The Aurea Catena Homeri, written in German by Dr. Anton Josef Kirchweger, was first printed in 1723, though it was distributed in a handwritten format prior to that time. It is said to be one of the most important books ever created giving insight into alchemy-the idea that all creation, no matter what its nature, is closely interconnected, that a deeply secret connection pervades all of nature, that one thing relates to the next and things depend upon each other. In "The Golden Chain of Homer," editors Gregory S. Hamilton and Philip N. Wheeler provide an English translation of Aurea Catena Homeri, complete with frequent, detailed footnotes and extensive commentary that offers a detailed analysis and insight into Kirchweger's work, considered a masterpiece of alchemical literature. "The Golden Chain of Homer" shows Kirchweger's book in a new, enlightening way. Through this translation, it becomes easier to understand alchemical principles and unveil the mysteries that shroud the science of alchemy.

Nature comprehends the visible and invisible Creatures of the Whole universe. What we call Nature especially, is the universal fire or Anima Mundi, filling the whole system of the Universe, and therefore is a Universal Agent, omnipresent, and endowed with an unerring instinct, and manifests itself in fire and Light. It is the First creature of Divine Omnipotence.

This Chaotic Waters are commonly called Dew, Rain, Showers, Hail, Snow: But really and truly it is the true regenerated Chaos, the genuine spirit and Anima Mundi animates it, who generates, preserves, kills, and regenerates all sublunary Creatures agreeably to their original form, by means of their Seed or Sperm, and this Anima Mundi is Nature truly.

Consisting of two essays, this book investigates the impact on Holderlin's poetic imagery of the Homeric metaphor of the golden chain of nature. It contrasts A. O. Lovejoy's ideas on "the great chain of being" with the results of recent research. It also announces discovery of an unknown source to which Holderlin was indebted: an early seventeenth-century Jesuit devotional tract. The study considers the full range of the poetic work, including the poems, Hyperion, and Empedokles. The book is illustrated with two figures, and concludes with two appendices of verbal data, a bibliography, and indexes of names and of Holderlin's works.

Academics and lay people curious to learn more about the philosophies at the root of William Shakespeare's work will discover a new theory on his intent in this critical analysis. Taking the position that the Christian-Platonic philosophy of love is the permeating philosophy in Shakespeare's work, this analysis links the commentaries of scholar-priest Marsilio Ficino and other key Renaissance writings to specific speeches and sonnets penned by Shakespeare to support its argument. The analysis further claims that it was this pervading Christian-Platonic philosophy, originally expounded by Pythagoras, Plato, and Plotinus, that enabled Shakespeare to write with clarity about the universal themes of harmony and disharmony between nations and princes, and the internal conflicts of the human mind and soul. In addition, classical references and images identify the true Promethean fire—romantic attraction.
