .in the presence of those people

The Puritans, who aimed at setting up the Genevan model, objected; and the visitation articles of the bishops in Charles I.'s time make frequent inquisition England. *nto tne negject °f the clergy to obey the law in this matter. With " the profane, ungodly, presumptuous multitude " (to quote Baxter's Saint's Rest, 1650, pp. 344, 345), however, these " processions and perambulations " appear to have been very popular, though " only the traditions of their fathers." However this may be, the Commonwealth made an end of them, and they seem never to have been revived; Sparrow, in his Rationale upon the Book of Common Prayer (London, 1668), speaks of "the service formerly appointed in the Rogation days of Procession." Among the processions that survived the Reformation in the English Church was that of the sovereign and the Knights of the Garter on St George's day. This was until Charles II.'s time a regular rogation, the choristers in surplices, the gentlemen of the royal chapel in copes, and the canons and other clergy in copes preceding the knights and singing the litany. In 1661, after the Restoration, by order of the sovereign and knights companions in chapter " that supplicational procession " was " converted into a hymn of thanksgiving." Akin to this procession also are the others connected with royal functions; coronations, funerals. These retained, and retain, many pre-Reformation features elsewhere fallen obsolete. Thus at the funeral of George II. (1760) the body was received at the door of the Abbey by the dean and prebendaries in their copes, attended by the choir, all carrying lighted tapers, who preceded it up the church, singing.
