Which brings me to the reason I wrote this book. The Bulls, on their way to winning a sixth National Basketball Association championship, were caught in a power struggle and about to break up.
That was bad because the situation threatened to end the careers of two of the game's greatest guardians, Jordan and Winter, which in turn threatened the game itself. I wanted to know why.
And this book is an attempt to answer that. Back when he was forced to ride herd over the Detroit Pistons and all their gnarly egos, coach Chuck Daly used to have a saying: The game is simple, but the people are complicated.
The Pistons, by the way, won two championships and found that they had absolutely exhausted their relationships. It is an incredible testament to the great competitors who have built the Bulls that they won six and were able to keep going strong despite substantial baggage.
In short, what pushed the Bulls to the brink of a break up? There was no short answer, but if I had to come up with one, I would say, "The insecurities of general manager Jerry Krause. Jerry Krause. Phil Jackson. Scottie Pippen.
Michael Jordan. Jerry Reinsdorf. Tex Winter. Just as they're all responsible for all those sweet, ineffable moments of victory. And I am truly sorry to make a statement that displeases Jordan or Pippen, because they are the giant hearts of a great basketball team. But it's true.
Why did they loathe Krause? Pippen loathed Krause because the general manager had attempted to trade him, something that Pippen considered the severest disrespect.
Jordan also loathed Krause because he had attempted to trade Pippen and had been at odds with Jackson. Both of those things got in the way of the team's ability to compete, and above all, Jordan would brook nothing that interfered with competing. Thus, as the season wound to a conclusion, Bulls fans were faced with the power struggle and possible break up of the team.
It was a control thing between Krause and the team's two superstars, with Jackson and Winter and Reinsdorf sort of stuck trying to sort things out and move forward. Or something close to that. Which brings me back to my father's set shot.
He used to play in the semi-pro industrial leagues around southern West Virginia back in the late s and '40s. Because I was born later in his life, I never got to see him compete. But I heard tales of how he would lace up that shot, sometimes even when a teammate was wide open under the hoop. I heard that my father once played a game against the Original Celtics, the great barnstorming pro team of that era, and that he was absolutely delighted when Celtics star Davey Banks sat in the stands at midcourt and swished a shot on the first try.
I have no idea if these stories are true, but I believe they are, because I used to shoot with my father. He had been badly burned in , before I was born, and could no longer play anything more than h-o-r-s-e or a lightweight one-on-one. We had a 12 by 12 concrete court in the driveway, but he preferred to launch his shots by the giant elm in the side yard, a good 30 feet or more from the hoop. He'd fake one way or another, then pull up and while his eyes grew wide, he'd launch that two-handed set and give a little whoop as it hit, which was sort of his version of talking trash.
His real lesson for me, of course, was that life, just like a good game of h-o-r-s-e, needs wide parameters. Phil Jackson was talking with me about the power struggle one day when he said something that reminded me of my father. Jackson was talking about how Krause was always trying to establish some sort of control with Pippen and Jordan. I think it's good to have a sense of control, but you have to make your perimeters big.
An expansive thing, instead of making it narrow, and then people are bumping into those fences all the time. The Bogomils. A study in Balkan neo-Manichaeism. Orlov, Andrej.

Brill Therefore, at the beginning of the research, scholars are making attempts to gather information about the phenomenon of esotericism from all related humanistic disciplines, including ethnography, cultural studies, sociology, philosophy, religious studies, theology and others.
The most important among them are the historical and religious fields. The researchers are focused on intellectual history for the estimated task requires special methodology and relevant information for the work.
In particular, scholars refer to the investigation of historical and cultural context of esoteric studies origins and development, studying of historical forms of esotericism, the determination of the role they play in social life, while performing certain functions, as well as their impact on society. Some Ukrainian scientists have a different opinion. For example, Jurij zavgorodnij believes that the study of esotericism should begin on the basis of national traditions and peculiarities of understanding of this complex phenomenon in intellectual history.
Filosofska dumka, , 56— Speranskij2 and A. Sobolevskij3 has been known at the beginning of the 20th century. Nowadays there is no specialized research on this topic. Usually the texts that are related to the issues mentioned above describe separate aspects in the general historical context.
Thus, they do not have an expert assessment. There are also no analytical studies of the penetration methods of esoteric literature on the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania as well as on the territory of Ukraine, as the largest territorial unit in the Principality.
Unfortunately, the period of the 15th — 16th centuries is difficult to reconstruct. There are various points of view on the time and circumstances of the initial introduction of the Ukrainian, Belarusian and Lithuanian society to esoteric studies. The present historical data convincingly indicate that the beginning of the esoteric traditions dates back to the 15th century.
At that time, Eastern Orthodox Slavic culture had been influenced by the wide-spread, so-called erroneous and apocryphal literature on astrology, divination and magic. This literature was presented mainly by astrological and natural herbal books collections e.
They usually contained descriptions of simple astronomical operations, for example, determination of the lunar eclipse or Easter days recording. In this case a translation group in Kiev is also worth mentioning, for according to M. Speranskij and M. The collection Aristotelevi Vrata is the most interesting in the esotericism history discourse. At least, the researchers M. Speranskij, V.
Rayan5 believe 2 M. Aristotelevy vrata, ili Tainaia tainyh [From the history books renounced: URSS, , — Hebrew University, , — University Park, Pa: The scientist A. Sobolevskij6 confirms this thought in the work that is devoted to the analysis of the Ukrainisms in that collection.
This collection is also valuable because it contained some books, which we can call esoteric as their content was related to alchemy, astrology and witchcraft. Charles Stuart F. Burnett claimed that Hermes Trismegistus most likely was not the inventor of this magical practice, because the texts describing this practice, were widespread in Arabic and Latin-speaking surroundings.
Michael Psellos might be the author of this translation. Apparently, this literature came to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania mainly after the fall of Byzantium in and after the relocation of many Byzantine scholars to the Central and Western European territory. This is exactly where the Renaissance epoch had a great impact, which caused the extraordinary flash of esoteric and occult traditions.
Probably the influence of esoteric content on the texts was not only Byzantine, but also West European due to Jewish mediation. This happened as a great number of Jewish people from France, Germany and Moravia moved to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and settled down across the Eastern European state.
Astrological works, as well as the collection Aristotelevi Vrata and different kinds of herbal books and spellbooks were widespread among intellectuals, who were interested in Renaissance scientific achievements. The scientist from Kyiv Sharija Skara, may be very interesting for us in terms of this interest raise in astrological knowledge. However, in the 15th century there were not a great number of people who could be interested in astrological texts. The society of Eastern Slavs was not prepared for the 6 Sobolevskyi, Perevodnaja literatura, The popularity of this literature grew in the 16th century.
Also, a lot of valuable masterpieces in translation, related to the esoteric tradition, were made at that time. We have already mentioned them above. They read fortune on stars and planets, they watch days and hours. The official bans were not enforced on the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, although the close connection between the metropolitanates in Moscow and Kyiv made its impact and the Church in Kyiv accepted those bans. However, they were still in vain.
Forbidden astrological and spell works continued to spread because the allowed books were quite homogeneous and did not satisfy the curious readers. Moreover, almost the whole clergy did not know the modern literature and that is why they could not identify its apocryphal character.
Therefore, Old Church Slavonic collections contain magic charms, spell books, New Testament and Old Testament apocrypha along with the index of forbidden books. In a word, even literate people copied books without any understanding of its harm or good. The intellectual elite of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania had its own attitude to the esoteric knowledge, astrological in particular.
Duke Andrej Kurbskij — one of the best educated people of his time, was among them. According to this work, Andrej Kurbskij divided astrology into two parts: It is worth mentioning that A. Of course, it concerns Eastern Orthodox Slavs.
The problem appears bacause the most of known information came to us from texts that were written by Orthodox clergy. In its turn, the clergy forced out any suspicious activity and immediately judged doubtful intellectuals. Therefore, it is difficult to identify if those scientists practiced magic in reality or they became victims of political intrigues. Among all esoteric disciplines on the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, astrology took hold and developed properly. In biographical context, the personality of Kyiv scientist Sharija Skara is interesting to us.
The exact dates of his lifetime are unknown, but the references about him go back to the 15th century. Svjatskij was the first to oppose such interpretation. There are notes of Sharija left by Joseph of Volokamsk who said: Gromov, N. MGU, Russkaja panorama, This assumption was proposed by Julius Brutskus at the beginning of the 20th century. Israeli scientist M.
Taube supported this hypothesis. These texts were translated by Sharija into the Rutheni language according to the terminology of M.
Taube mentioned: All fragments are dated, they often mark the place of correspondence. Therefore, it can be said that zechariah Ben Aaron lived in Kyiv, at least from to His last known copy, fragments from the treatise of Averroes, dated May , was written in Damascus.
Taube proposes the hypothesis that Sharija left Kiev after the Crimean Tatars raid in At that time practically all Kyiv Jews settled in Crimea. In Sharija came to Damascus. This information is confirmed by the manuscripts that were found by M. Most texts attributed to Sharija allow us to consider him as the bearer of Jewish Provencal scientific tradition. According to this information we can assume that Sharija is most likely a Jewish scientist zechariah Ben Aaron ha-Kohen, who came to Kyiv around At that time the restoration of Kyiv started as the cultural and intellectual center.
We can find the information about the existence of the Kyiv intellectual center with lots of Jews in the 15th century private letter that is kept up to these days. The author of this letter is Karaite Solomon ben Abraham, who was writing from Kafa to his coreligionists in Kyiv in There he approaches local intelectual elite. The group of interested people gathered around his personality.
These were Denys Dionysius and Oleksij who were also famous for thier intelectual abilities. Astronomy was under control of the Orthodox clergy. Ryan expresses same opinion. This story is described in the document Piskarevskij letopisec Piskarevskiy chronicler.
There we find information on two adventurers who spoke the Slavonic language and claimed that they could create silver and gold. There they failed and eventually were tortured to death by pouring hot lead in their throats. A couple of successful predictions persuaded curious Novgorod citizens to familiarize themselves with excellent new book, brought by scholar from Kyiv. This book allegedly offered the opportunity to learn astrology and predict the day and hour of lunar and solar eclipse.
Concluding from our chronicles, these heavenly signs have always excited the curiosity of Novhorod citizens. His name appears even in liturgical books which contained lunar charts. They want to demonstrate the coming of the Paschalion which is not recorded by our chronicler as an exemple of this.
This provoked a huge dispute among Novgorod clergy. The reason was that the wizard presented the possible variant of postponing the end of the world. They were staying in Novgorod only for four months.
After some time Sharija went to Crimea. For example, Duke Kurbskij built his political concept referring to the content of Aristotelevi Vrata. Among scholars who were engaged in researching the ideas of hermeticism in medieval and early modern texts of Eastern Slavs, we should mention I.
The emergence of the first texts about Hermes Trismegist in the cultural environment slavia Orthodoxa occurred in the xV-xVI centuries.
In the Serbian version we find only few quotations that are attributed to Hermes Trismegist, in particular: I charge thee sky, the creation of great God, I charge thee with the voice of our father who sent the news before he established the entire world, I charge you in the only begotten his Word and spirit. We also should note that the Serbian text is similar to the apocryphal work On hellenic sages.
The majority of religious literature of the 15—16th centuries in the cultural environment among Orthodox Slavs was under the influence of hesychasm and apophaticism. This point was embodied by irrationality in arguments and dogmatism in assertions. Also the Christian point of view of the 5th and 6th centuries in the guise of negative theology claimed that it is more correctly to describe God using deniable definitions, and that our language is not developed enough to use it for describing the divine essence.
We can find similar statements in Slavic texts about Hermes. So the scribes were able to adjust the figure of the esoteric learning founder in Hellenistic period under their needs concerning the nature of the Holy Trinity being.
The ideas expressed on behalf of Hermes in Slavic manuscripts do not generally refute the key principles of hermetism regarding the existence of an infinite quantity of different meanings that contradict each other; the more confusing words and the more complicated one can express the symbols and interpret them, the better they fit for expressing the ideas of the Absolute.
Tytov, based on the context derived from the text of Palaea. After the death of his father and due to the family problems with his brothers, at the age of 45 he moved to Egypt, where he gained the fame of the sage and sorcerer who predicted the future. Moreover, in one of the fragments it is mentioned, that Hermes had an ability to create gold. This extract may indicate a certain alchemical knowledge he had.
In addition to life story and description of deeds conducted by Hermes Trismegist, the analyzed text provides us with his judgments of the Divine Trinity. The central idea of his assertion is the conception that the light of divine wisdom is primary to the light of the mind. This entire quotation is built in an apophatic style where the speaker claims the impossibility of the divine essence cognition by using mind only, and everything that was already said about God will not clarify his nature.
The second fragment, where we can find references on Hermes Trismegist, is the apocryphal text called On hellenic sages. It contains a quotation of Hermes Trismegist and a brief history note, where there is a note on his alchemical knowledge, too. Such information was presented in Orthodox scribes using a language they understood, i. As it is stated in the text, Hermes lived before the time of Abraham during the language division, and in his kingdom he commanded that one man should have one wife only and not several of them, as it was previously.
As a reward, the Lord sent him the iron pincers, so that he could forge the weapon against his enemies. This is the second time when Hermes is associated with blacksmithing in early modern East Slavic manuscripts. We believe that the lack of alchemical texts transformed the information about Hermes Trismegist as a discoverer of simple metals alchemical transmutations and gave a new shape to a true story, where he was a skillful blacksmith, who could work with gold, and these facts drew him to the jewelry master.
According to I. Franko, the author of the On hellenic sages manuscript used the information about Hermes Trismegist from Krekhivska Palaea. We consider such opinion to be not entirely correct, and more likely the sources of the information used in these texts were different. We suppose it was a text called Chronograph which was written in It only indicates that the author could read both works: The third note on Hermes in early modern East Slavic manuscript heritage is the anonymous astrological fragment of a 17th-century treatise, which describes the division of the Aphrodite weeks and hermes days.
Tytov notes that the doctrine of Hermes Trismegist on the divine nature of the day, or rather three parts of divine nature of the day and time in general, was formed in Hellenistic Egypt, namely in Alexandria in the 1st century BC. Here we should note that for ancient Romans the Julian calendar had a divine nature and was called natura dei. This calendar used such indications as: F — auspicious days, N — unfavorable days, C — neutral days.
In Slavic astrological manuscripts these days were marked as: This astrological peculiarity in Slavic manuscripts is described in the research of V. In particular, one of the texts that has a name: The figure of Hermes Trismegist is mentioned in the dialogue between the priest Eugene and Julian the Apostate.
Pointing out that Jesus was born twice — as a human first and then as a God. And Hermes was born three times in this story. Also there are other arguments appearing in the text that indicate the divine origin of Hermes and his connection with the Asclepius treatment. He also points out that Hermes Trismegist did not resurrect any single person, although he could cure them.
The above-mentioned fragments usher East Slavic texts about Hermes Trismegist into general hermetic discourse. All these texts were fragmented and did not affect the formation of esoteric knowledge inherent to hermeticism in the early modern age in the slavia Orthodoxa cultural environment.
Due to a large number of Greek literature pieces received during the mentioned period, it can be assumed that these were translations from Greek manuscripts.
The text The Book of Peter the Egyptian We should also note the fact that the old Slavic text is attributed to Peter the Egyptian, a person not of Slavic origin. Also Egypt in the Orthodox Slavic environment was associated with the land of all mysterious knowledge and its origins. Slavic manuscripts associate this country with the life of Hermes Trismegistus. Phoenix, , At least in a fragmentary written heritage.
In addition, we are also aware of a Hermes Trismegist iconography presented in Orthodox churches. This type of icons is called theological and didactic. We only know about four churches where iconography of Hermes was presented. Three of them are located in Russia and one is in Romania. The only well-preserved image remains on the royal gate on the territory of Hypatian Monastery from the 16th and 17th centuries Russia.
The others are in a very poor condition. From the information noted here we can conclude that these texts were fragmentary and did not affect the formation of esoteric knowledge inherent for hermetism in early modern cultural environment of the Orthodox Slavs. The reception of a large number of Greek works during this period suggests that these texts were translations from Greek manuscripts. For example, the text Egyptian Book of Peter the Egyptian The same could be stated about the texts that tell of Hermes Trismegistus and his stay in Egypt.

Vyvchennja indijskoji filosofiji v Ukrajini — It was during the long period of the peace which followed the 15th century Hussite revolution. The social and cultural status quo evolved from this revolution, which featured previously unknown religious and cultural plurality. Paracelsus, — , who was a lifelong dissident, tried to utilize this broader tolerance. He come to Moravia in the closing years of his life, namely between and , and tried to establish himself as a physician in the service of the Moravian aristocracy.
However, this effort was not at all successful and he had to leave for Hungary. Nevertheless, during his stay in Moravia, he managed to write one of his most important works: Astronomia magna.
This book is important even in the present context because it played a decisive role in the reception of his thinking in Bohemia, which began approximately thirty years after he had finished it. The first was medicine, or in the broader sense those disciplines which are nowadays labelled as natural sciences, such as astronomy, physics, etc. The main protagonist of the first domain was Thaddaeus Hageccius ab Hayk Thaddaeus Nemicus, — , who is relatively well known.

Bavor, who came from an impoverished noble family, could not afford to pay for his university studies, and thus was self-taught.
He translated the classical works of alchemical and hermetic tradition into the Czech language, i. Tabula smaragdina, Rosarium philosophorum and Turba philosophorum.
He was also interested in astronomy and gastronomy: His passion cost him his fortune and the love of his wife, who left him because of his laboratory passion. In , he was thrown in jail at Prague Castle because of his debts.
Man is the only creature to whom God has fully revealed his wisdom. But this wisdom is of such a nature that only certain exceptional people can become acquainted with it. These exceptional people were mainly sages of yore, for example, Moses and other biblical patriarchs.
He wanted the texts of this eminent man to be at the disposal of those Czechs who did not speak foreign languages. Bor Prague: Trigon, , 7—24, here esp. This case obviously referred to the traditional theme of encrypted communications of secrets, which was so popular in contemporary alchemy. In the Czech context, this was already expressed in the manuscript called Czech Alchemy, which was probably composed in the early 16th century.
Emphasis is partly placed on the confidentiality of the alchemy adept, that they should practise their art in secret.
According to the author of Czech Alchemy, the best way to do this was to establish a laboratory in the remote rooms of the house, where nobody went. If even such people understood, then philosophers and physicians would become completely unnecessary, because everyone would be able to achieve perfect knowledge by themselves.
I G 22; cf. It was published in Basel in the publishing house of Petrus Perna. But, he was also familiar with other famous works such as the Opus paramirum, Opus Paragranum, Archidoxies, and Chirurgia magna. Because man is composed of the same elements as the world, it is thus possible to vindicate even the reciprocal interaction and influence between man and the world.
This can be inferred due to the fact that he dedicated the greatest attention to characteristics of this work in his letter to William von Rosenberg. It consists of an idea, that human being should act in accoradance with the will of God. Andrew Weeks, ed. Essential Theoretical Writings Leiden: Brill, , Essential Theoretical Writings, Paracelsus left the world his many good works and certainly will not be forgotten.
It is also possible that he knew some manuscripts, whether authentic or pseudoepigraphic, at a time of burgeoning Paracelsian fashion, kickstarted by the publications beginning to circulate widely throughout Central Europe.
The Initial Reception of Paracelsus in Czech Alchemy 51 The strategy, which consisted of an effort to arouse the curiosity of one of the most generous benefactors of alchemy in his country,17 soon proved to be successful. This book is a summary of advice to leaders on how to properly, and fairly govern. It also contains the treatise with the title secrets of Theophrastus Paracelsus, which is in fact the compilation of some Paracelsian ideas.
Thereafter, it disappeared and re-emerged in the Netherlands city of Leyden. The Leyden University library downloadd the manuscript from the inheritance of Isaac Voss — , who was a famous antiquarian and collector of old manuscripts. He was also a passionate student of an old Czech alchemy, and while traveling through Europe to make the new business contracts, he also sought out old Czech alchemical manuscripts. Evans, Rudolf II.
Subsequently, he completed his studies with the submission of his doctoral examination, probably in Vienna. In the early s, he practised medicine in Prague with the aim that he might be subsequently moved to the Episcopal service, in which he worked in Olomouc and Wroclaw. Besides his stay in Moravia, which is still part of the Czech Republic today, he worked and wrote his work in the so-called Crowned lands, that is, the historical territories that belonged to Bohemia in the 16th century: Doubtless because of that, he was even originally educated as a Lutheran theologian.
However, he was also a physician and an alchemist. There have been thus far 33 of his works discovered, many of which exist only in one copy. The writings, which he wrote in the s, before his arrival in Prague in the year , where he worked as a doctor, mostly concerned theological issues such as the interpretation of the Gospel.
Span 19 For more about Span see: The Initial Reception of Paracelsus in Czech Alchemy 53 was also author of the famous herbarium,20 which was translated into Czech by Thaddaeus Hagecius — He was also a friend of the physician of Emperor Ferdinand I, Andreas Gall, who came from Trident and died soon after before the year He mentions, among other things, medicines based on internally applied antimony, which is a treatment that was recommended even by Paracelsus.
But he, among others, warned against excessively large doses of toxic substances. Mattioli and Andreas Gallus. In it, he mentions Mattioli, Gallus, and another Prague doctor, Georg Handsch — 23, as decisive supporters of the oral use of antimony. Pietro Andrea Matthiolo sanese Medico, con amplissimi discorsi, et comenti, et dottissime annotationi, et censure del medesimo interprete Venice: Nicolo de Bascarini, The Latin translation was published in Venice ten years after.
Vincente Valgrisi, The translation was issued in Prague in During many of the conversations with his friend, he was informed about Paracelsus, who was at his time the most important scholar and expert in medicine, who had managed to cure diseases very difficult to treat.
On the other hand, one can find ironic criticism in the spagirologia, directed against the followers of Paracelsus, for who the teachings of their master was only a welcome means to earn money.
It shows a well-dressed man in his prime 43 years of age with a confident expression. In his left hand he holds a flower, and right hand rests on a book, obviously prepared to thumb through it. Fritsch, , A3 v: Although it was probably originally about metaphysical principles which were meant to complement the Aristotelian doctrine of substance and form, gradually it gained more and more material content.
Many alchemists understood it even materially and set it in contrast with Empedoclean-Galen-Aristotelian theory of the four elements as the fundamental constituents of matter.
He considered sulphur, mercury, and salt as the principal elements which physically compose a combination of elements, which determines the quality of the composite. B4 r; C2 r. It is also possible that Span uses the term as a traditional mythological metaphor for the description of the alchemical process.
So the Paracelsian semantic context could be missing. Karger, , ; Fink , ; ; Pagel, Paracelsus, 88, , , , Jahrhunderts Berlin and Boston: De Gruyter Both had a broad range of interests. Because of this, both basically avoided complicated and ambiguous Paracelsian terminology, and also the very complex, even chaotic, Paracelsian cosmogony.
Judging by the work and writings of these men, it is clear that they approached the legacy of Paracelsian thought in a non-dogmatic and sober, or even pragmatic, fashion.
Thus, they realized the limits of conventional medicine and traditional alchemy, and tried to, more or less successfully, overcome them. References Bor, D.
