  1. This keeps haunting me...

    These coincidences always happen, so I'm pretty good at just rolling with it, but this is getting ridiculous. This first image came up as a Instagram post from CuriousityStream. It has nothing to do with Alchemy... its an ad from an upcoming documentary on Woodstock:




    This one is from a few days before that.. I know what I was doing at the time, I was looking for a Donum Dei manuscript, Arsenal Ms. 975. I have no idea ...

  5. More Battle of Scorpius and Orion...



    I did mention in the last post how many different versions of the story of the Battle of Scorpius and Orion there are.. While trying to stay under the character limit on my last post, I inadvertently deleted the story I liked the best, compared to the imagery from the manuscript of Virgil's Aeneid. You'll see at the beginning it's mentioning Jupiter, Neptune, and Mercury, who are the subjects of some of the nicest pictures:
