Article Summary

The Chaldaean Oracles were a collection of revelatory verses purportedly compiled in the second century ad. Along with the Orphic texts, Neoplatonists regarded them as divine words. When the Oracles appear in philosophical works, they lend support to select cosmological, metaphysical or psychological propositions which have already been formulated.
