Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos: Excerpts from the Companion Volume to Am (Used)
by Khunrath, Heinrich
Publisher: Salamander and Sons
Book ID: 9780987520647, 0987520644
Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos: Excerpts from the Companion Volume to Amphitheatre of Eternal Wisdom.
Softcover. 8vo. 38pp. Stapled, Illustrated card covers. Illustrated in b&w. Edtion limited to 300 hand numbered copies. From the "Unearthed Arcana" series. Translated into English for the first time by Russell Yoder, Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos is initially concerned with Magnesia (the "Magnet of the Lord" and "universal raw Stone of the Wise that is to be found in Nature"), the Green Lion of Nature (the "fiery spark or ray of the World's Soul, or Light of Nature" that is "the naturally, conceivably catholic All") and Our Chaos or Hyle ("the World's First Water ... [the] Fountain [from which] all material things have their first origin" which is the "Fundament or Foundation, the Basis of the World that God Himself put in place ... [which] the edifice of the entire earth is set upon …").
Embodying a kind of Christianised natural magic influenced as much by kabbalah, natural philosophy and the works of Paracelsus as by Lutheran pietism and devotion, the Divinely inspired and particular revelations of Hyleal, Pri-material, Catholic, or Universal Natural Chaos extend to include heavenly influences and the timing of the work, Azoth or Living Mercury ("not quicksilver, nor something taken out of or from him, but Mercurius - that which the Philosophers speak of!"), Salt of Magnesia ("often called Sal Petra or Sal Peter, Sal Alkali, Sal Gemma or the Noble Rock-salt ... from the radical Humidity of the whole World"), and the artful and natural elevation of plants, animals and minerals "to the highest Natural Perfection" towards "true Regeneration and more than perfect Multiplication of Metals [and] an exceedingly powerful Universal Medicine ...". Includes a brief but important tract in verse 'from F.R.C.' on the subject of Our Chaos - Hyle - published as part of The Golden Rose (1704), almost 100 years after the publication of Khunrath's Amphitheatrum, and exactly 90 years after the appearance of the Rosicrucian manifesto Fama Fraternitatis R.C. (1614).
