George Ripley was a 15th century alchemist who produced alchemical works containing rhymed cryptic verses describing the process to create the legendary Philosophers Stone. In the 16th century the Elizabethan polymath John Dee created pictographic scrolls based on Ripley’s verses. The figure at the top of the scroll is alleged to be Hermes Trismegistus the mythical founder of alchemy and patron of Hermeticism. Image: Wikimedia Commons
