Product Description

Transmission of Alchemy is a new literal Arabic to English translation from two versions of an ancient source-work known as The Epistle of Morienus, the Wise Monk, to Prince Khālid bin Yazīd.

The expression of alchemy preserved in these wonderful manuscripts was foundational to both Islamic and European alchemical traditions. The Epistle of Morienus is considered a primary historical eyewitness account of the momentous occasion when the torch of Byzantine alchemy was transmitted to the Islamic Empire. From there, it would evolve into its dynamic new, experimental and medicinal form as Islamic al-Kīmyāʼ.

Not only is it a record of alchemy's transmission to the rich Islamic culture of the Umayyad Caliphate during the 7th century, but also Islamic alchemy's transmission into Europe. The original Arabic form of The Epistle of Morienus is considered by many researchers to be one of the first - if not the first - of many initial alchemical texts translated into Latin during the 11th and 12th centuries.

The dialogue between Morienus and Prince Khālid holds the key to realizing alchemy as a model for mystic insight, be it framed in terms of Greek philosophical principles, Alexandrian Chrysopoeia or Christian mysticism - all of which Morienus harmonizes and wonderfully expresses with a startling wholeness. Somewhat Hermetic or Gnostic in tone, Morienus draws on these as well as Persian, Greek, Jewish and Egyptian sources of wisdom accurately and from memory in his dialogue with Prince Khālid.

Morienus' alchemical expression reflects several Alexandrian Chrysopoeian precedents, yet is surprisingly unique in its own right. The work also reveals itself as seamlessly marrying operative and mystic foundational theory with practical work in both alchemy and transcendent wisdom. Transmission of Alchemy will delight professionals and enthusiasts alike who share interest in alchemy, history, spirituality and mysticism.

Bonus Material

Originally scheduled as a separate book on its own, a new literal Latin-English translation of Cabala Mineralis, by Aaron Butler MA, MAR, is included in the Transmission of Alchemy. Aaron arduously examined every single word and word combination in his painstaking efforts to provide an incredibly accurate and new literal translation of the Cabala Mineralis. In addition, he included exhaustive and detailed footnotes explaining each translation. His efforts are sure to reveal nuances heretofore unavailable to most researchers, which will allow for a fresh new appreciation for the Cabala Mineralis. Researchers interested in the Cabala Mineralis will be delighted to find Aaron's translation and extensive footnotes incredibly insightful and revealing.
