Giovanni Aurelio Augurello (1441–1524) and Renaissance Alchemy
For such an extensively studied and influential theological phenomenon, the Cabala, transliteration of the Hebrew , also spelt Kabbalah, Qabalah, Gabalia is still largely. One can see in searching for texts that compare the two arts of Cabala and alchemy, it is an area that have been explored even less. To quote Gershom Scholem , regarded as one of the greatest figures in Western. Loosely defined as a cosmology and esoteric theosophy, the Cabala claims to illuminate the relationship of mankind to intermediaries, an infinite, transcendental Godhead and His various levels of revelation. The whole system has of course been developed, reinterpreted and redefined in the centuries since its inception. The confluence of Cabala and alchemy provides much scope for study and deserves further research. For the purpose of this essay I will focus on the syncretic approach to the Lurianic Cabala by Christian writers in the Renaissance and its parallels with alchemy, providing a historical account of the thematic similarities of the two disciplines and by looking at the alchemical themes and motifs employed in a few primarily Cabalistic texts.

Linden has recently argued. Of course, the second type was also "useful" in that it attempted to discover medicines to cure man's bodily ills, even as it worked to change him or her spiritually. Another major distinction can be drawn between two types of alchemists and is mentioned in almost all alchemical texts of the period—the difference between the false alchemist, who knows nothing of the art and robs his clients of their gold with the promise of making more gold, and the true alchemist, who seeks for the Elixir, or a universal panacea for human ills, and does not charge anything for his most precious medicine.
Ad Vincentium Quirinum P.V. Vellus Aureum
Inriched with Figures representing the Colours to rise as they suooesstvely appear in the Practise of this Blessed Work. This wise and sage Doctor saith that the Inquisitors of this terrestrial Son shall receive as much or more fruit and contentment of the Learned Nutrients sprang from the provident Tutilage of this more than desired and without doubt Celestial Stream of aimabile food agreeable to the delightfull and sweet breastmilk, then he doth discontent and mistake in the dull discontent and mistake in the dull sound of the Ignorant sorts who are not sufficiently enabled to Judge discreetly and to apprehend the depth of so profound, grand and Occult a Mystery; their Light not being subtil enough to perceive this Subject and their Brains not Judicious enough to prize this inestimable Pearl. But rather only nourished, elevated, comforted and satisfied with vain hope or to speak better they being held back by Bitter Juice of Ignorance, are made incapable of the more Solid food for to direct them and to return them again to their proposed. It were better and more fit-table for these dulipates to have considered it: Lost thy charge before they began their Labour not to have any thing, how false should it be from our Divine Work but rather to have retired from the fleeting Garden of the delightfull Hesperides. The senseless noise of their Inabilities incapable of the propositions too subtil for their pates of our oppollent Work in regard of the disposition of their feeble fancys. This Celestial Gift doth not at all amaze us in the General Canopy of the whole world in gross; but in the retail, considering and ought to be dispised, and especially favouring and making heros of others as of those that may be known to be the true Sons of this Science, calling them the Blessed of the most happy Rays of the Golden Branches from the which the others are driven away, as from -thier Sacred Fires. RASIS saith not less in the Treatise he made of the Light of Lights; now ought saith he, so to presume of him as also to run so that assured hope lest he be plainly blameable for his evil.
