Alchemical Catechism

Alchemical Catechism Cover

Book: Alchemical Catechism by Baron Tschoudy

In his Ritual de la Haute Magie, chapter 19, Eliphas Levi, describes a Manuscript of Paracelsus supposedly in the Vatican, entitled "the Chemical Pathway or Manual". He claims that a this was transcribed by Sendivogius and used by Baron Tschoudy when composing the Hermetic Catechism in his Le Etoile Flamboyant ou la Societe des Franc-
Macons consideree sous tous les aspects, 1766. I have not been able to locate the Paraclesus work in the Vatican nor Sendivogius' transcription, however, the Hermetic Catechism of Baron Tschoudy is a fine piece of hermetic philosophy. The version here has been taken from A.E. Waite's Translation published in the two volume Hermetic
and Alchemical Writings of Paracelsus, which he heavily edited of masonic remarks of Tschoudy.
