Fludd's creation theory. Artwork showing the "fiat lux" creation theory described by the English physician, astrologer, and mystic Robert Fludd (1574-1637). A mixture of religion and mysticism, the theory is based on the Latin phrase fiat lux (let there be light), found in the Genesis book of the Judeo-Christian bible. A holy bird is seen flying in a circle from the word "fiat". When the circle is completed, light will shine forth. Artwork published in Fludd's philosophical treatise Utriusque cosmi historia (1617).
