Alchemy Transformed Into Two Areas of Scientific Exploration, Chemistry & Psychology:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
Alchemy was an important area of scientific study and experiment in Medieval and Renaissance periods. As in all scientific areas, the journey of alchemy was complex and emerged in modern times in the sciences of chemistry and psychology. As a Renaissance scholar I was, and continue to be, fascinated by both ancient and more modern illustrations of alchemical processes. Atlas Obscura brings us a fascinating series of illustrated manuscripts and books about this intriguing science. Enjoy this feast for the mind and the eyes. Check out the exhibition at the Getty Research Institute in California.
