In Freemasonry, this enigmatic word, Tubal-cain is often referred to. I have recently been reading Jackson/Howard's The Pillars of Tubal-Cain. Much association is given to the Fallen Angels and the link between the children of the gods [namely, humans] and the Lords from Heaven.

Does anyone know of other literature(s) that explores this concept?

Anyone care to give their own interpretations based the etymology of words?

Another spelling of the word is Tubal Qayin. Here, I'm posting a photo I took from this previously mentioned book. It's quite good, detailed.

I couldn't actually paste the photo inside the Thread. Can anyone help?

There was a member using that name: TubalCain (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/member.php?40-TubalCain) (but seems to be inactive nowadays).

The picture you wanted to post:

Thanks theFool. That's the photo.

It's a compilation of rather interesting images, icons, sayings like the one stating: "Live thov in love thy royal self - law". A wolf-head on top of this rooted tree, for example. One can probably do a thesis on this drawing alone, so many details.

Lots to say on this.
Look into correspondences with Cain (and Abel), Kukulkan (plumed serpent) of americas, Vulcan of alchemy...

I stumbled upon a rather short - that's even an overstatement - excerpt from Dr. Chappel of New John Fletcher College claiming that Tubal-Cain should be "honored as the first chemist of record," goes onto say how many references are made in the Bible on chemical processes, seven metals, etc.
