Alchemy was not always classified as magic, but it was a significant field during the Renaissance that frequently intersected with magical practices. Alchemists attempted to produce gold or silver out of base metals like iron, which was both a physical and a spiritual process. The goal of alchemy was the creation of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone, a substance thought to bestowed feat of immortality and transmutation. Spiritual purification and perfection were also sought during alchemy.
These practitioners have played a significant role in the time’s intellectual landscape. Their work often combined scientific enquiry with mystical and occult practices, not only shaped contemporary thought but also laid the foundations for later scientific and occult traditions.
