Judgement played a large part in the spiritual and scientific approaches to alchemy. We will be discussing the ways in which judgement shaped the laboratories, patronage, and reputations of alchemists from their peers and patrons. We will also explore how alchemists used the physical experiments as a place of judgement and advancement for their spiritual practices. We will spend some time viewing art that depicts conflict and conjoining in both literal and metaphorical beakers used in alchemical experiments.
