A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

PHILOSTRATUS wrote a life of Apqllonius of Tyana, chiefly from some memoirs entrusted to him by the wife of the Emperor Severus (A.D. 293-211), the literary Julia Domna. This life shows us a vagrant philosopher, vegetarian, teetotal, celibate, barefoot, long-haired, linen-clad (dress or food made from an animal were equally abhorrent to him). He wanders over the world, through Asia Minor to Babylon, where he speaks with the Magi, and thence to India, where he visits a Brahman monastery. He travels up the Nile to talk with the Gymnosophists or Naked Philosophers of Aethiopia. He is found in Rome, Athens, and Ephesus, in Spain and Sicily. He converses with the Kings of Parthia and India, with the emperors Vespasian, Titus, and Nerva. He is brought before Nero's prefect Tigellinus and finally tried for treason before Domitian, from whose tribunal he miraculously vanishes and appears to two disconsolate disciples at Puteoli. He performs miracles, foretells the future, and raises a woman from the dead in circumstances that curiously recall the raising of the widow's son at I`Tain. He despises wealth, power, and all material goods : he discourses on elephants, maternal love in animals, fables, painting, sorcerers, flute playing ; he denounces hunting, animal sacrifice, and gladiatorial shows, abounds in remarks that are edifying, if not profound, and preaches a Hellenism reconciled and combined with the wisdom of the East. The correct label for him is ` NeoPythagorean '. He gathers disciples round him. Some doubt whether he died at all ; one story tells that he vanished mysteriously in a temple amid the chanting of virgins, later reappearing to convince a disbeliever in immortality. After death he is honoured with temples.
It is uncertain what foundation of fact underlies this airy construction. But Apollonius, though unmentioned by any contemporary, seems really to have taught and preached a higher and more spiritual life to the paganism of the first century. No one can quarrel with the doctrine of the one
