The AlchemEast project is devoted to the study of alchemical theory and practice as it appeared and developed and it is designed to write the so far untold first chapters of the history of ancient alchemy. The project will offer a radically new vision of ancient alchemy as a dynamic and diversified art that developed across different technical and scholastic traditions. This new representation will allow us to connect ancient alchemy with medieval and early modern alchemy and thus fully reintegrate ancient alchemy in the history of pre-modern alchemy as well as in the history of science more broadly.
