Drawing on legal trial documents, contracts, laboratory inventories, satires, and vernacular alchemical treatises, Alchemy and Authority within the Holy Roman Empire situates the typical alchemists, mostly invisible to trendy students in the past, on the middle of the improvement of early smooth technological know-how and trade. Reconstructing the workaday global of entrepreneurial alchemists, Tara Nummedal indicates how allegations of fraud formed their practices and customers. those debates not just show vastly different understandings of what the “real” alchemy used to be and who may perhaps perform it; in addition they attach a collection of little-known practitioners to the most important questions on trade, belief, and highbrow authority in early smooth Europe.
