Chymia: Science and Nature in Medieval and Early Modern Europe (1450-1750) by Miguel Lopez-Perez,Didier Kahn,Mar Rey-Bueno



Miguel López Pérez, Didier Kahn and Mar Rey Bueno. In 1587, one hundred meters away from where the conference was held, stood the largest alchemical laboratory of Europe in the sixteenth century, with four hundred alembics working at the same time (Archivo del Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial, XI-9). Surprisingly enough, this has not been well-known among historians of alchemy out of Spain, and the same is true for most of Spanish history of alchemy in early modern times.

The present book consists of a selection of the papers presented then, shedding light on little-studied medieval and early modern texts, important alchemical doctrines such as medieval corpuscularianism, early modern spiritus mundi or the function of salt within chymical principles, and discussing such prominent figures as Paracelsus, Isaac Hollandus, Michael Sendivogius, Fontenelle or G. E. Stahl. Personal Name: Lo?pez Pe?rez, Miguel. Personal Name: Kahn, Didier.

The final aspect, the temple is science, is undoubtedly the one that has received least recognition on the part of scholars and historians throughout the ages, despite the significance of the chemical practice developed in the pharmacy and distillation laboratory founded by the King in 1570s. The monastery/palace of El Escorial will serve as a backdrop and co-host of this International Conference on Science and Nature in Early Modern Europe

Miguel López Pérez completed his PhD at the University Complutense of Madrid, Spain, in 1999, with a thesis on alchemy in early modern Spain: 'Alquimia, terapéutica y sanidad en la España de los Austrias Menores. He is currently preparing a book on early modern French alchemical circles and patronage, and another on the cultural context of alchemical debates in early modern France. Mar Rey Bueno completed her PhD at the University Complutense of Madrid in 2000 with a thesis entitled 'Tradición y Modernidad. La asistencia farmacéutica en la corte española de los siglos XVI y XVII,' receiving the Extraordinary Doctorate award of this University for her work.
