Few women in the history of the sciences have been cited as broadly and with such resounding support as two, now little-known, third century figures: Mary the Prophetess and Cleopatra the Physician. Both gifted physicians, alchemists, scientists, and engineers, their experiments, findings, and technological developments underpin modern chemistry and alchemical explorations alike. In this presentation, we will explore detailed accounts of their respective prowess, intellect, and magical virtues, and consider their remarkable legacy: spanning almost two millennia alongside descriptions of discoveries and achievements mentioned in the same breath as those of Agathodaemon, Pseudo-Democritus, and Hermes Trismegistus.Furthermore, we will establish a potential foundation of a spiritual and chemical practicum centered on the words, teachings, and spiritual guidance of these matriarchs. The intention here is to not only honor their remarkable place in history, but consider the ways in which they can be petitioned as folk saints and patrons to modern sorcerers, alchemists, and folk magicians, being given their due as the historical founders of the alchemical arts. This array of experiments, workings, prayers, and offerings—drawn from B. Key's experience in both necromancy and biochemistry alike—will be taught after the historical overview, so that the seeker can immediately implement and undertake a closer relationship with their spirits and the mysteries of their alchemical cunning.This is a 90-120 minute intermediate level lecture and workshopAbout the Presenter:Through alchemy, necromancy, folk magic, and witchcraft, B. Key is a witch and sorcerer focused primarily on those traditions that hunt, find, and hide treasure of all kinds. Guided by saints and invigorated by devils, with an alchemical furnace lit by the hellfire of Quimbanda, he works at the crossroads of old world grimoires and the folk magical practices of the new world. His academic training and experience in biochemistry further facilitates his passion for tinkering with sorcerous techniques in pursuit of ever more precise results and manifestations.
