The Chaldaean Oracles and the Transmundane Sun

Image result for ancient depictions of the sun

 

The Neoplatonic philosopher Proclus tells us that the Chaldaeans believed that in addition to our “intramundane” visible sun, there is a “transmundane” sun that serves as a pattern to our sun.

This notion is very interesting and confirms the idea that in paganism there is a god “behind” the sun who is worshiped under the aegis of the sun.

The notion of a second sun also connects to the idea of a link between hell and the sun.

Does anyone know of a link between the sun and hell in the Church’s tradition?

If so, please leave some intel in the comments.

  1. Dugin is intriguingly very interested in ancient Persian/Iranian concept of the Light. He clearly favors Persia over Ancient Greece and maybe even Christian Roman Empire unlike mainstream Orthodox Christian Byzantinephiles.
