The Alchemists - Part Five

November 5, 2019

To what extent was Alchemy complicit in the fall of the Aristocracy and the birth of the French Revolution? In this episode, you'll hear about The Count de St Germaine, Cagliostro and the Affair of the Diamond Necklace, and how Italians resolve civil conflicts.

In this Season of Esoteric Reads, I'm reading "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds" by Charles Mackay, first published in 1841. On tonight's episode, we conclude our discussion of The Alchemists.

The Elixir Vitae... The Philosopher's Stone... All will be revealed.
