"The main Gospel of the Trismegistic Gnosis is contained in a sacred sermon which bears in Greek the title "Poemandres."
This may perhaps have been originally the Greek transliteration of an Egyptian name (ii., 50); but from the treatise itself it is manifest that it HERMES, was understood by the Greek followers of this Gnosis to mean "The Shepherd of Men," or " Man-shepherd."
This Shepherd was no man, but Divine Humanity or the Great Man or Mind, the inspirer of all wisdom and hierophant of all spiritual initiations." - By George Robert Stow Mead, Hermes (Trismegistus.) - The Hymns of Hermes
