The great work of the alchemists. A fantastic journey through the history of esoteric lore The Hermetic Museum takes its readers on a magical mystery tour through the labyrinths of the imagination, spanning an arc from the mediaeval cosmogram and images of Christian mysticism, through the fascinating world of alchemy to the art of the Romantic era. The enigmatic hieroglyphs of cabbalists, Rosicrucians and freemasons are shown to be closely linked with the early scientific illustrations in the fields of medicine, chemistry, optics and colour theory.
