The Golden Fleece and Alchemy (Suny Series in Western Esoteric Traditions) by Antoine Faivre


pdf epub fb2 djvu



This book traces the Golden Fleece myth from late paganism through medieval and Renaissance alchemical and masonic interpretations. We follow the changing fashions in the history of initiation as well as in mythology. Faivre connects politics, chivalry, the age of exploration, Renaissance architecture and iconography, the hermeneutics of eighteenth century Germany and France, and modern practitioners of alchemy.

This book will be welcomed by modern practitioners of alchemy and the occult as well as by scholars of esotericism.
