From the publisher: "In his lifetime Paracelsus wrote many alchemical treatises and traveled extensively in Europe. His unfailing pursuit of Hermetic praxis and his dogged criticism of sophists and physicians alike brought infamy upon him. Yet despite his rough and tumble lifestyle Paracelsus was responsible for emphasizing the medicinal aspect of the alchemical art while at the same time expanding the lexicon of terminology used by alchemists, magicians and mystics even to this day. In bringing these two Paracelsian texts together Ouroboros presents an engaging view into the world of a Renaissance alchemist. "The Aurora of the Philosophers" has long been considered a classic among his texts and his Prophecies are unforgiving in their visionary explication." Unused copy. Fine condition in Fine dust jacket. Item #62965
