內容簡介

書名即開宗明義點出,本書談的是煉金術與神祕主義──大眾對於煉金術一知半解,卻又對這種神奇讓人嘆為觀止的煉金術,充滿好奇與想像,忍不住想一探究竟,然而浩瀚如海的術語與典故,卻又不易讓人親近。

本書作者Alexander Roob不主張也不否認煉金術與神祕主義的信仰存在,以引人入勝的描述,帶領讀者橫跨中世紀的基督教神祕主義,進行一趟最神奇的煉金術之旅,從醫學、化學、光學和色彩理論等技術層面解釋煉金術,也談到煉金術被人類當作是神聖技術,曾被誤解為具有超能力的魔法師,或屬於某種神祕團體,更從希臘神赫爾墨斯Hermes來解釋煉金術師常貼赫爾墨斯封條在他們的原料上,現代的煉金術士為了表達敬意,則以Hermetic來代表某種配方是機密不可外留。

從歷史角度來研究煉金術對以往人類文明貢獻的廣度,以及它提供藝術家和科學家的靈感,是這本書想要傳達的重要意義。

Signs and wonders: A fantastic journey through the history of esoteric lore
 
The Hermetic Museum takes readers on a magical mystery tour spanning an arc from the medieval cosmogram and images of Christian mysticism, through the fascinating world of alchemy to the art of the Romantic era. The enigmatic hieroglyphs of cabalists, Rosicrucians, and freemasons are shown to be closely linked with the early scientific illustrations in the fields of medicine, chemistry, optics, and color theory. Even for those with no knowledge of the fascinating history of alchemy, this book is a delight to explore. Each richly illustrated chapter begins with an introduction and quotes from alchemists by specialist Alexander Roob. The roots of surrealism and many other more recent artistic movements can be found in this treasure trove.
