On the occasion of the release of the French translation of Edgar Wind’s Pagan Mysteries in the
Renaissance, Pierre Hadot granted an interview. In a conversation with Jeannie Carlier, he shared his
interpretation of the book, considering it an important contribution to the understanding of the
spirit of the Renaissance. In the note, I try to demonstrate that traces of his acquaintance with
Wind’s opus vitae date back to earlier times.
