In Platonism, and especially Neoplatonism, the goal of Henosis (Ancient Greek: ἕνωσις "unity, oneness") is union with what is fundamental in reality: the One (Τὸ Ἕν), the Source or Monad.
The Neoplatonic concept has precedents in the Greek mystery religions[1] as well as parallels in Oriental philosophies.[2] It is further developed in the Corpus Hermeticum, in Christian theology, soteriology and mysticism and is an important factor in the historical development of monotheism during Late Antiquity.
