Barbara Obrist, Visualization in Medieval Alchemy International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry, Vol. To ever charge anything for repeating any of it is a great sin and, indeed, insult to its original author. This text is in line with the symbolic alchemy that developed in the 14th century, particularly with the texts attributed to the Catalan physician Arnau de Vilanova, which establish an allegorical comparison between Christian mysteries and alchemical operations. by Hugo of Santalla as part of his translation of the Sirr al-khalīqa ( The Secret of Creation, original Arabic above). Medieval and early modern alchemists associated the Emerald Tablet with the creation of the philosophers' stone and the artificial production of gold.

The tablet was also translated into Latin as part of the longer version of the pseudo-Aristotelian Sirr al-asrār (Latin: Secretum Secretorum, original Arabic above). Thus, the ante-diluvian wisdom was transmitted, independently of the revelation made to Moses at Sinai. A third Latin version can be found in an alchemical treatise dating probably from the 12th century (although no manuscripts are known before the 13th or 14th century), the Liber Hermetis de alchimia (Book of Alchemy of Hermes). And certainly, it is of no use for philosophers to want to hide the science in their writings when the doctrine of the Holy Spirit operates. The translator of this version did not understand the Arabic word tilasm, which means talisman, and therefore merely transcribed it into Latin as telesmus or telesmum.

si terra fiat, eam ex igne subtili, qui omnem grossitudinem et quod hebes est antecellit, spatiosibus, et prudenter et sapientie industria, educite. A line from the Latin version, " Sic mundus creatus est" (So was the world created), plays a prominent thematic role in the series and is the title of the sixth episode of the first season. Though attributed to the legendary Hellenistic figure Hermes Trismegistus, the text of the Emerald Tablet first appears in a number of early medieval Arabic sources, the oldest of which dates to the late eighth or early ninth century. The earliest known version of the Emerald Tablet on which all later versions were based is found in pseudo-Apollonius of Tyana's Sirr al-khalīqa wa-ṣanʿat al-ṭabīʿa ( The Secret of Creation and the Art of Nature). Arabic versions [ edit ] A page from the Secret of Secrets ( Kitâb Sirr al-asrâr), with two charts to determine whether a patient will live or die based on the numerical value of their name.And as all things were by contemplation of one, so all things arose from this one thing by a single act of adaptation.

Hortulanus interprets "telesma" as "secret" or "treasure": "It is written afterward: 'The father of all telesma of the world is here,' that is to say: in the work of the stone is found the final path. Early modern versions of the tablet text [ edit ] Latin (Nuremberg, 1541) [ edit ] Latin text of the Emerald Tablet, from Johannes Petreius, De alchemia, Nuremberg, 1541. The discussions continue, and the treatises of Ole Borch and Kriegsmann are reprinted in the compilation Bibliotheca Chemica Curiosa (1702) by the Swiss physician Jean-Jacques Manget. In the frame story of the Sirr al-khalīqa, Balīnūs tells his readers that he discovered the text in a vault below a statue of Hermes in Tyana, and that, inside the vault, an old corpse on a golden throne held the emerald tablet. Commentaries and/or translations were published by, among others, Trithemius, Roger Bacon, Michael Maier, Albertus Magnus, and Isaac Newton.He continues his studies of ancient texts and in 1684 argues that Hermes Trismegistus is not the Egyptian Thoth but the Taaut of the Phoenicians, who is also the founder of the Germanic people under the name of the god Tuisto, mentioned by Tacitus. Around 1275–1280, Roger Bacon translated and commented on the Secret of Secrets, [25] and through a completely alchemical interpretation of the Emerald Tablet, made it an allegorical summary of the Great Work. Billy Carson understands little of the teachings and meanings of the great Hermes (Thoth) who gave away his wisdom for free. It also applies to the "curious figure" [41] of the German Gottlieb Latz, who self-published a monumental work Die Alchemie in 1869, [42] as well as the theosophist Helena Blavatsky [43] and the perennialist Titus Burckhardt.
