Synopsis: From Alchimistiches Medaillon to Zuccari, delve into the mysteries of alchemy -- the ancient mystical art considered to be one of the four esoteric paths to enlightenment. Closely related to witchcraft, alchemy is neither a science nor a philosophy, but rather a striving for perfection on a physical and metaphysical level. Alchemy is about transforming materials -- metals as well as people. This generously illustrated dictionary features entries on laboratory operations and well-known alchemists as well as information on the framework that made alchemy possible -- the brotherhoods, the sacred places, the transmitters, collectors and patrons, the texts and publishers, and something of the language, including cabalistic and glyphic. A great deal of emphasis is laid on pictures and emblems, which are keys to understanding the path of alchemy. Anyone interested in exploring the marvels of this elusive pursuit will find this unique volume to be an invaluable resource.

From Library Journal: This dictionary provides over 500 entries on alchemy, defined as an esoteric path with two different levels. The physical level is concerned with transforming and purifying metals while the metaphysical level is concerned with transforming and purifying humans. The entries are well written and informative, with copious line drawings and some colored illustrations; information is given on alchemy and its history and influences, including the Kabbala, astrology, the Renaissance view of learning, and the occult. An excellent resource for students of history or other more esoteric studies; recommended for reference collections serving both undergraduate and graduate students and researchers of history, religion, philosophy and the occult.?Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology Lib., Cortland
