P156- The operations of the medieval alchemists were the
last flickerings of a scientific tradition which

of sulphur and mercury were brought to fusion, not

scale within the great retort or womb of the earth
- The element of mercury in this operation was
represented by the spirit of the earth, which was
ceremonially wedded at certain seasons with the
