Alchemy: The Mystery of Substance from Genesis to Revelation

By (author) Hermann Beckh; Translated by Alan Stott

The alchemical tradition of understanding and working with substances to perfect or purify them is given a new perspective in this fascinating history.Beckh draws on his extensive knowledge of eastern religion, weaving it into Christian spirituality to present a unique overview of alchemy. The beginning and the end of the Bible are grounded in visionary pictures which draw out the nature and meaning of substance. In a great sweep from the primal matter of creation, to the precious stones of the New Jerusalem, Beckh explores the essence of substance.This is the first time that Hermann Beckh’s work has been translated into English, making his ideas and insights accessible to a new readership.
