Al-Kimia-The Mystical Islamic Essence of the Sacred Art Of Alchemy by John Eberly presents a condensed history of Alchemy told through concise biographies of early Sufi Masters.
Chapters examine occult areas of alchemical and spiritual interest such as Jafr, an exegetical Qur’anic science akin to Hebrew Qabala; the Qiyamat or ‘Great Resurrection’, of the heretical Ismaili sect; the contrary path of the saintly Malamatiyya or ‘Blameworthy Ones’; Hermetic Color Theory, and ‘Hidden’ art history.
A glossary of transliterated terms is appended that will greatly help the beginner as well as the advanced student of these subjects.
