The web portal is mainly devoted to the History of Medieval Philosophy but includes also Renaissance texts. It contains two main sections:
- Media Aetas → Hermetica, Mystica Philosophica, Philosophia Orientalis, Sapientia veterum
- Nova Aetas → Naturalias, Politica
Each section provides bibliographic records of works of philosophical importance.
The most relevant part is represented by texts attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, following the research initiated and conducted by Paolo Lucentini.
The database consists of digitized microfilms (about 8,000 frames) of manuscripts from the Hermetic Archive held by the Library of the Università
degli Studi di Napoli “L’Orientale”.
