In modern society, most people probably don’t think of alchemy and astrology as an essential part of medical practice. But that wasn’t always the case! On May 3, come to Archives and Rare Books to learn more about the role these esoteric fields of study played in Renaissance medicine – who knows, you might find the secret to making the Philosopher’s Stone!
