    The Map

    Some of you showed interest in creating a map on which we can mark alchemy related spots all over the globe.

    Here it is:

    THE MAP

    Everyone reading this should be able to add his places. Lets see if this works and try to make this the first and best alchemy related map in the world (see megalomaniac thread )!

    To the moderators: It is possible to embed the map in this post IF wanted with this link:

    <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/d/embed?mid=1K6fTfz6qS6DLasRnXy46-kJ8vFDG1hUr" width="640" height="480"></iframe>

    If not wanted, you can delete the link, or I will do it tomorrow.

    How do you define "Alchemy related spots"?

    What makes a spot "Alchemy related"?

    What a great idea, Florius! I am always very interested in finding such spots when I travel somewhere.

    I would say, "Alchemy related" includes Hermetism in general.

    The definition should not be too strict.
    For example I imagine some kind of order within the places:

    "Architecture": Fulcanelli's places, House Flamel, Some houses in prague,....

    "Rare and original books": the libraries where to find them.

    "Art": Museums, exhibitions with alchemical content

    There should be a short description of what to find at a place.

    Edit:
    What I think wouldn't be helpful is something like "I felt a special kind of energy at that place near a tree in the black forest."
    Though we can talk about if we want to have these kind of places collected in another subgenre like those above.

    Another not useful thing to do might be to locate all possible hermes/mercury statues or churches with pictures of the holy trinity. But on the other hand, why not? What do you think?

    Here is a good location:

    The Ritman Library, or, Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica — Amsterdam, Netherlands.
    Notes: Rare manuscript room viewable upon appointment, also, you can find a copy of the Alchemy Forums Anthology in their collection. I believe Salazius’ book might be in there too.
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    The Map is up!

    See first post for it and further instructions!

    I just added two categories and four locations to get the idea.
    Will add more once in a while. Feel free to add yours! Yell, if you need help, or something is/goes wrong and I will change the modus operandi!

    FF, what an awesome idea. I was reading Fulcanelli's Mysteries and wondering about how cool it would be to tour of the different cathedrals mentioned in his book. Also get to see all the things he didn't mention. Someone interested in a 'pilgrimage' could sketch out an itinerary based on the map.

    Thank you for organizing and starting the map.
