To Be Exalted in the Fire: Maria Prophetissa and Cleopatra the Alchemist$7.00
"To Be Exalted in the Fire" is a 14 page booklet written by Eliza Swann and lavishly illustrated with alchemical plates and poems. This book is a celebration of two female Alchemists who were pioneers in their field: Maria Prophetissa and Cleopatra the Alchemist. This book gives biographical information about these two visionaries, as well as a meditation dedicated to each of them.
The practice of Alchemy is at least 5,000 years old, and has been practiced extensively throughout Asia, Africa, and Europe. Until Alchemy reached medieval Europe, it was practiced by all genders equally, and many great schools of Alchemy were run by women. "To Be Exalted in the Fire" is a celebration of two of these pioneers in the fields of science and spirit - many more remain unknown as their schools and books were burned out of our histories thousands of years ago.
