What is Alchemy

Alchemy is an ancient spiritual science, and one of three disciplines that comprise the Hermetic tradition. Whether conducted in a physical laboratory or one’s own psyche, this so-called “royal art” is concerned with transmuting the “gross” into the “perfect” through a series of processes collectively referred to as the “Magnum Opus” or “Great Work”. Completion of the Great Work purportedly yields the “philosopher’s stone” or the “elixir”, a legendary substance variously claimed to transmute base metals into gold, rejuvenate the body and confer immortality. Although clearly not fundamentally materialistic, alchemy has undeniably influenced material science, as the predecessor of chemistry. Alchemical tinctures also informed a new field of medicine; homeopathy is based on the work of Paracelsus, a 16th century alchemical philosopher. As the late C.G. What does Alchemy mean now?

I testify that my master, Pythagoras, the Italian, master of the wise and chief of the Prophets, had a greater gift of God and of Wisdom than was granted to any one after Hermes.

A Threefold Alchemical Journey Through the Book of Lambspring

The Book of Lambspring is well known as one of the gems from the Musaeum Hermeticum published in 1625 by Lucas Jennis in Frankfurt, especially for its series of fifteen emblematic plates. It seems that this little book was first published, under the title De Lapide PhilosophicoTriga Chemicum (Prague 1599) compiled by the Frenchman Nicolas Barnaud prominent in the alchemical circles around Rudolf II. However, this tract and its emblemmatic drawings circulated in manuscript during the last two decades of the 16th century, as is attested by a number of copies dated to this period which still survive in libraries and special collections today.

The Book of Lambspring is a short work with an introductory section in verse and an emblem showing a threefold furnace. A clue to this is given in the title page illustration which shows a threefold furnace, Once we look at the emblems in this way distinct patterns can be seen.
