When alchemy emerged in Roman Egypt, early adepts knew their wisdom came from the Egyptian temples. Yet these deep roots in ancient Egypt have remained obscure, doubted even by many. Journeying through the beautiful temples at Abu Simbel and Dendara, dedicated to the love goddess Hathor, and delving into the Osirian mysteries enshrined in Ramesses VIís tomb at Thebes, Hathorís Alchemy unearths this transformational lost knowledge. Greek, Islamic and medieval European alchemists all drew on its Ďwisdom of the queení, including the authors of Aurora consurgens and the Rosarium philosophorum. Explored, too, is alchemyís profound influence in Sufism. Richly illustrated in colour throughout, this groundbreaking book reunites ancient Egypt and alchemy within the western Hermetic tradition.
