E13 Shannon Grimes: Zosimos of Panopolis

December 31st, 2018




We were fortunate enough to be joined by Dr Shannon Grimes to discuss her new book: Becoming Gold. Zosimos of Panopolis and the alchemical arts in Roman Egypt.
We discussed the historical Egyptian backdrop of the book, the views of Zosimos on magic, astronomy, daimons and of course, the visions of Zosimos. She helped define Alchemy during the early 4th century and really brings Zosimos to life.
