Alchemy and Chemistry in the 16th and 17th Centuries by Michela Pereira (auth.), Piyo Rattansi, Antonio Clericuzio

By Michela Pereira (auth.), Piyo Rattansi, Antonio Clericuzio (eds.)

The current quantity owes its ongm to a Colloquium on "Alchemy and Chemistry within the 16th and 17th Centuries", held on the Warburg Institute on twenty sixth and twenty seventh July 1989. The Colloquium all for a couple of chosen subject matters in the course of a heavily outlined chronological period: at the relation of alchemy and chemistry to drugs, philosophy, faith, and to the corpuscular philosophy, within the 16th and 17th centuries. The relatives among Medicina and alchemy within the Lullian treatises have been tested within the establishing paper by way of Michela Pereira, according to researches on unpublished manuscript assets within the interval among the 14th and seventeenth centuries. it really is numerous many years because the researches of R.F. Multhauf gave a widespread position to Johannes de Rupescissa in linking drugs and alchemy in the course of the thought of a quinta essentia. Michela Pereira explores the importance of the Lullian culture during this improvement and attracts recognition to the truth that the early Paracelsians had themselves famous a kin resemblance among the works of Paracelsus and Roger Bacon's scientia experimentalis and, certainly, a continuity with the Lullian tradition.
