Marconis’ Notes for the "Conferences", are on the Perfectionment of Man, search for Truth, love of Justice; and the practise of all the virtues. These may be greatly extended; the Greek Theurgists had great veneration for him, and many hymns of his are preserved, and indicate a magical knowledge of the Spiritual Forces to which they are addressed. The Mysteries of Eleusis were founded on his System, and dedicated to Ceres and Proserpine.
