The current quantity owes its ongm to a Colloquium on "Alchemy and Chemistry within the 16th and 17th Centuries", held on the Warburg Institute on twenty sixth and twenty seventh July 1989. The Colloquium fascinated by a few chosen topics in the course of a heavily outlined chronological period: at the relation of alchemy and chemistry to drugs, philosophy, faith, and to the corpuscular philosophy, within the 16th and 17th centuries. The kinfolk among Medicina and alchemy within the Lullian treatises have been tested within the beginning paper by way of Michela Pereira, in keeping with researches on unpublished manuscript assets within the interval among the 14th and seventeenth centuries. it's a number of a long time because the researches of R.F. Multhauf gave a favorite function to Johannes de Rupescissa in linking drugs and alchemy in the course of the inspiration of a quinta essentia. Michela Pereira explores the importance of the Lullian culture during this improvement and attracts awareness to the truth that the early Paracelsians had themselves well-known a relations resemblance among the works of Paracelsus and Roger Bacon's scientia experimentalis and, certainly, a continuity with the Lullian tradition.

In Bohme, whose relation to Paracelsus is immediately apparent, the visible and material world of nature becomes the signatura of God, the corporeal substratum in which the ineffable Ungrund of the Divinity had to become incarnate to realize and manifest Himself; the corporeal substratum makes Him known in that it is His sign. 73 Returning to Paracelsus, it would be difficult to minimize the importance From Alchemy to Paracelsus 29 of the theme of knowledge of the invisible through the visible, the internal through the external, in his works.
