Epigraph

Nota bene . . . : Mark well, in the art of our magisterium nothing is concealed by the philosophers except the secret of the art which may not be revealed to all and sundry. For were that to happen, that man would be accursed; he would incur the wrath of God and perish of the apoplexy. Wherefore all error in the art arises because men do not begin with the proper substance, and for this reason you should employ venerable Nature, because from her and through her and in her is our art born and in naught else: and so our magisterium is the work of Nature and not of the worker. (As translated in Carl Jung’s “The Psychology of the Transference,” The Practice of Psychotherapy (trans. R.F.C. Hull).)

Fragment 20

Peregrinus: a foreigner, an alien.

Fragment 29

Quam angusta porta . . . : Matt 7:14 - “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”

Asparges me . . . : Psalms 51:7 - “Thou shalt sprinkle me with hysop, and I shall be cleansed: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Osculum sacerum: sacred kiss.

Inlumina oculos meos . . . : Psalms 13:3b - “Enlighten my eyes that I never sleep in death.”

Estate ergo . . . : Matt 5:48a - “Be ye therefore perfect”

Fragment 42

ferebatur super aquas: Gen. 1:2 - “moved over the waters”
