Splendor Solice: "The Parables" - with Brian Cotnoir

Splendor Solis, 1530-35 by Salomon Trismosin, is the most magnificent alchemical illuminated manuscript that depicts the Great Work, i.e. the making of the Philosopher’s Stone in 22 enigmatic images. 

This evening we will examine the seven “Parables.” These are seven images and text that outline a deeper theory of the practice and are amongst the most surreal images in the book.
