The Coming of Elias Artist
by Frater L.
The late medieval and early Renaissance period in Europe saw radical transformations in traditional gnostic/hermetic thought and practice. As medieval craft guild knowledge and tradition was transformed into “speculative” masonry, so mineral and metallurgical techniques led to the emergence of what would become known as “alchemy”. In both cases, this remodelling and rebirth can be symbolised by the figure of Elias Artist“ ; in this first article we look at the origins of this symbolic figure. The second article will treat more closely with the role of Elias Ashmole in these transformations, in our Autumnal Equinox issue on “alchemy”.

Healing in the Hermetic Tradition
by Alex Sumner
There is a long tradition of Healing in Hermeticism, which is intimately linked to Astrology and the Qabalah. The author argues that true Hermetic healing is superior in many respects to what is commonly known as “modern medicine” - and demonstrates how the modern Hermeticist may access the healing art in a practical manner.
