Chemical Heritage Fdn.
Chymists and Chymistry Studies in the History of Alchemy and Early Modern Chemistry
Lawrence M. Principe (ed)
Chymistry (alchemy and early chemistry) is currently receiving an unprecedented amount of scholarly attention. Long-held misunderstandings are being replaced by a wealth of fresh perspectives, as scholars reveal alchemy’s crucial place on early modern culture and its contributions to early modern science. This volume brings together papers presented at an international conference by over 20 researchers. It features work on the issues of symbolism, textual exegesis, transmutation and the danger of fraud, as well as treatments of the intersections of alchemy with fine art, theology, archaeology, and gender. “Offers readers a wealth of new scholarship on this intriguing topic and glimpses of the frontiers in chymistry waiting to be explored.”
