Paul of Taranto

Listen to our podcast episode here:

Paul of Taranto may have been one of the the “Pseudo-Gebers” and had an interesting theory of the composition of metals (basically mercury and sulphur) that would become canon to alchemical theory. It’s interesting for us to see a monk in the 13th century sitting in a lab going for reproducibility.

Sulphur-Mercury theory of metals.

Flattr this!
