Caption

Engraving showing Mary the Jewess (also known as Maria Prophetessa), considered to be the first non-fictional alchemist recorded. She lived at some time during the first to third centuries, but no reliable sources have more detail. She is referred to by almost all the early alchemists in terms of respect and reverence. This engraving comes from 'Symbola aureae' by Michael Maier, published at Frankfurt in 1617.
