The Book of Pictures. Mushaf as-suwar by Zosimos of Panopolis. Edition of the Pictures & Introductio (New)
by Abt, Theodor
Publisher: Daimon Verlag
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9783952260869, 395226086X
Please inquire for availability
The images published here are from the almost complete manuscript of the Mushaf as-suwar, one of the oldest available manuscripts of perhaps the first Greek alchemist.
In different places, Zosimos advises this female student Theosebeia to ponder the meaning of his symbolic explanations, through which he answers her questions. His images complement the dialogue and clarify the meaning of his teaching.
We have here a highly interesting transmission of knowledge in the form of image and word.
